Surprising and nice find. Tom Tam with prawns was great, hearty and well priced. Pad Se Ew was also great! They had a berry cider also that was really delicious. Prices were pretty reasonable also!

Best Asian Fusion restaurant in New Zealand that I've visited. The portion is pretty big too. Taste is really nice. The price is reasonable.
