Great dinner as there were eight of us in our party. Our entrees arrived super fast and even faster was the mains even before some entrees were finished. Drinks were fast as well so a great night in all, can't wait til our next visit.

We had a very nice dinner here. The service was lovely, the food tasty and reasonably priced. I was brought the wrong wine to start with, but this was quickly rectified and staff were very apologetic.

Can't say I would go back here, dish did not seem authentic and very watery. Was not happy with meal at all.

We only had two dishes between us - service was quick but oh so disappointing... Chicken laab was average, beef massaman curry lacked flavour and was watery. Don't bother with Thai Tahuna when there are a couple of other Thai options in Nelson

Food was yum and good value, service was average and the restaurant itself is a little dated. Popular with takeaways that arent seperate from the tables, so would have orders and number being shouted out all the time and while we were there we had a small group hooting around the bar while they waited for their bag of goodies.

This is a lovely, clean and nice ambient Thai restaurant, central to the beach with plenty of parking out the front during the day. My family and I dined for lunch with hubby ordering the green curry and myself and children ordering the stir fry. The meals were served quickly and looked appealing to the eye with a excellent price... More

We tried a few of the local restaurants during our stay and this was our favourite. Delicious food for a great price.
