Great food with very friendly staff. They check in at the right times for more drinks and when we were ready to order without "hassling" us like some places do.

They were clearly following COVID guide lines with sanitising down tables when people left and had an electronic sing in at the front. Tom Phat provided an environment where
I was actually able to forget for a while what is going on in the world which was great.

Tom Phat is a well known and exceptional restaurant. Good food, good portion sizes, not too expensive, and just a really nice place to sit and enjoy.

Enjoy our meal at Tom Phat. Super tasty mains, the Chilli caramel pork belly is always a winner and the Rendang Beef was melt in the mouth delicious. The Pad Thai was super tasty and a very generous serve.

the staff were outstanding and gave us great food and drink recommendations. The menu had many options to suit different dietary requirements without having a fifty foot long menu. The food was priced well for the generous portion sizes. Cocktails were delicious and complimented the food offerings well. Would happily come back again. A great option for a date.

Fabulous food. Have been many times over the years. Unfortunately the service was quite poor this time around. Possibly due to understaffing on the night. Still recommend though.

Good food but so loud you can’t hear the person next to you, and the service is very slow. We had to get up and find the waiter to order second round drinks.

generous tasty dishes reasonably priced. a pity they do not offer fresh juice. as the placed filled, the noise level made it increasingly difficult for comfortable conversation - we did not come for the music so please lower the volume!

I went to Tom Phat with high hopes as this restaurant is recommended on internet. However, the experience turned out not so good. My friends and I had to wait 45 minutes for food, as soon as I realised they’re quite busy I decided to pre ordered a pancake for dessert. They still took lots of time to get it delivered on my table after we finished our main dishes. There’s nothing I can complain about food but having to wait in long time killed my appetite unfortunately.

TERRIBLE service. Food was good but it killed our buzz after such awful service and a lack of remorse from the servers. Watched every other table get their food before us. Got roti, rice and appetiser with the rest an hour later so basically they messed up our order, forgot the food and when we questioned it twice then also complained at the end- no apology, just ‘we are busy’. Laughable.

The $60 weekend brunch deal with endless drinks was damn good! Lots of food with 5 dishes and 90 mins to get your drink on. Very cool

The perfect place to catch up with friends or dinner with your partner. The staff are friendly and not all all pushy, the ambience is nice and the food is tasty and reasonably priced. We shared the tofu curry and the chicken chili jam stir fry and both were delicious.
