Its big, expensive and flash looking and we'd always avoided it, but were talked into trying it. Service from German backpackers was friendly but slow. Food was unauthentic, bland and massively overpriced. "sticky ribs on boc choy" was in fact bones that were cooked a week previously, with zero flavour or moisture, resting on a handful of watties mixed veg.... More

Thank you bgboyle for your feedback. Apparently the food was so poor you came back to us for more last night after saying you would never be back. Hope you enjoyed the duck. Putting a negative review on this forum when unwarranted is not helpful. Saying that food is a week old and served with Wattie frozen vegetables when not... More

We had a fantastic meal here. The food was absolutely excellent and very fresh. Service was a little slow but that was because the restaurant was so busy giving it not only spectacular views but a great atmosphere too. Would highly recommend a visit.

So, initially we entered a restaurant that was understaffed but because we made a reservation it didn't actually matter. We got exactly the table we wanted and with the spectacular view we wanted. Despite messing up the starters we eventually got what we had ordered and the food does not disappoint. Very very good food and for that reason we... More

Really good thai food at Amazing thai, our party had the special pork belly, chilli basil and pad thai. All of us enjoyed our meal very much. The wait staff were friendly, polite and helpful. They were happy to box up our leftovers. We had a table that overlooked the beautiful paihia bay, and the large doors were open to... More

Recently in Paihia on a family holiday and we ate here twice. Each time the food was served quickly. The food was delicious and the serving staff friendly and helpful. At first I thought it a pity there was no children's menu, but our children enjoyed the food we ordered anyway!

Hi GeorgiyH I remember the front of house telling me about the childrens menu! But by experience, as you saw, the children are usually happy to have a bit of everything. The good thing about that is, thery learn about new tastes and experiences, instead of the usual kids meals. They may become the "foodies" of the future! So glad... More
