A Rani Restaurant in Malop Street under the Cressy Building between Yarra Street and Office Works has the reputation of being one of the best Thai restaurants in Geelong. The food is sensational the biggest problem is knowing that you can’t try everything on the menu each visit.

The Pad Phrik with stir fried chilli paste and basil is another great option.
