This is a popular and busy restaurant which means they must be doing something right. The venue is well laid out, service is efficient. Compared to Auckland Thai restaurants the food is average. Certainly not bad, but certainly not special, just very average. For Rotorua this might be the best they have to offer. Problem is the prices are Auckland... More

Wow! This place was awesome. Never had lamb in a Thai place. So glad the server recommended it. Chicken ginger was great too. Highly recommend.

The meals were tasty and the service good. But seriously i don't expect half my dishes to be made of garnishing predominantly finely shredded cabbage. So this then makes both overpriced and also the chicken cashew nut sauce was far too sweet. Sugar tax on this meal?

Plenty of choices for dinner at Eat Streat but we happen to have made a bad choice. The food here is not authentic, the Tom yum soup was watery and did not seem to have developed to the right flavour. We only ordered two dishes here (fried rice and honey chicken) and a small soup but our bill was almost... More

We enjoyed the food from the vegetarian menu. Fresh, tasty and well presented. The service was excellent on a busy Friday night with a major conference in town.

We had the vegetarian option of red curry, it was good, but a little to sweet, to much coconut milk. But still tasty. We also had pad Thai but for my taste, it doesn't come close to the original, that I had many times in Thailand. But still, it's nice to sit outside (also inside) and enjoy the food street.... More
