We had tried two other Thai places in the area and they were mediocre at best. Our third try was a winner. Thai spring rolls hot and tasty and the dipping sauce was licksmaking. I had a curry coconut dish with chicken which was very good. Service was good and the ambiance very nice. I live in a city with... More

We had a fantastic meal at Starlake with our family of five. We decided to share several dishes. The first to come out was the Choo chew fish in red curry sauce.

We chose the $40 set menu with a few extras between 4. There was so much food we took the leftovers and the dessert home in a doggy back. The food was delicious and the hostess friendly and attentive. We will all definitely go back next time we pass through Havelock North.

This was the perfect place for a family birthday. We chose the $35 per head set menu and were not disappointed. All of us liked all of the dishes and there was a good choice. The price included entree, mains and dessert. THe service was prompt and the hostess was very helpful. Would recommend and we will go again.

A great find in a small town. Had takeaways and had the squid dish, it was very nice. Crispy a little, not too much not too little. Good sized pieces of squid & lots of it too. Noted as medium in heat, that it was for kiwi medium, it was pretty good heat wise, could have been a little more... More
