For Thai Food that will make you smile
Driving through West Ryde along Victoria Road, you'd never guess this main strip, with a couple of chemists and an Asian grocery store, is also home to Tommy Thai Smile, a Thai Restaurant that gets everything right.

Tommy Thai Smile serves up flavoursome, MSG-free meals, from traditional dishes like pad Thai and pad see ew, to unique creations such as their duck rolls (similar to Peking duck, but with fresh salad rolled in).

Walking through the heavy glass door is akin to stepping into another world. The room is dim with red side-lighting that casts a glow upon wood-panel walls, creating a romantic ambience. Sitting in niches are smiling statues of child-like Buddha in various poses surrounded by patterned wallpaper.

Inside Tommy Thai Smile

The waiter is quick to serve and courteous. Rice is regularly heaped onto your plate and is brought out from the kitchen at intervals rather than left at your table, ensuring it is steaming hot every time it's served.

The restaurant is located at 983 Victoria Road, West Ryde and street parking can be found on adjacent streets or after 7:00pm on Victoria Road. There is also free three hour parking close by at the shopping centre. Check signage if unsure.

Starters are around $8 and up and mains will set you back $15-$20, which is a little pricer than most Thai restaurants. This is made up for with the quality of their food, so if flavour wins over price, than it's worth a go. If your pocket is in a pinch then it's best to find a cheaper place.
