Love this restaurant tucked away. It is spacious and quiet, so eating there is peaceful and it is easy to hear other people speak. The service is always friendly and well done, and the food is the best Thai food around by far. Always beautiful and authentic.

Meals have a depth of flavor not normally found in NZ Thai restaurants. Very generous in size and tasty. Service is attentive without being overpowering. Have been back on two further occasions and have found to be very consistent'

Great Thai food. Very good quality. One of our favorite places to eat on the Hibiscus Coast. Glad to have found this place.

Excellent. Hard to see how it could be improved. Delicious food, well presented at reasonable prices. Suitable for intimate dining as well as groups. The coffee was very good. A tucked away gem well worth finding. Good service - what more could you ask for?

We love this restaurant, we usually visit it on a Sunday and Mothers especially love it. People Auckland wide should come and try it. The service is fantastic and the food is even better.

But lately has been getting a bit pricey for me. Food is always excellent though and does do a takeaway service.

Owner always makes us feel welcome, takes time out for a chat. When we purchase take away we enjoy a drink while it is being prepared. Service is prompt whether we eat in or do take away
