Description: With a passion for Thai food and excellent customer service, Thai Thani pride themselves on fresh, exotic flavours, and delicious Thai food served in the restaurant, for takeaway or delivered to your home. With experienced and talented Thai Chefs and an extensive menu including over 35 mains, you'll want to enjoy these delightful dishes over and over again. The owners of Thai Thani lived in Thailand for 9 years and wanted to share their passion for fresh and healthy Thai food with others. We are fully licensed and also offer BYO wine. Thai Thani is located in Fashion Island - a popular outdoor shopping centre full of fashion stores so when you are needing a break from shopping pop in for a tasty lunch between 11.30am and 2.30pm or for dinner from 5pm. Or collect takeaways on your way home! This ever popular Thai restaurant has a relaxed atmosphere perfectly suited to the Papamoa Beach laid back lifestyle. Call in and visit us - you are always welcome. We also have a "sister" restaurant Thai Thani 2 in Wharf Street, Tauranga just off the Strand - so if you are visiting Tauranga be sure to call in and savour the same delightful Thai food as here. Our Tauranga restaurant offers dine-in at fully licensed premises for your dining pleasure, takeaway and home delivery.

“A little gem”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2013 via mobile

I've seen this place a million times bit never been, decided to take my parents for dinner. It was great! The food was delicious, and very quick. The service was great, friendly and helpful. The resturant is really cute and welcoming. The only downside is the eat in price is a little expensive for the food you get. Overall a great meal, will definitely go back!

“My favourite restaurant in the Bay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2013

I love Thai Thani and I have introduced so many of my friends and family to the restaurant as well! It doesn't matter if you show up at 10pm at night without a booking, the staff will always be polite and friendly and happy to receive your business! It's BYO and as the dishes are really reasonable, this makes for a cheap night out! The food is delicious, the service is wonderful and the decor is very traditional. I love this restaurant!

“Always tasty, quick and good value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

We eat here probably once a month. With BYO we only usually pay just over $50 for 2 people. The service is always quick and efficient and if you want quick you can be in and out in under an hour. The food is great. They seem be in the process of improving the decor, which is good as when we first started going here it was a little scruffy. Keep up the good food Thai Thani. We believe in supporting local business if it's good and it is good and getting better. Try it!
