Beautiful restaurant, great food, wonderfully attentive staff. Opens at 5pm for dinner so great for that meal out before the theatre or movies. I've eaten in many times and have their takeaways almost weekly.

I visit my friend in Whangarei as often as possible because that gives us a great reason to dine out - at Suk Jai restaurant, of course!
