Takeaway......delivered

Too exhausted to go out for dinner we ordered takeaway which was delivered for $5.00. Two mixed entrees, one main and boiled rice was sufficient for my husband and myself all for $39.00. When ordered I was told 35 minutes......our meal was there within 20. Great!!!

Service and food at this restaurant totally recommended. I went with the suggested vegetarian option and was not disappointed. We went with a group and we all loved our meals. Reasonably priced also. Would definitely go again.

Great food, easy location, friendly service. The place was packed - but in a good way. Have a rez on summer weekends, for dinner, for sure. Order what you like, I'm sure it's all good :)

I had the chicken, ginger and mushroom with rice. It didn't have much flavour or heat and was not very hot. The rice was served to my plate from a large pot but it was not left at the table but I could have asked for more apparently. My friend had the chicken satay starter as a main course with... More

As a Thai it's so hard to find authentic and real Thai food, but this is the place in Taupo for it! Great price for the plates and service is so lovely. We had a group of 13 and they accommodated us without a fuss or a hassle or delays

Accommodated me and one other at last minute on a busy night. Great service, food and drinks were brought out very quickly. Food was delicious, and portion sizes were very generous. Finished off with hot towels to clean hands.
