We chose Haiku for lunch as it is no 1 on tripadvisor for Thai/Asian restaurants in the CBD. It is very dark inside, which might be ok for dinner, but felt a bit depressing on a sunny day. We did not really appreciate the service...More

We were a group of 10 people. Our waiter, Jacques, was excellent. Although different kitchens prepare different dishes, everyone at the table always had at least one dish in front of them. The food was scrumptious. We will definitely be back! Highly recommended.
