Had the pleasure of travelling to Whangarei for work and this was the closest Thai restaurant to where I was staying. Soon as we entered we were greeted promptly and guided to our seating area. Our server was polite and knowledgable about the food. Ordered panang chicken curry and a duck dish. Food was prepared within a good time frame,... More

One of the ladies suggested having dinner before the show. The restaurant was quite busy for a Wednesday night. The service was okay. My entrée wasn't as tasty as I thought it could be as the chicken satay was a slightly overcooked and the peanut sauce needed more salt. My Pad Thai was tastier but again lacked the depth of...

We have been here a few times over the years and the service and the food are consistent. The food is good here but not quite great. However this is a good place to have an occasional meal.

Service was good and efficient. I didn't like the trolleys constantly going past, reminded me of hospital trolleys from staff to clear food and dishes. I think this is outdated service and not a personalised service. The Thai food didn't match the new Thai food resturants that have come into Whangarei. Although I'm comparing to Suk Thai, which is 5... More

My hubby and I (along with our 2 children) celebrated our 13th wedding anniversary tonight. As soon as you enter you're greeted with a friendly smile - from the desk to your table. All the staff are well groomed; special mention that in the evenings they are dressed up ☺. Once seated you're given the menu's and left to decide... More

Nothing overly flash, just your staple thai restaurant. The big seller is the friendly staff and owners. Recommend a pineapple juice, freshly made

The staff were extremely helpful and the service was great. We were looking to have a nice meal together new years eve and there weren't many Whangarei restaurants open however this one was. The staff were very welcoming and there was an atmosphere of celebrating in the new year. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
