Description: We are a relocated restaurant from the city due to the earthquakes. After the Earthquakes we managed to start up again this time as a takeaway with outdoor seating and making great use of a 40ft container which we converted to a 40ft Kitchen, Our Chefs are still serving restaurant quality food, at takeaway prices. We have a busy little spot so wait times can average between 5-15mins for your meal , txt orders are a good way to go on a wet day ... We look forward to seeing you here. Just remember when placing feedback ..If you have had a problem let us know straight away so we can resolve it, it's hard to be given a opportunity to fix things if you don't tell us.

You must try this place. The food is so delicious. The owner is such a true example of New Zealand hospitality. Very friendly and welcoming. Every dish we had we would rate a 10! Spicy fried rice and pad Thai was incredible. You won't regret this one. Please give it a try.

Close to our motel and we like Thai food. We were not disappointed, tasty food and quickly served. There is a small outside eating area and they give you sporks although it is mostly a takeaway. Food was hot and nicely packed.

Read the reviews and thought we would go check it out, cool wee setup very creative thinking to build a commercial kitchen out of a container and it's all dressed up with graffiti art all over the outside. The menu has a really good range of Thai dishes the young girl helped us pick some of our meals, the portion... More

We ate here for our last night in NZ after hearing recommendations. The food was relatively quick but I didn't realise until I was back at my hotel that they had given me the complete wrong order. It was some sort of pork dish instead of the satay tofu that I ordered. I picked out all the pork and the... More

While the reviews did encourage us to get some Thai food from the Thai Container we were a little disappointed. I am a big fan of good Thai food and I'd have to rate the dishes we got from this place as average - not bad food, but not memorable. The Massaman curry was light and watery - not the... More

After reading such good reviews we were excited to try out the container style dining experience. The menu had lots of options to choose from - chose 5 options. Prices are approx 10 - 12 dollars per dish. Portions are large as well. Unfortunately the flavour was lacking in dishes - maybe the staff had an off night. Will try... More

The food and prices at this funky Thai (takeaway) restaurant were great. We had great weather so were able to eat at the outdoor seating area.

I love my Thai food, and this place is right on top. My father, who doesn't like anything other than really plain food, downed the fried rice with chicken and thought it was amazing. Mum, who is also fussy, loved the stir fried vegetables. Hubby had the satay prawns and I had the most amazing beef salad. With perfectly cooked... More

Appeared to have a lot of local clientele which is always a good sign of the quality of the good. Friendly and efficient service despite being quite busy and the take away meal we ordered was tasty.
