The food is excellent both for vegetarians and meat lovers. Their spring rolls are the best ones I have ever had. Great and efficient service, delicious food and an amazing view of the ocean: I think it's an awesome restaurant.

Very good Thai food and efficient, friendly service. The lunch menu was good value and we were lucky to have a table with a great ocean view. Definitely recommended.

We had a quick lunch here before we caught the ferry to Auckland. The food was delivered quickly and was fresh and delicious. The restaurant has a nice view of the water. It is a great value, especially considering the area.
