    arrived at approx.725pm on 12/03 /2021.was asked to sit at table inside.I mentioned we had a table booked outside.On observation there were 2 tables empty however needed to be cleaned and set.The lady was rude to us by saying " o for heaven sake".We then found out this was the manager speaking with us.When finally seated at table entree x2 were ordered .My soup came first then we noticed an entree been delivered to another table after approx.10 min.We then observed the entree removed from the other customer and given to us.Customer at table next to us mentioned that same entree had been given to another table prior.I said to the waitress that due to covid we would like the entree replaced.Comment was entree is still hot .I then said cancel the entree please.Main meal delivered to us at approx.815pm.Beers x 2 and a white wine were delivered to us and i said we did not order them and they were removed from our table.When we asked for water we were given a large plastic bottle with coca cola on bottle.Then asked for the account and the amount i needed to pay was incorrect.They had left the returned entree on there and also the beeresx2 and the white wine.I then requested a new account.We will never return to that place and will share our bad expeience.

    Despite being quite busy the staff were very prompt and friendly. There was minimal wait for entree and main. Highly recommended and would definitely visit again.

    Have dined there previously and remembered it being a little gem. Is a family business, which I like to give my custom to. My hubby and I had been to a fringe show and wanted a nice comfortable place to sit quietly. Totally enjoyed

    I don't know something has changed at this restaurant. It used to be a nice, friendly place with excellent food. Now it is not so friendly and the food and service quality have really gone down. Very disappointed, i must have visited this place at least 15 times in the last 3 years and I brought in so many friends and family members here and hosted many parties and used to tell everyone that it is my favourite Thai restaurant. Feel very sad to see such deterioration, hope they bounce back to their old standards.

    Great little place around for many years. The food was tasty and the servings were very generous. The Tom Kai Gai soup was like a meal in itself. Would definitely go back again

    Food was good as usual but Service was really disappointing, Ordered three items and got four. Asked for Green curry with rice and the Lady brought Stir Fried Rice which We haven’t ordered. The worst thing that the the lady was blaming us for this mistake. Have been here few times but wasn’t expecting this disappointing experience.

    Very disappointed. Requested an outside table on booking, which was confirmed. On arrival table was inside and only set for 10, not 12. Took several requests to get extra chair, and then several more to get setting. That person was practically sitting on the lap of an elderly gent at the next table as there was not enough room for the table. Waitress did not know what basic things like Bundaberg and raspberry (not together!) were - had to point to menu. Majority of us ordered banquet - spring rolls, satay and pad Thai amazing but beef with basil was tough and we did not receive one dish. When we raised this we were told they would cook it (well after other dishes were well and truly finished). We asked for another alternative as we had a show to go to. They grudgingly offered $1 off each persons meal or dessert - for 3 of the 7 banquet eaters!!!!!!! Admittedly it is a very busy time of year (Fringe) but this was a special get together and it was not a good experience.

    The place was packed, the Adelaide Fringe was on, considering it was so busy the service was still very good. Our entree was Pan Dan Chicken which was disappointing, over cooked and a bit dry but my main which was Pad Thai Chicken was delicious , would definitely go again

    We are business associates who try to catch up once a month for lunch. We use the Fork site to choose and usually look for those places offering a discount. We always look for places that allow us to take our own wine. Today's lunch was a great success because the waiting staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. The food was excellent. Five mains and a large special fried rice, all shared and not one dish was a let down. Well done to all concerned.

    The most unusual interpretation of Pad Thai I've ever had! Maybe an off night? Service was quite rushed and pushy even though not busy. Unlikely to visit again but the chicken satays were nice.

    A great vibrant Thai/ Cafe Michael 2 restaurant serving delicious dishes. Efficient friendly service and suitable for large parties. The lemongrass chicken and the garlic and pepper squid were outstanding. We all loved the tropical mocktail. Of course, we must order the deep fried cheese cake spring rolls and homemade Chocolate Brownies even though we were so full.
