Service was plesant and friendly, food was fresh fast and hot. Great sweet and sour pork, but our favourite dish Pad Thai was lacking in flavour a little bland and missing all the lovely Thai spices and herbs we love :)

The restaurant is quite small, not many tables. We had only Prawn salad and it is tasty and fresh. Food was served fast. Lovely service.

There are many restaurants in Hanmer Springs, very few that cater for dietary requirements. These guys are amazing, delicious, hot, fast, bursting with flavour, and spot on to our gluten-free, onion and garlic free request. Such a treat, went back the next night :)

This was a return visit for us - the previous visit was twelve months ago. This is a cosy little restaurant - a great sanctuary on a cold winter's night. We started with the Fish Cakes. Yum. These are good. A Pad Thai and stir fry complete the meal. Great flavours. We were a little surprised by the use of... More

So lovely to step into this small restaurant with a cosy woodburner, prompt service and good food. It is a little hard to find as it down an alley but it does have an advertising board on the pavement on the main street.

We bought takeaway from here and were very pleased with what we got even if for a takeaway it was a bit pricey. I suppose it has a captive trade so they can charge what they want. In saying that I suppose it costs them more to get ingredients into Hanmer. Would go back.

The 'big' restaurants were full, but we were welcomed here! Uncrowded, fast service and beautiful food, using Thai crockery and cutlery. Satay was to 'die for'. In fact the food was so good we went back a second night! - Very reasonably priced.
