We ordered beef fried rice and spring roll which cost a grand total of 25nzd. Portion isn't big so it's definitely Overpriced even by HK standards. Fried rice is good but spring roll is pathetic.

Take-away Thai dishes $113 for 6 adults. Distinct lack of meat, and only a very few fresh vegetables. Shrimp wontons a joke! Try elsewhere.
