This place is always full but finds a place for you. The staff are very jovial and pleasant. The menu is standard Thai and well presented and good. However, one great aspect is that the entrees have four items, spring roll, stuffed mushrooms etc. This is great when there are two of you and you don't need to decide who... More

Having had bad meals and takeaways a few years ago I must admit, I have avoided Starlake. Joined some colleagues for an early dinner recently and was pleasantly surprised. Friendly attentive staff and the food was good. Will try again.

Good Thai meal, reasonable prices too. Was yummy! Full of veggies which were cooked perfectly. The mild wasn't too spicy for those who prefer a mild flavour.

Fab Thai meal in excellent restaurant. We had 4 dishes which both kids adored, the mountain pork ( spicy but oh so good), the Penang chicken my fav, the Starlake noodles for the fussy ( no I dont want spicy food) child - who LOVED it, and a green curry with prawns.. all very very good.

StarLake in Havelock North Village has been somewhat quietly been in business for 28 years. This is a barometer for a restaurant that one cannot argue with. Both times that we have been to StarLake the food has not only looked appetizing on the plate but the tastes are memorable. And the prices for the quantity and quality of the... More

The vegetarian fried rice was not Thai at all. And it was truly only rice and egg. No vegetables. Not just one little bit of vege. Not one. No THAI lemon... More

We were very pleased to find this restaurant in Havelock North. We had previously had enjoyable take-away food from there and so decided to try their restaurant. We were no disappointed. The proprietor was very friendly and helpful and talked to us about the various dishes available. Eventually, we chose the Scallops (S7) and a beef dish (M5) plus two... More

went to dinner ordered two soups, chicken satay and the boss ordered a crispy squid, which to be honest we were disappointed with it had been coated in batter and deep dried. It was not delivered to the table at the same time as the satay which was disappointing and when it arrived it was cold. The soup was great... More
