One of the best Green Curries we have had, the way they should be. Hot and not too creamy. The flavours in the steamed fish dish were amazing also. Will definitely be back.

A busy Tuesday night, so book. Our favourites were pork on skewers, whole fish and beef sirloin. Fried rice was very nice as well. There is heat in the food but we coped.

The food was good but we thought the mango sticky rice was just a little dry. We asked for a small pot of cream (and showed the staff member) the size of the chinese tea cup which we had. Perhaps a communication problem but as she looked at her supervisor of whom I had clear view of the answer was "no" - that was the way it was served. Not very impressed by this and the slow service.

We have been to this restaurant several times now and recommended friends go as well. The food is always fresh and delicious. This time we tried the pork ribs and omg they were to die for! Love the salads and we have never had a bad experience. Always busy so best to book ahead. Great value for money.

The food, service and restaurant are great. The music was a bit too loud and not really relaxing but everything else more than made up for it. The Pad Thai was delicious, probably the best pad Thai I’ve eaten. I’d definitely go again.

This restaurant has been our favourite since it opened = we love that we can book now - we have joined a queue many times but it is a bonus to arrive to a table just for our group and be greeted by Jun and cheerful and helpful staff - the food never fails to impress

Consistently good food! It’s hard to try new things, when everything eaten is begged to be ordered again. Service was warm and genuine

Very yummy food. The pork ribs were excellent with a very rich tamarind sauce. The massaman was also enjoyable. Very glad I booked as the cafe was full at 6:15pm.

Yum, yum, yum! All the dishes ranging from chicken green curry, pork ribs, crying tiger, and tofu dishes were delicious. Well flavoured and contained good spices. Service was amiable and attentive too. We were a group of seven, and the noise level was good enough to hear one another. Will come again.

This was my 2nd time at Khao Pla in the past month and both times it was disappointing. Despite ordering a ‘less’ spicy item from the menu both times, it was extremely spicy and borderline inedible. The service was very poor; our food took 40 mins and staff were not very attentive or apologetic. The only positive was the dessert; the banana and nutell roti was delicious! Overall, I’d recommend Khao Pla if you like spicy food, but if you struggle with spice, I’d avoid it or order boiled rice!

Service was ok, most of the food came out on time for my group except mine which came out really late almost completely after the rest of my group had finished their meals, it was the wrong dish and the waitress didn’t even recall taking my order. I had to get up and talk to them about 6 times to get my meal. Needless to say this place needs to work on large orders. The food was delicious though.

Good spicy Thai food.Ok for me as I like spicy food , but some people might find it too spicy.
A bit noisy , but I like the open windows & the bigger premises. the renovations really work..Would definitely recommend . Booking is essential as it is popular. There was a long que then we went.
Service was very efficient

Best Thai food we’ve eaten in Australia, absolutely delicious. Great choice of dishes to choose from, so reasonably priced. The Pork ribs are to die for, the sauce is unctuous, finger licking good. We always have trouble making our selection from the menu as everything is scrumptious.

Food was fantastic but background music was way too noisy. No need for blaring loud music when the restaurant is full and busy.
