    Everything was great except they didn't say on the menu that the vegetarian codfish salad I ordered had chilli in it. This made it really difficult to eat! What I could taste was delicious though and they didn't skimp on the 'cod'! Kudos for being the only menulog wait shorter than an hour too (although to be fair it was my first pick up). Was ready in 10ish minutes as promised.

      I ordered the herbal pork knuckle last night and it was a disaster. The meat was stone hard and cold. On the plus side, when I asked to have the dish replaced, I was received with excellent and prompt service by the waiting staff. Unfortunately, the replacement pork was just as disappointing. In short - the curries and seafood are far better than the meat only dishes.

      Love the atmosphere, service and was very impressed with the food on the first visit a few weeks ago. This time round, the food wasn’t as consistent. It would be much better if Pothong use fresh produce such as chicken (in the green curry chicken) and fish (chilli fish with Basel leaves) instead of the pre-packed frozen fillets. Overall, it’s still a good experience.

    • Overall 9.8 |  Food 10  |  Ambience 9  |  Value 10  |  Service 10

      FANTASTIC!!! I've been here a few times now but this was the first time i've been with my 6month old daughter. The staff were so friendly and even tied a balloon to her pram for her to play with. She had a ball and the staff made us feel very welcome. Definately a family friendly venue! P.S the vego Penang Pak (curry) is to die for!!

    • Overall 8.8 |  Food 7  |  Ambience 10  |  Value 8  |  Service 10

      We found the food average, the decor and service however were excellent. We booked for Sat lunchtime, and it was really quiet then - which was great. Their cocktails are great too - a must try!! Parking was no problem either.

    • Overall 8.5 |  Food 8  |  Ambience 8  |  Value 8  |  Service 10

      Fantastic dining experience, will definitely be back!!

      I booked this restaurant as I have coeliac disease and I know that Thai Pothong has a 'gluten free' menu. I booked through menulog and advised that I would need the g/f menu. However when I arrived I was told that the g/f menu was only for dinner and most of it unavailable for lunch. This was not advised to me when the booking was made. So I ordered from the limited choices available. The food was great. Service was poor. The restaurant wasn't at all busy (Only about 5 tables), but we had to ask someone to come over every time - to take orders, to replenish water etc and for the bill. WE did have a child with us and they gave him a balloon which was a nice touch.

      Servie was great, I had a wonderful evening as food was deliious

    • Overall 7.5 |  Food 8  |  Ambience 7  |  Value 7  |  Service 8

      We had a banquet so the service was efficient and well paced. A little more thought could have gone into the dessert (a few slivers of fruit per person) and the $2.70/person corkage was way over the top.

      Great food and service. Quite noisy the night we were there, but the food was fabulous.

    • Overall 8 |  Food 8  |  Ambience 5  |  Value 9  |  Service 10

      Rates well above average overall. Highest rating for service - fast, unfussed , professional and friendly. Lower rating for ambience during busy periods as the noise and bustle can be uncomfortable.

      I've been to Thai Potong so many times before. The service still excellent, however the food quality was less than before. The ambience was alright, probably on their peak hour, i found it so noisy. The overal rate will be 6.5 out of 10
