We have been to " The Thai" in Mangonui village several times with friends and have thoroughly enjoyed both the atmosphere and the food. We have taken some of our overseas friends who themselves are well travelled and "The Thai" restaurant has blown them away! The food is fantastic, fresh and so flavoursome so be sure to book a table

We were planning to dine in but it was fully booked when I phoned on Sunday 1 June 2014. We decided to order take away instead. Food was ready within 15 minutes, even though we were told 20min when we placed the order. All three of the dishes we ordered was delicious. Highly recommended and will go back when up... More

Ambience, service and quality of the meal were all appreciated for a Thai restaurant in such an out-of- the-way spot

The food is great, cost is average, They do squeeze you in, with tables close together. The service is good, You can see the kitchen and it looks clean and organised.

We were happy to come here after a distinctly unfriendly reception at The Waterfront Café - "you can sit over there on bar chairs, and it will take 40 minutes for you to get food..." (No, we didn't go back there any other evening either) The service at this Thai was at least reasonably friendly, although they did try to... More

The food was very nice and very spicy. Should not have ordered an entree as it was quite large and then could not do my main meal justice, though is was nice and the staff were okay with giving me a doggie bag. Staff were mostly on the ball though hubby had to get up to approach the desk for... More

What a suprise to find such a superb Thai restaurant in this tiny village and the location is stunning with views to die for.

Very accommodating as they were very busy and we did not have a booking but we were fitted in. Didn't dislike anything.

We have takeaways from here weekly and the food is supreme delicious. Always recommend to my guests. I haven't dined in for a long time and would like to see if staff are now more friendly, but phone service manner is always prompt and polite and I love the food itself. FOOD IS 5 STAR!

We were not greeted in a friendly manner when we arrived, probably because we hadnt made a reservation (but they weren't full the entire time we were there). The food was reasonably good but the service was not great. Interior was rather crowded. I wont be going back.
