A sudden lunch rush and the food was delicious. Coffee was great and service was very friendly. Love this place!

Had a great meal at Snake Bite - tried 5 of the small plates (bao buns, tempura squid, hawker roll and dim sum). All delicious, with tasty sauces and salad/pickles in the bao buns and hawker roll. The squid was great - but it wasn’t...tempura. Didn’t stop us enjoying it though 😋. Good range on the drinks menu (didn’t try the cocktail specialty but it looked fun!). Would definitely go back.More

These guys were pumping food at all times. Food was delicious and I would eat here everytime. We had a delicious thai chicken curry & my husband ate beef cheek in thai sauce. Portion sizes were enough & enjoyable.

We had lunch and all 6 of us enjoyed our food. Good hot and spicy Asian dishes with a Thai theme. Highly recommended as by far the best Asian food we have found in South Westland.

I had the best prawn tom yum I’ve had in years. My partner’s Nadi Goreng was also excellent. With a takeaway trifle for desert rounding out an excellent meal. Happy to see the place busy, service was friendly and efficient. All round highly recommended with...lovely live music playing too.More

Several vegetarian options - the two we tried were well presented and really tasty. The staff were friendly and attentive (but not oppressively so). Food and drinks arrived promptly.

Great place to eat. Lovely atmosphere and staff. Havent had a snakebite in awhile so that was a great throw back! I got the Nasi Goreng based off other people's reviews... found it a bit dry to my liking.. my partner had the green thai...curry and wow.. creamy and delicious. Would come againMore
