I hate writing a review like this but I was so disappointed. I got the spicy noodles and it was really good value for money! But when I tasted it, it made sense. I guess sometimes you do get what you pay for. It tasted...More

Sorry to hear that, it is really Hot and Spicy, as you say it makes sense to call it that. We do have plenty of other dishes on the menu that are mild, and we understand spice isn't for everyone, please feel free to ask...More

The best thai food! You get much food for a good price. I can really recommend the red curry, with chicken or with tofu. There are many vegetarian alternatives and the tofu is really good.

Just had dinner at Thai Container. They cater for gluten free which is great and the food came out very quickly. Great seating area in front of the caravan you order from. It seems the food is cooked inside a shipping container which has been...More

We ordered a handful of dishes for our family and all were very good. The food was prepared incredibly quickly and the portions were large. Very happy with the quality and size of the meal for the price and would certainly order from them again...More

We are a relocated restaurant from the city due to the earthquakes. After the Earthquakes we managed to start up again this time as a takeaway with outdoor seating and making great use of a 40ft container which we converted to a 40ft Kitchen,
Our Chefs are still serving restaurant quality food, at takeaway prices. We have a busy little spot so wait times can average between 5-15mins for your meal , txt orders are a good way to go on a wet day ... We look forward to seeing you here.

Just remember when placing feedback ..If you have had a problem let us know straight away so we can resolve it, it's hard to be given a opportunity to fix things if you don't tell us.
