Sadly we were disappointed once again with the Starlake Thai restaurant in Havelock.
Two of ordered the THAI fried rice; - one with chicken and one vegetarian with egg. The vegetarian fried rice was not Thai at all. And it was truly only rice and egg. No vegetables. Not just one little bit of vege. Not one. No THAI lemon grass or other Thai seasoning either. Only rice and egg. And lots of oil. Very bland and soul less. It certainly was not worth the 40 minute wait for our take away.
Hmmm, I guess it was slightly better than last time, when my vegetarian curry had chicken in it?!?!"#")"?

We were very pleased to find this restaurant in Havelock North. We had previously had enjoyable take-away food from there and so decided to try their restaurant. We were no disappointed.

The proprietor was very friendly and helpful and talked to us about the various dishes available. Eventually, we chose the Scallops (S7) and a beef dish (M5) plus two portions of Jasmine rice and a glass of wine each.

Each of the meals was excellent and plentiful and, we considered, at quite a reasonable cost. We would return another time if we found ourselves back in Hastings.

went to dinner ordered two soups, chicken satay and the boss ordered a crispy squid, which to be honest we were disappointed with it had been coated in batter and deep dried. It was not delivered to the table at the same time as the satay which was disappointing and when it arrived it was cold. The soup was great though and the staff were efficient and friendly.
