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 usual Thai place was closed, so we tried here. What a delight. There were heaps of pieces of meat in each dish, and the flavors were so good..... We'll be back

Hi I’ve been coming to Thai Chef for many years now and I’ve always purchased the Laksa which I enjoy every time, however I rang and placed my order today 17/10/2023 for lunch so I paid $37.00 for 2 Laksa took my food home and...to my disappointment there was no spring onions no crushed nuts no lemon wedge no tofu and to top it off only half the sauce was given, so I rang the store immediately to be told that they don’t put the stuff in the Laksa so totally disappointed if I can upload photos I willMore

We were delighted to find that Thai Chef was open again in New Plymouth! Having had great meals here with family in the past it was great to go again and it did not disappoint with an excellent and tasty meal.

This is a wonderful Thai restaurant. The decor is nice, the staff are so lovely and the food is delicious. I had the Mussamun curry and it was so filling and tasty. The pieces of beef were tender and ample. My partner had the Sweet...Piglet which he really enjoyed. We are not into hot, spicy food so both of these dishes were perfect. The lovely gentleman in charge( could be the owner) came and asked if everything was fine with our meal which we really appreciated. Well worth the cost for an enjoyable, delicious mealMore

We absolutely loved our takeout. We had Beef Penang and Pork Belly and Beans! I thought it was good value. Napier Thai Chef needs to up its service with quality food to match New Plymouth!

We dined for dinner at this restaurant because of its trip advisor ratings but it was not up to recent reviews. Firstly there was a sign up to say they were booked out (we had booked) and another saying they were short staffed. Fine no...problem we can accomodate this. The restaurant was not busy but takeaways were active. After 15 minutes we had to go and asked for wine glasses for our BYO wine. After 30 minutes we had to get up again and ask for someone to take our order. We were watching the two active restaurant staff standing at the bar taking and not looking after their patrons. The meal arrived and it was edible just. The pork was like leather. Not a memorable night out.More

We had a great meal here for really good value. I requested a small amount of tofu for my vegetarian meal as often I end up with lots of tofu and very few vegetables - the dish came out with a little tofu, and ample...fresh vegetables with exactly the right amount of heat. Hubs ordered a pepper beef dish and was delighted there was fresh peppercorns included rather than a slurry sauce. We found the portions were generous, and the service friendly and efficient. We will return when in New Plymouth if the opportunity presents.More

Great service, incredible food. Staff were all very friendly and decor very traditional. Some of the food items are curiously named if dining with younger children beware but highly recommend.

Best Thai restaurant in New Plymouth hands down. Whether ordering takeaway or dining in, you're guaranteed a mouth watering meal cooked by their very talented Thai chefs. My favorite dishes are the suicide bomber chicken and the royal panang chicken, YUM!
