“Really delicious, authentic Thai food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 20, 2012

I was so happy when this Thai restaurant opened in Akaroa. Its nice to have something different than the usual beef, lamb, fish choices of normal kiwi fare. The chefs here do an amazing job and I've never had anything here that I didn't like. Its nice to have a take away option as well.

“Great Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

Possibly best value for money dining in Akaroa. Main courses quite cheap at around $20.00, and large portions served. Good friendly service, and good to dine outside on the footpath on a warm summer evening with great views over the bay. Will be back.

“Fragrant spot”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2012

Nothing like decent Thai food.....great spot to eat or just call up for take out. Remember to book as it's very popular.

Food is great and reasonable prices. Enjoy.
