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.

Excellent attentive service, fast and flavoursome food and large quantities. Great selection of alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks. The surroundings were tidy and colourful. We had a pleasant enjoyable meal.

The quality of food has dropped at this restaurant. Wasn't too happy with the service. Usually there's an explanation of returned food and the owner should have advised that he charged for returned food. Based on my experience today, I am not going back to...this place.More

Can I give a 0 star for this place? We ordered tum yum soup, a chicken and 2 prawns. The Prawn tom yum soup was blend just like prawns in some water without the actual taste of tom yum, ginger, lemongrass. It was so blend...that it didn't make sense. When having the chicken tom-yum and then the prawn one, it was extremely different. For mains, we ordered Chicken Cashew nuts, Chicken in Oyster Sauce and Chicken Pad Thai. My Oyster Sauce dish was blend as well like the tom-yum sauce, edible but taste the salt, oyster sauce or anything else. Well the Pad Thai was served 1st and straight away it was so pathetic that all 3 of us didn't like it. The dish smelled eggy even without taking a bite from the plate and when you have a bite it, it was even more pathetic. We sent the dish back straight away and told the person who served us. Upon getting the bill, i was billed for all dishes even though we returned the Pad Thai dish. The person at the counter and the person who served us both said they do not refund for dishes that have been returned if the customer doesn't like it. Then they kept on saying that the same food is served to all. I am not sure if the same food is served to all then what's the point to made to order at such restaurants. Pathetic service, didn't even offer for a replacement dish for the Pad Thai and even being arrogant. Last time I would go this place. Better thai food is served at food courts.More

Our group had a lovely dinner here. It was quiet and very spacious. Entree's were a good size and same with the mains. Lots of Doggy Bags. Cooked to perfection and delivered in a very timely manner. Great friendly owners and waiters. Will definitely be...going back.More

The restaurant has had a overhaul since our last visit, really nice decor. I had the Duck Basil, and my wife had the Chicken Yellow Curry. Although mine was quite tasty and filling, I felt their was not enough duck, it felt overwhelmed by the...amount of vegetables. My wife did say how much she enjoyed her meal. The staff were very attentive. Won't stay away so long next time.More

My wife and i have been to this restaurant 3times. Each time the service was nonexistent. The 1st two times the food was good but the last time the food matched the service. Whole snapper way overcooked and served wrong side up to hide way...overcooked side. We were served 1 drink then got our food and never saw waitress again until we had to go and pay the bill. No offer for dessert. Did not even come to see if meal was okay or see if we wanted another drink though the waitress walked past several times. An attitude which showed the restaurant does not care about their paying guests. As much as we love Thai food we will never go back.More

The service was friendly and efficient and the menu traditional. In terms of quality, the food was acceptable. The only negative was either too much salt or too much fish sauce. It would be good to have some condiments like fish and chili sauce to...adjust to personal taste. Tow starters, two mains and 3 Singha beers (plus rice) cost $86NZ, which is on the high side for us. But we will go back for the overall experience. (The servings are good and we were able to take the leftovers home for a next day snack) A small faux pa was being served pork Panang instead of chicken Panang, but it was just as good as chicken, no fat!!More

We visited on Valentine’s Day and, although we had not made reservations, we were seated immediately. Our waitress provided excellent service. The green curry chicken was excellent! Many people came in to the restaurant to pick up takeaway orders, so it must be a favorite...with the locals. Good value for your money.More

The meals were good and cost $26.00 each but that did not include the rice. $8.00 per small cup sized portion. We had 3 between the two of us, so that was $28.00 for plain boiled rice! Rip off! The rice needs to be included...in the meal price. Service okay. Tables covered in empty dishes. The place must have changed hands as it use to be really good. Will NOT go back!More

The food is okay at a reasonable price. However the most outstanding feature is the service. Well trained, polite, attentive and with a fair bit of character was the young waitress who served our table.

So we went there as the TripAdvisor reviews were good. Maybe they changed chefs, but the service was also lacking. I called to book, left a voicemail, but received no confirmation. Ever hopeful we went anyway. We were seated and noticed a hideous damp smell,...caused by an old leak above our table. Service was slow and dishes piled up at tables around us. When the food came we were very disappointed. I know that Thai uses lots of sugar, but come on, the satay treated like it had been marinated and coated in sugar- the theme continued, everything was sickly sweet. There was shouting from the kitchen, which I always hate. I hope, it is a dip, and they pick up their game, as I hate to see small businesses fail. Please owners, just take more care.More

Hi Owner of the Restaurant my last dining experience at your restaurant was really bad. The service is slow but friendly. The food was absolute tasteless and not eatable at all, I guess you know exactly which table we are, if not it was the...table full with food left behind. We won't be back again.More

I have been here a few times since I moved here. I really liked this place and the great food. What changed? I do not know it but the food lost his excellency. I had a few weeks ago a take away soup and it...was literally only water wit coconut milk warmed with a single prawn and three pieces of vegetable in it. Last week I thought I try it again with friends. Worst experience ever. We had the platter to share for three an entree and i doubt a single item was made in the kitchen itself but at least it was alright. We had three different mains and all tasted the same, lack on flavour and the meat chewy so we left 3/4 of it behind. As we payed and mentioned it to the owner or boss she smiled at us and the only thing she said the chef works here since 5 years. I understand that sometimes thing like this happen but I never experienced and so ignorant complaint management. I can not recommend this anymore. Have some Fast Food it is better and probably cheaper as wellMore
