Our team came there to have lunch since we were really hungry. This restaurant has the worst customer service ever. They treated our team who were really tired like untouchables. Don't judge a book by its cover. I think all these reviews on Google are...paid ones. We didn't even had food, we just left because we had some self-respect. If there was a zero review star, I would have definitely gone for that. We really love food and had been to different awesome restaurants in New Zealand and I should say these people are the worst. If anyone intend to go there, make sure you were your Louis Vuitton suit, Gucci Shoes, and Chanel bag .Otherwise these restaurant staffs are not going to let you in.More

Having had our booking cancelled at the last minute elsewhere, myself and a bunch of ladies tried Red Crab. The service was very attentive, I love it when they fill your water regularly and were very accommodating when we asked to move when a table...came free with a sea view. The food was heavenly, not your normal Thai by any means, I'd call it posh Thai. The whole baked snapper was as pretty visually as it was full of flavour, the prawn entree likewise. Couldn't fault a thing. Thank you for making our mums night out one to remember.More

Great service in an excellent location. We thoroughly enjoyed the chicken wings & crispy squid. We reordered twice. On of of our group chose the tofu, twice. A good sign if your into vegetarian.

Tasty food but I can't eat spicy food so there wasn't a lot of choice for the $15 lunch menu. It wasn't clear if you could ask for the "hot" items to be made up as "mild". Very nice surroundings. Nice music. Good service and...a great view over the water. Restaurants in Waiheke are quite expensive and this is really good value.More

Nice spot with sea views. Surprised that it was not busy as not always a good sign (early evening). Greeted by friendly waitress. Meals came up fairly quickly which were very tasty. We would happily recommend and go back again😁.

This place reviews well online and is in the heart of oneroa. Classic style Thai food - crinkle cut carrots etc - combines with classic atmosphere for a nice Thai meal. The mains are large and come with rice, the spring rolls were crisp. I...had the pork belly which was very tasty, others had the pad Thai, fish curry and vegan pad Thai. We chose the place to have some options for a member of our group who is vegan, and the meal was ok. $160 for 5 with soft drinks. Overall it lacked character, there were a couple of service hiccups (water for table without asking?), and I guess it felt a little generic. We’d go again, but it looks ready for a spruce up and review.More

We were surprised when we went to pick our takeaway up that the place was empty, as the location overlooking Oneroa was great and it has nice ambience. Our food was tasty across the board and nobody had a negative comment.

Ate here some weeks ago and really enjoyed the food, the setting and the ambiance. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant obviously has a faithful and deserved following of locals and visitors to the island.
