Don't let the location and decor put you off, the food here is outstanding. Easily the best Thai food in Hamilton, certainly up there with the best I've had anywhere. We had a selection of takeaway meals off the board and all were excellent. Spice...levels were also spot on. We ordered a mild for the kids, medium for the wifey and hotter for me - and they were perfect. Happily, even the mild dish had tones of flavour, so don't feel you need to have face-melting chilli to get any taste from the food. It took some time to cook, probably 20minutes sitting in the very dreary waiting area, so bring a book or phone your order through. You can see the chef at work and everything looks clean and tidy with all the food kept in airtight containers. Really friendly staff and good value (I think $15-$20 per dish with rice included) I can't vouch for the fish 'n chips side of it, but why would you order that when the real food is so good. This is our new favourite place for Thai.More

I have travelled a lot and being an Asian....love my Asian food and I love cooking. I came because I saw your great reviews and needed to try your meals out. Sad to say ...the fried rice I had was soggy. Masaman curry and other...dishes were overly sweet. Maybe it was a bad night for you but I will come back again to try it out. Hopefully it will be better.More

Ordered on the phone, order was ready not long after arrived. Pad thai, black bean & the cashew were what we had. Would reccomend you to try this place if you like thai.

Best Thai and customer service in Hamilton. Better than restaurants in the CBD. I was very suprised and won't go anywhere else now. :)

5 mins fromUlster Street Motels - we had green curry and curry balls - beautiful -$21 total was ample for 2 of us. Nothing fancy just a basic takeaway shop - does burgers as well.

It was one of those nights when neither of us could be bothered cooking, so off we went to Thai & Kai.. Burgers and fries was what our tummies were after and this is what we thoroughly enjoyed. Amazing chicken gourmet burgers which satisfied our...hunger and then some. Great service and a fresh and clean kitchen.More

Hadn't been for awhile but happy to say I still rate this joint for their Thai takeaway. Fresh ingredients and super tasty. Re-heated some leftovers today and really enjoyed again. Don't forget the curry puffs!
