A neighbourhood restaurant that embraces the slow, easy life of the Thai canalside in Melbourne’s city centre. Kick back and enjoy down-to-earth Thai dishes that embrace simplicity and integrity towards authentic ingredients. Thai Tide is inspired by Thailand’s famous “floating markets” where endless boats, laden with mouthwatering foods, paddle up to waterside homes to sell their goods. Life is good. Food is abundant. Calm is assured. Enjoy the sweet pleasure of simple moments and home-cooked meals at the gentle and delicious Thai Tide

Disappointed.. pad Thai was overly sweet with not enough tofu or crunchy vegetables. Lemon on side rather than
Lime.

Servers barely came to the table to ask if we needed anything. The waitress sat us down and didn’t explain anything or welcomed us. She just walked away expecting us to realise it’s an online menu/pay. We had to come up to the kitchen to ask for chopsticks and napkins. They never came by to check if the food was ok. Overall service was terrible. Servers weren’t that happy to be there.

You’d think that customers doing their own menu/paying through the app would make the servers want to do more to accomodate. It’s as if we come in true restaurant to self serve. Never coming back.

Everything we have had has been flavoursome so far. We love the pork rib soup (you need at least 3 people to share that!) , the larb salad, pineapple rice, the pippis and the green curry have been all of a hit. They also have our favourtie wine Pepperjack Cab Sav on the menu which was a bonus! Lovely atmosphere and great customer service.

Cool restaurant, with a great range of Thai dishes and lots of seafood options. Really interesting variety of Thai-influenced cocktails and mocktails too. Good atmosphere and tasty food.

It was the only place available for a large booking, but I was pleasantly surprised! Great food, friendly staff, great ambience both upstairs and downstairs. Great feedback from the group, all said they’d come again! Only criticism from the group is the cocktails could be better

We found the service very slow and not once did we get asked if we wanted more drinks. I had to repeatedly ask. The food was OK but very salty. Would I go back? Probably not.

Food was great
Service was professional and prompt
Catered for a large group (16 people) - worked fine because individual ordering via app.
Only issue was the leaving the venue staff switched off lights as a heavy hint to leave at 10:30.

Delicious!!! More adventurous dishes that you’d see at a thai restaurant in Sydney or Bangkok (as well as the usual curries and pad thai fare).

Sporadic food delivery and missed dishes made it slightly disappointing.

Salads were limp and lacked punch.

Curry was excellent

Limited vegetarian options, the menu online for vegetarian & vegan was not available when we got there. Food was average. Thai green curry with tofu and veggies was too spicey that it gave me an upset stomach.

I have loved coming to this restaurant since it was FOMO Thai and it's still just as good, if not better. My friends and I will always come back. We love the ambience and the food is delicious. It is also a lot easier to order now with the QR codes on the tables, a feature I hope will stay.

Covid normal was repected as all ordering and payments were made on your mobile phone. The pre drinks took a long time to come out. The food also, but this is to be expected in a busy restaurant. The food was spectacular!
