This is a good thai place. The pad thai and pad see eu was on point and the various chicken dishes we ordered tasted great. You can't go wrong here. Good food, friendly atmosphere, nice seating. Well, seating is more suitable for summer time. During winter, you might want to eat at home or in your car.

This place is a definite must have! Super cute set up and the staff were amazing! Went out of there was to suggest meals when we were unsure exactly what we wanted! Meals were full of vegetables and the sauces were to die for! 10/10 would go back!

We went here as it was across the road from where we were staying and a wet night. Did not realise it was takeaway but that was ok. The food was nice but my BBQ beef dish was so spicy I could not eat it.

Best recommendation we got in Christchurch was to find this place. We ate two nights in a row here. Its fast , affordable, flavourful and they don't skimp on quantity! What an truly innovative idea. The food is really remarkable, especially for a take away thai. They have seats there with music and an ambience, but in winter it may... More

This place is wonderful! The staff are very onto it, you never have to wait very long for your meals, its very inexpensive and comes out hot and full of flavour. Haven't had a bad experience there, definitely the best thai in Christchurch.

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.
