I have been twice within a week now and both times I found the service and the meal excellent. The first time was a family meal and the second was with a foreign guest. The guest stated that the view of the harbor was superb, and the meal was delicious.

Absolutely love coming here! It is one of my favourite restaurants in Hawkes Bay, great and quick service and the food has a lot of flavour! We have not had a bad meal here yet!

Visited twice and enjoyed both times. Very tasty meals, nice atmosphere and views over to the harbour. Take away food was also available.

This was our first time at this restaurant where we went with another couple. The starters were really good and there were large enough to share. The mains were again of a very good sized and extreamly well cooked. There was a very good selection of dishes to choose from. There was a good selection of drinks. The staff were... More

We ordered authentic Thai dishes starting with the mixed entree followed by the penang curry. The food was cooked to perfection, equal to and if not better than some of the best Thai restaurants we have sampled (we have eaten in many both in Aust and Thailand). We asked to be seated outside as it was a balmy night and... More

2nd visit within a two week visit really says it all! Excellent food; fresh crisp taste. Only small negative was that the meals all came out as they were cooked - but it did mean that they were all hot! Would pass on the recommendations that we were given!

Stopped for coffee which I have to say was the worst coffee I have had in a while it was really weak and tasteless hence to say we left it behind Don't know what the food is like but not keen to try.

The previous 5 star reviews say it all. We had the deep fried prawns and the karee puffs for entree. The prawns were perfectly cooked: battered, soft and succulent. The puffs had a very light pastry with a subtle spicy flavour. For mains I had the Black Night. My husband had the beef salad with carrots. The Black Night is... More

Had dinner here on Valentines Day. We had reserved a table and were pleased we did because it was very busy. As it was a warm night the folding doors were open with a welcomed breeze coming through. The restaurant has a good vibe and is well decorated. The wait staff were pleasant and efficient and we didn't have to... More
