By chance I went to this restaurant and it has really authentic Thai food. For starters we had the Tom Yum soup which we asked for very hot and thats exactly what we got lovely and hot. For mains we got the rice with sweet and sour pork again we asked for it hot and again thats what we got. As we love really spicy food we were impressed as most restaurants do not like to serve us hot food. This is well worth a visit as it small and intimate but enough room between tables. The staff were very friendly and polite. We will definitely go there again

We went on a Monday night with a voucher, the seated area is small, but you dont feel cramped. The service was better than expected given other reviews, at all times the staff were friendly and polite, and our wait time was acceptable. The food was tasty, my crab cake entree was very nice and the dipping sauce was exceptional. My partner had chicken skewers which were also tasty. Our mains one of duck and the other lamb also delivered on flavour. Would gladly return again.

A great addition to Ellerslie. The food tastes good and slightly different from most Thai food I get here in Auckland. This is a good thing. The flavours seem a bit more intense not relying on chili heat only to get a flavour across.

We have eaten here a few times and will be back.

Service can be a little hit and miss, but it is friendly. The prices are very reasonable.
