Food is bland

We have ordered from this place twice now... however we are now choosing to order from elseware and 'veganise' the food as the dishes were universally bland (I mean low overall taste, not low spiciness). Even my partner who normally likes a 'subtler' taste than I finds the dishes wanting. I have eaten vegan Thai food before and know it doesn't need to be like this.

Pros: Clearly vegan, Open wider times than most, Good options

Cons: Bland food

My Favourite

Thai food is my favourite and this place is minutes up the road for me but I always come back because the food is amazing. I could live on the other side of town and I'd still come back. Love these guys, they're always so friendly there too!

Yummy Satay Noodles

Came back for a second time after a not-so great first experience, and honestly much better this time. The flavours are really nice, and the veggies are super fresh. Would definitely recommend the satay noodles with tofu.

So surprise by your experience, I went there tonight and the flavours were incredible. Better than any Thai food I had in Thailand. I hope you go back to give it another try. It was outstanding to me and my partner

Thanks for the reply. I will give it another shot. Do you recommend anything in particular?

If you like satay I would highly recommend the satay noodles. I’m not usually a satay person, I find it too sickly, but it was fresh and didn’t had a lovely charred flavour as apposed to frying pan flavour that all other fried Thai dishes have that I’ve tried else where. I had the red curry which was huge and delicious. Lots of Thai basil in it which was beautiful x

best to book before you go as this place is popular on the weekends and is a pretty small venue.
we had the chicken drumsticks, dim sims, pad see ew and honey chicken. all of the food was really impressive and tasty, especially the drumsticks - the texture was really close to chicken!

edit to add - we got takeaway and the servings were SO generous, price was very reasonable and the food was amazing. will be a regular for us now.

Absolutely AMAZING!

Authentic Thai food, the flavour were the best I’ve ever had, better than any food I’ve had in Thailand too! The staff are so friendly and accommodating. We had spring rolls to start, full of beautiful filling. I had the veggie red curry and my partner had fried satay tofu noodles. The curry was so fragrant and beautifully balanced. I normally don’t rate fried dishes much as they always just taste of ‘fried oil’ and not much else, but I was blown away by the flavour of the satay noodles, it had a beautiful hint of charred rather than fried, not greasy or slimy at all, just beautifully fresh and flavourful, and the satay was really subtle and light, nothing like I’ve had before, satay is normally super heavy and rich and just tastes of sickly peanuts but this was incredible. Also portion sizes were huge, could easily share one dish between two. 100 stars. You MUST try this place. So grateful I found it on this app 🙏🏽

Pros: All vegan , Incredible flavours, huge portion sizes, Friendly customer service

The only plus side to my flight being cancelled was finding this hidden gem near the Brisbane airport!
When my flight was cancelled and I booked the next for 5 hours later, I caught an Uber to get a late lunch at this fantastic place, easy to get an Uber in and out of, food easy to order and absolutely delicious! Definitely a must try!

Has been a favourite for many years!

Will continue to travel far and wide to return to this restaurant. The stir fry’s, curries and satay sticks are always a fave. Reasonable price and friendly (quiet) atmosphere too!

Great Thai food

Nice and fresh Thai food. Outdoor and indoor seating available. All vegan with lovely staff. Offers different levels of spice. Dim sims are hard to go past. Lovely rich creamy curries. The tofu salad packs a spicy punch even as mild.

Best Thai and vegan chicken

The food here is so authentic! My sister in law is Thai and the food here is as good, if not better than her Thai cooking. Especially love the green papaya salad…and the PFC. Satisfies the craving for fried chick’n. It’s the best I have tasted. Also portions are really big so go really hungry!

Lovely little place!

This is a lovely little place that allows BYO and the choice to sit outside or in. A great variety of dishes to choose from and not badly priced. The food we ate was tasty and the atmosphere was nice. A great place to try!

Excellent Vegan Thai

Absolutely recommend U-Tong Thai Vegan food for excellence in innovation and delicious vegan faux-meat meals. For entrees I recommend the fresh spring rolls made with green salad vegetables, mint and fresh herbs, and the fabulously tasty 'chicken' on skewers with peanut sauce. Amazing main meals are the coconut 'seafood' curry served in a whole coconut and the chilli 'fish'. The delicious fried rice was served in half a pineapple! Also, there is a brown rice option😄The staff are warm and friendly and the service is great. You will not be disappointed!
Thank you U-Tong!

Range of protein choices

The appetisers were really good. I was a little disappointed with their pad thai, hence only 4 stars. My partner had the ginger veggie stir fry with duck and thought it was really nice.

Staff were friendly

Pros: All vegan place , Mock duck, mock fish

Little vegan Thai place with no onion or garlic (good for people if they’re trying to eat low FODMAP). We had spring rolls and curry puffs for starters which were really good. For mains we had red curry with vegetables and satay noodles with vegetables. They were both nice but I preferred the red curry

Awesome taste and range

Table of four and we had 5 entrees and 5 mains to share. Couldn’t fault any. Lots of plant based meats and while some was deep fried it wasn’t heavy and oozing oil. Maybe lacking the flavour nuances of good traditional Thai cooking but this was good honest Aussie Thai

Pros: Everything vegan , Not loaded with palm sugar , Good value

Cons: Not licenced

Very reasonably priced southeast Asian food. Large selection of curries, stirfrys and noodle dishes. I would highly recommend any of the curries, packed with flavour. Nice variety of homemade drinks too!

Their lunch specials are an absolute bargain!
