We went the first time and got a nice table at the window with views to the sea. The food was better than we expected. The service in the beginning a little slow. All in all we didn't regret our choice

Nice atmosphere and overlooking the bay. We had main size portions of tom yam soup which came with rice. Delicious though a tad overpriced for what it was. Service was polite and attentive.

Rice came with the dishes so no need to order extra. Curry not... More

Hi Naz L Thank you for your review and we apologise for any wait you may have had. Not being a fast food restaurant, everything is cooked to order from scratch and some things take longer than others.

I visited this restaurant after another restaurant in Paihia was so disappointing that I had to send my whole meal back and leave that restaurant hungry. When I went here, the restaurant was full, but instead of sending me away, they suggested getting a meal as a takeaway. Ashley (sorry if I spelled your name wrong!) was very nice and... More

We were hoping for excellent Thai food here but what we ordered was mediocre. Pricey as well..maybe lunch is better.

We popped in and even though very busy found us a table. Obviously busy but service still good. Food very tasty and all servers were attentive. Manager was lovely - a real asset to the restaurant - would definitely come again!

Thai influenced menu but felt did not quite hit the authentic mark. Can choose heat preference, asked for "hot" for both Tom Yum soup and Massamam curry, neither came with any 'spice' heat. Food was OK but... Service fast but not too aware. Price average. Value OK.

Despite many empty tables and several available staff, we were blatantly ignored as we walked through the door. Staff avoided eye contact as we waited at the entrance and when approached, they simply diverted us to another member of staff. After 15 minutes we were finally seated (despite empty tables being available upon our arrival). The table wasn't set and... More
