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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Absolutely superb food, excellent service. Without doubt, one of the finest places to go. We drive from Geraldine to Ashburton just to go here - the food is that good, and the staff are delightful.

Beautiful service and Thai food. Now also serving Japanese food as their Thai chef has worked in Japanese restaurants in Japan too. I will try Japanese next time. Always a consistently warm welcome and delicious meals. Having travelled the world and NZ I can recommend...this restaurant as one of the best Thai places. Lovely new renovations and spacious seating design. An owner and staff who exemplify exceptional customer service.More

Stopped for dinner in transit. What a great find! Excellent fast, attentive service. Tasty meals, generous portions - a small roce would've done two of us easily and we had leftover mains to take home. arrived very quickly and the service was great, were asked...if we wanted entrees served first or everything together then was very speedy. Seems popular with the locals.More

We all ordered a beef dish and we were a bit disappointed because the beef was chopped in stew like pieces instead of sliced and not really tender. The sauce was a bit like a spicy stew sauce. To be honest it is not as...good as it was and it did not seem authentic. The staff are efficient and very pleasant.More

This was a great place for families, with enough variety to please everyone, even fussier eaters. We have a great-grandparent at one end and a younger boy at the other and plenty of choice to suit all Large servings meant there was more than enough...for us, but they brought out containers to put the left-overs into. Cheaper drinks helped keep the price down.More
