Very good Thai food!

I had the Cashew chicken with medium spice and my wife had the Green Curry chicken. The cashew chicken was very good but the curry chicken was amazing. It was cooked with coconut butter so it was creamy with a good curry flavor. We were there for a late lunch so there was no crowd and the... read more

Four of us arrived in Paihia and wanted to eat Thai - everywhere in New Zealand has Thai restaurants, so we were confident we would find one. Sure enough, we found Amazing Thai, but it was only average, not amazing. There was no atmosphere in the place. The staff were reasonably pleasant. The food was ok but, as frequent Thai... More

Overall we were quite disappointed by the value for money in restaurants in Paihia. This restaurant was nicely decorated, spacious and the food was ok but definitely was far from amazing. We had just had an amazing day with our kids and swam with dolphins in the wild and when we got back we waited 45mins for this place to... More

We wanted a decent meal with good service, and without paying tourist prices. We got it. Its quite a large dining room, with some tables looking out over the street to the harbour. If you fancy sitting down to a decent Thai meal we recommend giving it a go. Maybe if its too busy service may stutter or other diners... More

The service, decor etc were good as one might expect but what made the evening memorable was the special of the day - the pork belly cooked Thai style which was so delicious that both my husband and I are still occasionally referring to it in conversation with a smile.

My partner loves thai food and was recommended here from our motel hosts. I thought that the food was good and the location was even better. We both had a 3 course meal each which wasn't overly pricey. However a bottle of sparkling grape juice is about $12 on the menu and $4 at the supermarket. Thought that was quite... More

The food was delicious when it arrived, unfortunately everyone else in the restaurant who arrived after us, got their food before us... pretty frustrating when you're starving after a day full of activities!

I was in the area on business and ate here with 3 colleagues. First impressions is the restaurant looked immaculate, it really is the nicest looking Thai restaurant I've seen. However, I feel the food here do not justify the prices. All of the meals are around the $20 plus range which I think was a bit high compared to... More
