“Real Thai”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

I frequently visit Thailand for business and a little R&R. I can tell you that this place know how to cook Thai Food. The trick is to ask the waiting staff to make it it Thai Hot as most "Kiwi" cannot handle spicy food. Just writing this review makes me want to go there and have a quick Tom Yum Goong. Friendly Thai Staff as well.

“puff the magic dragon -”
Reviewed November 9, 2012

- keyboard renditions of classic hits, foodcourt style placemats with advertisments and pretty average thai food. Seems they're geared to churn a lot of customers through...

“Not taste like Thai food”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We were recommended to this Thai restaurant in Oneroa Village.
Restaurant located at a hill side building with good view of Oneroa beach and the sea.
A lot of regular non Asian customers visited the restaurant during our visit.
Could be their customer service was very good.
But food didn't taste like Thai food.
Honestly we have been to Thailand many times and tried many Thai food in Thailand and Malaysia. Compared to Red Crab, the others served much better food!
Tom yum was not hot nor sour.
The only dish we like was the green mussels cooked in coconut soup.
At this standard of Thai food served I shall deem that the menu was overpriced.

“Average”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

I've eaten here a couple of times, the flavours and aromas of the food are lovely but the actual taste has always been average. We've found dining in to be slightly better, their food doesn't handle the "takeaway test" very well and is usually soggy. Alright for the occasional meal though I suppose!

“Beautiful View, Beautiful Food”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

Menu choices are a nice mix, not confusing or too many choices like a lot of Thai Restaurants. The view is stunning from any table and lovely atmosphere. BYO wine. Meals are large, we didn't have an entree and could have easier shared my meal between us. They do have a small dessert menu, highly recommend the "Molten" chocolate cake but do share this, very large portion.
