Description: Chang Siam Thai Restaurant is set in beautiful countryside in Kerikeri and is just a few minutes walk from the 'world famous in Kerikeri' Rainbow Falls. The Head Chef grew up cooking with his mum in Thailand and he and his Thai team create the most delicious authentic Thai cuisine. The chefs blend authentic Thai flavours to create sensational dishes and offer a “chef’s special” menu, which is immensely popular. There is an extensive vegetarian section and also Thai dishes for young adults. The extensive wine list is professionally matched to Thai food and is competitively priced. Lunches, takeaway and dinners available every day except Tuesday.Service is a top priority for the whole team and the restaurant has already become widely known for both its outstanding food and attentive (but not intrusive) staff. The whole atmosphere is enhanced by a pleasant décor, live jazz music on Friday nights.

“Best service ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 12, 2013

From the minute my husband and I arrived at Chang Siam the service was first class. The door was opened for us on arrival which amazed us and the meal was amazing. Everything was perfect, even someone playing the piano while we enjoyed our delish meal. We were so impressed, that we went back a couple of days later for more yummyness! :)

Our town is so lucky to have such a fabulous Restaurant.

“Great Thai food despite Staff shortage”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

It all seemed a trifle rushed until I found out that funerals had taken the majority of the staff back to Thailand.With only the owner & one waitress & one chef the meal was delicious & well presented.

It was a pity I am unable to return.

“take away”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

we had 1 take away meal while staying at Keri keri and the service was prompt, prices good.
We found the mild dishes way too hot and wouldn't order again without checking,as 2 of my party were unable to eat the dishes.

“Great authentic Thai food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Having lived in Thailand for a few years, I've had a fair bit of the food. I've tried a number of restaurants around New Zealand looking for good Thai food, and the results have been mixed. Chang Siam is up there with the best. Great staff, too, and lovely decor. I'd highly recommend Chang Siam.

“A great addition to Kerikeri's line-upo of restaurants”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 4, 2013

Fabulous, authentic Thai flavours in an interesting line up of dishes coupled with superb service make this one of those places I'm looking forward to going back to try something else.

My only criticism was that the portions sizes are very modest. I suggest that you share 3 dishes between two hungry diners.
