We stopped there for lunch, because we couldn't resist the special offer: $12 per dish (instead of over $20). The food was really tasty and of good quality and the portions were quite big. We added Thai spring rolls for $2 each which were awesome!. The service was good and quick, the staff friendly. I definitely recommend it.

I went for Chicken with cashew nuts with coconut rice. My other half went for Chicken massamun curry again with coconut rice. Both of us absolutely loved our meals. Service was fantastic, very happy staff working here. Would definitely go again :)

We really enjoyed the Thai food, and wonderful service. The portions were small, and the price was on the higher end for the size of dishes. Nice find, will go back

This restaurant had great food but it was the service we received from the staff that really impressed me. We actually went here twice, once for takeaway. When we returned to pick up the order the staff member saw us coming and walked out to us with the food. The service was just as good when we ate in.

It is terribly understaffed.One waiter for 10-12 tables. No one to seat us at a table when we arrived. We had to pick our table. We had to call the waiter to take our order. After 30 minutes when we saw that people that came after we arrived had been served, we called the waiter and asked about our order.... More

Excellent food. The waiting staff is very friendly and they make you feel very welcome. It is a cosy atmosphere, on a cool spring day, they had the fireplace up and running. Big portions and good value for money food. Try the sweet and sour stir fry or the ginger chicken one.

Starving after long travelling we found this restaurant in this small town, a bit late in the evening. Lucky for us this restaurant was still open at 9 pm. Maybe it is not the best Thai Food in NZ, but definitely we enjoyed and satisfied with the meals. We ordered Nam Tok, beef yellow curry, Tom Yum, cashew nut stir... More

Two pad Thais - one chicken one pork and both lacked signature ingredients. So while tasty they left us feeling very short changed . 4 small bits of chicken and 6 pieces of pork were quite disappointing.
