My boyfriend and I had entrees and mains, and both were generous and we found the price worth the quantity and quality. We had Tom Kar soup and Duck roti for starters : a lot of meat in the soup, which was good, and well...More

This was my second visit here and although I wasn't too impressed by their Pad Thai I decided to try again. The prawn toast as an entree was delicious if a little big as I ordered red curry with beef medium. I should have gone...More

Had the Phad Thai for lunch here and it was good value and delicious. Also tried their Mango with sticky rice dessert which was also pretty good. Food came out pretty fast and there was good ambience.

Large restaurant with lots of tables. We had a new waitress who unfortunately was not familiar with the menu which caused a few problems. The food was lovely, large portions. Not a great atmosphere, could be better decorated but this does not affect the food.

Always good for a meal, whether lunch or dinner, eat in or take-aways. If you are used to the real thing in Thailand with Thai vegetables etc it is always difficult to replicate the flavours back in NZ but they do a pretty good job...More
