No options available

I’m sure it has good food for those who eat meat, as the restaurant is regularly busy. But the waitstaff will assure you that this place does not serve anything vegan.

Cons: No options, shouldn’t be listed here

Possibly the worst place I have ever eaten at.

The worst service. People came in after us, ate, and left and we still hadnt received our meals. When we did, well, what can I say. Our table was 12 people, and everyone hated their meal bar one. The sizzling plates were warm, the rice was cold, the satay entree was warm and pre-made hours earlier. The meat in my meal was revolting. It was tasteless. Very bad service. Infact it was hard to find any good eating place in Mackay full stop.I know I will never go back to Mackay.

Pros: lovely atmosphere., staff were friendly., Leaving.

Cons: service., the food., the food.

Delicious vegan options

Delicious food, vegan options, the waiter was very knowledgable and talked to the Chef to make sure there is no fishsauce in the dish. Fried vegetables with cashews and tofu were amazing! I would give 5 Stars if I could!

Pros: Knowledgable staff, Friendly

No vegan options??

I asked staff what vegan options they had for dinner, and the response was none??? Due to fish sauce and shrimp paste.

I'm sure I could of found something, but felt it was better just to find somewhere else. 😬

Pros: Honest staff

Cons: No vegan options???

Authentic Thai with vegan options

Happy to find vegan options in Mackay - particularly fresh and fragrant traditional Thai dishes. Ordered the Mushroom Coconut Milk Soup and Deep Fried Tofu with chilli sauce (checked with the wait staff that there was no fish sauce or other animal ingredients in either - received very knowledgeable and friendly response from staff), We were also able to order a bottle of vegan-friendly wine from their wine list for the table. Food was served quickly and was fresh and fragrant.

Pros: Fresh, fragrant, traditional Thai food, A number of vegan options

Cons: Atmosphere is a little lacking
