Where do I start? One member of staff on the floor ensured that service was very lacking, especially as there was a large group in the restaurant. Surrounding tables went un-cleared as we dined as the lone waitress struggled to run the restaurant on her own. She did try her best and worked very hard. My partner ordered the Thai... More

We go to the Oriental Thai often as the food is always really good. Its not usually very busy and it looks a bit dated inside but worth going to try out. Good prices and a huge menu

Arrived into Wellington late at night and we were very pleased to see the Oriental Thai takeaway section was still open. The food was fresh and very tasty and it was cooked while we waited. The fried rice was different to what we've had before, it was a large serving and also very tasty. The oriental Thai curry was extremely... More

I have been to this restaurant a few times now, mainly because they have a very large table in the back of the restaurant that accommodates for very large groups. The service is good, but given the plethora of Thai restaurants in Wellington all offering similar options at the same price, Oriental Thai is let down by the quality of... More

First visited Oriental Thai in 1991, which was the first time in my life eating Thai food. Since then, in my memory, it has never been surpassed. Still the best in my book - start with the soups. Dined there twice in the past week. Location, on a busy stretch of Cambridge, not the best, but the interior is serene,... More

Dined there with a group recently and while it was a cold night it was not much warmer in the restaurant in fact we sat with our coats on for most of the evening. Our meals were not great, fish bones in fish cakes is a first and grissle in meat. Rotis never showed and one main was forgotten by... More
