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!

This is my go-to place with my dad, we love the staff who are always friendly and the food is incredible! The best Thai food I’ve had in New Zealand, the flavours are great and the meat is always cooked perfectly, never had a bad...meal or experience at this lovely place. 12/10 recommend. Absolutely brilliant.More

Pretty average food sadly. Great atmosphere and great service. Drinks were nice but sadly we got the fish dish and both of us got bits of fish that weren’t fresh and tasted fishy enough not to eat. Really unfortunate cos the flavours seemed like they’d...work if it was fresh enough. Unfortunately our friend asked for mild and her dish was to spicy for her to eat too. Just a bit disappointing and with so many amazing restaurants in New Plymouth we would likely not have another go here.More

The venue is enormous and beautifully decorated, however the service was lacking. There's smiley service which is great, but we felt as if we were being laughed at every time we asked a question about the menu. Once is okay, but several times we were...laughed at. The food wasn't very good either. Dsaippointing really as the venue is really quite impressive when you enter.More

We've eaten in-house and had takeaway multiple times from Thai Chef and have never been disappointed - ever. Have eaten as a family of three and had work place social events here too. Lovely, kind staff and we think it's great.
