Had the tom yum (good) and red curry w prawn and scallop. The food was well seasoned and prepared but like most places in NZ a bit overpriced. But the views makes it hard to complain bc it's quite stunning.

Great Thai food with a view of the bay. You can walk here from the Ferry (approx 25 minutes). Good service, although they don't split bills for groups. 15% surcharge on public holidays

After being shocked by how inflated Oneroa prices have become we ended up here and had a delicious prawn and scallop pad Thai for less than the price of an entre in a nearby eatery! We also got to sit outside with stunning sea views. We were on our way to the movies and they easily catered for us in... More

As always - it's hard to rate when Trip Advisor rating jumps from from Average to Very Good. To be fair - this Thai place exceeded our expectations as we were wary of Red Crab being the ONLY Thai (Asian?) place in Waiheke. 8 of us ordered the whole fried fish, fish fillet, green curry beef, red curry, Pad Thai,...

What a shame. We were expecting crispy fresh veggies and fresh infused flavours. Unfortunately we were served frozen scallops as part of a red curry and the veggies felt & tasted like they were a couple days old . Please l Red Crab ... up your game as Waiheke desperately needs a good Thai restaurant

We had the massuman lamb curry and the sizzling duck. Both delicious. They cost about $30 each and were some of the specials that night. Perhaps a little expensive but made ok by the fact that they were cooked perfectly. Nice pleasant service too.

Had lunch on the deck over looking Oneroa Bay. Food was delivered promptly and was well presented. It was value for money. Waiter staff were efficient and refilled my drink regularly. Would dine their again.

My husband and I were looking for somewhere overlooking Oneroa Beach for a casual lunch. The Red Crab was a great find, beautifully situated, with excellent food and service.
