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.

Food is very nice but the wait times are out of control. You need to improve your service levels for us to come back.

We have been to this restaurant many times over the years, but not regularly. I was a bit hesitant when I read some of the recent reviews. When we arrived a man came out and seated us, then disappeared and never returned. We went up...to the counter after 10 mins and the lady there was very apologetic and promptly brought wine and took our food order. The entrees were great and came out quickly. Mains were also lovely and the service was very good. Glad to see that things haven't changed, totally recommend the food here. Takeaway is also good.More

I bought Pad talay from this restaurant and cost $24.50 and the majority of the dish was filled with vegetables. The dish only had 2 prawn 2 mussel and 1 fish the rest filled with vegetables. Very disappointing having to pay that much for a...take away dish, this place needs to be accountable for what they serve to public. Very poor service👎More

Very slow and poor service, the staff didn’t seem to bothered. Food was just ok but very average . The whole place could do with a makeover as the furnishings we’re getting very tired looking

We’ve been fairly regular and loyal patrons for almost 5 years now, and have noticed portion sizes have been creeping downward in the last 12 months. All dishes are getting really small, especially for the money you’re paying. Tonight we ordered through Uber Eats and...only got one small rice rather than 2 (as we ordered 2 curries). When we called the restaurant to query if they had not given the rice to the driver or maybe he’d forgot it and - after having to explain this to two staff - were told “next time we can have double rice” ?!? (No idea how that would work, and why would anyone want double rice in a later meal...) Also, the $3.50 was tiny and thin and cold, as were our 4 small curry-puffs that were $9!!! I don’t mind paying decent money at all, but I expect fair portions and food to be warm (we live less than 2km away, about a 4-5 min drive, so there’s no excuse for the food to be cold). The $20 curries were also only half full so needless to say after all this... we’re still very hungry! :( Really disappointed and will probably try the other Thai restaurants in Papakura next time.More

Had a lovely meal at Tipparost last night with my husband. I live in the area but had never tried it but after our regular Thai place hasn't been good lately we decided to give this place a go. Interesting, authentic interior with a good...atmosphere. Lovely range on the menu. I had the chicken cashew nut stir fry and it was delicious. With enough for leftovers for lunch. The only slightly disappointing thing was the $3 cost for some rice. However. the quality of food overrode this. Great service and food came out really promptly. Will definitely be back and think this might be our new local! :)More

Despite other reviews, we visit semi-regularly for takeaway and dine-in and it has always been a pleasure! I think like most places this one can have the odd off night, which is a shame. I have always found the food very tasty with quite diverse...and distinct flavours - especially the pad Thai, which has a proper smoky quality, rather than just plain fried. The two ladies I normally see in the restaurant are always charming when I meet them and the table service when we dine in has been very helpful. Hope people will give Tipparost a chance, as it is excellent on a good day!More

Have been here a few times but tonight a two hour wait for a quick meal. Was told when leaving one of the chefs didn’t turn up. Suggested they might want to tell people when they arrived that there was up to an hour delay....Many irate customers and the problems in staffing showed through in the food. Very disappointed.More

Took my granddaughter to Tipparost for dinner as a treat....her choice as she really likes Thai food. We were greeted with a big smile and shown to a booth table....again my granddaughter's choice. Menus given to us...there is a cocktail menu already placed on every...table. The wine and beer list is varied and offers all types at very good prices. The food menu covers everything from starters through to set menus for groups. We started with Prawn toast, and beautiful tom kha kai...a spicy coconut soup, which was just perfect!! Mains consisted of Gai Yang (bbq chicken with sweet chilli sauce), 3 coloured fried rice (chicken, king prawns, cashews etc plated inside a half cooked whole pineapple)..and this tasted absolutely amazing, and my granddaughter stuck to a favourite...Kwai Pad (chicken fried rice with thai sauce). All dishes were plated nicely, tasted delicious and we didnt leave much at all. Staff were great and looked after us well....without being over the top. Restaurant is done out in Thai tradition, very clean, Thai music going in the background and they did have a TV going on the wall on Channel 1. My granddaughter did use the bathroom and came out saying they werent very nice....there were spiders...so not sure if the spiders were the reason she said they weren't nice!! Overall we had a lovely meal and a glass of wine. Suitable for all ages and wheelchair accessible. Can accommodate groups. Recommended.More

looked great from the outside but on entry it did not look to good, seating arranged nicely but not for a wheel chair bound person or larger people. Sadly when meals arrived the waiting staff had to pass all the meals in front of the...people sitting around the table without a word spoken. The green curry meal was more of a coconut soup than a curry, meat was of the thin stir fry type instead of the normal chunks of lamb which one normally has with a curry. Others in our group had fish, wasn't to bad, Two ladies tried the 3 flavored rice which where in fact Fried rice which was soggy and bland with 3 different coloured vegetables. Sadly had to buy the rice to be had with the meal,More
