“Excellent food, if only it was ready faster”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2013

Ordered take out, was told wait would be 25 mins, in the end waited 50 minutes for it. Food was excellent, but the wait time was a little ridiculous.

“THE Best Thai outside Thailand !!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We were recommended this place by a local on TA, for their cheap lunch-time menu.

He wasn't wrong , great value ................. What he failed to tell us was the quality of the food !!!

Maybe he'd never been to Thailand and didn't know how fantastic their food actually is !!!

We had a sumptuous lunch for buttons compared to other place's prices in QT.
Pad Thai, fried rice, green curry, stir fry, all of it was incredible.

My Wife and I returned from 2 weeks holiday in Thailand 2 months ago, and my Daughter spent 6 months there recently. So you could say, we know what we are talking about when I say ............. This is the best Thai food any of us have had outside Thailand!!

Overall ............ Extremely Highly Recommended.

“Really good Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

This is a mixed review,

My wife and I first ate here on a Friday night during our stay in Queenstown. The service was great and the food was amazing! Hands down the best Pad Thai either of us have ever had and we have eaten a lot of Thai food over the years! Next comes the Sizzling King prawns, the prawns where perfectly cooked and the sauce was just fantastic, also had the Red duck curry special which was above par.

Sadly we loved it so much we came back on Sunday, Although the food was good except for a change with the sizzling beef which did nothing for us, the service was terrible! The resturant was full (we had made a reservation) it took over an hour for our meals to come out with our starter sitting on our table finished for at least 30 min. When we said something about the wait we where informed that they had a lot of takeaways (Sorry not a good enough reason to leave in house guests waiting for food for over an hour) Clearly there was not enough staff for a clearly busy period and even though they could not service the people they had waiting they continued to replace empty tables with more walk ins.
