We at a really good team lunch. Booking wa eay, service was prompt and food was delicious. Each of us had something different and we all thoroughly enjoyed the food. Breaking the bill and paying was also a breeze. Definitively a place I will return to.
Food & service was excellent & good value for the money. Staff were friendly & knowledgeable. Quite busy even on a week night, make sure to book a table if planning a visit on a Friday or Saturday evening. Definitely recommend a visit.
Wonderful pre-drinks at the Tuk Tuk bar followed by a banquet. We sat inside the front building which was nice and warm and the noise level was not too loud. Great price, great service, would recommend
Great Thai food with excellent bar and table service and awesome atmosphere...
Restaurant has a nice feel to it. Staff are friendly, helpful and plentiful. Seated straight away and order taken quickly. Staff helpful in confirming which meals were gluten free (lots of options available and menu is marked). When our drinks hadn't arrived while we were eating the entree we got a staff member's attention and they attended to it straight away (something had gone wrong with the original order). Wine by the glass was a decent quality. My husband had thai fish cakes for entree - tasty, plentiful with salad and dressing. I had chicken larb balls - tasty but dry and no sauce or accompaniment. My husband had a prawn curry for mains - plenty of large prawns and good quantity of sauce. I had seafood ginger stirfry - prawns, mussels and calamari with heaps of veges and mushrooms - tasty and plentiful. Both went well with the coconut rice. We finished our two course meal in an hour and the whole lot including a wine and beer was $73 using an Entertainment Book voucher. Very happy with food (apart from dry larb balls), drinks (once we got them) and service. Would definitely return and recommend the restaurant to others.
We dined on a Saturday evening and my first impression was the garden area was just beautiful. Highly recommend asking for an outdoor table (there are heaters when it gets a little chilly) as it's lush and very inviting. We started with the spicy temple wings with tamarind and chilli. These were beautifully cooked, chicken was lovely and juicy and the sauce was super flavourful and spicy! Generous portion and well priced. My husband was impressed with the range of beers available - the usual Thai suspects, but also some great local craft beers, too. For mains we chose a mussaman beef curry, kailan pork belly stirfry with steamed rice and roti. Everything was packed full of flavour and really delicious. The beef in the curry was lovely and tender, not too dry as they often are in mussaman curries. I loved everything, it was really delicious. Service was friendly and quick, and prices are very good. It's even greater value when using the Entertainment Card and we have already recommended Temple Thai to friends and family. Delicious, will definitely return again.
The food was lovely and delivered quickly to table. However, we were just a little disappointed at the table service with a couple of minor infractions impacting what would have otherwise been a perfect experience. At times we couldn’t see anyone despite it seeming to be quiet with only a couple of tables patronised. Then table was being cleared while some were still eating and our drinks glasses removed without checking if we wanted another (& we probably would have had another glass of wine as the Rose was quite nice). I initiated a discussion while the glasses were taken away but it was too late by then. However, with the food being served quickly, fresh, tasty and in generous portions, we’ll be back to try again crossing fingers the service will be just a little better next time.
Having returned the Temple Thai again after our first visit in Feb 2017, we have to say that it felt that a new Chef may have been employed by the restaurant, because, the food was ok "BUT" was nothing like our February experience. This time it lacked that real "Thai Flavour" and the punch that Thai Cuisine usually demonstrates. It was actually a little bland if I was to be totally honest. There was also no Whole Barramundi available which was a thorough disappointment to my wife, in being that was one of the main reasons we came this time, because she so enjoyed the Barra on our first visit in February. Most of the staff were very friendly but there was one that possibly could have smiled and been a little more accommodating to the Diners. Overall, the night was pleasant but the food flavours as stated before, really lacked in some areas and needs some serious looking at.
My extended family and I had lunch at Temple Thai. We were surprised how spacious the restaurant was and it was nicely decorated with a tropical feel at the back of the restaurant. The service was very good, the food came quickly. The waitresses were attentive and friendly. We ordered 10 different dishes, all were really well presented and delicious. The food portion was reasonable and price was comparable with other Thai restaurants. A great find. We will be back.
The atmosphere was really cool, service was great and the food was PHENOMENAL. I got the Suki stir fry, which has all kinds of seafood that are all cooked to perfection. Mixed with some noodles, greens and a lovely spice, it's probably one of my favorite dishes I've had in Brisbane! My wife got the Pad Se Ew and we shared some pork skewers, both of which were also fantastic. I couldn't recommend this place enough!
