Good Thai Food

Called for dinner without a reservation and were pleased to find that a table was available as the restaurant was quite busy due to it being a public holiday. Service was fine and the food was good and plentiful. We were asked how spicy we would like our food when ordering and if anything it was... read more

This is a return meal and review. Perhaps not quite as good as last time but nevertheless still glad we went. Quite spicey (bordering on a bit heavy), but ingredients were fresh and lots of flavour. Good service. Window seat which was a bonus as interior nothing startling.

Was directed to eat here - however we were disappointed in the food. There was little or no flavour and it was very watery - had the Beef & Veg in oyster sauce. the rice was so so. The Roti was good thou so credit there as well as friendly staff. Maybe we have been spoiled by other thai places... More

Savory and delicious Panang Curry, tender beef, rich and plentiful sauce. A little unaccustomed to paying extra for white rice and take away orders are quite a bit less expensive as gratuities are factored into the dine-in menu pricing. Window tables look across the street to the beach yet we chose to sit on the beach picnic table. The Pad... More

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 service was very... 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
