We have visited Phiket Thai several times and the quality of the food and service are consistently good. It is BYO which allows for an inexpensive night out.

Went with a large group and must say was pleasantly surprised, my only criticism was the small amount of prawns in my Prawn Fried Rice with vege main. The entrees were very good size and lovely flavour with meat actually in the Curry Puffs. Service was extremely good and supplied with a smile. Will be back.

Have been here a few times. Always friendly service. Food is soo good. Better than I had in Thailand as more Veges and tastier etc. I had chicken with cashew nuts and my friend and her daughter had pad Thai and loved. So good. Yummy. Always be back. Thanks 😊

This is a clean warm suburban restaurant and takeaway on the Papanui roundabout, serving great Thai food. The staff are friendly, the food is consistently good. Our party of 4 occasionally order the $29 per head set menu to share, and we swap the pork dish for chicken. We ask for only 2 main dishes to be brought out each... More

Lovely food in a clean, warm and friendly atmosphere. Our waitress was the Bangkok born daughter of the owners. She was friendly and attentive of our needs and coordinated our kids' takeaway order perfectly when our dine in meals were finished. Tom Yum soup was the star of the show but they happily created a special meal for my wife... More

Popped in for a meal on the go on a Wednesday. They had a $20 special for -"a full main, 3 piece entree and starter soup. Such good value. Delicious curry puffs and chicken satay, followed by mildly spiced soup and then delicately spiced massaman with steamed rice. Good portions, no challenge with degree of spice, good service. Byo only.

I've eaten here many times over the years and this is my first review; I've finally been compelled to write as I was so impressed with the service & food we received last Friday. Phoned up and made a last minute booking before heading to the movies; the solo waitress had a pretty much full house & was attentive &... More

Dinner tonight was fabulous! It's so nice to have authentic cuisine from honest hard working people! The Tom Kha soup was just what I needed for the weather. The chicken pad Thai and green curry were also delightful!

Nothing exceptional but good honest food in pleasant surroundings. Pleasant staff willing to help. We were a party of six and there was a big delay between receiving the first meal and the last
