“Our fav in Auckland”
Reviewed May 26, 2014 via mobile

Every time we come to Auckland we come to this restaurant in the Wynyard Quarter. We always find the staff friendly & very helpful. My husbands favourite is the sorbet ice cream for desert & mine is the delicious & delicate curry puffs. Very reasonable price as well. Thanks guys
Cheers Liz & Mike

“Yummy, excellent value and friendly staff!”
Reviewed May 18, 2014

This is my new fave in Auckland! The $2 chicken skewers are absolutely divine. The wait staff (the kuyas) were so friendly and the chef was even dancing in the kitchen. Such an awesome place to hangout with friends while enjoying the scene in Wynyard Quarter. Will definitely come back!

“Pass on by”
Reviewed March 14, 2014

Slow service from the kitchen and particularly poor service on the part of our wait staff - no help in describing food or how to order. If you like your Thai food bland- like from a hospital comfort food menu then maybe this could be the place for you. Better Thai food restaurant choices close by, keep looking.

“Good Food, Slow but Friendly Service”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

We called in for a quick weekend lunch recently. We were greeted in a friendly fashion and the drinks list was brought to us promptly, along with a little booklet explaining Thai Street's type of food and dining style.
Our orders were taken in good time, but delivery was very slow.
This type of food is so simple, meals should be available relatively quickly, as it almost always is in other Thai establishments. This slow service was not a function of their being busy, as we were one of only about five tables of customers and our dishes were simply rice, pork or chicken pieces and fresh carrot topping.
Dishes for the two of us were delivered about 5 minutes apart, but we understand that it is customary with Thai that dishes ordered for individual diners tend not to arrive at the same time. They were tasty and well seasoned, but one of us was unable to eat about a third of the pork pieces, as they were just skin and fat, which might be typical of this Thai dish, but quite unpalatable and unhealthy to NZ taste.
One wine on their wine list was in fact a New Zealand wine, rather than from Germany as listed - this was just a typo and the waiter to whom we mentioned this was very personable and appreciative of our comment, making a note to have it corrected.
So in conclusion, staff were nice and the food reasonable, but there is definitely a problem with the timing of service that lets the overall experience down.
Thai "Street" in its booklet suggests street food style, but the slow service contradicts this intention. Other reviews support this observation of slow service, so it was not just circumstances at the time of our visit but appears to be an ongoing issue.
Hopefully this will be addressed shortly, so that we will consider returning.
