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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This restaurant was closed, when I visited it. They are not open beetween 2.30pm and 5pm. No other thai restaurant was open that time. I was walked to 4 of them. Ended up to have the best burger in town. Just let you know!

Worst curry ever. Expensive and tasteless with Wattie‘s frozen vegetables. Ordinary rice was charged on top. No basmati or other nice one.

Gorgeous food, everything was super fresh, veg in the curries was still crunchy and good portion size. Nice wee atmosphere too, even for a Monday night. Service was also very friendly!

Food was tasty but not spicy. Ample portion size, all served with a smile. I enjoyed a sweet and sour pork with crunchy vegetables and boiled rice. I'm not local but will come here again when I return to Taupo.

We enjoyed a great dinner here tonight and would recommend this restaurant to family and friends - great food, portion sizes were perfect for our meals ordered - a Yellow Thai chicken curry and a crispy Pork cashew veggie stir fry - both meals were...delicious and highly recommend. Very polite and attentive service in a warm and friendly environment. Such super polite staff and really tasty food. Highly recommend, we will definitely be back! (Footnote to owner: recommend considering including steamed rice with dishes and perhaps only charging extra for coconut rice as an option. Trust this suggestion helps.)More

Good service, great food, we really enjoyed it. Very spacious restaurant. We could not quite finish the dinner and they happily provide a container to take the surplus home to enjoy next day

Not a good authentic massaman curry in my opinion , dissapointing , can't tell you last time I had a proper authentic massaman Thai curry , with big chunks of juicy stringy beef , thick massaman curry sauce , the one I had here had...wisened up bits of beef , when you could find them , anaemic sauce,poor representation of massaman curry indeed, thought meal a bit overpriced at $40 a head , one entree , 3 main courses , 3 rice , obviously over priced screwage , sorry corkage , why do restaurants rip you off with corkage, it's an archaic practice , if you want customers on yr seats do free corkage for goodness sakes, I wouldn't rush back here quite frankly 🍷☹️dissapointing .More

Restaurant was nearly empty but set up well for many potential diners. Menu selections were good and courses arrived promptly. Quality is great and very authentic.

Not overly busy, but always has wonderful meals - the best Thai in Taupō and miles around. They also do all their menu as takeaway. If you like Pad Thai, it has a perfect level of sweetness.

I was pleasantly surprised by this restaurant, decor wise I would be shocked if it had been updated since opening. The food however came out quickly and was full of flavour, a good portion size and a great meal on a winters evening.

Squid, satay chicken and samosa. Two hours later...we returned for our mains. Good service great food.More
