I had satay sticks to start followed by a pineapple curry with pork. I love Thai food at any time but this was the best I have ever had. To finish we enjoyed deep fried banana in pastry. Others in our group had green chicken curry and traditional pad Thai. All meals were delicious.

After a movie we popped in for a curry and were pleasantly surprised to find good service - as soon as we walked in we were greeted and seated. Waitress popped back with menu and drinks list giving us just the right amount of time to decide on our choice of satay chicken dish. Our meals arrived soon after and... More

We had a family meal after doing the Able Tasman coast track. It was the place we choose for a celebratory meal. Lovely meal and good service. Was pleased we went there.

Visited using a $39 (2 course for 2 people voucher). Food was great. The quantity was such the our doggy bag gave us enough food for dinner in our motel on the following night. Also BYO with a minimal corkage charge. Well worth a visit especially if you can get some sort of discount deal.

We went here for lunch. The price was excellent $12 for a large serve which was more than enough. We asked for Thai style and it tasted great. It is value for money. Clean, great staff, fast and yum

Not a bad Thai restaurant pretty much in the centre of Nelson, The food came pretty fast and they had a good wine selection at reasonable price. Not strictly authentic Thai but pretty good for the price, Needed a little more spice.

Would of rated lower if I could. Waited 1 hour before we got our food, then got our entree another 15 minutes later. We weren't given water or cutlery till after our food had been served. Food was average for price, but not great. The woman who served us was rude. We also had a booking and didn't get seated... More
