    Extremely impressed with Jumbo Thai Restaurant. The restaurant was quite honestly one of the best I've been to in many a year, the staff were absolutely amazing, only matched by the magnificent food. We were only in Brissie a few days, but this was most definitely a highlight!!! A+

    We booked Jumbo Thai for a work dinner and ordered the Banquet 2. The food that arrived was delicious and plenty of it for the 5 diners. However there was a dish on the menu that didn't arrive, nor did the sorbet dessert, even though they brought the dishes and cutlery, 30 mins later still no sorbet. This didn't detract from our dining experience too much, and it is obviously a very popular spot, even for a Tuesday night it was full to bursting.

    Food was excellent, great flavours. Hostess very pleasant and efficient. I think the wines are a little overpriced. My pina colada was a little underdone. Definitely a great experience and will return.

    Well considering the restaurant is called Jumbo Thai, the portions were far from Jumbo. 3 tiny duck spring rolls (finger size, not full length) were $12. $30+ Mains completely comparible in taste to the $18 mains from the local Thai on the corner. Staff reasonable attendance, noise pretty loud, echoing in the high roof. Won't be going again. Much better value and quality elsewhere. $190 for three people, 1 drink each.

    Food was food, service as well but, even that the restaurant accepted our réservation at 8pm, we were asked to speed up with our dinner. We were asked to order coffee during our main dish because kitchen will be closed. It was 9:30pm …!

    Though Jumbo Thai has changed ownership over the past few months, the restaurant has maintained its "very-high-standards", and remains one of the best "up-market" Thai restaurants in Brisbane. The quality of food is equivalent to many 5-Star Thai restaurants in Thailand (a country my wife & I have visited more than fifty times since 1991).

    My colleagues and I used to go to Jumbo 2-3 times a month for the banquet. This time we were told it was minimum 4 people so we couldn't have it. We then ordered 3 spring rolls ($12), 1 dim sim ($7) and 2 Pork Bao ($16). All were normal size and the dim sim was done in 2 bites - the "salmon roe" consisted of 2 tiny pearls. The food was nice, but SO overpriced. The spring rolls were just the same as you get from the frozen food section of Woolies! Mains were the same deal. Beef Cheek Massaman (no rice) was $36 and had 5 chunks of beef in it. The vegetable fried rice was $18 and was bland. Such a shame - used to be great but we were told there was new management. It showed too - the place used to be pumping but on Friday it was only half full. Won't be going back.
