Jasmine Rice Thai Restaurant Wollongong Reviews
A little slice of Thailand in the Illawarra Oct 06, 2011
Jasmine Rice has two restaurants, both in the city of Wollongong - one in Corrimal St near the beach, and the other in Flinders St heading towards Fairy Meadow.
Note: I am reviewing the one on Flinders St.
The restaurant is quite big, with both indoor and outdoor seating, and with a street view. The ambiance and decor is Thai styled and very intimate. Artifacts on the walls were traditionally Thai, and looked like they had been imported from Thailand.
Service is warm and friendly, and most of the waiters and waitresses are Thai themselves, yet speak excellent English of course. Staff are beautifully presented and wear traditional Thai dress.
Menu is traditional Thai food, as well as a variety of curries - there are also a few unusual Thai dishes which are worth a try. My table decided to share our meals, and I was impressed with all - strong flavours, fresh ingredients, and not as spicy as Thai food made in Thailand. The food is prepared quite quickly, and presented well. Prices are quite cheap, between $15 and $25 for a main meal, which is very good when comparing to other restaurants in the area. The restaurant is licensed, but you can also BYO.
You do need to book in advance, even for a week night, as it is very popular. Despite being busy, they are well organised and never disappoint.
