    Food was lovely, great sized portions. Have to say was disappointed as we booked through open table months before we arrived and was told there was no seats inside. Tables outside are very wobbly so this needs to be looked at. Waitress informed we needed to book a table inside when booking however this does not state anywhere

    I have been back to sim tam gai close to five times now. The food is outstanding - the most amazing sauces you’ve ever tasted, deliciously cooked meats and the coconut margarita is 10/10. Service is always outstanding, friendly and with big warm smiles. Don’t mind the car park - it’s part of the charm. In my top three places on the Gold Coast!

    Food is amazing as always, service was very poor. We had one round of drinks and that was it, even after we repetedly asked for more. Cannot go hear any more due to such bad service which is a shame.

    The food was of a high standard in terms of flavours, temperature, & freshness. We enjoyed sharing our meals together. There was also attention to detail with small things like coriander & caviar added. We really appreciated the thoughtfulness in each dish.

    Food was unbelievable!! Service was great, all the staff were so lovely! Such a quaint little restaurant but we had such a great night! The only downfall was that a man who seemed to be the owner came in late in our meal and hung around the entrance to the kitchen. He seemed quite rude to the staff and was clapping at them to work harder, and making wierd comments to them. He was serving him self wine and hanging around the bar. He looked a bit unkept. He tainted the vine. But other than that we couldnt fault it and we will certainly be back!!

    Amazing food with a depth of flavor rarely seen on the GC. Everyone I have introduced to this restaurant has been blown away by each & every dish. Service this time around was very warm & inviting with Jake. Thanks to the whole team for another awesome dining experience.

    The restaurant is closed all over Christmas so we were unable to eat there, so many people were turning up with a booking made on line like us - to find the restaurant shut for a week. We should never have been allowed to make a reservation!

    I am a fan of Green Thai curry. Som Tam Gai’s offering was the best I have ever had. A thunder storm came over, we were alfresco, the staff had us inside in two minutes continuing a lovely meal.

    Food is really good but service needs some work. Have come to dine here twice now and both times the waitress has forgotten our drinks and we have had to remind her for them and so we only received our drinks towards the end of the meal and if we had received them earlier we may have ordered another round. Very yummy flavours but found some of the meat quite fatty. Worth a visit though!
