A good location close to the centre of Paihia. A very enjoyable meal although it was not 100% truly Thai! Tasty food and good service.

We had an excellent meal at the Amazing Thai. The Amazing Thai is a clear cut above the other Venus in Paihia.

A really good, authentic thai restaurant serving a great range of dishes. It's really big but was really busy when we went so we were glad we had reserved a table in advance. The food was good, service was good too however nothing really stood out to make it amazing! Worth a visit

Were there two times and have found that neither the bad nor the extremely good voices were right. In our Opinion this is a quite good Thai. Tasty food and good and friendly service at reasonable prices (for NZ) at any time visited. Not more but also not less!

Arrived on Friday night to be welcomed into busy restaurant with attentive waitresses. The service was amazing! Food excellent.

Had a table by the window with a lovely view of The Bay. The food was nicely cooked and had the right level of 'heat'. The service was superb. Everyone in our party was very happy with their meal.

Nice upmarket atmosphere, friendly staff and great Thai food. A very popular restaurant with great views of the harbour if you are at a table by the window.

I should have followed my instinct and not dined here, but I gave them the benefit of the doubt. Entrees were fine - although the oysters were very large. The chicken satay I had was run of the mill - quite tasty and an ample portion. We shared a main course of beef eye fillet with vegetables, rice and roti.... More
