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.

Great place for our friends get together, with delicious food, and large potions! We dined on a Sunday night and had an early table. The restaurant quickly filled up and there was a great atmosphere. The service was very good, friendly and efficient. Our meals...were served sizzling to the table. We enjoyed the Weeping Tiger, Pad Thai, Sweet and Sour Pork, and Roast Duck. Thank you very much for an enjoyable evening!More

The best Thai meal. I had salmon and my. Husband had honey roasted duck and both were amazing. The restaurant was very busy but the smiling, friendly staff and the quality of the food and speed of delivery was fantastic.

Service 1/5 ... slow to deliver menus and very slow to take orders and then slow to actually deliver our beers and wines .. once we ordered the were quick in getting it done Food 2/5 .. nothing like real thai food. The mussaman curry...was all potato and a few strips of beef, verly sweet, no depth of flavor. Pad Thai was very small for $29, more noodles than substance. The larb was a joke and nothing like the photos they show. At least the rice was ok!More

My football team had dinner here on the last night of our trip. I don’t know what was better, the food or the service. Both were fantastic. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful and welcoming. With 7 of us there we ordered allot of...different meals (I’m vegetarian) and every dish received great feedback and every plate picked clean. I’m already planning a trip back with other friends and told them we MUST have dinner there!! Thank you to the lovely lady who was manager that night & her wonderful staff for taking such great care of us :)More

What a busy and well run establishment. We walked in, no booking, were immediately seated and seen to. Meanwhile, the 2 front of house women effortlessly juggled constant takeaway orders, uber eats meals, dealt politely with all the customers in the room, and took our...orders. The food was great, the service was even better. Highly recommend.More

Fantastic Thai food. We chose to have a take away but the actual restaurant itself looked very good too. Everything we ordered was full of flavour with lots of meat to go with the delicious sauces. Couldn’t complain about anything. The order was prompt and...piping hot and the staff friendly. We will definitely be going back for more next time we’re in town.More

We were visiting Whanganui for a family reunion. Our hosts recommended Thai Villa. The restaurant was obviously popular with Whanganui diners with most tables busy and filled. That added quality to the recommendation... a restaurant that is busy has a good reputation! The service was...quick and efficient. The food when served was beautifully presented in generous portions. Our party left satiated and enthusing about the meal. RecommendedMore
