Enjoyed the food. Service and presentation

We were sceptical about small town Thai restaurant but were pleasantly surprised. The food and service were both good. Extensive menu, and takeaway available.

I was looking for a place to have a quick lunch. Saw the $12.50 lunch sign and went in. Had a very nice chicken dish with noodles and veges. Would recommend.

Our motel recommended this restaurant - we are so glad he did! The food was great, with delicate flavours and tender meat. The service was prompt and courteous. There are great views across the Bay towards Russell. The restaurant is licensed, but I understand BYO is also welcome. They also cater for take-away. We only had a couple of nights... More

We went here, not sure if we would like it, but found the dinner to be delicious ! It was 2 for 1 that night, which made it the least expensive meal we had in New Zealand !.....even cheaper than fish and chip places. The tables are individually draped with different colors and designs of beautiful material. We found it... More
