quick service having booked, nice authentic quiet background music, menu chilli rating on hot side, our green beans and broccoli just on raw ....these we left. Sauces delicious. We don't think the scallops were NZ ones, very small with small tough pieces in them and of unusual dark cream colour. But we still enjoyed our dinner.

Went for dinner with my father and my brother. Initially we didn't see the sign marking the alley where the restaurant is, so we thought we were lost. But we found it and were greeted by a team of extremely nice waitresses. The food was incredible. The dishes where huge though so sharing is an option! The Pad Thai with... More

Very yummy food and the staff were so lovely. We eat Thai a lot, and this place is a little more expensive but the dishes we had were worth it. We went there for our wedding anniversary so wanted something a little more special, and we weren't disappointed. The restaurant is down an alley way so easy to miss. Look... More

Auckland's taste sensation in a warm cosy atmosphere with great service. Whether for a romantic dinner or lunch, a catch up with friends or family or for business entertainment, we can cater for your needs. With seating capacity maxing out at around 40 to 50 (depending on seating arrangements), it is advisable to make a telephone reservation. The restaurant also offers great wines, cocktails, beers and a nice selection of teas. We also have a nice under cover outdoor area.
