My friend e-mailed to book a table & got no response so we just got takeaways as usual. The chef must have changed because we did not enjoy our starters this time. The spring rolls were bland and doughy, curry puffs oily. Breaded prawns were nice but expensive at six for $10. The dipping sauce was not nice at all... More

Also, this is one of the few BYO restaurants left in this region. This makes them doubly popular!Their service is impeachable and their staff are absolutley immaculate

Delicious food, nice atmosphere, friendly and efficient service. It was Saturday night, so quite busy but the flow of service was maintained very well. We all enjoyed our meals, and will definitely come back again when in Hastings.

Great food, we particularly like the dim sum, ginger chicken and green curry. The staff are genuine and lovely people. Anyone who says otherwise is probably either blatantly lying or has a hidden agenda.

This little Thai restaurant and takeaway is very good. I phone ordered a Seafood Pad Thai and Spring Rolls to pick up and takeaway. They were delicious. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a non spicy dish and is trying Thai food for the first time. The hospitality I received from the waitress was well presented and polite.... More

Food was tasty and service was good. Didn't have to wait long to be served and the food came quickly. Took our own wine so the bill was very reasonable. Restaurant was very quite but so was the rest of Hastings.
