Very different to Thai box. Forgot to ask for spicy and unfortunately wasn't prompted and therefore no spice. Spicy pork rice wasn't fluffy, pork was minimal and chewy. Lots of varity of vegetables a plus.

We ordered some fish cakes which were dry and extremely small and not nice. The other dish we ordered was a chicken vegetable noodle dish which was yummy.

Yum!!!!!The very best Rice Paper Rolls I have tasted and they simply burst with a delicious mixture of herbs and salad and the prawns or chicken that you choose. The dipping sauce is superb and this is such a nutricious lunch at $8.50 or $9.50....More

Ordered: Pad thai noodle and Tom yam goong Reviews: Both items were great! Flavorful too! And definitely cheaper then the usual price outside.

What a fantastic little place, sit down at the site and eat or takeaway your food. But the best part is the food absolutely delicious we went both days we were in Christchurch.

It’s unique location (corner-site and the former 24h medical Centre just adjacent) means that it’s always easy to get a convenient car park close by. The outside area with the benches is functional, yet has a nice little feel to it with all sorts of...More

This is a really cool, atmospheric outdoor thai cafe with outstanding food. I highly recommend it, especially for those staying at one of the Bealey Avenue hostels as it's just a short walk from there.

Staying with friends in Chch and they took us here. We ordered for 2 adults and 3 teens. Good size portions with great authentic flavours. Happy to do extra spice for those who like it hotter. Def worth visiting.

We are a relocated restaurant from the city due to the earthquakes. After the Earthquakes we managed to start up again this time as a takeaway with outdoor seating and making great use of a 40ft container which we converted to a 40ft Kitchen,
Our Chefs are still serving restaurant quality food, at takeaway prices. We have a busy little spot so wait times can average between 5-15mins for your meal , txt orders are a good way to go on a wet day ... We look forward to seeing you here.

Just remember when placing feedback ..If you have had a problem let us know straight away so we can resolve it, it's hard to be given a opportunity to fix things if you don't tell us.
