This is a popular Thai restaurant in Christchurch which was crowded with mostly locals and few tourists. The restaurant has a lovely garden setting for outside dining. The menu was extensive and the dishes we tried were the best Thai food we experience in New Zealand. The waiters were friendly provided good service despite the full house. It is set off the road slightly, so it is important not to confuse it with another Thai restaurant that is nearby on the street. Reservations are suggested.

We came in for a dinner with family and friends and the setting is lovely, great garden area, and the larger rooms are very kitsch and fun. Food on the other hand, not so great. I was expecting to be able to choose an option which included tofu, as, being a vegetarian, this would be the expected protein source of a meal. No such luck. While there was a good number of options for vegetarians, there was not a single dish including tofu. Got to say, this was disappointing. I asked the waiter what he recommended on the vegetarian menu, and just went with that. Bit ho-hum to be honest. Wouldn’t go back.

If you want great food with a side order of horrendous service and a desert order of feeling like excrement on a shoe, this is the place to go. From ringing up to place an order to leaving with our food, we were made feel lower than a snake with piles. But for the fact I was in company I would have walked out. Never again am I spending my hard earned cash there to be treated so appallingly. The food is good, but certainly not that good to warrant that shocking service

Although we felt the service could be improved on,especially to have staff speak clearer English, the food was impeccable, and a nice atmosphere. Great value for money and would definitely dine there again.

We stopped by for a light dinner, attracted by the pleasant courtyard, but were greeted by a smoke-filled setting. Only notice from someone who appeared to be the owner got us any attention at all. While the food was good, with plentiful servings, the service was awful. Every step of the meal was neglectful, from ordering to getting the bill. Plates we did not order were delivered then whisked away by another waiter, dishes we had nearly yet touched were removed in the process. I do not recommend the place.
