We went as a family of four and had a table outside with a wonderful view. The food was very tasty, however we left still feeling hungry. The portions were definitely on the small side. We were going to order dessert but they were taking too long to come out to us so we decided to stop and buy ice creams from the four square instead.

The food was superb and prices are not as expensive as we have expected considering the location with a great view of the sea! Service was excellent. We ordered Mojitos and was very impressed when the waiter used fresh mints which he picked from just outside the restaurant entrance! A must place to try.

We went as a family (18 members). The service was good for a big party however the meals were not.

Two family members ordered two different items from the menu, both marked with two chilli's yet the difference in heat was incredible. The first meal had almost no spice/heat yet the other meal was so hot they weren't able to eat it, it should have been marked with three chilli's. The spice was very inconsistent between the two meals.

In addition the dessert was served to most of us on saucers as it looked like they ran out of dessert plates. Not a major but it's a bit unprofessional.

We have dined at the other Thai restaurants they own and we couldn't fault them, seems this one just needs a bit of improvement.

Delicious and for the price it's amazing. Loved the outlook, loved the variety .... Although I personally think the takeaway menu is better than eat in....? Go figure!
Service was so friendly and the only thing I could have complained about was the weather. But that green curry soup took my mind off that!

What a great spot.

Very friendly, welcoming staff; genuine ambience; and superb food.

We had the Tom Yong Gung soup; chef's specials Lamb Massaman and Whole Snapper and some chocolate cake and coconut ice cream for desert. The portions were generous and the food fresh and full of flavour.

We've also been here for the $10 lunch venue and felt guilty as it's almost stealing from Red Crab. What a great deal.

Service is outstanding, friendly and humourous without sacrificing professionalism.

This is a great spot to dine on Waiheke Island.
