    Great ambience. Friendly staff. Dishes were good. Green curry with beef cheeks and larb dish and tom yam soup were very good. Fish dish and pad thai were average. Had a very enjoyable dinner experience. Would return and reccommend.

    Food was food, service as well but, even that the restaurant accepted our réservation at 8pm, we were asked to speed up with our dinner. We were asked to order coffee during our main dish because kitchen will be closed. It was 9:30pm …!

    Though Jumbo Thai has changed ownership over the past few months, the restaurant has maintained its "very-high-standards", and remains one of the best "up-market" Thai restaurants in Brisbane. The quality of food is equivalent to many 5-Star Thai restaurants in Thailand (a country my wife & I have visited more than fifty times since 1991).

    A selection of excellent entree options on the per person purchase, and a very satisfying pad thai option, alongside an extraordinarily good crab fried rice. Well worth the experience

    My colleagues and I used to go to Jumbo 2-3 times a month for the banquet. This time we were told it was minimum 4 people so we couldn't have it. We then ordered 3 spring rolls ($12), 1 dim sim ($7) and 2 Pork Bao ($16). All were normal size and the dim sim was done in 2 bites - the "salmon roe" consisted of 2 tiny pearls. The food was nice, but SO overpriced. The spring rolls were just the same as you get from the frozen food section of Woolies! Mains were the same deal. Beef Cheek Massaman (no rice) was $36 and had 5 chunks of beef in it. The vegetable fried rice was $18 and was bland. Such a shame - used to be great but we were told there was new management. It showed too - the place used to be pumping but on Friday it was only half full. Won't be going back.

    Not up to the standard that we first experienced here about 6 - 12 months ago. Cocktails were brilliant then, now disappointing. Wine we selected was not available. Dish we selected was not available. But the food we did have was still excellent. The prices here are on the high side, so expectations are also high.
