Winter specials deals....

Reasonable winter specials! It was good but didn't get the taste of Thai with the specials. Good and unique choice of desserts. The deep fried banana, flamed was delicious...

My friend and I visited Paihia just this last weekend and we took advantage of the two for one winter special. Whilst my meal was ok, my friend specifically requested that her lamb dish was to be served 'mild to medium with no peppercorns'. Whilst the latter was adhered to, the dish was served as a hot - so hot... More

My party and I were served the worst Thai food that we've ever had. This was coupled with service that was rude and borderline hopeless. Oh, and the restaurant was cold on an already cold night. Thai food is some of the tastiest in the world, but not at Amazing Thai. We were served boring, low quality food that skimped... More

Great atmosphere, great wait staff, and amazing food. We were sat immediately and the food came within 10 minutes of ordering it. If you're lucky and go during winter, they have a 2for1 deal going on. I was able to get the Basil Chicken and Chili dish and the Beef Oyster Sauce dish for just $22.50! I ate both with... More

Came here when it was called the Yellow Thai Café about 6 years ago now. It was one of the best meals in my little life. Amazing views of the sea. And the second best Thai I've ever in my life. And that's good, cos I've have a lot of Thai's. Great food, great place. Smiley Face.

The crispy pork and peanut sauce is, was excellent. Many thanks. Open spaces so your not crowded. Too many choices but really any choice would probably be a good one. Comfy seating. Quick friendly service. I am sure the views during the day and in summer would be one not to miss as there is no parking to spoil the... More
