I was sceptical when my husband suggested going there at first (he went last year on a work trip), however there was no need to be...

There were plenty of people there which is usually a good sign - so you should book first so you don't miss out. This restaurant has a good variety of Thai dishes. Our family had a enjoyable evening there and we were able to eat at a table outside. Our meals were lovely and were of a good size including a few vegetarian options. The service was good and they knew their dishes; and the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed. We had to wait a little however it was pretty busy and our kids were pretty hungry. Our kids (11 and 13) thought the bar people were friendly and were impressed by their throwing skills (obviously have made cocktails before) and quick service. The bottled water was somewhat pricey compared to the other beverages, particularly the beers and wine and even juices. Overall it was still good value though we didn't have (or need) heaps of extra dishes.

They do takeaways as well.

When we next go to Rarotonga - we'll be going again hoping it will be as good next time.

Had a good thai duck curry - listed as very hot but mild to my tastes. Still evry tasty and a big meal (did lunch the next day too). Served with jasmine tea. Nice alternative to the general fare of Rarotonga and price reasonable.

We had a very tasty meal at Bamboo Jacks (apparently owned by the same person as Trader Jacks, also very good). The Asian food (Malaysian, Indonesian, Thai amongst others) was very good. Honest, well priced food. Pretty good decor - not on the water but the patio area was nicely set up. Good service. Great for a crowd so you can share all the great dishes. Complimentary chinese tea, nice touch. Parking round the back (on a "busy" road with no street parking.

This was the best meal we had in Raro. The Garden restaurant makes for a pleasant atmosphere and the service was fantastic. The food was as authentic as any I've had outside of Thailand.
