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.

May’s Thai.. for a long time this was the best Thai food in Christchurch, no question!! I’ve not been in several years but I had the crispy pork Pad Thai tonight.. that’s not May’s Thai food. Where are the amazing noodles from a few years ago which held so much flavour and were a dream to eat?? The Crispy pork was perfect.. as is with May’s.. but please please please bring back the noodles from 3 years ago.

Our friends and ourselves have been going to May's for three or four years now on a very regular basis. The food is amazing and the service is really good. Never been disappointed. We have been to other Thai restaurants in NZ and in Bangkok over time, but locally, we always come back to May's. It's as close to being in Thailand as you can get.

Our new favourite restaurant, food is fantastic and great service. Had the pad Thai with crispy pork and green chicken curry. Generous servings felt very satisfied. Already looking forward to our next visit.

Didn't know this place existed until I drove past. So had dinner there service, food all excellent. Nice touch from the waitperson she told us that because they were busy our mains would take a bit longer. No issue with this and the food was worth waiting for. A generous serve of pad thai and drunken spicy noodles. Drunken noodles at medium heat was perfect. This will ne become our go to Thai restaurant.

I went with a friend as a result of a recommendation and it was well worth it. Food was great, everything looked and tasted freshly made, service was good, the food arrived quickly, mango juice was yummm, we had a mixed Entree for 2 and we both had cashew stir fried, chicken and crispy pork with rice, excellent and some to take home for the next day. We will be back.

Quite simply the ultimate in Thai food. Haven’t tasted any better anywhere in NZ. Freshest of ingredients cooked with care. Whilst a dollar or two more expensive and possibly a few minutes more wait … it’s definitely all well worth while.

This used to be our go to place for Thai but we have been here for quite a while. Got a takeaway Saturday night and bit really impressed. The pad Thai was gluggy, my hubby said his green curry was average and my yellow curry had a weird after taste. Really disappointed.

Nestled in a row of busy shops is May's Thai restaurant, with superb quality food, great staff and very reasonable. Sat with a couple of friends putting the world to rights and no one rushing us to move on. Very popular with take away but restaurant was reasonably busy for mid week.

Have been to May's many times, takeaway and dine in. It is good quality suburban Thai. The food again was good, and again a little expensive. The disappointment this time was the use of a watery satay sauce for the fresh spring roles, it killed the freshness of the dish.

On our last night in New Zealand after a 15 day driving trip, we were tired and wanted so good comfort food. When I saw May's, I thought it looked interesting so we drove from our hotel and found the place just opening. My husband got Pad Thai and I got a red curry shrimp dish. Wow, both dishes were excellent and we thoroughly enjoyed them. One of our more memoriable meals. Only thing important to mention is that they do not take credit cards, so have some cash on you. We came real close to having to wash dishes (although we discovered an ATM just a few doors down). We would highly recommend.

Loved the peanuts in the pad thai and absolutely loved the green curry. Moderate level of spiciness (you can choose from mild, moderate or spicy) was really good and spicy. The green curry was so good that the next night we went back for seconds.

As the title says, my wife and I tremendously enjoyed our order of spicy drunken noodles with chicken. We ordered it "medium" spicy and it was certainly on the top end of what she and I can handle (despite having a significant tolerance to heat) so be wary of ordering it too spicy. Again, for us it was perfect and awesomely flavorful. We also enjoyed an order of green curry with chicken. It was tasty and sweet. Reasonable prices. BYO allowed for 2 dollars a head. Great day service. Highly recommend.

We ate here on our last night in New Zealand. The restaurant was mostly full, but we still had extremely fast service! The food was delicious and so fresh!
