This would have to be the best Thai restaurant I have been to for a long time. Beautiful Thai cuisine and very prompt service with the prices on a par with all Thai restaurants I have been to. If you like Thai food try this one for sure.

We hosted a large office party here and the food was incredible. The service was great and very efficient. We'd definitely eat here again.

Baked salmon was delish. Pad Thai was a little under cooked and seemed eggy but they were happy to replace with another meal. Would go back again.

My partner and I are regulars at this place and it's always good! We try new dishes every time we go and we've never been disappointed. Amazing food and great service! The owner is a really friendly guy and the wait staff are super.

Staff look tired and stressed. Food is too sweet and tables are so close I feel like I'm having a romantic dinner with the family at the table next to us.

We phoned and booked at short notice, it was a Monday, straight to a table, the restaurant was forty % full, nice and quiet, not too dark. The service was very good regarding drinks and food, and as we just had a main each, a duck dish and a fish dish, very good indeed, we were home in 65 minutes.... More

We selected Suk Jai based on the reviews and the food was great we were quite hungry and the service was quick and friendly. Heaps of rice (and more offered). The icing on the cake however was that we were offered a lift at no cost back to our hotel as it was likely a taxi would take half an... More

Thank you very much for your kind review. I just want to make a comment specifically about me dropping you back at your hotel after your dinner. Whangarei is a small town and at night it can take very long time for taxis to arrive. However, on some very busy nights, none of us would be able to leave the... More
