“Be prepared to wait if you haven't booked”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

There is so much to choose from whether it be lunch or dinner. You won't come away hungry. Absolutely delicous food, Authentic dress by owner and waitresses. Clean, tidy. Sit down or takeaway. Great value;

“dissapointed”
Reviewed August 16, 2013 via mobile

Been wanting to come here after reading the good reviews & cause its always busy when we drove pass during our short visit in motueka a few months ago, so we thought wow this place must be great!! so one night we came a bit early before 7 pm to beat the busy dinner rush, they already have 3 tables of customers & there were 4 waitress walking around & another lady behind the counter. sadly i was ignored for quite awhile when i was waiting at the door to be seated, finally they sat me at the table by the door, not exactly what i wanted cause its cold & i can see they have other tables for two available, but i didnt make a fuss. I told them my husband is still parking the car but i can order for him, when they gave me the menu. Unfortunately it took them forever to come back to us to take our order, they prefer to greet & sit other customers & answer the phone for takeaways. But strangely after we finally ordered if only took them 5 minutes to bring out our foods to our table!! as we suspected the food wasnt fresh & certainly not prepared to order, my pad thai was still too watery cause not drained properly (they just want to do it fast fast fast) there were hardly any peanut sauce in it & the color was just wrong! It looks like the sauce came from a package! My husband's curry was still okay though its quite bland, lack of thai sauce kick. and yes it took them ages to come to us (again) & ask about our food & when i told them the problem, unfortunately the staff hasnt been properly trained to handle complains, she kept insisting that thats the way a proper authentic pad thai supposed to be. Yeah its good if you proud of the food & place where u work but not finding the problem & try to solve it is a different thing. She never ask whats bothering me & offer sollution just asked me if i want to take it away in the end. Very very dissapoiting!! we still paid everything full price & just decided that we are not going to come here anymore & definitely will not recommed this place to everybody especially our friends & family. Awful food, bad service

Great menu, very friendly staff, good value and generally would highly recommend this place for takeaway. Never dined in, but would imagine it would be great!
Cheers!

“Delicious”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

Have been here several times, and enjoyed each meal.
They can also cater for large groups,
Service is good, but meals can be a little slow at times, but are reasonably priced.
However, they are worth the wait.
