I was not sure which meat to have with my curry. The young woman behind the counter recommended fish. She was right it was perfect. Lovely to have some good advice when not sure. The food was top class.

We were very pleased to find this restaurant in Akaroa. We have access to many Thai restaurants at home in the San Francisco Bay area in California, but this restaurant beats them all! Really good flavors and huge portions. Recommended!
