By far one of the jewels of Picton. In 4 years living in Picton not once we had a bad meal here. Great for takeaway food, great prices and very decent serves of food. This is by far one of the best kitchens around the...More

The restaurant is located about 300 meters from the marina shore on High Street. The cooks appear to be Thai, and the food is cooked as it would be in Thailand and China. (I've lived both places.) Dine in or take out is available. Reasonable...More

Therefore the fact that it is a house. . . literally does not help. We have eaten here a few times and this is BLAND. Made for NZ tastes. Like how Chinese was made for British tastes in the 80's (in small villages).

Sorry, but don't rate this restaurant at all. Very disappointed, worst Thai we have ever had. Table was sticky and not very clean.

Had dinner after reading reviews. The curry was good. (Green and red) and the pad Thai was not bad. The service could have been better and they weren't helpful at all in differentiating the curry but all and all the food was good.
