    Staff weren’t very welcoming and table was very sticky and grimy. But the food itself was fresh and delicious. If they focused a bit more on the details this place would be great!

How to get to the restaurant

2 Darley Road, 2095, Manly (NSW), Australia

About the restaurant

Take a break from the daily grind

Manly, Manly, Manly. Sun, surf and this gorgeous and intimate Thai restaurant right on Darley Road. Words cannot describe how lovely the décor is at this little jewel, with big wooden slats lining the walls, greenery throughout and low level mood lighting. Reminiscent of warm romantic evening meals in Koh Samui, dining at Mortar & Pestle will have you on WebJet the minute you get home to book your next trip back to Thailand!

Mortar & Pestle serve all of the traditional dishes you would be familiar with - Pad Thai Hor Kai and Lemongrass Chicken - but they also offer some different and exciting dishes like Roasted Duck Fried Rice, Sriracha Duck and Gang Ga Ree Garlic (a yellow curry) so there is something for everybody. Food is prepared fresh which really shows in the steamed vegetable and soup dishes.

As well as being very reasonably priced the staff are efficient and friendly. This cosy restaurant has quickly become popular with locals either to dine in or to order a take away. If you have picked up a little honey down on the beach that day be sure to bring her up to Mortar & Pestle, take up one of the seats in their alfresco area and impress her with an intimate night out for two. Without breaking the bank!

Best dish: Hangover Noodles - the perfect cure to what ails you with hot and spicy rice noodles, chilli, sweet basil, Chinese broccoli and shallots.
