Tasty meals with fast friendly service and good value. The place is big and busy for a small town at lunchtime.

My go to place for Thai in Whangarei. Best Thai restaurant on my book. Absolutely to die for food. Good portion size, prompt service and very friendly staff. There is nothing negative about this place! Only thing is they only do dinner!

Dear Chinc831 Thank you very much for your kind recommendation. However, may I respectfully correct you that we open for dinner only. In fact, we also open at lunch on Tuesday to Saturday between 11.30AM to 2.30PM. Regards Charn
