Have eaten here numerous times and the food is always fabulous. You don't have to get dressed up to eat here, and they offer a takeaway service also. A must if you like Thai food

I used to eat at Thai Issan back 10 or more years ago and have to say that it was one of the best Thai restaurants I ever visited. Guests used to be greeted by a number of Thai waitresses wearing authentic Thai dress.
The food had an amazing taste and it was very good value for money. Even though the restaurant is pretty small it had a good atmosphere overall.
A few years ago they changed ownership and things went downhill very quick. I moved to Kumeu in 2009 and started going to Thai Taste that is excellent.
I recently moved back to the shore and decided in going with my wife to the Thai Issan for Valentines.
No greetings anymore...just one lady running around like crazy taking orders and serving guests. It took forever for the food to arrive and it was tasteless.
At the counter a grumpy guy who probably could not even speak English.
It is a shame because it was an excellent restaurant on the shore but will have to find another place to try Thai food.

My husband and I decided to try this little thai place on hinemoa. We got takeaway, prawn toast, fish cakes, phad thai, beef masaman. We were extremely let down with all of our dishes as they were tasteless& underseasoned. We were surprised with the lack of herbs regularly used in most thai dishes like coriander! Our masaman was watery and very sweet like it had two much palm sugar.

We wouldnt go here again unfortunately and its a real shame.

am led to understand that this restaurant changed ownership fairly recently.
It is a rather small restaurant seating only around 30 people and was rather busy, though the atmosphere was very cosy and the staff very accomodating and knowledgeable.
We opted for an assorted Entree for 3 which was well presented and a tasty variety. 3 different mains which we shared ranged from spicy to mild and were of very Authentic taste ( having compared with other Thai Restaurants visited).If you are loking to liven your tastebuds, this Restaurant is a very good experience and we have no qualms recommending it.
This is a BYO restaurant so you are not limited in your own choice of wines>
