Visited the Thai Container for lunch with my girlfriend. Both had Pad Thais which were delicious, and food was reasonably priced. Really friendly staff as well!

Great thai with vegetarian options and a kitchen that is super flexible to requests. The best part - you can literally text your order in, they will confirm they have received it, and it will be ready by the time you get there. So good...More

It was recommended by a friend, but wasn't overly impressed as we wanted real Thai food not westernised versions and they seemed didn't really care about the service. Food was good I guess but wouldn't go specially for it again.

Read recent reviews and swung by on a chilly Christchurch evening. Swift service and freshly cooked, absolutely delicious genuine Thai fare, better than many restaurants we have experienced in major Western cities. Varied ingredients married spice and taste to perfection, large portions and seating outside...More

We are a relocated restaurant from the city due to the earthquakes. After the Earthquakes we managed to start up again this time as a takeaway with outdoor seating and making great use of a 40ft container which we converted to a 40ft Kitchen, Our Chefs are still serving restaurant quality food, at takeaway prices. We have a busy little spot so wait times can average between 5-15mins for your meal , txt orders are a good way to go on a wet day ... We look forward to seeing you here. Just remember when placing feedback ..If you have had a problem let us know straight away so we can resolve it, it's hard to be given a opportunity to fix things if you don't tell us.
