Always a pleasure to eat here and wonderful food. Often have visitors from the US and a night at Blue River Thai is always called fopr. Highly recommend the 3 taste Barramundi !!
We have lived in this area for a long time and have never been here. It was a very pleasurable experience. The food and service was excellent and the atmosphere was very pleasant. We will definitely come back again in the future.
fast service, good &tasty fresh food. friendly staff. we enjoyed our group booking and meals and will come again for future dinners - recommend this to other people
The food was delicious, excellent in fact ...pleasant surroundings, excellent service but also fast, reasonably priced. highly recommend. parking was a bit of an issue.
Restaurants looks nice, well pointed, nice white tablecloths. Attentive waitresses. Food was very nice tom yum soup very tasty but mild for me, good chicken satay and veg spring rolls. Wassermann beef curry was nice but a little sweet - not sure what the spice was - cinnamon? Chicken pad thai nice, stir fry veg with tofu nice as well. Thai salad nice. Satay sauce was nice but a little bland - needed a little spice. Overall the food was very nice but perhaps toned down for the clientele.
Delicious food, served promptly. Servings are generous! This is a regular for us! Loved the crispy pork belly in a stir fry, rather than the usual beef or chicken. It tasted delicious and remained crispy.
Always a delightful meal. We especially like the Barramundi and bring US visitors there for the experience whenever they are in town. They say it is the best they have eaten anywhere !!
First time diners at this restaurant. Pleasantly surprised. Great food . . . tom yum was delicious as was the Thai fish cakes, and lamb curry. Will be back soon.
Food was very good and quite extensive menu to choose from. All food came out as ordered and hot. Service was very good and attentive. Will def. go back again.
Excellent, authentic Thai food and good service; the grilled prawns were cooked to perfection and the red curry chicken was spot on. We will be back again soon.
Late minute booking but turned out to be a good choice for us. We enjoyed the food and it was good serving. Reasonable price too. Will go again.
Amazing Thai food and great value, definitely a hidden gem in Melbourne. Also one of the best pad thai I have ever eaten!!
Food and service excellent, decor nice but air conditioner a bit cool and would like the option of chopsticks. We would go back again and take friends.
We went there for a family birthday celebration. Great range of food that all family members enjoyed along with helpful staff that were happy to help..
Excellent food, very good service and most comfortable setting. This was our first visit and we will most definitely be back. A delightful experience - thanks!
