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

Stopped in for a quick lunch whilst passing through Christchruch today on our road trip. Food was great, and warmed us up after some cooler than expected weather here today. Lunch menu was quite extensive with most main items (eg pad thai, red curry etc)...at about $14. Taste was pretty good, and portion size was good also. Restaurant was very clean and quite large. Just opposite casino. Lots of street parking around, so easy to stop by for lunch.More

Visited Aroy Thai to celebrate a special occasion with family and friends. Location is convenient, plenty of Off Street parking. The restaurant looks pretty old and the atmosphere is dull.The server was ok and delivered the expected. However food was average, was expecting it to...be more nicely presented and something more than just sauce. Really the ambiance was not there.I would rate this as average.More

Decided to go out for dinner with a group of friends, the food was below average and nearly tasted like the watties packet red curry. One of the staff members went through one of our friends bags without consent, when she was approached about it...she denied these claims. As the night went on it got worse when it came time to pay our bill, they tried overcharging and kept drawing up the incorrect price on the ATM machine which seemed cunning. I would not recommend coming here, awful food and scammers trying to overcharge everyone just to keep their business running.More

Disappointing. We didn't have a good experience here unfortunately. My wife's fish cakes were rubbery and dripping in oil so we sent them back but were still charged of course. My curry puffs were bland. The mains were quite good but didn't make up for...everything unfortunately. The service was also terrible. There were only 3 tables in but we still had to ask for service. We finished our mains and waited 20 minutes to order dessert, when the waitress never came we decided to leave and go elsewhere.More
