Hot food on a cold night

Well priced average Thai food. A bit chaotic with more guests than could be easily catered for. Very cold night and door often left open by people coming and going. Not licenced even for BYO

Enjoyed our Pad Thai seafood and Panang Curry seafood - the curry dish could have been a bit more generous, but there was sufficient rice and both were very good. The serving plates were very attractive too as was the traditional brass cutlery. Minimal waiting time and all so friendly.

We visited this restaurant hoping for a delicious thai meal. Instead we received food which consisted or frozen peas and corn and the meal sizes are very small. They do not have credit card facility - cash/eft only!

We bought lunch here to take away. The food was good, the ingredients were fresh and they cooked it while we waited.

The food is tasty, very tasty, but the staff DOESN'T speak english! They understand a littlebit but if you want to ask how is a dish prepared or if it is spicy or sweet - they won't understand you. The design is casual, average I might say. Nothing except the food is special here.

Cheap and cheerful decor but food tasted amazing, came quickly and it thought was very reasonably priced. Would definitely recommend.

Great food with fresh ingredients at a reasonable price. Was the best takeaway food we had during our holiday in New Zealand.

Husband and I were really looking forward to some a Thai food, and finally found this restaurant after initially being unable to locate it. Was really disappointed to find it closed, despite their hours on the door saying they should be open. As with another reviewer, there was no note to explain why. Very disappointing.

We went there on Tuesday night when it was cold and wet in Hanmer Springs. We were greeted by a roaring wood fire and a very friendly lady, maybe the owner. The curries were good and really warmed us up. It was an enjoyable experience.
