I bought chicken fried rice from this cafe. Some chicken pieces were a big hard and dry :(, but my colleagues fried rice was nice and yummy.

I have been to all the Thai Chef restaurants in New Zealand and while they all have an excellent menu the Parnell Thai Chef consistently offers well presented and delicious food served with traditional Thai courtesy. Prompt service, well priced and consistently very good dishes.
