Nothing wrong with this small restaurant, no liquor licence but that was fine. Excellent Thai food. No particular ambience except for asian hole in the wall.

Location: After walking around, we found the Thai restaurant in a hidden hallway. Very lovely place. Food: At the beginning we didn't expect the food was authentic but we were wrong. All food we ordered were quite authentic and have a real Thai taste. Hospitality: the lady owner is very friendly, kind and welcome. In overall we love this place.... More

We walked along the street and realised there were a few hidden restaurants off from the sight. We decided to try this Thai Chilli restaurant since we love Thai food. At first we thought it would not be so good since it's in a small town and do not have enough ingredients to make real Thai food. However, it was... More

We were really looking forward to have a thai meal, unfortunately the restaurant was closed despite advertised opening hours and no notice was visible to tell us why.... What a pity! It is hard to score in this case but it seems I have to dot something above for my review to be "done" ......

One of the best Thai red curries I have ever had. The food was fantastic! The atmosphere, was slightly disappointing, but easily fixed, background music would be much more pleasant than listening to kitchen noises during a meal. Both my partner and i were very impressed with the food, cleanliness and presentation.

This is some of the tastiest Thai food we've ever had. The curries and rice dishes were so tasty. If we could have eaten more, we would have. The lady taking our orders and bringing our food was very friendly. We would definitely eat there again, and wish that we had eaten here on all our other trips to Hanmer... More

We were really looking forward to a Spicy Thai meal, found this spot and on entering it was absolutely empty.At first we thought we were early and thus the empty place, but after eating we did know the real reason. The food was far off from being a proper thai restaurant. The phad thai noodles were stale and not at... More

We ate there twice this trip and loved the food. It is very small but the weather was good so we ate outside each time. The not-quite 'tempura' prawns are superb while the lemon fish was also very good. But then, all meals there over 3 or 4 years have been good.

Really looking forward to a Thai meal, found this spot and on entering there were no tables available. Ah we thought, a good sign, very popular. We were greeted and seated outside and told someone would be out shortly to take our order. First fail! Finally another guest came out and learned us to a table inside. Score. Table was... More
