Best Thai in bris.

The pork belly curry is AMAZING!!! (Dry spice rubbed pork belly of something)

Oysters were perfection too!

Have eaten at Jumbo previously, food was again very good, we like hot food but the sand crab yellow curry was very hot on this occasion, and the service on the slow side, but we still had a lovely dinner

The signature pea dumplings are amazing, the modernised takes of classic dishes perfectly balanced and the vegan alternatives as good as if not better than the original plates. A must for vegans and those that appreciate a true craftsperson in the kitchen.

Food was brilliant. Ambiance great, just noisy enough avoid an awkward silence but not loud enough to ruin the conversation. Very good spot. It's on my favourite places to eat in Brisbane now

As a resident in the Brisbane CBD we are often looking for great food and great service and value.

Jumbo Thai has met every expectation. We eat at many restaurants and 90% of the restaurants are excellent. But we are finding hard to improve on the food at Jumbo Thai.

Food was very tasty and well presented. Service was however lack of attentive. It was hard to get staffs attention despite it was on a quiet day ( Monday ).There are 3 items we wanted for entree and dessert was sold out which is understandable but it would be less disappointed if the staff let us know what they have sold out before we already to avoid disappointment twice.
Overall it was good experience just service was a bit let down.

It took some time for our presence to be rewarded by a look at the menu but once that had happened, it was all good. Food great and we could not finish it. When requesting sparkling water we were presented with an already half-finished bottle although we subsequently received a full one. Not a good look. Otherwise a great evening

Food was a bit of a disappointment as it appeared pre-prepared and heated. Didn’t come out as fresh as the menu read

The food was delicious, everything was faultless. Lovely surrounds as well, you definitely feel like you are having a special dinner visiting Jumbo Thai. When it filled up it got a bit noisy but it was actually nice to see the restaurant full and buzzing. Will be back !

Best Thai food in Brisbane CBD

Four of us came here to celebrate a 50th birthday, and we were not disappointed.

Even though the prices appeared a bit high, it was so worth it as the food, presentation, and service was fabulous.

We will definitely be back.

A different perspective on thai cuisine. The ambiance was excellent, warm and inviting. The food was absolutely amazing. The dumplings were a surprising burst of flavor. The food was of exceptional quality and a must try. Definitely our new favorite Thai restaurant!!

Great food, excellent location, good value. We had the banquet and they accommodated half of us being vegetarian. The only negative was the service at times - twice they forgot our drinks order and didn’t start making our drinks until I reminded them.

Dined here for lunch again recently -Jumbo Thai has a beautiful, relaxed ambience with a wide variety of seating/table arrangements.
The food is delicious and there are some reasonably priced wines.
What is outstanding is the service, from the moment you are greeted, the wonderful open kitchen you see as you enter the restaurant and the continuing excellent table service.
Thank you to all who n=made this again, another great dining experience.
