Good choice, great set menu

I came her for a work dinner. It was everything I expected and the food lived up to its reputation. As the sister store is just down the road in Island Bay I had a fair idea of how it would be. We got the $27 set menu between about 20 people. It was plenty of food and it tasted... read more

I can't get over how many options there are for Thai food in New Zealand! We came upon The Oriental Thai on a rainy winter night in Wellington. Upon first glance it seemed a bit more posh than I wanted (plush seats, lots of gold ornamentation), but the food turned out to be delicious! We ordered everything from Steam Pot... More

I went here with three other friends last night and we all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The waitress had an excellent knowledge of the menu and was able to have our meals catered to various needs of our party. I had a type of steamed dim sum for my entree (delicious and peppery!) and for my main had a stir-fry... More

the worst thai restaurant i have ever been in wellington. Tonight the rude chef after mocking, and insulting me with racist comments in front of my partner and friend call the cops on me because he assumed i didn't want it to pay a $20 dollar duck red curry, that tasted like sugar syrup, without duck. Starter was an overcook... More

We came for dinner as it was one of the few restaurants open on Christmas Day. Surprisingly, it was not very full at all. The food was tasty and the chef didn't have a problem with some changes we had for one of the dishes. Also, our waitress recommended that we not order any pork dishes as the pork they... More

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
