More like Chinese. No lemon grass, no lime flavours. No coriander. No subtlety. Just a lot of coconut milk in a big bowl of thick gloopy orange curry.

Stopped in for lunch, although being very busy the service was efficient and friendly. Our choices met our expectations. We will be returning again. Thanks for the enjoyable meal.

In Whangarei on business and the place was packed on a Monday night. Lots of takeaways flying out the door too. This is my second visit in 2 years. I had a glass of Riesling-wine list very reasonable with some Okish choices-and a very hot and spicy duck noodle soup which was done exactly as I asked. It was incredibly... More

We go to the Pimarn Thai Restaurant whenever we are in Whangarei. The staff, are wonderful, they rememberd us even though it would be months before we would go back! The food is always very good. I love their prawn and chicken Pad Thai. I would recommend this restaurant any time. Well done guys!

I always enjoy the food here however the service is not always the best due to the volume of customers and when you bring your own wine the waitresses tend to leave you to your-selves more.
