Had lunch on the deck over looking Oneroa Bay. Food was delivered promptly and was well presented. It was value for money. Waiter staff were efficient and refilled my drink regularly. Would dine their again.

My husband and I were looking for somewhere overlooking Oneroa Beach for a casual lunch. The Red Crab was a great find, beautifully situated, with excellent food and service.

Dropped in for lunch after a wine tour as there is a fab view at this restaurant and the lunch options have some great value. The menu is typical thai and will suit most people with friend quick service this was great value lunch find while on waiheke

It is real Thai food there, well chosen wine list, and the view of Oneroa Bay is charming from there.

The Red Crab is both an "everyday" restaurant and can also be a bit special if you want it to. They have a nice menu and have both vegetarian options and will do veggie versions of some of their meat dishes, e.g. Mussuman Lamb with veggies instead of Lamb is very yummy. Have been here many times and always enjoy... More

I enjoy Thai cuisine a lot but at this particular restaurant.......well.........i don't think I'll return simply because the service was not great even though there was only 3 tables during lunch. The food was just ok as I've had better Thai food elsewhere in Auckland which are a lot better.

This is a chain thai restaurant so not really authentic, I found the food average with an awful lot of sugar

My wife and I had a nice dinner. Good Thai food--nothing spectacular. We shared the chicken satay with peanut sauce--it was ok. For the main we had the red curry prawns and scallops--that was very good. We had a veggie dish with that--it was ok. Service was ok--a bit slow in the beginning.
