The food here is tasty. It is prepped quickly. It is very affordable too. We enjoyed talking with the friendly staff. We liked the food so much, we went here twice during our trip to New Zealand. We enjoyed the Pad Thai and Penang curry.

Decent enough Thai food, located near to my accommodation. Tom Yum Kung was a tad salty for my liking. Fish cakes were yummy, so was the Paeneng Curry. Chicken wings were crispy and hot but bland. Cute ladies manning the till, very helpful when recommending dishes. Also offered to change out all my loose change!

Went there because we reached Christchurch pretty late at night. The food is real cheap and delicious! Pad Thai especially! Great place for students!

Really nice Thai food. Flavours are nice but are westernised-no heat. Picnic tables to eat at. We took it home. Opposite hospital, very handy position. Fair price for Thai takeaway food. Very convenient and fast.

After seeing reviews on Trip Advisor, I assumed this was an actual restaurant - not a food truck. Surprise #1. Also, I'm not really a fan of much Thai food but the Pad Thai with chicken was most enjoyable. Surprise #2. We took the food back to our hotel room and had a pleasant, tasty, informal meal.

Description
We are a relocated restaurant from the city due to the earthquakes. After the Earthquakes we managed to start up again this time as a takeaway with outdoor seating and making great use of a 40ft container which we converted to a 40ft Kitchen,
Our Chefs are still serving restaurant quality food, at takeaway prices. We have a busy little spot so wait times can average between 5-15mins for your meal , txt orders are a good way to go on a wet day ... We look forward to seeing you here.

Just remember when placing feedback ..If you have had a problem let us know straight away so we can resolve it, it's hard to be given a opportunity to fix things if you don't tell us.
