We enjoyed the food and service at this lovely little Restaurant. The entries were scrumptious and the serving portions ample. It wasn't busy. Tables were a little close together, but we had space to ourselves.

What they lack in decor they make up for in good food and smiles. It was a pleasure going here for our dose of Thai, and with so many to choose from it was above average. Recommend!

The place was packed! Great service and fun indoor/ outdoor dining experience. Food a little mild for my taste.

Had dinner with a friend. Easy to get a table, reservation is not required. The range of dishes on the menu is quite typical for NZ. Dishes were tasty. Price appropriate

YUMM We both totally... More
