A quick Friday night meal, curry puffs and Gai tod (chicken wings) followed by beef mussaman curry and an old favourite pad see eiw. Beef a little on the tough side and could have done with a few more vege. Price mid fifties which is getting up there. Nice friendly staff. Ok but not outstanding

We have found this place and it has become one of our favourite for takeways. We always enjoy Thai food but this has to be one of the best.

This was our second visit to this great Thai restaurant. The menu is easily understood and the food matches the description, so no nasty surprises when the food arrives. The prices are very reasonable. Will go again and again

Had the pad thai today. Even though the portion was huge, I found it to be really bland, and I don't usually eat very salty foods. The pad thai was lacking flavour and it was a bit too dry- not what a pad thai should be. For $14, I thought it was a bit unreasonable given that I've just eaten... More

I dined here for Mother's Day with my family after going to the movies. We were early so didn't have any trouble getting a table for four. I can recommend the Satay Chicken (no peanuts) for an entree - superb!! The Pork Mussaman Curry was excellent too. Good portion sizes. Very friendly & informative service. Very clean looking kitchen &... More

This food has some of the best tasting IsaanThai food in Auckland. For those who are unsure of what "Isaan" is, it is the northeast region of Thailand that borders Laos. Most Thais in New Zealand are actually from this region so generally the food in Tha restaurants reflect this to a degree. They are not like a lot of... More

Have been going here for many years. Never had a bad meal. Very well priced. The only thing i found is now they charge you for rice where before it was free with the meal. Great place if you want a quick, nice and easy meal.

It's hard to find decent Thai restaurants that don't change up the flavor of the dishes to match local tastes, but at least here we felt the Pad Thai was decent and had good flavor. Furthermore the pricing is affordable and won't break the bank. Definitely want to come back for other menu items like the curry etc.
