Tasty authentic Thai with a great view

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... read more

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.

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

The food here is delicious, but completely spoiled by the dreadful manners of the waiting staff - food passed across the table when there is plenty of room to walk around, and plates cleared before people have finished eating.

Nice friendly service, but way to much soy sauce in our dish. Location across from the harbor area, but the street is under construction right now.

Delicious Thai food can be found in this restaurant and when we were there, they have the 2 for 1 deal for some selected dishes. The serving of the main dish was quite large and filling too.
