Service was good and efficient. I didn't like the trolleys constantly going past, reminded me of hospital trolleys from staff to clear food and dishes. I think this is outdated service and not a personalised service. The Thai food didn't match the new Thai food resturants that have come into Whangarei. Although I'm comparing to Suk Thai, which is 5... More

My hubby and I (along with our 2 children) celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary tonight. As soon as you enter you're greeted with a friendly smile - from the desk to your table. All the staff are well groomed; special mention that in the evenings they are dressed up ☺. Once seated you're given the menu's and left to decide... More

Nothing overly flash, just your staple thai restaurant. The big seller is the friendly staff and owners. Recommend a pineapple juice, freshly made

The staff were extremely helpful and the service was great. We were looking to have a nice meal together new years eve and there weren't many Whangarei restaurants open however this one was. The staff were very welcoming and there was an atmosphere of celebrating in the new year. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

A group of about 15 us visited the Rathbourne street restaurant. It's got good atmosphere and is clean and tidy with attentive staff. All food arrived at same time but there is no going away from the fact that the food itself is rather average. It's all rather stock standard and bland (even the spicy dishes have no depth). The...

The Pimarn Thai Restaurant is a Whangarei institution. For years now the friendly staff in this restaurant have been turning out consistently good food in this always busy eatery. Open Monday to Saturday for lunch and dinner. Reservations are recommended.
