Red Crab is a good quality Thai restaurant, with views and reasonable value. The helpings are generous and we were quite full after 2 starters, 2 mains and 2 rice (although we needed the rice for our tasty red curry).

Great views of the Bay and fantastic food. So glad we popped in for dinner. We shared the grilled scallop appetizer and the Pad Thai and Creamy Red Curry Prawns. Everything was delicious! I would love to come back.

The girls and I grabbed a quick lunch here. We arrived right at the end of their lunch special and the staff were very helpful to fit us in so we could take advantage of their special price. They could easily have said no. I had the Pad Thai which was very tasty, although not as authentic as others I... More

Dinner was good here. Mixed platter for entee was generally good - the deep fried portions were very good. Prawns and scallops with verges and sauce for main were tasty, as was the twice cooked duck - delicious! Service was friendly and polite. Non-alcoholic cocktails were very tasty and refreshing!

Tasty Thai in a central location at Oneroa village. Yummy vegetarian options. We also had a take away later on in the week which was good too and ready in 15 minutes from when we ordered.

Five of us went for dinner without a reservation. It was no problem to fit us in although you could see they were very busy. The food came out quickly, the service was polite and efficient. The food was just perfect. We all really enjoyed our meal.
