After a big day trekking around mt cook we were keen for an easy takeaway option which are rare in lake tekapo. The tofu red curry was really good and good value for money but the chicken chili and basil was pretty average. Recommend but not with great expectations.

Take-away Thai dishes $113 for 6 adults. Distinct lack of meat, and only a very few fresh vegetables. Shrimp wontons a joke! Try elsewhere.

Place was packed when we arrived but we were still able to get a table. Service was pretty good considering the amount of diners in the restaurant. Food was tasty and not too expensive. There is not a lot to chose from in Tekapo and this place was better than expected despite being very busy and quite noisy. Funnily enough, the place emptied out around 8.30pm and we were one of the last to leave at 8.45pm.

My husband and I love Thai food so much. We have tried so many Thai restaurants and I have visited Thailand many times as well.

Unfortunately this food was the worst we have ever experienced. The food did not resemble Thailands fresh flavors. The beef was off or was that really beef ? It was like eating really bad Korean food. (we assume the chef is Korean. We did not try any Korean food here so Korean dishes might be good, but not Thai food) We were so disappointed and will never come back to this restaurant unless they learn how to cook Thai food or change to Korean restaurant. (We ordered, Chili and Basil stir fry with chicken, green curry with vegetables and dumpling soup (daily special). )

It would have been better to go to the supermarket next door and cook on our own!

Importantly this simple restaurant offers great value for money, with ample serves and tasty Thai food. I can't vouch for the Korean part of the menu, but we were pleased with the flavours and quantity of the Thai dishes which we selected. Service was friendly, and very prompt. The restaurant was very clean, even if the decor was basic.
