What a fantastic little place, sit down at the site and eat or takeaway your food. But the best part is the food absolutely delicious we went both days we were in Christchurch.

It’s unique location (corner-site and the former 24h medical Centre just adjacent) means that it’s always easy to get a convenient car park close by. The outside area with the benches is functional, yet has a nice little feel to it with all sorts of...More

This is a really cool, atmospheric outdoor thai cafe with outstanding food. I highly recommend it, especially for those staying at one of the Bealey Avenue hostels as it's just a short walk from there.

Staying with friends in Chch and they took us here. We ordered for 2 adults and 3 teens. Good size portions with great authentic flavours. Happy to do extra spice for those who like it hotter. Def worth visiting.

We came here for dinner the other night and had some really delicious food for very affordable prices. It was a bit chilly waiting outside, but the food came out very quickly. The cashew and tofu was especially good. We will definitely be back again.

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.
