Just had dinner at Thai Container. They cater for gluten free which is great and the food came out very quickly. Great seating area in front of the caravan you order from. It seems the food is cooked inside a shipping container which has been...More

Being on a 14-day business trip in Christchurch this winter I went to the Thai container three times. It's better than the Thai food I know from my home area for sure and I thought this is good already. Nothing else to say. I can...More

Thai container is delicious, well portioned and fantastic value for money. The staff are very polite and always quick to make you feel welcome. I enjoy eating here and strongly suggest trying out this fine establishment

We ordered a handful of dishes for our family and all were very good. The food was prepared incredibly quickly and the portions were large. Very happy with the quality and size of the meal for the price and would certainly order from them again...More

Was surprised to turn the corner, expecting to see a restaurant, but discovering a food stall. The name screams quaint but the food was anything but! A tasty selection, and arguably the best Thai I have had. Would highly recommend.

We were pleasantly surprised to turn the corner to find a small caravan style stall when we were expecting a restaurant. The set up was cosy yet beautiful and the staff were incredibly friendly. We tried the Pad Thai, Pad See-eiw and a Peanut sauce...More

Definitely one of the best takeout options in the city. Both times I've been, the food was really good. Very Vegan & vegetarian friendly! However, the staff aren't very good.. both times I've received terrible customer service. The girls gossip about people while you're there,...More

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.
