“Average food and service - nothing notable”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

OK if you want a relatively quick basic meal at a reasonable price - nothing memorable although a wide range of dishes on the menu

Front of house staff pleasant but seem to lack experience

“nothing fancy, but solid thai food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2012 via mobile

went there after the italian restaurant next door was very "unfriendly" (upper deck empty, but "no seats available"!). food is solid thai food, nothing special but good. value for money was good. service seemed to be quite okay, compared to other reviewers we did not have an issue at all.

“food ok, amature service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2012

I will keep it simple, Food was Ok , nothing special, the service was very poor, the floor staff had no idea what they were doing. This place charges top dollar and we expected much better service.

“Thai Food Delight”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2012

We have been to this restaurant several times over the last few years. We have never been disappointed by the food, and have had some wonderful meals there. We have always found the service to be prompt.

On this visit we were amazed by the beautiful Thai sizzing steak. The duck was also great. For value, and quality the meals are excellent value for money.

“Always very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2012

Have been to all Rotorua Thai restaurants, but for location, service, price and most importantly food taste and quality, Wild Rice is hard to beat - highly recommended.
