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.

Food is consistently good and fresh ingredients always used. Wine and beverage list is big enough and prices are exceptional value for money. Staff are friendly and restaurant is clean and welcoming

Service, food - Thuka soup and vegetarian green curry - were just perfect. Simple but so good. Just what I wanted after 2 dans spent in the rainy mountains

Menu is terrific and food is fabulous for eat in or take away. Just be prepared that if you want medium or hot - you will get it! They are enthusiastic with their "heat".

We have been there several times before and had positive experiences. However, last night was awful. When we arrived, there was only one table finishing their meal. The waiter came to the table (of four) in a reasonable time to take our order, but then took half an hour to bring the first meal. Ten minutes later, the next meal was served, followed by another ten minutes when another came from the kitchen, and then 9 minutes later the fourth person go t their meal. All over, it took over an hour from taking the order to have the full meal served. The last two meals looked thrown together (as we had complained). This was far from the quality we have had before and won't be returning until we read positive reviews. When the waiter was asked where the meals were, and explained how we thought the service was disrespectful bringing the meals at different times, it didn't seem to worry them at all. Not going back.

The last couple of times we've had dinner here it has been very disappointing. I think perhaps it has changed hands as all the staff are different. We found the beef was very chewy, the chicken had bits of gristle, the noodles were oily and even the curry puff starter was bland a flavourless. Such a shame as it used to be so good.

Had takeaway food Crispy pork and a prawn curry. This was usually good quality and decent amounts of meat and prawns, but lately they must have decided to reduce the quantities of meats in their dishes. Won't go back again

i had no expectations going in, but was happy to see them open on a Wed when the Vietnamese place, the curry place and most other asian places were inexplicably closed. Happy to have a Thai beer and see other choices, sorry no Thai iced coffee or tea though. But our appetizers really hit the spot - unusual and clearly homemade bbq pork spring rolls were different, as were the lovely meaty steamed rice paper rolls - really enjoyed those. The decor was attractive and the place was very well kept and tidy, with a dash of Thai style - more care given than the usual place with mostly bare walls, and some chairs and tables. Service was fine, although I am pretty good at giving a drink and appetizers order right off the bat, to get things going in the kitchen. Lunch mains were a coconut creme Panang Curry and Crispy Pork Thai Basil stir fry - both were really good, and the latter was generous enough to warrent a take out container for what couldn't be eaten. Nice touch - they dont charge for rice with a main dish (which I think every place should do frankly.) Some of the better Thai we've had in the area; looking forward to going back and also ordering take out from them.

Where was the food? What were the chefs doing? There were three tables occupied; one table finally got food. When we asked after half an hour when we would be served we were told another half hour. I'm sorry, but when there are only 10 other diners we expect better service. We left and went elsewhere so can't comment on quality of food.

Good has dropped from a 5 to a 3. Not sure what has happened but it appears that may have changed chef. Quality of food has dropped. Nice place to go and good customer service but struggle to go back again if I don't hear of important

One of the best Thai restaurants in Hawke's Bay. The food was so lovely and the portion was very generous. Very affordable for take-away meals too.

Lovely food and service. They all know what are they doing. The chef is the owner as well, so he would make sure meals are cooked perfectly. This restaurant serves authentic Thai food since they are a Thai family. You can order how hot you like for your meals, so that they can adjust the level of spiciness.
