This is a restaurant that knows and practices service and hospitality in every way. Warm greeting from the host on arrival and the attention to every detail was given throughout the evening. Totally amazing selection of food. We had one vegan and one vegetarian in our group so for a restaurant to cater for everyone is great!!!!

Food was excellent! Service was superb. Clean and spacious. Not knocking against each other's seats. As a department at work we've been there twice and is classified now as one of our favorites!

Some say it’s the best thai food & service while in Auckland. All we know is that we call it bloody brilliant. Excellent Thai food cooked and served fresh. The owners are super friendly and met us with genuine, welcoming warmth. Prices were a little on the high side, but that is what one pays for quality.

This is a great place with fabulous food, great service and generous portions. I could not fault the service, they were fast and efficient and the food came out quickly, I had the mixed starter which was tasty and then the duck curry which I would definitely order again with bamboo shoots.

Had a group of 15 reunion there for dinner on a Saturday night. The waiting persons were so attentive, we never need to ask for water because our glasses were topped up frequently. Took us a while to have every one food ordered but our food came so fast and tasty. All our dishes were generous in size and the... More
