The best chicken and peanut sauce in christchurch! Friendly staff, huge servings, fresh produce and a convenient location - what's not to love?! Highly recommend Poppy Thai.

Good, quick and easy thai food which is well priced for what it is. Good location too. Only thing i could say is that the menu could be larger, otherwise great.

Located on Level 2 of Westfield Shopping Mall in Riccarton, this place didn't appear to have anyone manning the stall at the onset as I have to wait for a couple of minutes before someone turned up from the back. Ordered pad thai and massuman lamb curry and it was the most ordinary pad thai that I have ever tasted.... More

If you want Thai in a hurry then this is a good place to go. We ordered from the week menu and watched as it was put together very quickly from fresh ingredients. Reasonable price and friendly service.

I should have been suspicious when I telephoned for a Sunday night booking and got an incomprehensible reply. The fact is we were duped because this Poppy Thai (its a chain it seems) is located in a mini-food court upstairs at Westfield Riccarton Mall. We were too late to search elsewhere and stayed to regret it. How this place ever... More

Very fast service. Although we ate in the evening and found it reasonable its excellent value at lunch time. We are veggie and the food prep and everything was spot on recommended.

Food OK, but location is terrible - OK for a quick snack but not suitable for evening dining. "Restaurant" is situated in very busy open plan shopping mall, so fine as long as you don't mind heaps of shoppers walking past or stopping to look at the food you are eating.

The waitress gave us an expression of disgust only because we were traveling with a child....no wonder the restaurant was empty for most nights!!!!
