Groovy set up, super quick and absolutely delicious. We would highly recommend this as a top cheap eatery. We had takeaways but there are picnic tables to eat at.

I mean - get over to this delicious and fresh Thai Street Food restaurant/cafe, and order loads of food. We ordered stirfrys and curries, with starters and every meal was equally delicious. Servings are large, full of hearty vegetables and with generous serves of protein. Appreciate the super kind service and the candies that they gave us. Yum!

I used to stop by and grab the prawn fresh spring rolls frequently, but today I was disappointed. There used to be about 3 prawns in each, visible from the outside, I couldn't see any in this lot so checked inside, 1 prawn cut lengthways in the centre. Cost cutting measure?? Quite disappointed and no longer worth the money.

People always rave about Thai Container so I just had to check it out. A unique set up and very popular. I arrived on a Thursday at 5.30 and a constant stream of customers kept coming. Service was friendly, lots of choices and the prices very reasonable. I ordered the stir fry calamari, pork garlic and pepper, and 2 lots... More

We had wonderful experience and my wife and I enjoyed our food immensely. Only complaint the day we went was the wind had picked up and kept blowing our napkins. All in all great convenient spot and experience.

We have eaten at this outdoor venue a year ago and it still tasted as good. There is a good selection of food and the service is really quick. There was a continuous flow of customers. They also do take away

I had the Garlic Pepper Chicken. The chicken and veges were cooked very well, but the dish had no flavour whatsoever. It tasted like a stir-fry chicken with soy sauce. There was no hint of galic OR pepper.

Description
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.
