    Fantastic experience at Tom Phat last night. Happy hour cocktails were excellent value; food was delicious, service faultless and the staff accommodated our multiple needs (GF, need to be out by a certain time to get to the theatre) seamlessly. I'll be back again and am recommending to all my friends.

    Deep fried squid came out looking like soggy fries (I really mean it!) and the pork belly wasn't crispy at all. The fat on top was rubbery. Honestly the food was not that great :(

    Staff were very very friendly and accommodating. We had the $45 per person ‘let us feed you’ meal. Good value for money. Low dimmed light. Cocktails were yummy. Only thing I would recommend to change is a lot of the food was sweet. If some of the elements had a more sour taste it would much better.

    Great local gem, dishes had great flavours, amazing value drinks, cocktails and feed me banquets! Music wasn't overly loud to be overbearing for conversations. Only disappointment was with the pork belly as it didn't have the crispy bit at all...just gelatinous fat... 😔

    Spur of the moment mum and dad date night, thought we’d hit an old favourite and as always, Tom Phat did not disappoint. We were greeted by the loveliest warm smile of the staff member which set the tone for the rest of the night - I wish I’d got her name so I could give her a special mention, but sadly i didn’t catch it! We opted for the feed us 6 course meal and it was a delicious selection that left our tummies happy and full. The Thai whiskey sour cocktail was great as an addition. Thanks so much folks - it’s marvellous that we’ve been coming here since it first opened and we continue to have the best meals and dining experiences.
