Really fantastic thai. The service was great and speedy. Everyone I dined with was very satisfied with the food. The pad thai was really good, and the curries were good as well. Reasonable prices as well.

We visit here periodically and it is entirely reliable as far as we are concerned. Lovely pad Thai spring roles and spicy salads.

Despite the name being in the Southern part of Thailand, the restaurant has all kinds of authentic Thai food across all regions of Thailand. I recommend Pla Tod Nam Tok (deep fried whole fish with Nam Tok sauce) as their signature dish. Best to order...More

Just a reminder for everyone that this restaurant never disappoints us. Penang Chicken is a must have for curry fans. Get one as soon as you can.

Just in Christchurch for one night and looking for somewhere to eat on the Papanui road close to our hotel. Not a great range of options so chose the Phuket because it looked reasonably busy. Don't eat Thai food often but really enjoyed the meal...More

Wednesday night businesss meant quickly looking for somewhere to eat. I remember coming here many years ago (way before apps were invented) and it was good then. Pleasantly surprised that it is still the case. We walked in to a busy but not crowded restaurant...More

The food was great. The tom yum soup is the one you should try. The staff at the front desk was really friendly and helpful.
