A new player on Petrie Plaza, Mon Thani is a strong showing in the sub $10 lunch space.

Borrowing heavily on the style of the iconic Burmese Curry Place; Mon Thani serves up two dishes, requested by number on rice for $8.

I had the prawn cakes you can see pictured. They were awesome, as was the pork mince with beans.

My luncheoning companion Geoff had the stir fry prawns which were monsters for such a cheap meal:

If you like spicy thai style curries and you’re in Civic it’s well worth putting in your rotation.

(For more sub $10 lunches in Civic check the tag, if you’ve got recommendations let me know.)

also found this review here with even more dishes and photos 🙂


You guys are spot on! This place is awesome! delicious food, pleasant, polite, no-frills and unbeatable value. Highly recommended.

Inspired by the Riot ACT I’m slowly working (only started this week) my way around Canberra checking out affordable lunch options and writing a small blurb and posting to twitter and facebook via https://www.facebook.com/CBRfood and @CBRFoodie

There might also be a simple blog on the way as well which I hope to put together over X,mas oncei have a few more photos and samples under my belt. Keep up the reviews guys – inspiring and informative 🙂

Highly recommend this place – the food’s excellent!

All I remember was a Skywhale hat … it’s breasts bouncing like bobbing blonde ringlets … I think there may have been a skirt … honestly I can’t really recall but I do remember them looking awfully cool as they walked away…

So if you are mugged for your magic glasses by someone in a Skywhale hat, you’ll know who it is.

Even if she is wearing a skirt…(For I too would like this thing called coolness of which we speak.)

No apologies necessary poetix … they’re magic sunnies you see … they cause anyone who wears them to appear totally cool

… that said, I’ve not seen them on JB

Let me help you out poetix … they’re cool 😉

(a bit scratched and worn … but still cool)

Terribly sorry. I thought they might be JB’s. 🙂

poetix said :

I can’t figure out if those sunglasses are cool or hideous.

If we knew whether they belonged to JB or Geoff that might help …

Not a kingfisher to be seen anywhere??As for the sunnies i’m going hideous 🙂

I can’t figure out if those sunglasses are cool or hideous.

If I knew who they belonged to (Anna Wintour or the mysterious Geoff) that might help…

Food looks tasty, anyway.
