The telephone ordering worked well, my order was ready 20 minutes afterwards with no hassle. Pork ribs (starter) were good without being spectacular, served with a little chopped salad.

We were all tired and had been eating fast food for a couple of days so were craving vegetables. Didn't want to sit and "behave" in a restaurant, so we got takeaways. We didn't think we were very hungry, but we scoffed the lot because it was delicious.

Amazingly tasty Thai food. Penang w/ coconut rice and special peanut satay noodles were delicious. To top it off the staff are really friendly and made us feel like old friends. Can't recommend this enough for a great meal in Kaikoura.
