Met my son and his friend here as they had just arrived in town. Food decent and not too expensive but I've had better Thai food. Service ok as well. Not special

Chose to eat here on a Saturday night. It was busy, but not exceptionally. We were quickly seated at a window table and immediately brought menus and water by a waitress. However, we then waited for ages to place our order. There seemed to be only 1 waiter who was taking orders and he was also attending to the till.... More

Having dined all around in Rotorua for almost half a year now, it was quite refreshing to see a courteous group of servers. Although a little too formal at times, it was much nicer then the usual service we sometimes see at venues where servers are more worried about finishing off their conversations then serving customers. Food was tasty, we... More

The meal was OK and service was good but we found the prices on the menu inside were much higher than the menu displayed outside. It may have been the outside menu was takeaway prices but we didn't notice any reference to this at the time. If you have two prices then display both menus otherwise you feel somewhat cheated...

We ordered fried king prawns as an entree dish, with green curry with chicken and red penang curry with duck. All cost over $60 and portions were small. Everything tasted very good but there were hardly any vegetables in the duck curry and most of the duck was just skin and fat, rather than meat. Customers were also placed along... More
