    Food is amazing as always, service was very poor. We had one round of drinks and that was it, even after we repetedly asked for more. Cannot go hear any more due to such bad service which is a shame.

    The food was of a high standard in terms of flavours, temperature, & freshness. We enjoyed sharing our meals together. There was also attention to detail with small things like coriander & caviar added. We really appreciated the thoughtfulness in each dish.

    Always good. I live nearby and love cruising down here for some food and some drinks. Usually with a couple mates and have a really nice chill catch up. There is some super nice food, and the staff are cool as. Would recommend this place for sure.

    Som Tam Gai, is one of the hidden gems of the Gold Coast. I am a regular diner at this local restaurant and highly recommend for more locals and also other people of the gold coast to come and enjoy the outstanding flavours and experience at this restaurant.

    Food was unbelievable!! Service was great, all the staff were so lovely! Such a quaint little restaurant but we had such a great night! The only downfall was that a man who seemed to be the owner came in late in our meal and hung around the entrance to the kitchen. He seemed quite rude to the staff and was clapping at them to work harder, and making wierd comments to them. He was serving him self wine and hanging around the bar. He looked a bit unkept. He tainted the vine. But other than that we couldnt fault it and we will certainly be back!!

    Amazing food with a depth of flavor rarely seen on the GC. Everyone I have introduced to this restaurant has been blown away by each & every dish. Service this time around was very warm & inviting with Jake. Thanks to the whole team for another awesome dining experience.

    The restaurant is closed all over Christmas so we were unable to eat there, so many people were turning up with a booking made on line like us - to find the restaurant shut for a week. We should never have been allowed to make a reservation!

    I am a fan of Green Thai curry. Som Tam Gai’s offering was the best I have ever had. A thunder storm came over, we were alfresco, the staff had us inside in two minutes continuing a lovely meal.

    Food is really good but service needs some work. Have come to dine here twice now and both times the waitress has forgotten our drinks and we have had to remind her for them and so we only received our drinks towards the end of the meal and if we had received them earlier we may have ordered another round. Very yummy flavours but found some of the meat quite fatty. Worth a visit though!
