“thai food ?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

Lunchtime is usually very quiet so I dont understand why the service is slow?
The Thai meals are Ok but they can be a bit sweet for my liking.
We had to send a Pad Thai back once because it was too sweet.
OK if you have a sweet tooth.

“Great Food & Tuk Tuk Fun!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

With the free pick-up & drop-off in a Tuk Tuk we were thinking that the food would be so-so but it really was top-notch! Started with the mixed entree, then had a stir fry and a curry as mains, both chicken - the quality of the meat was excellent, not at all dry, the ingredients were fresh and the sauces were lovely. The prices are very reasonable and portions are quite large. Loved it! Would recommend to anyone visiting Whakatane (locals, you are even luckier!) - make a booking and get the Tuk Tuk treatment. :D

“Just off a roundabout in town for some really tasty Thai food at a good price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2013

This restaurant is about 200 metres from the boat harbour for White Island. It's on the main road just after leaving the first roundabout, on the right side of the street. Super tasty food at a good price.
