Very busy even for a weekday night. Fantastic Thai food so well worth the wait. Had a selection of entree and mains and all good.

Service with a smile, great food, fresh, cheap, all the good things. Can't ask for anything more and great to have a restaurant of this quality open at nights in Island Bay

We have been here on several occasions now both as a family and for parties. We have always had the best service and great food. The kids love the money bags and we enjoy many dishes here too. Highly recommended. Probably the best Thai in Wellington.

We went with old friends without the kids.
Had a fantastic meal.
We had all the starters between us which were excellent.
satay, money bags, ribs, curry puffs, spring rolls.
each of us had a different main and we shared.
bring your own wine, so went over the road to New World and bought a six pack of beer and a bottle of white wine.
easy atmosphere service laid back but attentive.
great value for money will definitely go back again perhaps with movies at the Empire down the road.

Had a good quick dinner last night. The food came quickly when we said we were in a hurry and it was all quite good. My favorite was the chiil fish fillets but the red curry was awesome too. This place is family run and probably a but understaffed on a busy night but it is BYO (very old school!) - you CANT actually buy booze here but corkage is only 4 bucks. This is good thai if you are in the area - although I wouldnt make a special trip from town to go there.
