First time experience dining, and it definitely did not disappoint. There were 4 of us and we opted for the Feed me menu and for $51pp it was good value for money! You get 3 entrees & 3 mains (chosen by the restaurant) and you can add an extra $5pp and get dessert but we were all so full! It was a little hard to understand some of the staff but was still great service! Everything was so good - So good I completely forgot to get photos of the entrees and the mains were already getting demolished when I got my photo šŸ˜‚ Favourite Entree; Fries chicken wings & salt & pepper squid Favourite Main; Lamb shank & Pork Pad See Ew and the coconut milk rice side. Drink of the night; Jedi Master

LadyBoy Dining and Bar serves up some of the best Thai in town. The venue itself is fun and colourful and the menu is a creative and modern take on traditional favourites. The 'Feed Me' set menu more than achieves what it promises to, and we were very satisfied by the end of our meal. We enjoyed a selection of entrees, such as stir fried cauliflower and eggplant, fried chicken, and salt and pepper calamari, all of which came in its own delicious sauce. Mains consisted of a pork belly Pad See Ew and braised lamb shank, which was by far the stand out dish of the evening. Dessert would have only cost us $5 extra per person, but we were too stuffed to fit more in!

ORDERED: šŸ¦‘ Salt & pepper squid: with fresh herbs, chilli, sweet soy & ginger ($16.00) šŸ‘ BBQ lamb ribs: with red curry glaze ($19.00) šŸŸ Thai Ceviche - salmon: with roe, crispy seaweed cracker, green namjin, coconut foam ($21.00) šŸœ Authentic old school Pad Thai: rice noodles, free range egg, Chinese chives, tofu, beanshoots and cashews (spicy) ($20.00) + šŸ” chicken ($4.00) šŸ— Slow braised Lamb Shank Massaman: with potato and cashews ($33.00) šŸ„£ Yellow curry of chicken & potato: with shaved coconut ($26.00) šŸš Coconut rice ($4.00) šŸ„­ Mango sticky rice: coconut cream, mango pearls, crumble ($17.00) It was $55.83pp between three people! REVIEW: šŸ“ā™„ Top 3 favourites from LadyBoy Dining & Bar were the BBQ lamb ribs, the yellow curry of chicken & potato and the coconut rice!! We loved how tender the lamb ribs were, full of flavour and easily slipped off the bone. šŸ” Although the chicken wasn't in an appetising form (lumps and bumps of chicken), the yellow chicken is flavourful with its refreshing coconut taste. šŸ„„ Speaking of coconut, I LOVE When the coconut rice actually has shreds of coconut in it! It's fragrant, lightly sweet, and an absolute dream. āž– Least favourite was the lamb shank massaman. More of a personal preference, I like my lamb shank to be hearty and meaty. However, this was a little bit light on the palate, with flavours taking more of a compliment to the yellow curry. The lamb shank was noticeably tender though. šŸŒ· Service was friendly, and they were on top with our water top ups and fresh plates. Food was quick to come out, presentation was on point. Interior was casual, with its exposed brick and colourful basket lights. Great place to catch up with friends!

Some of the most unique food I've ever tasted, the sour taste from the tamarind sauce followed by the fleshy taste of their famous fish is something I recommend anyone coming to ladyboy try. Staff is very friendly and the owner was there to help us
