Great choices of food, best in a crowd then you can share your dishes. service has always been attentive in that humble thai way. if you want it hotter say so upfront and they'll make sure those dishes are hot! puddings aren't hot on this menu but we do recommend cold beer with the food, it somehow excentuates it.

Well the food was great and value for money. The service was good despite the restaurant being choc a block. There were some rowdy students occupying a long table and even the restaurant asked it we wanted to complain about their noise. Good choice I thought for a quick Friday night drop in and catchup with friends.

Best Thai in Welly by far - we try the others, but nothing measures up. This is not the original Original - that would be in Island Bay - but owned by the same lovely chap who runs the Vivian Street number (looking for new owner). Food great, and the same, at both.
