Dropped in with a group that needed to be fed fairly quickly, and was delighted with the speed of service and quality of food. Very satisfying meals all round, and a good wine list that doesn't break the bank.

It's a little local Thai restaurant in Ellerslie. Surprisingly good quality food. Very fresh and tasty. We had duck curry and their soft shell crab signature dish. It's beautifully cooked and very nice. We will be back again soon.

Had lunch here when we arrived in Waiheke. It was a bit early for lunch so there's not much people around yet, so we got to choose the best table they have which is overlooking the Oneroa beach. The food was really good and very...More
