Contrary to other reviews, the service was tops and the food is some of the best Thai I have ever tasted! The garlic mussels and the seafood main were to die for. Charles was great and wife loved her food too. Go tuk tuk you...More

We loved it. Food was stunning. So tasty with great service - maybe it was because we weren’t rude aucklanders. Owner was fun and it was the best Thai food . Thanks

Had what we wanted and did not disappoint. Ate al fresco so did not experience the "tired interior" part; both specials (pad thai & chicken satay) were delicious and reasonably priced. Tasted like authentic Thai to us!

Interesting decor, could do with a freshen up, good choice of craft beers on tap and Charlie the owner could be a little more friendly, but we went for the food. Charlie's wife is the chef and she knows how to cook Thai, all meal...More
