We have been to this restaurant several times and the food, service and overall experience have been amazing and faultless on every occasion. Recommend mixed starter, panang Suk Jai and noodle dishes. Asked for special dessert that was not on menu and they happily accomodated. Fried banana split was nek level. Owner and manager so accomodating. We travel 2hrs from... More

It was a very pleasant dining experience. The owner and the staff are very warm and friendly. The foods are excellent presented, and the flavors special and delicious. The decor and music of the restaurant provide a calm and enjoyable atmosphere. The restrooms are exceptionally clean. There's a cute real-sized penguin that's hard to miss. There's also a nice Thai... More

Some of the best Thai food we've had. Went back 2 nights in a row. The kids are big fans of Thai food. A hidden gem in Whangarei. Great food and great service.

We enjoyed a lovely meal at this popular Thai Restaurant in Whangarei. Staff were delightful, and the food was excellent, it was very keenly priced too. It is situated on a busy road, however plenty of parking nearby.

We came upon the Suk Jai on Saturday evening and were delighted by the service and food quality. The restaurant must be popular with the locals and visitors alike as the takeaway orders were constant and the bookings for tables heavy. We were seated quickly and our orders taken within minutes. The meals were served within minutes of the order... More

I have been several times to this restaurant and had a good meal every time. Service is good, Good variety of food , the music is pleasant and not intrusive. The restrooms are excellent and always clean. It is a busy restaurant and sometimes maybe a bit too crowded, but that shows how popular it is.

My family and I visited one Saturday evening. We had grandparents, ourselves and young children. The staff seated us and made us all happy before leaving us to order. While we were reading the menu we talked a bit about the restaurant. The family that runs the business moved up to whangarei after the Christchurch earthquakes and set the restaurant... More

We were greeted and sat instantly by a very happy man (I think he was the owner). Our order was taken quickly and our entree arrived very fast. We ordered money bags which to be fair were more full or peas and carrots than meat but still delicious. The tempura squid was smaller than the photo and more batter than... More
