“Quite Nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 21, 2014 via mobile

Despite some of the recent review we tried this place and found it to be quite nice. Food was tasty. Service fine...although they did forget an entree that can happen. Overall it was a good experience. Not quite a 4 rating but good decent Thai food

“Give it a miss”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 19, 2014

We arrived late in Rotorua on Good Friday after a five hour traffic jam drive from Auckland. We were tired and hungry. Very little was open. We saw The Thai Restaurant and thought we'd get a good meal. Seriously, when is Thai food ever bad? We were wrong.
I had stir fried rice beef. A basic. It was greasy and the beef was over cooked. My wife had Pad Thai. Another basic. She couldn't finish it.
Service was adequate. The wine list was OK. It needed to be.
An uninspiring experience.

“Disappointing”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014

An early dinner...three patrons only rattling around...both starters were as usual well prepared and tasty. Both mains were disappointing: poor and unauthentic ingredients, poorly cooked and presented without flourish. Afraid we won't be back.

“TRY THAI- BUT PERHAPS ELSEWHERE?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 7, 2014

Sorry but perhaps we went on the normal chef's day off. There was nothing very special about what was served. The prices were reasonable had the food been likewise. The decor is less than impressive - a large run-of-the-mill shopping unit with some inclined trellis hanging from the ceiling. The restaurant on the edge of the central area's evening venues - and you might want to look elsewhere first. Could be good for large parties on a night out.

“YUM YUM YUM!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2014

Our group had a very tasty meal here, staff were friendly and helpful, nice atmosphere, décor and great food. Prices were average. Everyone enjoyed their meals. Unfortunately due to "Eat Street" being established across the road most of the tourist are directed there but to eat but I would definitely say do not overlook this place as the food was superior.
