The kai here is lovely, service is incredible and fast. Great value for money. The restaurant is clean, modern and lovely. It's fairly popular especially on weekends so I would recommend booking.

The food here is excellent both in choices and tastiness. Service is also great and whilst it is a 'full' restaurant you don't seem to be too aware of other diners. Kitchen noise is very minimal and bathroom facilities are fine. Always happy for excuse...More

Suk Jai is a regular eating out spot for us, the service is always speedy and friendly. The food is always beautifully presented, fresh and flavoursome! I would always recommend this lovely restaurant in Whangarei!

We enjoyed our meals at this restaurant, but after our main courses we were left looking at our dirty plates for about thirty minutes, at which point we had lost interest in desserts or coffee, so I paid the bill and we left. Disappointing.More

This restaurant fully deserves its #1 rating- it is exceptional. The principal flavour of the dish takes centre stage on the menu. Try the panang curry or the tamarind they were without a doubt the best ever.

Vegetarian Thai is to die for with a selection of food to satisfy a fussy meat/seafood eater. Wines go well with the meals and other drinks for nondrinkers. My grand daughter (6) loves the food. The atmosphere and dining adds a classy ambience to a...More
