My family of 4 dined here last night to celebrate my son's birthday and were made to feel very special indeed! Very polite and attentive service in a warm and friendly environment. My 11yr old had chosen this place for his birthday dinner after we...dined here for the first time last year. At the end of the meal, they brought him a free dessert of fried banana and icecream (with spoons for us all!) and sang him happy birthday! Such super lovely staff and really tasty food. Highly recommend, we will definitely be back!More

We bought a Penang and green curry as a take away . They looked virtually the same, the vegetables were over cooked and looked very similar to those found in a bag of frozen veg. Not creamy at all . A real shame

This was our first time here. The ambience is nice, the staff are very friendly and accommodating. The food choices were pretty amazing and the one entrée/appetizer and two mains that we shared were delicious. We felt that the price of wine by the [small]...glass or bottle was on the rather high sideMore

I would not be able to classify this Parnell restaurant as excellent. Main staff member was sharp and business like rather than friendly ad helpful. very dark inside the restaurant. Toilet a long way from the restaurant up steps etc, There was a mistake with...only receiving one entree instead of 2. Unusual to have to pay additional for rice. Food was average compared to other cheaper Thai restaurants we have been to.More

We had take-aways during L3 . Quantity is good, quality of vegetables etc good, but the Thai flavours were very Kiwi Thai and not authentic Thai. Little to no flavour as we would expect of Thai food. Very disappointing, given the rave reviews we had...heard about.More

Fresh herbs in our Thai food is a more milder cleaner style of cuisine as we do not use flavour enhancers like the majority of others

we went here for Friday lunch and enjoyed the elephant themed decor and gracious service. our food was very well done, piping hot and super tasty. a wonderful satay sauce on tender chicken (so often saty can be tough). huge range of vegeterian options as...nearly all meals can be made with tofu. quiet location and not to busy. excellent value for money as it is reasonably priced food for the quality of it. my only small grumble was my ginger beer was erved at room temperature with no ice, and even though it was a bottle of Bundaberg I only got a glass and needed to ask for the rest of the bottle. my husbands beer was in a glass with the remaining in the bottle and was chilledMore
