We hadn’t been here for at least a year, even two: travel away from Whangarei had caused this. Pimarn Thai has been a super cheap good value place to eat in the past. Our visit tonight was a revelation - the prices on the entrees...More

Lunch was as usual very good value and we enjoyed the warm welcoming into the venue. Central city and easy parking in area made for a good spot to carry on shopping after lunch.

A fast service , friendly staff, good decor and one of the best tasty Thai food I’ve ever had. Go for the Penang duck curry, the chicken cashew nut stir fry or the thom yum soup. Highly recommend this place.
