Fodor's Review

This busy Thai restaurant in the heart of Canberra draws its inspiration from the street-food stalls of Thailand. Waitstaff does an excellent job of suggesting just the right wines for your meal from an acclaimed, although small, wine list. The crispy-fish salad is a specialty, a mix of crisp fried-fish pieces with green mango, coriander, mint, roasted peanuts, and a chili dressing (have it with the Thirst Riesling). The main dish of green curry with ocean trout dumplings is not only intriguing but delicious. A tasting plate featuring such delights as corn fritters, Thai sausages, and popular Thai fish cakes is A$28.90 for two, while the "two-for-one" deals on Monday and Tuesday nights pulls in droves of locals—arrive early or expect a wait.
