We visited Thai Fusion(ex Chili Planet) because of past experience. The staff were friendly and helpful. My husband had the curried lamb shank. Great flavour and tender meat. I had fish topped with a garlic/chilli/coriander mix - very hot but full of flavour. The restaurant was busy and seemed quite popular. I would go back as he food tasted very... More

Chilli Planet has recently been renovated. . There may also have been a change of ownership (not sure). With the renovations have come price increases, and reductions in serving sizes and quality of the meals. What used to be a pretty standard Thai noodle place with some pretty decent dishes and good value for money is now aspiring to a... More

One of the only place in Dunedin that does reasonably priced Thai food. Nice restaurant and good food. Not like the other fake Thai food you see in Dunedin. A good lunch spot.

Tidy place with an average ambience. Food was OK but could be the item that we ordered. Presentation was excellent. Friendly staff with suggestions for menu items and good knowledge about food and attractions around the town.

Service- ok Food- ok Atmosphere- ok I wouldn't suggest coming here if you have high expectations. Luckily it's priced accordingly. I had the satay chicken and found it not too bad.

I booked for 16 and instead came with 20 people and I found the waitress to be very accommodating, adding additional tables and chairs with no fuss. Food was good and even better than it is one of the cheaper Thai BYO options in central Dunedin. Besides the slight delay with getting the food out, it was great evening.

Service was friendly but a little slow. Food was alright. Portion wasn't the biggest but it was enough to fill you up.

The meal was average at best, chipped plates, service dreadful even although it was almost empty. Would not recommend, heaps of other lovely Thai restaurants in Dunedin

Drove up from Invercargill for a weekend and had our first meal at this place. I ordered a stir fire meal, vegetables are not fresh, taste like frozen package from supermarket. My partner had Tom yum soup and it's quiet nice she said.

I've just come out of chilli planet. I'm a local and can safely say Dunedin is not good at Thai food but here's hoping ... And so I tried again. I could really rip into this place from its blank faced waitresses to its soggy noodles and stodgy rice but I won't I just ask that if you are a... More
