Description: The Taste of Asia in Mount Maunganui, conveniently located right on the main street, with wide doors opening onto the street for alfresco dining. It is the warm and relaxing place where friends get together, where family members come to have a great meal, and where the business community comes to wine and dine. We have four, long-serving, hand chosen authentic Thai chefs, one with 26 years experience, and a further two chefs (two brothers) each with 16 years experience in creating genuine Thai dishes, and they have helped to create our diverse and flavourful menu to suit every customer, from the extra hot dish to the mild vegetarian. Thai food is internationally famous for being healthy. The herbs used in our dishes not only provide unique flavour, but they also have varying degrees of medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Low in calories but rich in taste.

We went for dinner as a couple at 7.30pm on a Saturday evening. The restaurant has been established in the heart of Maunganui Road for many years and is popular for its primarily Thai dishes. Decor is attractive and the restaurant has two dining areas. Not surprisingly for mid evening on a Saturday night when we arrived it was already busy, including at least one hens-night pre-wedding party in the front dining room and a large table of young adults in the back room. Over the course of the evening the restaurant became very loud. The staff were under pressure and service became very slow, although to their credit the staff remained very friendly and attentive (and apologetic). The food was nice although pretty generic. Portion sizes were good.

Tasty Asian food. We were visiting while on a cruise and left a camera at the restaurant and the owner went out of her way to get it to us, even though we had left the country.

Booked three for dinner on a Saturday night and mentioned that it was for a birthday celebration. When we arrived, the staff showed us to our seats and they had decorated our table with folded napkins and sparkles! The wait staff were lovely, food was great (highly recommend the basil chicken), and drinks (try the 'Taste of Asia' cocktail). When the lights were turned down, we thought that it might have been a subtle cue to leave... But the staff came out singing with a surprise birthday dessert! Thanks for a fantastic evening!

Had such an amazing meal here. Arrived on a hotplate, and was full of flavour. Would highly recommend them, and it's one of my favourites here in the bay!
