Wednesday night businesss meant quickly looking for somewhere to eat. I remember coming here many years ago (way before apps were invented) and it was good then. Pleasantly surprised that it is still the case. We walked in to a busy but not crowded restaurant and we seated straight away, someone came with water straight away. Our order was taken... More

The food was great. The tom yum soup is the one you should try. The staff at the front desk was really friendly and helpful.

We had a range of food including starters, one of the party had one of the soups and knew that it was medium/hot in spice range....what followed after... More

We have dined here on a number of occasions, and the food, service and value for money is all very good. However the restaurant badly needs some acoustic treatment, because it can be extremely noisy. On our most recent visit there was a party of young woment at a nearby table who were having a great time, but they were... More

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
