The food at Jumbo Thai was purely exquisite! For an entree, we tried the butterfly pea dumplings, the herbacious oysters which were both packed with so much flavour and beautifully presented. The only thing that I wish was to get more dumplings as they were priced per piece! For mains, we ordered the sand crab yellow curry which was the perfect balance of flavour and spice - the sand crab was to die for and they were definitely generous with the meat! We also ordered the massaman lamb shank curry which melted in my mouth from the tenderness. It had a beautiful hint of cinnamon which made this massaman curry one of the best I've had! Lastly, for dessert we ordered the sago pudding with sweet corn and coconut ice cream - another delightful treat and finished the meal perfectly! I will definitely be going back here again - there's so much to try!

The food is authentic Thai, not the usual carrot and capsicum based food you get served at lesser establishments. Highly recommended.

Amazing starters. Interesting cocktails.
Mains were average. Thai fried rice prawn was just plain white rice - no flavour or seasoning which was the most disappointing dish. Plenty of prawns but no other flavour.
We were a table of five but had to share menus as waitress couldn’t find anymore.......
We’d go back for sampling of other starters on offer. Hopefully their curries were a better option for main.

Excellent food, great service. Staff were very friendly. An excellent venue for lunch.
We had the weekday lunch special. It was great value.
The cocktails were creative and original.
The only small complaint would be the size of the plates provided. They were too small for the food provided.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

We had a great experience at the Jumbo Thai. The staff were warm and friendly with a good ambience and nice music playing in the background

The food came in generous portions for the mains a d was very well presented. The taste was mouth watering and incredibly tasty. As a high end restaurant the food was also reasonably priced. I would definitely visit again and highly recommend this restaurant.

Visiting from interstate and felt like thai food. Not disappointed. Very authentic and fresh. Donna, our waitress was very professional, friendly and knew all about the dishes on the menu. My only critism is that the lady who was working the front counter needs to smile when customers arrive.
