We had the massuman lamb curry and the sizzling duck. Both delicious. They cost about $30 each and were some of the specials that night. Perhaps a little expensive but made ok by the fact that they were cooked perfectly. Nice pleasant service too.

It is real Thai food there, well chosen wine list, and the view of Oneroa Bay is charming from there.

The Red Crab is both an "everyday" restaurant and can also be a bit special if you want it to. They have a nice menu and have both vegetarian options and will do veggie versions of some of their meat dishes, e.g. Mussuman Lamb with...More
