Thailicious on Melbourne’s Exhibition Street provides a space that’s casually cool, and is a lovely spot to enjoy some of Melbourne’s most authentic Thai dishes. A hangout for the local Thai expat community, Thailicious sticks to tradition while maintaining a modern, forward-thinking attitude, thereby offering a cuisine that appeals to both foodies and old-school diners alike.
An extensive menu awaits you at Thailicious, and includes such favourites as tom yum soup, duck red curry, and pad Thai, among many other old classics. The restaurant is known for serving traditional food, so you can expect to see plenty of menu items that you probably aren’t familiar with, perhaps like the twice cooked pork hock, a deep-fried whole marinated pork hock cooked in a five-spice sauce and served alongside two additional delicious sauces. We recommend the crispy banana prawns, the lemon-sauce steamed barramundi and the green papaya salad for an unforgettable Thai dinner. Book ahead when planning to dine at Thailicious on Exhibition Street in the heart of the CBD.
We went for team lunch for a group of 13. The food is so delicious and the ambience is cosy. Excellent customer service. lunch was served on time and we got back to our desk in one hour. Highly recommend for no time waster.
The food is so delicious and the staffs are so friendly and helpful. We did not have to wait long. The ambience is warm and cosy. Everywhere is clean. We will come again.
Menu had a lot of variety and food was cooked well. In particular, the pork hock was inventive and delicious. Service was great as well and we didnt have to wait to long for our food. Very kid-friendly venue.
Terrific, authentic Thai food and certainly recommended for this. It is not a 'flash' restaurant, but a good local Thai restaurant on the edge of town. We didn't linger long after eating though - lack of airconditioning on a very hot night didn't encourage us to do this! Remember it is BYO. While Thai beer is on tap, there is a very limited wine selection.
The food had bold flavours and definitely reminded of the food in Thailand. Authentic and extremely delicious food. I definitely would go back to Thailicious
Glass noodles were very salty. The prawns were pretty good though. The pork hock was not delicious as it was in the past. In general, the foods were ok not as good as the last time I came.
Food is delicious, recommend to try prawn cracker. Service is nice and fast. Value is reasonable with price. Pre-booking should be organized in advance because there quit small place
We found fantastic food and very attentive staff. My only comment would relate to the lack of a banquet option on the menu for groups otherwise an enjoyable evening.
Great food. We happened to be there when there was some entertainment with 2 singers, which was great, a good atmosphere. It was Reasonably priced too.
