After a big day trekking around mt cook we were keen for an easy takeaway option which are rare in lake tekapo. The tofu red curry was really good and good value for money but the chicken chili and basil was pretty average. Recommend but...More

Take-away Thai dishes $113 for 6 adults. Distinct lack of meat, and only a very few fresh vegetables. Shrimp wontons a joke! Try elsewhere.

Super coconut creamy, not the flavour I've experienced as a penang at all... Plus paid almost $20 for a single serve main takeaway dish. Ok if you're expecting a (dairy free) cream based sauce with not much else to it. Pretty light on the fillings,...More
