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.

This was by far one of the best Thai restaurants I've been to in a long time - well-presented, delicious food, served quickly with impeccable service from the friendly waitstaff. Everything we ordered was delicious, but especially recommend the green curry (the best, the beef...salad, and the fresh spring rolls. Large portion sizes and just so tasty. Would 100% recommend and will go back if we are ever in Taupo again!More

My son and I cannot recommend this fantastic restaurant any higher! We dined there this week (20th Jan 2024) and we were thrilled with the service, quality of the food, the cleanliness and whole ambience added to our fabulous dining experience. We will certainly be...calling there again on our way home and we are very much looking forward to it.More

This was absolutely the worst Thai food we've ever eaten, and we eat Thai food alot. I don't know if the usual chef was having the day off but our food looked nothing like any of the photos on here. 3 of the tiniest spring...rolls came on a plate with nothing else whatsoever and then the a greasy, flavorless Pad See Ew and a luke warm red curry with globs of oil floating in it and about 3 tiny pieces of brocoli (this was the vegetable option) and the tiniest portion of rice we've ever been served in a resteraunt. We ended up paying for 2 drinks and the grossly overpriced sping roll starter and leaving the restaurant without eating or paying for the other 2 dishes. Totally rubbish experience.More

The serving size for both the appetisers & the mains was VERY SKIMPY for the price: like 40% less food than other Thai places here in NZ. The food was delicious, but after my appetiser & main, I was left feeling hungry since servings so...small. That is ridiculous. Also, our waiter REEKED of cologne. Any time he came near us we were exposed to a cloud of cologne that made my eyes & face burn. Wait staff should be scent free as to not overwhelm their customers who actually want to smell & taste their food & not his cologne. It was so bad that I thought we might not be able to stay. I spoke to him & let him know that we did not appreciate being overwhelmed by his cologne & that he should not be wearing fragrance to work. The fragrance industry is woefully under regulated & man made fragrance is filled with toxic chemicals. Peer reviewed research shows 1 in 3 people are made I’ll by man made fragrance (myself included) & this large group of paying customers avoid businesses that expose them to these chemicals without consent. I won’t even go there re all the fragrance in their loo. If you do not know about the dangers of these chemicals, you can check out the free fact sheets from the top scientists at the Uni of Melbourne online Dr Anne SteinnemanMore

The service was very friendly and helpful. The food - fried rice, curry and a roti, was wonderful at a reasonable price. Would definitely go again.

Excellent food - I had prawn soup and Rotis - my wife had the scallops. Beautiful flavours, fresh and clean tastes- superb attention to detail. We really like Thai food and have eaten at a fair few. This is by far the best. Decor is...tasteful too. When you see Escoffier books in the wee library nook there is fair chance they know their food.More

The service is lovely and the food devine, with the desserts being especially so. Honestly, if you visit Taupo without dining here, you have missed an opportunity.

Lovely friendly service, so clean and tidy. Basic thai menu but meals were very tasty and fresh. Drinks were served super fast. A few locals there which is always a sign of a good restaurant.
