Guy who greets you (Charlie?) gives the impression customers just get in his way. He constantly complains and everything is a big deal. We ordered for 5 by phone and were told it would be ready in 45 minutes. After one hour we found he...More

We were surprised to find a Thai restaurant in Russell, so we decided to give it a go. We were not disappointed. The food is good and so was the service.

We visited this restaurant on a very wet evening to get some exciting Thai food, which we love. Not a lot of good things to say about the place. I had a Thai red pork curry and my wife had a Thai green chicken curry....More

The gentleman kiwi (or English?) chap who seems to run the place appears to have an attitude that customers are an inconvenience. I think he could do with a few lessons in hsopitality and customer service. The food was OK / average and was served...More
