Dined one evening with family at this restaurant after having had a previous enjoyable dining experience here on a previous trip last year. This restaurant maintains it's consistent high standard with friendly, attentive service, well presented dishes and superb quality Thai food. All members of our group relished out respective varied entrees and mains. Portion sizes were generous and each main was accompanied by exquisitely steamed rice. The tableware, cutlery, and furnishings were clean. The background Thai music was unobtrusively low in volume and did not interfere with conversation. This restaurant is BYO and staff happily supply appropriate glassware or bottle openers as required. Limited parking is possible on Papanui Road directly outside the Phuket Thai but parking is available at the side or rear of the restaurant.

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 time, gives us time to savour and enjoy the different flavours. Great value and BYO. If you enjoy Thai food, you will love this restaurant.

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 who never orders as per the menu and did so with a smile.

Much loved by Papanui locals.

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 & polite. The food was outstanding (but then it's consistently good anyway). It's not the flashest palace in the world but is clean & tastefully decorated & the food is well priced & delicious.
