“Fantastic Thai in Masterton”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2014

My husband and I have been going to Thai Master Chef for some time. The food is fantastic and Chai the owner is a lovely man who gives personalised service that is attentive without being at all intrusive. The tempura vegetable appetiser is to die for, as are the coconut milk soups. All of the dishes are beautifully seasoned and we are particularly fond of the squid and pork mains. Highly recommended, and while not cheap, the food is reasonably priced, a real winner for Masterton.

“A nice surprise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2014

We stopped here late in the evening before heading to our campsite nearby. I had expected the food to be precooked as it is sometimes in small Thai restaurants, and this had the appearance of a chain. However it was all very fresh and the vegetables crisp and flavorful. Our fried spring rolls crispy and just made.The food is displayed beautifully on the plate and was plentiful. I would eat here again and again.

“Great sevice for Great Thai food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013

We are regulars. Personlised service as we have got to know Chai. Fresh clean well presented food. Owner often comes for chat while we are eating. As soon as he sees us, exchanges Thai greetings and then shares a catchup since our last visit. We often see other regulars there.

“The best Thai food in Masterton”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

We are regulars - but mostly takeaway. Prompt friendly service. Great food - #16 green chicken curry is a given and we build from there. My favorite (at present) is a pork stir fry with ginger. Eating in - the tables are very close together but some how that adds to the atmosphere. Highly recommended
