I have lived in Thailand for several years. Unfortunately the food here is a very poor imitation of the real thing. The service is great and very friendly which just saves it from a one star review. I am writing this review in the hope that they may realise they need to improve the standard of food. The owner is... More

We chose the restaurant based on the reviews and expected tasty food. We ordered red&green curry and were told that they were out of rice. The only other option was to have roti, which didn't really go well with the curry. Food was served quickly, however both curries were overly sweet and frothy. While paying the bill, the owner apologized... More

Expected a lot of this place based on the review. Looked forward to some fresh Thai food and was disappointed. Started with Thai chicken wings and curry puffs. Both looked like they were cooked from frozen from packets and the wings were just chicken nibbles in a BBQ sauce...the mains were not much better. I ordered a Thai Beef Salad... More

We tried this place while visiting Wairarapa (coming from Wellington region). The food was yummy, the service was outstanding, the location is convenient, the food arrived quickly and we all enjoyed it quite a bit. Actually, it was so good that we returned the other day to enjoy it once again. An excellent "value for money" restaurant.

We went to dine in but decided to get takeaway instead. No liquor license so no alcohol. Food was good. Very cramped dinning area.

Arrived with large extended family group - there was something for everyone. Prompt and responsive service and delicious food earns this place a 5/5 despite humble location. A real gem.

We happened upon this place after it was recommended by the hotel owners up the street. Nice little eat-in restaurant with good quality Thai food at a great price!

The Thai food here is amazing!!! Flavours straight out of Thailand. The first time I've had real Thai flavours in NZ that tastes like I got it in Thailand! Highly recommend! Plus, the owner was so friendly and helpful opening doors for customers and offering me prawn crackers while I waited for our takeaways. I look forward to dining in... More

All the food was good, hot (after 15min drive home) and well priced. Easy to find with plenty of parking on the road.
