Great service. Asked for medium hot, meal arrived but bit hot for my wife chef offered to cook another meal. She said no and chef arrived with a cocktail think it may have been Mango based. You could not ask for better. Menu for Indian and Thi. My meal was great. Nice venue.

Check my reviews. I err on the generous side, and try to accentuate the positive. Phoned at 7 for a delivery that totalled about $100. The menu at the motel states delivery for orders over $60. I get that it was Jan 2nd and they were very busy. However the attitude of the man on the phone was totally unacceptable, a simple polite explanation of the situation and apology might have prompted us to walk down and pick up our order, but you obviously did better than most over the past difficult year if you can afford to turn business away with a brusque off-hand brush off. I hope you were not the owner. Hones pizza was excellent incidentally.

The menu is both Thai and indian, and it's huge. In my opinion too huge; it slows down the staff and makes the wait for some dishes difficult. The dishes themselves were tasty and just about worth the wait

Compared to the Greens in Paihia which is apparently owned by the same people, this was a really average meal to what we got on the mainland in their other place. All the staff are younger Indian and we asked if they had a Thai chef to which they responded they did (Paihia does), but judging by the Thai food we got dished up, I'd be stunned if a Thai chef made those dishes, there was no flavour whatsoever, no spice and salty soy sauce. We asked for fresh cut chilli and they brought some off looking mushed up chill. I got the impression this was an Indian with some Thai dishes added to cater to a bigger crowd. Service was non existent and we felt rushed to order even though there was only a few tables taken.
