“A good Thai restaurant here”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 3, 2013

Despite the location which makes you think it's a bit touristy, this is actually a good Thai restaurant that I would be happy to return to again when next in Orewa.

“Quick and tasty Thai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 19, 2013

A recent family holiday to new Zealand saw us make our first stop in Orewa. We were all a bit tired and looking for a quick but tasty meal.
We decided Thai was the choice for us. No shortage of Thai restaurants in New Zealand we noticed.
Good menu selection, good drink selection. Nice enough decor and atmosphere. I had the hot hot chicken. It was spicy and hot hot. Very tasty and the local beer that I chose to accompany (Tui pale ale) made for a very satisfactory outcome. The rest of the family also very impressed.
Highly recommended if you like Thai food.

“A great find in Orewa!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 3, 2012

If you are reading this review you obviously enjoy Thai Food. and whats not to like? We stumbled accross this restaurant returning from a trip to the Bay of Islands. Our motel recommended it to us and we can see why. The food is delicious the menu offers plenty of choice and the service ...well as you would expect from the Thai's is very good. It is a BYO and licenced and they run a very busy takeout also which does not take away from the very plesant enviroment of the actual restaurant. We enjoyed our first visit so much that we have just returned there after driving from Tauranga (2.5hr's) picking up some friends, driving another 30min's and introducing them to the establishment. As I expected the five of them were also very impressed. 3 of us ate seafood last night and I am happy to say all the seafood was absolutely fresh (if not so i would have known in 20minutes after consumption!). One of our party was also glueton intolerant and they we able to accommodate this with no fuss at all. The prices averaged around $20-$21 for a main and $8-9 for entree. The entree sizes are good and the main sizes are very generous . There certainly would be enough to share if you were prepared to! There are plenty of non spicy options if you are not a fan of spice and if you are vegetarian you will not go hungry here! We have been to Thailand on several occasions and can honestly say the Thai Orewa is the real McCoy. It was worth our long drive and we will definately be returning. Wheelchair accessible, plenty of parking on the street. Open for lunch Wed-Fri 11.30am to 2pm and dinners 7 nights 5pm on. If you have a larger party it might pay to book as they always seem busy (tel# 09 426 9711). Afterwards you may enjoy a stroll on the lovely beach as its just over the road!
