That Thai has made a name for itself since throwing open its doors in 2005, quickly becoming a default destination – that Thai restaurant – for lovers of Southeast Asian in Ascot and Brisbane in general. Not only is every dish created from scratch in the expertly crewed kitchen – and this homemade ethos goes right down to the delicious sauces – but the level of hospitality is peerless. That Thai is truly a restaurant that welcomes diners to ‘The Land of Smiles’ from the moment you step through the door to the time you leave. Attentive but unobtrusive service aside, the key is in the kitchen, helmed by a chef with over a quarter-century of experience, including ten years working in top-flight Bangkok hotels like the Sofitel Central.
As voted by Southeast Asian food fans from across Brisbane, That Thai’s most popular dishes are the banana leaf chicken, cooked with dry red curry paste, Thai herbs and lime leaves and garnished with crispy basil and a cucumber sauce, the That Thai signature spicy salad tossing prawns, minced chicken, glass noodles cashews, coriander and onion in a chilli, lemon juice and fish sauce dressing, and the That Thai prawns sizzled in a wok with fresh and crispy herbs and a special chili paste. However, the menu at this Ascot Thai restaurant down Racecourse Road features a number of other specialties that come highly recommended. Try the boneless Thai duckling marinated in the chef’s secret sauce, deep-fried and served golden brown with a sweet plum sauce, or the peanut sauce and cashew nut-topped pra ram long song, pieces of chicken breast marinated in curry powder and soy sauce before being quickly stir-fried. Bookings are essential!
Best Thai food I've ever had. Excellent service and we travel 3/4 of an hour to get there. Excellent dining experience with every dish excellent quality
Best Thai in Brisbane! Fantastic service, friendly and efficient! Reasonably priced! Food is delicious, fresh and generous servings. Lovely atmosphere and easy to get to!
Near perfect! Excellent dishes, fast service with a smile on a busy night, great atmosphere and very reasonable prices too. Highly recommended! We will be back again...:)
Wonderful environment, polite and fast service, and fantastic food. They accommodated our large table and made sure we had everything we needed. I could not recommend this place more.
We have eaten at That Thai many times and the food is always amazing. We love the Curry Puffs, Golden Bags and there Chicken Cashew Stirfry is to die for. Would definitely recommend for a great night out for 2 or 22 people.
It has been about 5 years inbetween visits to That Thai due to moving interstate. It was just how we remembered it to be. Never ever disappointed. Food amazing, staff friendly and efficient and fast service, well priced. Highly recommend. Thank you.
Food very good and service excellent despite full house. Well done That Thai Parking limited unless you park next door which we assumed would be ok. Maybe a formal deal could be done with them for parking after say 6 pm.
Ambience is a little off due to small restaurant, many diners - so loud and busy. That said, we ate early, so likely reflected those with younger families - which included us. Not the best Thai I've ever eaten, but passable. Huge menu choice, and reasonably quick to the table once we actually attracted someone to take our order! Another family who arrived after us was attended to before us - staff need to pay more attention. Service was stretched throughout our meal but perfunctorily pleasant.
We had a great night with family. The food was just beautiful and staff very attentive. Will certainly recommend to friends and we look forward to our next night out at That Thai
We have been going to That Thai for years. Yummy food, especially the Prawn Surperb. Quick service, good atmosphere and just been newly renovated. 😀😀
The happy patrons were a bit noisy but I loved the service and the food - great value. The Pocketwatch wine also was great. I will return again and again. John from Ascot
We were seated quickly and offered drinks immediately. There was a great selection of food that was delivered to the table promptly. It was all lovely and fresh, we will be back.
The restaurant is in a Great location, and has an excellent menu with the House specialities being the highlight. The staff are very friendly as well. A great experience
Excellant food, certainly lots of flavour. The service was faultless, very prompt in betting all meals and drinks to the table. Will definitely be going back.
We have eaten here a number of times (and tried to a few other times so we now know to book) and the meals and service have always been great.
As always at this restaurant excellent menu and great service. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. excellent attention to detail every visit. A must visit in Brisbane.
Great customer service. Food was delicious and brought out promptly. Water was refilled when glasses were seen to be empty. Spacious and beautifully designed restaurant.
Beautiful food....first time to this restaurants as I went off other reviews definitely didn't disappoint. Will be making this a regular. Highly recommend, very fresh.
Quick and friendly service, catered for our group of 10 with no difficulty Prices are great value and visiting guests raved about the meals. Look forward to next time
Staff could not understand english at all. very hard to order drinks and food. Food was alright. Rice portions were small. overall price was expensive for the amount of food. Drink size very small for price of drinks.
Busy restaurant with good food but the service to order is slow and catching a second drink a bit of a struggle. Positively the food arrived very quickly.
My wife's meal rated as medium medium. It was defiantly hotter than mine which was rated as hot. Enjoyed mine and a portion of my wife's.
