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

We have just been back to Rising Sun. If you want really nice Thai food, in a lovely setting, try here. Great outside space, perfect for pre-dinner drinks in the sun, and can highly recommend the Sjngapore noodles, and Green Curry (very spicy). And good prices for quality of food. Will be back again. All the staff are VERY friendly!!!!

I have visited the Rising Sun every summer for several years but there is a noticeable difference this year. Previously I would have rated this pub grub "Good" but this year I found it faultless. Service was provided by very personable, attentive young servers. The food was well presented, of generous proportion and good quality. Try as I might I... More

This place is pricey, but the food is always of the best quality and well cooked and presented. Its a small place so booking is advised. The garden area is nice on a summer evening. Staff friendly and helpful.
