Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Our family of 4 recently had a deeply disappointing experience at this restaurant. Unfortunately, our visit was marred by instances of discriminatory treatment. The staff displayed a lack of tolerance and respect, particularly towards our child, who was asked to leave due to making noise....Such behavior is unacceptable, and it greatly overshadowed any positive aspects of our visit. Trigger war if you have anxiety: DO NOT GO THERE ITS A PLACE WHICH IS A DISGRACE ON OUR AUCKLAND RESTURANT COMMUNITY!More

Very tasty authentic Thai food. I was pleasantly surprised with the authenticity and high quality of the food. Plenty of tasty options that are all reasonably priced compared to some places in the village. We have been back several times and used the takeaway option...as well. Would highly recommend this place.More

We have been getting takeaways from Pla Thong regularly for a few years now. I suspect that there has been a change in ownership, but thats only a suspicion The meal we had last night was disappointing. The flavours were bland, the curry was flat...and the stir-fry was very mild and not tasting strongly of any of the key ingredients - both were ordered hot, yet neither was spicy at all. The pad thai was too sweet. The prices have also increased. There is a lot of competition, and restaurants need to do better if they want to remain popular. Will look elsewhere next time.More

To be honest, we’ve chosen Pla Thong because of the immaculate 5 star rating. However after booking a table and seeing the somewhat cheap logo I had second thoughts. But evaporated immediately after stepping into the cool, clean & modern restaurant space. With only a...small number of tables, they made the most of the space and it felt very cosy and welcoming. The staff was very polite and friendly throughout the evening and the service was great. We’ve chosen four different entrees with each having four portions fitting our family of four perfectly. They were all very nice although pretty classic. The mains however all had a modern twist in their presentation while delivering that authentic Thai flavour. We truly enjoyed every bite and it was a wonderful night out - which made you easily forget being in the outskirts of Mount Eden village. When leaving the restaurant we noticed having a flat tyre - and even at that point the friendly ladies in their traditional uniforms wanted to give us a hand changing it ...More

Twas down in Auckland for the weekend and decided to revisit Pla Thong Thai again. We asked for a table by the window and were promptly seated upon arrival. We ordered a lager each as the Wine list was a tad limited and rather expensive....I’ve read that a Pinot Gris or a Reisling compliment Asian meals. We ordered our meals and did not have long to wait even though the restaurant was starting to get busy, with people also coming in for their take away meals during the time we were there. We all pronounced our meals delicious with the vegetables being al dente and perfect. I ordered a spicy green fish curry and my friends ordered mild Pad Prik. All meals were beautifully presented and tasted divine. Will definitely return.More

Located at the suburban end of Mt Eden, Pla Thong offers loads of vege/vegan dishes. Beautiful food, great service, lovely staff. Reasonable prices. Not the cheapest around, but definitely one of the best around. Never had a bad meal there :) Rox :) ‘Legally Blonde...Vegan’ #legallyblondevegan #vegan #tummyfriendlyvegan #ibsvegan #fodmapveganMore

This place has it all. Quality service Anand quality food. The flavours are rich and tasty and the quality and presentation of their food is a step up from the topical Thai restaurant. An absolute gem of a find.

Located just south of Mt Eden village, this is a fantastic little place! Food is divine, staff are lovely, and chef is happy to adapt meals with no onion, no garlic, for the grumpy tummy. We've been several times now, and never had a bad...meal or experience. Totally recommend :) Roxy - Legally Blonde Vegan :) #legallyblondevegan #tummyfriendlyvegan #ibsvegan #fodmapvegan #glutenfreevegan #veganMore

Lovely ambience - don't forget to book as restaurant is quite small. Enjoyed prawn and bacon entree, snapper fillet with black peer sauce and beef. Service fast and efficient. Waitresses all in traditional lovely costumes. Made for a great evening out.

We booked in for dinner tonight and I’m glad we did. Great food (a little spicy but very tasty) and excellent service even with a fully booked meal. Would recommend to anyone looking for a nice meal and great experience.
