We decided to have dinner at Wild Rice with our children to celebrate the start of the holidays. The food was delicious, especially the green curry with salmon and crisp vegetables. Highly recommended. The ambiance is understated and the service is friendly, but a little inexperienced. Will definitely return.

Seemed like the best located Thai restaurant in the "eat strip", and very busy so looked like a good option.
We arrived at around 8pm after booking or table hours earlier, and we were starving!
The smells were awesome and we were very much looking forward to sampling the delicious food.
However, an hour after ordering we were still waiting for our food. By this time we were beyond starving and getting a bit angry.
Upon making the management aware of our situation, we were told they had lost our order. Very frustrated by this time we gave our order again, and were offered 2 complimentary starters while we waited for our order.
To their credit they did their best and the food (eventually) was fantastic - couldn't fault it.
Looked like we weren't the only ones who had a long wait, and if it wasn't worth waiting for the food, I would not recommend this restaurant.
Great place with great food but make sure you give yourself plenty of time...

We visited when renovations works were being done near the restaurant and it was pretty quiet. We were recommended to try this restaurant from a local friend and we enjoyed the food very much. Although we have tasted better Thai cuisine, this is pretty authentic and the curry mutton tasted superb! Their Phad Thai was very good as well. If you are craving for Thai cuisine in Rotorua, this is the place to go!

Worst xmas in wild rice thai! We waited forever for our orders. After 45 minutes the waiter csme by to say that we have to wait for anothet 10 minutes as they mistakenly gave our food to another customers. We just left immediately to go to a nearby resto to feed our poor hungry selves. Wild rice was not even crowded that night. Worst thai resto ever!
