My wife and I love Thai food and are very fussy about the food having the correct textures and tastes (Thai food does not have to be extremely spicy but must be full of flavour); Taupo Thai is right up there and probably rates as a Top 5 NZ Thai restaurant.

It them 2 hours to get the food out to the table, and when the food finally came out it was not very nice or authentic. Would not recommend this restaurant.

Being part of an Asian family, it's hard to find good Asian food (Thai included) that will meet our taste. However, taupo Thai restaurant impressed us and recommend this restaurant to everyone! From tom yam soups to pad Thai, we were filled and very Very satisfied! Thank you for such good service :)

A beautiful restaurant at good location. Very friendly service but food is average Thai food. The menu itself is reflection of what is on offer and nothing great. Prawn cake is above the rest. Value for money. Room for improvement.

Food was good and reasonable selection. Price ok but the retaurant lacked atmosphere on the night we were there. Good but nothing special....

Great food and very authentic. Even better the price compared to a Thai restaurant in Rotorua was nearly half. Would recommend their food - we really enjoyed our lunch there.

Dined here the other night, and found the food to be of good quality and the staff friendly. Good range of dishes to choose from fresh and reasonably priced. Easy parking was a bonus too.

Having tried other Thai Restaurants in Taupo I would like to recommend this restaurant in particular. Not Nouvelle Cuisine or Pseudo Thai but genuine Thai spices and flavours. Very large restaurant which maybe doesn't have the Ambiance of other Thai reataurants but the food, service and friendly welcome are well worth a try.

Thank sublaloge
