We had a party of 10 so there was a fair range of starters and mains to comment on and everyone had excellent things to say about their choice, and would happily dine there again

Very good Thai food choices in Ohakune. They could accommodate our vegetarian needs without significant issue. The staff was very friendly and we got around to chatting with them about how they are spending their holidays and how we are spending ours! Since we visited during the quiet time of the year, the restaurant was relatively empty and quiet. Though... More

The food exceeded our expectation to be honest - it was tasty and a good portion size. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. We ordered takeaways but it took quite a while to receive our food. We were told the expected wait was 35min - 40min, but our food wasn't ready until about 1 hour later, so maybe have... More

Set underneath a hotel, this little gem serves up the best highlights of SE asia. I have travelled extensively and this has been the best serving of red curry and vegetarian (tofu) pad thai I have tasted.

We dined here twice during our stay, once as a take away and once in the restaurant. The food was delicious, the chef is Thai so the food is authentic. Wish we lived closer so we could order all the time!!

The food was good, service excellence, ambience average (A little bit of work would go a long way to making it feel more welcoming). I had a classic Thai basil and chill dish which was well cooked with enough spice to notice but not too much that it overwhelmed. Good portions.

All dished were delicious and in good amount despite the fried rice was a little bit dry and unflavored. And it didn't took very long to be served. The watriess was friendly... More

One of the best Thai restaurants I've been to. The starters were mouthwatering, I had the massaman curry which was off the charts! All of the friends I dined with enjoyed their food as well. Great service and very friendly staff. I would recommend to anyone. Thanks
