Restaurant details
Dining options: Breakfast, After-hours
Description: We are a relocated restaurant from the city due to the earthquakes. After the Earthquakes we managed to start up again this time as a takeaway with outdoor seating and making great use of a 40ft container which we converted to a 40ft Kitchen, Our Chefs are still serving restaurant quality food, at takeaway prices. We have a busy little spot so wait times can average between 5-15mins for your meal , txt orders are a good way to go on a wet day ... We look forward to seeing you here. Just remember when placing feedback ..If you have had a problem let us know straight away so we can resolve it, it's hard to be given a opportunity to fix things if you don't tell us.

Thai Container is not /just/ the best takeaway shop in a caravan and container on the side of aroad; no - it is so much more. Rene and his team are always ready with a smile and happy to have a chat as they serve you. My personal favourite aspect is how giving they are; regular offering competitions to win a free meal on Facebook, they're easily my favourite Thai place here in Christchurch!

Oh yeah, the food's bloody amazing as well.

I decided to visit to see what all the Trip Advisor hype was all about. The young woman at the counter had zero customer service skills and was surly. When our pad thai's arrived, they were pretty average. Generous serving though, and value for money. Would rate 3 stars if it wasn't for the service.

Im so sorry to read about your experience , it is certainly not the norm, as you will read in the below 100+ reviews, i do apologise, the young girl who served you went home early on Saturday with really bad migraines, in fairness to her she is an exceptional staff member, and she committed herself to work instead of maybe having a good rest up on the day, never the less she is back on her feet, smiling away and delivering the best thai food in town, please understand it is hard for us to compete with restaurants as we are more of a takeaway, im not sure how we got put into this site that competes us with some of the best restaurants in the world, but once again, we will take your feedback and use it to make us even better, 10/514 restaurants in christchurch must mean we are doing something right, im just sorry you were the 1 customer who felt it wasn't a 5/5 experience. Thanks for helping us continue to grow and improve.

We love thai food and regularly enjoy eating at another establishment. However, we had heard great things about the Thai Container so popped in for a bit of lunch on the way home from sport. The fresh spring rolls were beautiful and the accompanying sauce had just the right amount of chilli and acidity for my taste. It was fresh and authentic.
