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.

Thankfully we managed to get our order in before the kitchen closed. I had visited once before and the food was SO amazing that I made sure to make a special stop when I was passing through again. So pleased that I did. The food...continues to be amazing! We had a few vegetarian dishes and a chicken dish. Heaps of food and it was prepared very quickly. I will definitely make sure to come in again.More

We were the only diners in the restaurant which was really surprising as the food is so good. All four of us enjoyed a 2 course meal. The Thom Yum soup was spicy but delicious and the mixed entree plate for two was lovely. Our...highlight was definitely the Mossaman curry ( we had prawns) it was utterly delicious with just the right amount of spice, our Pad Thai was not the best so probably best to opt for one of the curries. The presentation was top notch with the rice beautifully served. The wine List is very small with only a few wines by the glass but the food more than made up for it. The service was very fast and friendly, would definitely recommend itMore

I love this establishment and come regularly, especially when I have friends and family visiting. Never fails to deliver the most amazing dishes and I am slowly trying them all. Do adore the ambience and the wonderful, humble manager Nusara. Highly recommended!!!

Husband and I went here on an evening with terrible weather and the place was empty, so we were a little worried. The food was delicous. Chicken and cashew sauce was to die for. Only down side was the atmosphere, the place really need a...spruce and had a damp smell about it, but dont let that turn you off if you love Thai and are after a good feed.More

We love Thai food in general. But this food was terrible. Positive: We ordered online and it was straightforward. The food arrived fast. Negative: roasted duck curry (runny, duck with cartilage and plenty of fat, taste was decent), corn cake (floury), spring rolls(tasted like that...oil has been used for a year), Pad Thai Noodle with beef (a very intense flavour very unpleasant). Very disappointed!More

Friendly service - cost was reasonable and the ability to bring byo wine was appreciated as we needed to finish off our fridge before heading home But, from the perspective of someone who has spent more than 12 months living and holidaying in Thailand over...the past 40 years I found the food very average and tame as the flavours had no real depth or body Spring rolls - were ok Curry puffs - needed to be cooked a little longer as the puff was soft Pad Thai - bland Green curry - watery with no real depth of flavour The satay dish was a new one on me - vegs were nice and sauce OK but again dish lacked the typical Thai punch of flavourMore

Honestly one of the most delicious Thai meals we’ve ever had. All of our meals (4 pax) were different and absolutely scrumptious. Highly recommended. I can’t wait to go back when next in Rotorua.

Worst Thai ever. Would not recommend. The money bags were dry and bland. The Pad Thai was absolutely disgusting! Worst we have ever had. It was stodgy and bland. We could not bring ourselves to eat it and we left hungry. We were the only...customers in at the time and we were never checked on. When we complained about the Pad Thai the waitress took it to the kitchen and ate some and came back and said it tasted fine and that was it. We had a chicken vegetable stir fry - it was half a plate of onions. Absolutely gutted given the reviews on here we thought we were guaranteed a good dinner out. Avoid.More

We had such tasty food. Entre and mains. The atmosphere & music was peaceful& authentic. We knew it would be good when we saw Thai people going in to eat! I think as we were European they don't make the food too spicy, but they...will if you ask. I have a food allergy and they were also knowledgeable and made sure I wasn't having anything I would react to. The lady serving us was lovely and checked we were happy with everything.More
