The food was outstanding! My Pad Thai was superb, and my family members thoroughly enjoyed their meals too. It was a Friday night, and busy! Many takeaway orders were being filled whilst we dined in. The staff were friendly and got all our orders correct....Will definitely be back!More

Great spicy sausage, nice staff person. Cold restaurant heaters were not on middle of winter. Very average cuisine, vegetable dishes had few vegetables. Flavours were middle of the road. Lest unimpressed sad to say. Hamilton restaurants are so under par, so sad very average Thai!...Keep driving straight to Auckland!More

Went for dinner with high expectations based on other reviews but found staff to be lacking in knowledge of the menu, fish cake entree clearly frozen and rubbery, crispy pork belly main dry. No indication of BYO on website but apparently they allow. Take advantage...of it (just saying).More

Fresh, tasty takeaways were the option instead of in house dining tonight, as the restaurant was fully booked owing to Fieldays business. Good vegan and vegetarian options are available here.
