We really enjoyed our visit with friends and family. The staff were great. we arrived after a 5 hour journey just before closing time and were served with courtesy and friendship. The food was as great as always. I loved my pork with ginger. We will always dine at at Thai Delight and look forward to a branch opening in our home town. My only complaint is that there is no phone number on the web site.

My partner and I have Thai food all the time in Sydney, and I were expecting nice food from this lovely decorated Thai restaurant. I have to say that the decoration and the service were fantastic! However the food were very disappointing.

We ordered 'Tom Yum Noodle Soup' and 'Spicy Chicken Delight'. But the noodle soup were just like chinese wonton noodle soup with light sour and spicy spices, but without wonton. And the Spicy Chicken Delight is like a spicy soup with veges and chicken in it (too much sauce), we couldn't taste any Thai ingredients, but Chinese kind of tastes. Its just tastes like something we could cook at home, but Chinese style.

Maybe its a bad day for the restaurant, or the head chefs were sick, but we were hoping to get better Thai food than that, after all these beautiful reviews and recommendations from the locals! Keep up and great reputations, and I hope your food will be better soon!!

This Thai was well presented and clean, the service attentive but unobtrusive, and the menu choices good. Athough the Tom Yum was underspiced, the flavour was good, and the ginger chicken was delicious, not spicy but the ginger flavour was perfect. Even though we arrived after 9.30pm on a Tuesday nigght, there was no hint of 'cleaning up' or wishing us to leave, as we have experienced in cafes around 4pm in Taupo, where the floor is being vacuumed under your nose! All in all, recommended.

The usual range of Thai dishes competently done and enjoyable but compared to similar Australian Thai restaurants, the level of chili and Thai herbs such as kaffir lime appears to be toned down for local/tourist tastes and is very low. For example, a dish of stir fried duck with bamboo shoots and other vegetables had good flavour but had virtually no chili content for a dish described as Spicy Duck. While licensed, byo wine at a charge of $5 per bottle is allowed so buying a couple of interesting bottles of NZ wine from Scenic Cellars in Taupo and taking them is a good option. Service is competent and prompt.

We have eaten at this restaurant several times over the years and found it excellent. However on the last visit, whle the service was still good, the food quality seemed to have deteriorated and we left somewhat disappointed.
