After eating in several more New Zealand Thai restaurants I appreciated my meal here (and at a sister location, Thai Tahuna, in Nelson) more and more. The chef understood the core Thai spices and all the food was fresh. The satay was a bit too sweet for me but I enjoyed the panang. Since this was our first dining experience... More

Pros being that it's almost budget friendly, the staff were nice and it is quick. But that is all irrelevant given that the food is of a poor quality, probably reheated. I've spent time in Thailand and this was garbage in comparison. Disappointing but there aren't a wealth of options in Invercargill if you're trying to keep expenditure to a... More

I'd like to recommend Thai Dee for groups wanting to enjoy an evening out. They couldn't have been more helpful from my first phone call to book us in. We were able to bring a celebration cake with us, and the staff lit the candles & delivered it to the table when we were ready. They also helped us take... More

I love the consistency with this place. It is one of the closest food places to where I work, so we go here all the time. Have tried just about everything on the menu and have never had a bad experience. Staff are always very friend and meals are always quick, which is good when you only have a half... More

This isone of a chain of restaurants. Mid price range, always predictable and acceptable food. Well prepared. They do takeaways as well as eat in and send detailed instructions about food safety with takeaways which is an excellent idea that i have never seen elsewhere.

My husband and I were driving most of the day to get to Invercargill and were staying in Livingspace, right around the corner. We went to Thai Dee because it was the first place we ran into and it was next door to the movie theater, where we went next. The service was fast and the food was tasty. The... More

Awesome food, always enjoyable. Very fast and excellent prices. Location next to Reading Cinemas in great for a quick meal before a movie. Great for a quick lunch, Panang Curry is the best in comparison to other Thai Restaurants as it has vegetables included. Recommend.
