We had takeaway and we loved the asian food we ate. It was fast and good. It is good but quite expensive. We recommand it.

Thoroughly enjoyable food, good atmosphere, and good value for money - have visited a couple of times in the last few months and each time had good service, food and wine - even my husband has tried new dishes - and enjoyed each one. Highly recommend

I've lived in South East Asia and the outside bar had a real feel of the East! Inside the food and service were excellent. We met an old friend and his wife from our days in the UAE in the 1970's - we had a great evening!

Popped in on the off chance and was pleased to get a table as it was very busy. This had no effect on the service, the staff were attentive and polite. The food was amazing - I couldn't fault it ! A thoroughly enjoyable evening!

Great Thai food. Large portions of food, the desserts were great which is often not the case in Thai restaurants. Lovely outdoor area for dining. Staff were very friendly. Nice pub area to sit in prior to/ after the meal.

I have been to the Rising Sun in Christchurch on many occasions and I'm yet to be disappointed. It is by far one of my favourite resturants. The service is brilliant and the staff are always very welcoming, nothing is ever too much. The staff always go out of their way to ensure you're happy. The food is consistently amazing... More

Four of us had dinner here on Saturday night and were very impressed by the quality of the food and excellent service from the young staff. Since my last visit a year ago there has been some major work carried out throughout including a new wonderful eating area outside. Justin and his staff have worked very hard these past 12... More

We were very impressed by the service, food and atmosphere . We were helped by friendly and knowledgeable staff and left full,satisfied and with a wish to return if we were in the area. The only odd thing to us was the name and appearance from the outside of the premises which looked more like a standard English pub, which... More

On a hot summer's evening, we had a meal in the garden. The garden tables were in demand but the observant server noticed that some diners were leaving and showed us to the table. The food is good but not exceptional, the mixed platter of starters is very good indeed. What sets this place apart is the service, the staff... More
