Adequate food although the prices are steadily increasing. Food comes very quickly from ordering but I am not sure what that actually indicates. Food is OK.

Food is always good, fast and great service. Staff are always pleasant and accommodating, I have turned up un-booked for lunch on many occasions and they have always accommodated.

We booked late and still got in on a Fri evening. We were given a window table. The service was very good, as was the vege pad Thai, and the red duck curry was also very good. We shared banana fritters for dessert. The esk valley wine was also good.

We regularly order takeaways from here, beats stopping for McDonald's or other.. Every now and again we dine in. The food is always to a high standard as is the service. We'll continue to visit!

When I first stayed in Whangarei some 15-16 years ago, this was where the first Thai restaurant opened. It was known as Lek's Tasty Thai and it was great food in a very low key atmosphere. It took a long time to convince the Whangarei locals to test this "new cuisine" but slowly it started growing into a popular restaurant.... More

This place never fails to please. The standard of food is always consistently good, and there are plenty of options to choose from. Good atmosphere, quality table linen and excellent service. Situated in central Whangarei.
