The view of course is amazing and the waiter was friendly but we couldn’t say the same about the food.

Chicken stir fry and Tiger prawns were the order of the day, but both were massively disappointing. The noodles were limp and overcooked, the chicken did not look appetising at all, and the vegetables were soggy - it was as if the whole lot was cooked yesterday and re-heated. The prawn dish was similarly unappetising.

Unfortunately we couldn’t finish the meal and had to leave. The manager was pleasant but non-apologetic.

Overall, not too much more than that to say. Perhaps we were unlucky as there are many good reviews here, but that was our experience.

Red crab serves tasty Thai food. As well as a good menu they offer a set price for a lunch with several options. Great view of the ocean. I've been several times and enjoyed it.

We first dined here 6 years ago back in 2013 on our previous North Island trip ..... we were so impressed with the restaurant then that we knew we would be coming back!

We therefore did not hesitate in paying the $80 return ferry trip to visit Red Crab again ..... and boy, we were not at all disappointed as the high standards of the Red Crab had not diminished whatsoever in six years.

We shared steamed prawns and the house-made curry puffs for starters and they were both sensational entrees.

For mains we enjoyed the magnificent soft-shell crab and a duck curry ..... again they were "to die for" dishes. We just cannot rate this restaurant highly enough, not only for their amazing cuisine but also for the friendly, efficient service and of course, the stunning ocean view.

food was great, walked in with a group of 6 and they found room for us, even though the restaurant was pretty full. easy to get the attention of the wait staff when we needed to. the meals were prepared fast and all came out together which was great. great price for what we ordered.
