Dropped in with a group that needed to be fed fairly quickly, and was delighted with the speed of service and quality of food. Very satisfying meals all round, and a good wine list that doesn't break the bank.

It's a little local Thai restaurant in Ellerslie. Surprisingly good quality food. Very fresh and tasty. We had duck curry and their soft shell crab signature dish. It's beautifully cooked and very nice. We will be back again soon.

Had the tom yum (good) and red curry w prawn and scallop. The food was well seasoned and prepared but like most places in NZ a bit overpriced. But the views makes it hard to complain bc it's quite stunning.

Great Thai food with a view of the bay. You can walk here from the Ferry (approx 25 minutes). Good service, although they don't split bills for groups. 15% surcharge on public holidays
