I would think again when thinking about visiting aroy, the food was okay but when we were accused of being racist it was taken too far…

One of the staff called us racist, which was the most embarrassing thing ever. We were not once racist, one of us was just talking about their trip to Fiji. Would not recommend.

Quiet restaurant which was nice. Service was good and the food was tasty, well presented and good portion for reasonable price. However, we noticed the corkage fee is ridiculously over priced $10 PER bottle. Thankfully, we didn’t need that service as they are licensed.

If you are looking for authentic Thai this not the one. Food was more to sweet side. Maybe cater more for locals to eat. Portion was normal not as aspected. Price was normal too not attractive. However service was good.

…even if I have to walk across town, it’s worth it every time. Drunken noodles and Tom Kia are my favorites. Portions are large, especially for the price. Staff are always very kind and accommodating. I often get take away and it’s still piping hot...by the time I get back to the hotel. Found this place 6 years ago and it’s STILL my go to spot in chch for Thai. Thank you!More

We were going to go into the casino for a meal but instead met some family over the road at Aroy Thai. This was a great choice. Excellent selection on menu. Good service and excellent prices. Very nice food. A little hidden gem in the...cbd.More

I ordered several items via Uber Eats but the restaurant forgot an entree item. I called and the man couldn’t figure out how to give me a refund. So I said please just deliver the entree now and he said it was too far (I...live 10minutes from the restaurant)!??! He asked to call me back 2 times because he had no idea what to do and the manager was often shouting at him in the background. I said that everyone makes mistakes, that’s not a problem, but if you can’t/won’t fix it, then that’s not ok! There was no resolve. They just ripped me off $12 - not a huge amount but if they do this to many (which by the looks of the other reviews is common) then that’s not good business.More

I went with a group of friends last night for a byo dinner. They gave me wrong order which I was allergic to after telling me it was the correct meal when I asked. Went and asked for a refund for the meal I had...two mouthfuls of then had a allergic reaction to, and the manager blamed the mix up on my friends and I even though I specifically asked the waitress if it was the correct meal. Ending up getting a $10 refund for the $30 I spent there even though I ate next to nothing. They also forgot to bring out a meal to some of my friends and refused to give it to them when they went and asked about it. Overall the service was terrible, with both issues being blamed on us even though it was clearly ahoy Thai’s fault. Some staff members where very angry even though we were not in the wrong. Will never eat there again.More

Terrible experience with non friendly, rude and stubborn staff. When ordering food, my friend who is highly allergic to egg ordered an egg free dish for obvious reasons. When it was brought to the table they reassured her that the dish was hers and was...egg free. Later, we discovered that the dish did in fact have egg in it which was very scary and worrying. Upon discovering this information, we did not receive much sincerity and only a half refund which I believe is a very poor way of apologising. We also ordered and paid for 2 dishes that never arrived, and then were accused of lying about not receiving them. Overall the staff were rude and I did not enjoy this experience. Would not recommend.More

Good lunch menu with lots of options. Shared the deep fried squid to start which was tasty and tender,it came with a spicy dipping sauce. My prawn tom yum was full of flavour and served with rice and my husband enjoyed his pad thai. All...meals seemed to be around $14 and there was no surcharge added for the holiday.More
