My favourite spot for authentic Larb Gai, Red Crab offers warm and inviting hospitality with tasty thai cuisine whether you're dining in or taking away. I adore their spring rolls, chicken satay, and for a special treat check out the Gai Yang and Soft Shell Crab fried rice as well as the other crab chef specials.
Real nice lunch option if in the Ellerslie area. The food is of great quality complimented by great service. Just be sure that you understand the spiciness scale! It sometimes can be spicier than expected, but the staff are generally very help. Red Crab also carries a good selection of beer and wine. I felt that the dinner portions could do with a bit more....but its just my humble opinion.
We were initially put off by the location directly next to the train tracks (and Ellerslie train station) however was pleasantly surprised that there was no disturbance or noise intrusion from the passing trains.
Food and service was fantastic - and they were great with the kids despite their behaviour :-|
Will definitely be dining here again in future; also great to see a good range of NZ craft beers available including Halllertau & Stokes
