I recommend this place for delicious food and great service. After having a bad experience early in the day going to The Waterfront Cafe this Thai restaurant was a very refreshing change. It was very beautiful looking out over the water In Manganui.

Such great food! A real gem in the Far North. This place is busy with a constant turnover of tables and takeaway diners queuing out the door. Best to book. You won't be disappointed
