    Food was up to typical standard for Sydney suburban Thai. Spring rolls appeared to be house made which is good as a lot of Thai restaurants buy in. Only criticism is that servings were on the small side but prices were higher than average. We will stick with our current regular Thai restaurant I think.

    Great restaurant. We have been a couple of times and have always found it the same. Staff are friendly and helpful, food is excelent (BYO makes it very affordable) and you can actually hear other people at the table without having to shout ...pretty unusual these days. Thoroughly recommend it !

    The Zest Thai at Narrabeen is always clean & inviting, I especially love the personalised names on each table. The food is always delicious, fresh ingredients, sensible amounts & made on the premises. They cater perfectly for coeliacs like myself & my daughter with egg & peanut allergies. The staff are warm, helpful & take the time to get to know everyone that comes through their door. It is our families’ favourite restaurant on the Northern Beaches.

    For entree, try the San choy bow, it’s got a great kick to it, all the food is delicious and I love how they give you a complimentary ice cream scoop on a Chinese spoon… bite size dessert and it’s just enough

    Super busy night for the restaurant with both eat in and take away. Staff did a great job keeping up and always with a smile. Penang beef curry, crispy pork stir fry and salt and pepper squid I would order over and over. The icecream suprise at the end was perfect

    The Thai experience at Zest is just that: an experience. The decor is simple and uncluttered . The room is close but very quiet. The service is personable and perfect. The food however ties the whole scene together. Its Thai as youve never known. Tastes that are beautifully tied together in dishes that are delicate and but eventful. This is not your throw into a wok and scorch type of Thai. Its dishes that are crafted with flavour combination in mind. This was a benchmark for me.
