Our family is a Thai family and we would rate this possibly the best Thai restaurant we've been to in NZ for speed of service and excellence of food. Easily the best Thai desserts we've had at a restaurant in NZ. Also, very cheap compared...More

Yummy food and fast service. Pretty reasonable prices. We ended up sharing dishes. The Tomyum fried rice was something I will try at home.

A no nonsense, clean and friendly restaurant for a relatively quick bite. Good menu choice. No wifi. But who needs that when in good company?

Sounded enticing but the food was rather bland & didn’t fit the description of Thai street food. We had the larb which we couldn’t finish & the duck soup that was lacking flavour.

Really good food and great value for money. We ordered the massaman curry and chicken pad Thai- both highly recommended. Bottles of tap water were also available. Would go again.

Regularly go here just to order the pad thai. Amazing flavour and huge portions, well worth every dollar. Wish they would come to your table and take your order rather than you having to go the counter though.

This is the classic mix of half way café style to restaurant. Check out the menu order at the counter, pay then food arrives. Food was presented and tasty and price even better. You are not paying for fine dining so don't expect service to...More
