Excellent food at a good price

We stopped here on our way through Whangarei travelling south quite late on a Sunday evening so it wasn't busy. We were in hurry and it was great to get our meals so quickly. This is probably the best Thai food I have eaten in a long time so what a bonus to get a quick and delicious meal when... read more

This Thai restaurant, while frequently busy particularly at night, delivers great Thai food and a very pleasant dining experience. The business of the place steers it away from a 'romantic' place to dine and clearly towards being a 'fun' place to dine. The formal atmosphere of the restaurant, is pleasantly muted by the fact it is a busy, excellently hosted,... More

First time visit to this restaurant. It was crowded but not obnoxiously loud. Catered to both seated and take away clients. My only suggestion would be that the takeaway clients could be screened from the restaurant as we were seated close to t he door and people were constantly in / out. however this did not distract from an excellent...

We have been to this restaurant several times both for dining in and for takeaways. This is a special place to take a loved one, the setting and ambience is one to remember. As for the service we can not speak highly enough from the moment you walk through the door. This is our favourite place to take visitors and... More

Lovely food with great flavour and freshly cooked. The Restaurant offers a few meals that are a little different to the other Thai restaurants in town. It is a very busy place so if you don't have a reservation either dine early before 7pm or after 8pm. although they will always try and fit you in.The staff are very friendly... More

Four of us (two were visitors from the USA) stopped en route between the Far North and Auckland. We were dressed in holiday attire but were received graciously. The restaurant was busy, being a Friday evening. The meal was delectable, the service outstanding, and the waiting staff, looking gorgeous in their Thai clothing, were attentive and helpful, despite being busy.... More
