About Thai Pothong- Newtown

You can’t miss Thai Pothong’s iconic flagship premises in the heart of busy Newtown, the formidable array of imported Thai statuary dominating the restaurant’s built-in giftshop catching the eye of passersby down King Street. Gift shop and renowned cuisine included, Thai Pothong has been offering Sydney diners a complete Thai experience since 1996 and, newly refurbished, can accommodate up to 350 diners, with 60 guests enjoying private dining across two function rooms that are ideal for your next celebration. Chief among the many reasons Thai Pothong is such a fixture is, of course, its selection of fantastic, fragrant Thai food served up for lunch and dinner seven days a week.

More about Thai Pothong- Newtown, Newtown

Thai Pothong has been going from strength to strength since the mid-90s, with two full restaurants gracing Sydney city (the other in Marrickville), an express takeaway stall keeping commuters stocked up with Thai soul food down at bustling Newtown station, and a gift shop housed in the Newtown restaurant along King Street. This is an award-winning Thai restaurant in Sydney, topping prize-lists four years in a row, and it’s the combination of smiling service, unbeatable Southeast Asian atmosphere, and superlative Thai food that keeps guests coming back for more.

Thai Pothong’s King Street outpost keeps regular lunch hours from noon to 3pm, serving a delicious selection of Thai cuisine to Newtown locals, but let’s take a look at the dinner menu – it’s at dusk where this jewel in the crown of Sydney Thai restaurants really shines. Betel leaf prawns a chef’s special entree, and an incredible example of the exoticism at work in Thai Pothong’s kitchen. An incredible array of mains are available here, with an enticing dish, again a chef’s special, being the banana blossom salad. Thai Pothong offers a great range of seafood and vegetarian options, curries and barbecued delicacies, salads and stir fries, but saves the best for their incredible lavish banqueting menus. Be sure to book in advance, especially at peak times – Thai Pothong is, by default, perennially popular.

Amazing food and service in this very lively restaurant. It serves a huge number of guests but the service is fast and very personal. A very well run restaurant which has been open for 22 years and is thriving.

Great service. Good food and very friendly and amenable staff who quickly changed a booking for a later time without hesitation. My only regret was not tipping

Top class service and fantastic meal. The staff made the experience extra memorable. Without a doubt, one of the best Thai restaurants. Highly recommended and well worth the travel
