Fab Surprise

Just dined at Thai Orewa this evening and what a great surprise. Food, service was awesome. We had fish cakes, made on the premises, Tom Yum Gai, very fresh and flavorful, beef salad - spicy, hot, slightly smokey and chicken larb. Best Thai food I have had in Auckland for many years and lots... read more

The food here isn't the best and I've been to a number of Thai restaurants. Curry was quite watery and tasted ok. Stir fry in garlic and chilli sauce was nice but again, I've had better. The chef got one of our orders wrong, they quickly took it back to change, but there was no apology until we mentioned it... More

It's an olde Orewa icon, been there for years and the food is dreary and uninspired. 2015 palates have evolved and R E A L ethnic flavours are now required by better travelled patrons. We 4 ordered different meals. My Prawn Pad Thai was sugary sweet which was the predominant flavour, yuk, but did have a good number of prawns... More

This restaurant is on the waterfront road but no views of the water. Parking is easy and within walking distance if you can't park out the front. We had BYO wine and we're happy with the very reasonable corkage of $6. You can purchase wine beers etc in the restaurant. Staff were really friendly and as we had a large... More

Fantastic service and the Tom Yum soup is to die for! Those of you who like a bit of heat, go for the Chicken Hot Hot. Great location, reasonable prices, but very good quality.

The location near the beach is great and the fact you can park on the main road or behind the shop and walk through is a bonus. This was my 4th visit and it was consistent with previous ones. Very good selection of dishes. The peanut satay is really the only item I feel is not quite authentic as compared... More
