Spirit House – Sunshine Coast – Queensland

by Suha on April 26, 2011


A couple had a vision and passion and made it happen. They bought a 5 acre plot of land in the hinterland off the Sunshine coast of Queensland and spend 5 years developing a beautiful tropical garden setting and a Thai restaurant. To call it just another Thai restaurant in an understatement. It is amazing. The setting is magical, the service is friendly and food stunning! Even after 16 years – every dish we had was amazing. The menu is centered around a sharing concept. There were four of us today but we wanted to order everything on the menu so had a bit of a problem choosing. At the end I think we did well. All the flavours were fresh and strong and varied and we were envious of every dish that went by our table that we had not ordered. I wish it was closer to Sydney! Highly recommend The Spirit house. Sensational food…great setting.



Tropical garden setting


Great view from every table


Spiced crisp whitebait with green pawpaw salad with chilli lime sauce – the salad in this dish was just outstanding – thinly sliced green pawpaw or mango in season, sliced raw onions, mint, basil, lime. Chilli. Cashews….very hot but very nice.


Soft shell crab with chilli garlic sauce – not quite sure about this one. Was a bit dry and chewy for me


Char grilled beef ribs with sweet chilli dressing and orange mint salad. – love their salads. Really nice and fresh. The ribs were perfectly cooked – crunchy and soft all in one.


 Whole crispy fish with tamarind chilli sauce – amazing – and we ate every bit of flesh we could get off. Yum.


Lemon grass curry of chicken with kaffir lime – a lot of turmeric in this dish.

Chocolate orange cake with red been ice cream – what a pleasant surprise!!!!!! This was sensational. Warm chocolate orange cake with orange sauce and thinly sliced candied orange peels. So so so good!!!!!!
