Tapas Thai!

We went here for dinner to catch up with some friends, and at just before 6pm, we were the first to arrive. Our table was ready and we were looked after very well. I even asked for a cocktail, which wasnt on their menu, and this wasnt a problem at all for the bar staff! The food was absolutely... read more

The last time I came for dinner was with a group, we sat upstairs in their private room, and I thought the food was pretty average; this time the food impressed - most dishes were spicy and flavoursome with multiple components and flavours. Particularly enjoyed the jungle curry, market fish, wild ginger, snake bean and green peppercorn dish ($32), which... More

Great place, close to the Verandahs where we stayed. Nice asian inspired food. Reservation recommended, even during the week. However as with a lot of dining in New Zealand we found it overpiced.

Wow! Totally loved this place! The food was fantastic, the wait staff were great, and the atmosphere was brilliant. Kind of this hip South American music playing which confused the Asian theme slightly, but I found it really worked. Not cheap, but well worth it for a nice night out!

We are here on our first and last night in Auckland. Over our visits we enjoyed the massaman goat curry and also the red beef curry. Both were exceptional. With the beef curry it would have been nice for the meat to be removed from the bone and cut up, it didn't do a whole lot for presentation. Also as... More

Moo Chow Chow has never stunned me and this visit was no different. The food is ok but doesn't stand out enough for the price they charge. The waitress was nice but told us that ordering two curries between two people was far too much food. After ignoring her advice she picked up empty plates and was unapologetic about her... More

Once we had battled our way through the awful Auckland traffic, our party of seven received a warm and friendly welcome from the serving staff. We also received just the right amount of help in deciding how much to order from the sharing menu. The food was outstanding - every dish flavoursome, fragrant and delicious! Would certainly visit again -... More
