Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Great food and quick service. The entries were really nice and the 6 item samples were awesome. We had the chicken and beef sizzlers that came out steaming. Will definitely be going back. Great ambience especially if you can get a window table.

For lunch we had a panang curry and a red curry, both with tofu. We have had many thai meals in many cities around the world and these were among the best; and they were beautifully presented as well.

We were promptly shown to our table and given menus, we chose spring rolls to share and ordered a bottle of wine. After about 30 minutes I asked where our starter was, after an apology they arrived within a couple of minutes. We then had...a further long wait for our main meals to arrive and had now finished our wine. We noticed we were not the only ones waiting a long time, another couple gave up and left without eating. Finally after complaining to our waitress our food arrived together with 2 complementary glasses of wine. We both enjoyed our meals just a shame we had to keep asking where it was.More

Three friends and I had a gorgeous birthday celebration lunch on Saturday. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Waitress Gazal went out of her way to accommodate our requests, even for a special dietary requirement. She brought the cake on cue and made us feel very welcome....It's been my go to restaurant for a while now.More

Good friendly service and decent food. Nearby table had a hot plate dish and the chilli oil got in the air so the entire restaurant coughed for a little - caution if you have respiratory problems as the air circulation is a bit restricted however...there is outdoor seating. Will come back, nice central location, friendly service and good meals for decent price.More

On our last night in Tauranga, we decided to have some Thai food.Such a warm welcome by the staff, we were given a window table. Food was very good, and the service excellent. Love the traditional Thai decor...it felt warm and inviting. Wine was very...good as we drank a New Zealand Pino Grigio. Dont like NZ Savi Blanc (sorry..it is just me) however all there other wines are fabulous. Restaurant looks large however still has a very intimate feel. Easy access and you can eat outside as well. Not far from the water in the area where there is an abundance of restaurant choices.More
