Amazing secret location, highly recommended, totally unexpected to find this place hidden away in Otahuhu. In fact don't mention it to anyone as it's too good to share!

A rainy evening. Three of us went through a narrow entrance - and found ourselves in a magical place. We wandered through a garden path full of exotic plants, with statues, coloured lights and an old tuk tuk - it was just like being back in Bangkok. The experience continued with a warm welcome and menus brought immediately. Excellent service.... More

We got married here, many moons ago, and it went downhill for a while, but on a recent visit we were pleasantly surprised. The place has been refutbished, but keeps it atmosphere, and the food is great.

Three of us ordered a dish each and we put them in the middle to share. The meals were all beatifully presented and came to the table really quickly. Everything was very tasty. The restaurant layout and unique features was pretty cool. Definitely recommend trying it out. Might be cold on a very cold wet windy night though.

We have been here twice and think this place is truly a hidden gem in Otahuhu. It is so popular you better book well in advance.

Called around 6:30 pm on a Friday night to request a booking at 8:30pm. The person on the phone said that there may be a 15 min wait. However at 7:00 pm I received a call saying we would come in as early as 8:00 pm. I was impressed. The service is always great and the quality of the food... More

My husband and I were on our honeymoon in Fiji when things weren't going to plan with floods and a cyclone headed our way. We had the fortunate pleasure of meeting the owner of Secret Thai Garden - Nobby at the airport, once he found out we were heading to New Zealand he invited us to his restaurant and we... More

from the first moment you step into the entrance way you are transported to an Asian fairy land. The imaginative use of space, the lights, the gorgeous natural plants all add to the atmosphere. Once you enter this fabulous restaurant you are greeted by charming attentive staff and presented with a great assortment of food choice. Then the food, if... More
