Had a takeaway lunch from here a few weeks ago with a selection of different main and starter meals which were all delicious and ready at the time we requested. Today I had a lunch meeting here and again the food was delicious, service was great, even though quite busy, and at a reasonable price of about $10.50 for a... More

Restaurant was too busy for us to dine in so we opted for takeaway. To be fair, we didn't have a booking and it was a Friday night. Our order was ready quickly and was fantastic. $36 for 2 appetisers, 1 main & rice and that was a good amount of food for 2. Next time we visit Whangarei, will... More

This restaurant is very popular - we had to wait 15minutes for a table. We all enjoyed our meals. They were well presented, a good portion size and tasty! The service was very good. The only thing we didn't like was the choice of very full on classical music - that didn't seem to fit the restaurant.

Thank you for your compliments about our food. Yes, I myself am a very fond lover of classical music and I try choosing most beautiful pieces of classical compositions for our restaurant. There are a few customers (like you) who preferred Thai music to the restaurant, as they believe a Thai restaurant should play Thai music. However the vast majority... More

I am very glad to know that we are the place where you feel confident that you and your party will be full if you choose us. I myself am also a very discerning diner myself, and I get frustrated every time when I visit a restaurant and do not feel that their meals are filling. So I always make... More
