Good food, reasonable prices, friendly staff. Soups were a taste sensation. Green curry average, pork and ginger dish fantastic.

“Only if you need something spicy”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012 via mobile

Loved the servers, very helpful, however 2/3 items ordered were average or below.
Loved: Tom yum soup (prawns are done absolutely perfect)

Avoid at all costs: green curry. Got ingredients totally wrong. One of few dishes in Thai cuisine one can go wrong with.

If you are spice lover do let them know. It is made for bland palette.

“Decent Thai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2012

The food was quite salty and i wouldn't say that its good value either (this is coming from my chinese malaysian background), aside from being slightly on the salty side it was quite nice tastes.

The atmosphere is nice.

The service was good from some waitress but average from another waitress, maybe because she was young and inexperienced and seemed to be stressed out about something.

Will probably try The Amazing Thai the next time we are in Rotorua as this was recommended by the accommodation we were staying at.

Overall average - good place to dine.
