I've travelled around Thailand and been to many Thai restaurants in Auckland, and I've found Thai people to be some of the most friendly & hospitable people I have met. This restaurant and it's owners bring disgrace to Thailand. Tonight I had the worst experience I've ever had at a restaurant in my life. I didn't mind so much their over-priced menu, where despite the high prices, you still have to pay extra for the rice. But when I asked if I could have some rice to take away with half my left over curry (as I didn't have much rice at all with my meal) and was refused unless I paid even more, I made it clear that I found it unfair that they would've happily served me more rice at the table for no charge, but wouldn't give me any to take away. They finally agreed to give me rice to take away, but proceeded to argue with me over a petty container for the rice, and the owner finally said he would do it this one time, but he never wanted to see me in his restaurant again! I was shocked and appalled that he would say this to a customer - over rice! My 6 friends and I all told them to forget the left overs, paid and promptly left the restaurant. These people should not be in business as they have no idea about how to treat customers. Diners in the restaurant were watching in awe at how we were being spoken to and I can safely say, none of our group or the diners who were in the restaurant will be revisiting this establishment - and neither should you!!

When you say they proceeded to argue about the petty container, don't you mean you proceeded to argue? It sounds a bit like you were trying to make them look bad in front of everyone unnecessarily. Why didn't you ask for more rice with your meal and then ask for both to be put in a container to take home? if there was so much of your dish left over they must give you quite generous portions??
I am tempted to visit them just to prove that they are probably very nice even though i live on the other side of Auckland. - Report
