    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.

    This was our first visit to Jumbo and it most certainly won’t be our last. The food was absolutely spectacular and the service was faultless. I could go on and on, but needless to say we enjoyed every aspect of the restaurant.

    Not up to the standard that we first experienced here about 6 - 12 months ago. Cocktails were brilliant then, now disappointing. Wine we selected was not available. Dish we selected was not available. But the food we did have was still excellent. The prices here are on the high side, so expectations are also high.

    Food was fresh and delish - we had Banquet 1 - it all looked great and tasted wonderful. Perfect portion sizes. Service was attentive, friendly and polite. Loved the lychee cocktail! The ambience of the restaurant was calm, modern and comfortable. The lighting was a fraction too bright, but that's probably more an us problem, we prefer slightly moodier lighting for dinner dining. It was a great evening, would recommend Jumbo whole-heartedly!

    The portions are of good size and the wine list is great. The food is good, but far from an authentic taste of Thailand. The Restaurant is nice and very clean we found. Don't think we will go there next time we visit Brisbane.

    I love Jumbo. Been many times. Potentially the best Thai food in BNE. Ordered red curry and pumpkin and apple eggplant curry. Red sauce was amazing. Just thought the pumpkin aspect was lacking and the pieces in it were unevenly cut and had skin on. Also didn’t really detect eggplant. I get times are hard so don’t take to heart.. just a comment
