“Awesome Thai food”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Came here for dinner after reading good reviews, we were certainly not disappointed. Food was awesome and service excellent, also thoughtfully was excellent value. Starter selection for two was great, beautiful fresh flavour explosions. I had the Blue Elephant Ribs and my wife had Pad Thai for mains, both were awesome. All in all a wonderful meal and heartily recommended.

“An excellent restaurant - thoroughly charming”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

We had dinner here on our last night in Auckland. The staff were very friendly and attentive, the food and wine was delicious and the décor and atmosphere beautiful, intimate and cosy. Just thinking back to our meal makes my mouth water and I wonder if I should look at moving to Auckland... perhaps that's going a little far but my partner and I both agreed afterwards that we couldn't think of a single thing to fault in our experience at this charming restaurant. It was also excellent value for the quality of food served. Simply fantastic.

“Small and perfectly formed!”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

Believe every good review you read about this place. Outstanding ambiance, service and food. To see the sparkle in the owners eyes as she discussed "her baby" with us was a treat- we will make it a must visit each time in Auckland
