The staff were extremely helpful and the service was great. We were looking to have a nice meal together new years eve and there weren't many Whangarei restaurants open however this one was. The staff were very welcoming and there was an atmosphere of celebrating in the new year. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

The Pimarn Thai Restaurant is a Whangarei institution. For years now the friendly staff in this restaurant have been turning out consistently good food in this always busy eatery. Open Monday to Saturday for lunch and dinner. Reservations are recommended.
