My wife and I went for our first date here in 2006. Food, service and atmosphere was great. We have been back several times, often with friends and family and had a great evening. We have however noticed a gradual decline in the quality of service and food over the past 4 years. Prices have also increased considerably over this period. The last time we went with a group of 5, service was very slow even though there were only a few diners present. The mains were brought out at different times. Some of us were almost finished dining when the last main was delivered. Have avoided the place for the past year.

Look I have been very sceptical since this restaurant was sold and was under new management, I tried once after the ownership had changed and I wasn’t at all happy with the quality of the meals. Me and my partner got a two”Tom Yum (chicken) soups” and Spicy Girl (She’s hot!!). The soups were 10/10 in flavour the spicy girl I have to be fair and say I would give it 7/10 I think it was good but a little bit bland in actual flavour, but for the price you pay it feeds two people. I have to give this experience a good feedback, until next time I guess. I hope they can carry on delivering good quality food.

First time there today. I ordered takeaway over the phone. Pad thai chicken was great but for $16.00 didn’t quite hit the spot. I’m a big eater and usually buy 2 servings from another thai eatery in Manukau which is just right for $10.50 each. This restaurants serving is a quart larger however I wouldn’t be willing to spend $32.00 when it’s cheaper elsewhere and of similar quality. Hill Rd Pad thai was delicious and of a higher standard than I’ve had elsewhere.

Service wise the waitress had no rapport. I’m a very humble friendly guy and she seemed intimidated. Probably my bald head and missing teeth.. lol

Will I go there again? YES. To try out there other dishes.

We visited this restaurant last night and were really disappointed. We ordered a mixed seafood meal and a squid one and the squid was overcooked in the mixed meal and borderline in the purely squid one. The flavour of the mixed seafood was really nice but the entree and the squid meal were quite bland. When we told the waitress that the squid was overcooked all we received was a smile!. It was not a cheap meal and a real disappointment . We will not be going back.

Have visited the place since I live in the Gardens many times over the last ten years, and it seems the food and owners change a bit, have not been there for a while simply because last time I went the waitress bought out the right food to he wrong persons since only two dishes came out at first, which you should not do till all are ready one couple started to eat while my wife and I waited for ours when it arrive we realised they were eating ours and we there’s by then it was to late to change we simple finished our food and when I went to pay I told them the situation an asked them simply to not charge us for our BYO two bottles but of course to them they were missing out on $10 they wanted to argue over it so there was a disagreement over the price to cut a long story short the customer is always right it might of seem they were short change for the byo which really is nothing at all four glasses to clean but since then we have not gone back and missed out on hundreds we go to a different Thai Restaurant in Papakura. Your loss, learn some PR skills if you want to succeed. And since you do takeaways put up a menu on your website so people don’t have to come in to order, might save lots of waiting around and you trying to get the right order to the right person lol.

Just found this restaurant after a bad service (no service) experience at Bronco’s.
Took a pot luck on a Monday night.
Great food, good service, fair price.
Our new favorite local Thai.

My wife and I have visited this restaurant twice in recent weeks. On both occasions we were accompanied by another couple. We all found the food expertly cooked and served. The authentic serving staff were helpful and prompt in dealing with our order. We plan to make further visits with other couples as part of our Christmas and New Year celebrations.
We have especially enjoyed the varied banquet menus.

Booked in at 7:00pm Saturday night. Arrived at 6:50 and seated at 7:00pm, so far so good. Shown the table and that was it until I requested service at 7:25pm. Not even a drink offered before that!!!! People left the table next to us at 7:45pm and said good luck? WE finally got one drink each and our food (food passable for food hall take aways and nothing more). NO more offer for drinks!!! Left at 8:45 and the table that had left an hour before still had the dirty dishes on it! Went to pay by the advertised AMEX and was told they didnt accept them! NOT VERY IMPRESSED with lack of service, average food and mis represented payment type. Visit the takeaways next door for a better meal and service.

I agree with the previous reviewer – this restaurant has been ruined since it changed ownership.

It used to be a good, solid but fairly unexciting local restaurant with reasonable prices.

Unfortunately, since the restaurant came under new management (mid-2009), the menu has gone dramatically downhill, the food is noticeably inferior and the service isn’t quite as good. A terrible shame.

this used to be my favourite place but they have just changed ownership. i would usually order via ph then collect and last time i did this they did not advise me of the change of ownership nor menu change. i didnt find out until i got home and saw my snapper dish had been replaced with some cheap fish that was as rubbery as an old boot yet they had let me pay like $26 for it. needless to say i took it all back – the other dishes were also an embarrassment to thai food altogether. do not go to this place you will only be ripped off and dissapointed.
