We ordered money bags which to be fair were more full or peas and carrots than meat but still delicious. The tempura squid was smaller than the photo and more batter than... More

Visit here often. Service is prompt and attentive (but not overly) and food is invariably delicious. Amazing value for both food and drinks. There's also a gorgeous penguin at the door as a happy bonus.

We had the best ThAi food ever there, and the best meal in New Zealand. The food was delicious. The service was outstanding as well, fast and polite, you feel undevided attention. Everything was perfect. The restaurant was always busy, with lots of people coming for takeouts as well. Definitely recommend.
