Read recent reviews and swung by on a chilly Christchurch evening. Swift service and freshly cooked, absolutely delicious genuine Thai fare, better than many restaurants we have experienced in major Western cities. Varied ingredients married spice and taste to perfection, large portions and seating outside...More

Great food as always. Parking can be an issue at peak times but the food is worth it. Friendly staff and can phone order to pick up. Hopefully they stick around. Always busy which is a good sign. Thanks

My partner and I had thai container the other day and I must say it is the best thai I have experienced in Christchurch. Super affordable, full of flavour (and spice) and definitely value for money. Very quick service and very tasty. Overall 100% impressed!!

We order from the Thai Container quite often and are always satisfied with our meal, whilst not experiencing that stuffed greasy feeling you often get after eating from most fast food restaurants. The only downer was the fact that every time we order from them...More

We are a relocated restaurant from the city due to the earthquakes. After the Earthquakes we managed to start up again this time as a takeaway with outdoor seating and making great use of a 40ft container which we converted to a 40ft Kitchen, Our Chefs are still serving restaurant quality food, at takeaway prices. We have a busy little spot so wait times can average between 5-15mins for your meal , txt orders are a good way to go on a wet day ... We look forward to seeing you here. Just remember when placing feedback ..If you have had a problem let us know straight away so we can resolve it, it's hard to be given a opportunity to fix things if you don't tell us.
