My husband and I love Thai food and have struggled to find anything in Auckland that comes close to matching our former favourite in Devonport, which shut down last year. Tonight we found a new favourite, which we will now try to visit at least once a fortnight. Everything about this place is a delight...very friendly, attentive and professional service, superb food without the excessive sweetness and richness that is often found in NZ Thai food and spoils the purity and freshness of the ingredients. Our party of four chose four entrees and four mains to share. The fish cakes were outstanding - extremely moist and bursting with Kaffir lime flavour...also great were the very light and crisp spring rolls, blanketed prawns and crispy squid. The dipping sauces were not the usual sweet chilli sauce that can overwhelm the clean flavours, but rather more subtle, and the salad accompaniments very fresh. For the mains, we enjoyed a very nicely balanced red curry of duck, lemongrass chicken which was very light and flavourful, a magnificently decadent yet very delicate prawn penang, and lovely drunken noodles with pork. Yay for a great central city Auckland Thai restaurant!
