Write because you want to, not because you have to.

Whether you are an avid sports fan, a rising gymnast, or simply a tourist who has somehow ended up in the Olympic Park suburb of Sydney, make sure you stop by this small yet rewarding Thai restaurant.
Hi Thai is a beautiful, quaint Thai restaurant that is situated opposite the railway station. It has the most friendly staff who are always there to make sure that you have an enjoyable experience in fine Thai dining. The menu of Hi Thai consists of a variety of delicacies to choose from - all the way from Satay Chicken and Sexy Girl as entrées to the classic Green Curry and steamed rice for the main course.

It is perfect for almost any occasion, depending on the time of the day. If you go in the early hours (around mid-day), then expect to have most of the place to yourselves. This may be the perfect time to have a quiet, romantic lunch date perhaps, or have a lovely catch up with friends.
The place gets busy as the day progresses, so if you end up at Hi Thai after 5pm, expect to be waiting in line as the place gets filled up in a flash of a second. And with good reason.
You have the option to be seated inside in the air-conditioned space, surrounded by the lovely decor, not to mention a wall designed in the form of a wine cellar, or outside with heaters provided for every table. Personally, if it's a beautiful day, bask in the sunshine while enjoying some of the most authentic and tastebud-tingling food in style.
The prices of Hi Thai are a bit on the expensive side (sorry, uni students), but if you're going as a big group, you can get a lot of value for your money.
In terms of what is highly recommended - I'd suggest getting the satay chicken as an entrée, because let's face it - satay is a hit with everyone!
I'd also recommend the beef masamman with steamed white rice, or the traditional green curry. Both these dishes are delicious and are bound to make your belly happy.
