Lovely food, esp Barramundi ! Always first stop for friends from the US. Friendly service and atmosphere but food is first class. We would highly recommend.
Food was great, tasty & plentiful. Easy enough to get to with parking options nearby. Very enjoyable.
Great food , awesome service food was absolutely delicious and tender. This restaurant continues to impress every time we come here . Repeat visit is a must
Excellent friendly service. Excellent meal . We always enjoy dining at Blue Rivet Thai. They also have a first rate take away facility as well.
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.
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 !!
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.
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.
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 !!
