Authentic Thai cuisine and a charming environment merge seamlessly at Blue River Thai, a Canterbury restaurant that’s known to turn first-timers into true believers (yes, it’s that good). This local haunt features a welcoming atmosphere that’s casual and clean, the perfect place to dive into a creamy coconut curry or a big plate of Thai fried rice. Led by experienced chef George Jantavongso, the kitchen crew at this popular Melbourne restaurant doesn’t take any shortcuts when it comes to the perfect flavour. Popular dishes at Blue River Thai include the goong bbq (grilled marinated prawns with Thai herbs and spices), the classic pad Thai, the crying tiger and the Blue River Garden, a medley of fresh vegetables with fried tofu and satay sauce.

Good value considering location. Service was prompt and the meals were authentic and tasty. Will visit the restaurant again if I am in the area.
Once again Blue River was delightful. Tried one of the chefs specials - lamb curry and it was excellent. Always enjoyable and good is always great.
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.
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.
This is our local Thai - but I'd happily travel for it. Fast service by extremely polite staff. Menu has plenty of variety with delicate and delightful flavours . The spicy options are there too if you want them. Decor is simply - and that's fine, it stands on all its other strengths. I'll keep going back.
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 !!
