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.

Out for meal with a group of women we filled three seperate tables. It would have been nice to have been seated together but the dining space wasn't spacious. Our orders were taken quickly and efficiently and arrived within a reasonable time. The meals weren't...cheap but quality was very good. Wait staff kept is supplied with water. On the minus side plates were cleared while people were still eating which involved passing plates from one end of the table to the other and over the top of a person still eating and we were warned that the restaurant was closing in ten minutes. For those paying with paywave a surcharge was added and when I questioned it and tried to have it reversed so the card could be swiped the transaction went through anyway. There was no signage advising of this practise.More

My first (& hopefully only) time posting a review of a place I've eaten, but after this experience thought I'd warn others. Food wasn't hugely flavorsome but OK. Ordered an Iced Coffee which tasted horrid with an odd sickly/soy-sauce like flavour. All three of us...dining tasted it and thought same. I returned it and said it tasted odd and soy-like, which they said 'it could be', so I suggested they try it themselves, which they declined. Anyway went to leave to find I was still charged e$8 for it, and when queried was told "If you don't like something you still pay for it". Well I can guarantee I won't be trying or paying for anything else there! Avoid...there's so many better options in Oamaru.More

Food was to die for, absolutely delicious! Friendly and welcoming customer service. Prices were a little higher than what we’re used to back home but still worth every penny!

On arrival I was advised that I would have to order and pay online.. but I was already there and just wanted to order a takeaway and pay at the counter, this was not an option… only allowed four people in the place due Covid...you see, but the place was empty as was the restaurant. I was happy to show a vaccine pass, but no, not an option.. I have really never heard of anything so silly, and never had this experience at any other takeaway or restaurant. Rules are ok if they make sense, I just walked out.More

We tried a take-away. Bring your own bag or they charge 50c for a paper carrier bag. Choose your dish from the menu - at the "published" price - then choose the meat/seafood you want in it. Chicken is the only meat they don't charge...anything up to $4.50 extra for. You get 100g or can have an additional 70g of meat (or 3 prawns) for an extra $3. Very small portion of rice - again weighed! Our chicken with cashew nuts contained exactly 9 cashew nuts. For an extra $3.50 we could have had a measured extra weight of nuts (they must have a very tiny scale!). They even tell you how many bits of potato they put in the mussaman curry! The food was OK but nothing special - and a lot of sauce. We certainly got the bare ration! Probably the stingiest and most cheeseparing place we have ever encountered! We had to wait quite a while before anyone deigned to take our order, and service was taciturn to say the least. They were quite busy (presumably with internet/phone orders) although it was only 5.30pm, so maybe we had a bad experience.More

Popped in for an early Saturday lunch. The food was exquisite and authentic. I tried one of their iced Thai teas, it was quiet sweet but complemented the heat/spices of the food perfectly.

My mother is Thai, so I tend to be pretty picky about Thai restaurants. Most Thai restaurants are guilty of weird things like putting tomato sauce in Pad Thai, using very little herbs and generally having the combination of sweet, sour and salty all wrong....This place is serving great Thai food. We ordered the Pad Thai and Chef's Special Pork Belly. The flavours of both were excellent. Lots of spring onions, coriander and Thai basil and not too salty or sweet. They also delivered for free to our AirBNB outside Weston, and food arrived exactly on time given on the website order. Highly recommended.More
