Wonderful service and fantastic food. I had the lamb shank massaman which was fabulous and my partner had the cashew chicken. The service was faultless and the staff were so friendly. I'd highly recommend.

While staying at the nearby Novotel I asked for a nearby Asian restaurant (short on time before the final ABs vs Lions test) we were pointed in the direction of The Nook in New Regent Street (5mins walk). Unlike the test match, the restaurant was pure delight.
A tiny but cosy establishment which only had about 12 tables on two floors, it was like squeezing all the family into a student flat. But the food was so good, perfectly cooked with heaps of Thai flavour and the service was first rate too!
Nothing unusual on the simple menu but when it's this well cooked heaps of choice isn't missed.
The Nook is so well named - give it a try, I think you'll like it!

We walked into this tiny place without a booking and they happily accommodated us. We were served quickly and our food arrived as equally fast. We had a delicious mixed entree and a divine Chiang Mai curry. The food was jammed pack with flavour. The price was good but the service was outstanding. It was well worth it. Must try if in Christchurch, its location is on a quaint avenue.

We were having pre concert meal. Service helpful and food very tasty. Small intimate upstairs seating. We had lovely chat with Canadian couple also enjoying a meal. Good value food and wine list has very pleasant local wines. I will return. Just round corner from Isaac Theatre in New Regent St.

Good & very fast service. The entree tasting plate was excellent, different flavours & the moneybags were the lightest & most tasty we've ever eaten. The bit of satay chicken was also very good.

For mains we shared a beef salad - tasty (it had celery? husband said it worked well, I dislike celery so picked it out); & tom yum goong - great soup, very generous with the prawns.
