“WE EXPECTED PROVINCIAL THAI FODDER”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

Oh how wrong we were, the food was fantastic. It's not starched white table cloths or linen napkins, but that doesn't matter when the meal was exceedingly good, and the portions were very generous. We love our Thai hot, the owner, Tamara was a little concerned about this, but we assured her we definately wanted lots of chilli, so she obliged. Poor lady was amazed to see us two kiwi's enjoying it so hot. Alway's remember, if your Thai isn't hot enough, order a wee bowl of prik-nam-pla (chillis in fish sauce) to accompany the meal. Thank you Tamara for a truly lovely meal.

“The BEST Thai we have ever had!!!”
Reviewed February 27, 2012

We can't stop going back to Thai Lemongrass.

Having eaten at Thai restaurants all throughout NZ and having had wonderful Thai food in Bangkok, Phuket and Koh Samui - this is one of our favourites. The food here is just as great, if not better than the food we get in Thailand itself. The staff are fabulous and so friendly.

The dishes are well worth the money. The flavours are beautiful and authentic and cooked exactly how we like it everytime ( I'm a mild gal, partner likes the food HOT!!!)

Would highly recommend it.

“A little bit of Auckland in Waihi”
Reviewed November 29, 2011

Just moved last year to Waihi from Auckland and didn't think I would find this little gem on my doorstep. Beautiful fresh food, friendly service, have become a regular. From the road it's not much to look at and could be missed would highly reccommend you STOP and try this authentic Thai food, you won't regret it.
