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.

When I arrived the restaurant was empty where most other places were full. I waited at the front counter for 5 minutes no service before going out the back and asking for some service. Then was told there would be a 10 minute wait that turned into 30 minutes VERY DISAPPOINTED. Wasn't worth the money

I absolutely agree with other reviewers here, way over priced for incredibly average to below par food. I also ate out at another Matamata restaurant and it was considerably better for the same cost. This restaurant was empty when most other places were full, which tells you something.

We both ordered duck - our favourite. Mine was the curry. Both meals were as good as any we had in Auckland. So, I was very pleased with this as some Thai restaurants can be hit and miss. They have a special menu also at a premium price. We stuck to the standard menu and wondered how much better the upgrade could be. Probably, extra portion?? I order hot and I was not disappointed. Plenty of duck/meat too.

Do not bother to visit this eatery. We had specifically requested for the pad Thai to be without any chilli, without any pepper amd pointed to 3 kids at our table that this is meant for them so please not spicy type. The pad thai served was spicy. This was validated by 2 adults at our table. The twins waitress was unable to take the feedback to the chef. We were told to "handle it with our boss directly"! We mentioned we do not know who she is and can she come out to intro herself? We were then told she is busy cooking and wont have time to attend to us! Again we were taken seriously when we said we will not pay for the wrongly cooked order. Only then the money-conscious lady boss came out. She has insisted that it isnt spicy. We requested to have the pad thai recooked but she refused and started raising her voice! In the end we mentioned that we can show her the chilli or she is welcomed to try it. She admantly refused. Worse experience in NZ ever. We paid for the noodle. And, photos of the spicy pad thai is enclosed with traces of chili as proof. The kids left hungry and we went for other restaurant for them.

My husband and I were looking for an Asian restaurant on a recent visit to Matamata. Found this one and were very pleased with the quality of our meals, the nice friendly service and the decor. Maybe a little expensive though.

Nana, mum & I we’re wanting take out. We waited to be served, & waited, & waited, 5 minutes later the workers just waved to us & didn’t even come over to serve us so we waited some more. “Let’s go next door & get Indian”. Served straight away at the Indian restaurant & only had to wait 15minutes to get our meal. Nana said she saw chicken on the bench, I just hope they were cutting it straight away.

Went with my family. Ordered mix Entree - none of the items tested fresh, my wife was a bit disgusted by the smell. Ordered three mains which were tasteless. Would not suggest anyone try this place - for less than half the price we have had much better satisfaction at the takeaway food place. Also, the person brought two wrong items even after specifically pointing it out on the menu.

Can't understand poor reviews either - genuine Thai cuisine lovingly cooked by nationals. Delectable curries and pad thai a hit. Great service and a good value.

Beautiful food. Presented well and so tasty. Loved the roast pork and the seafood was very fresh. We had the mixed entree and couldn't fault it. We love Thai and weren't disappointed.

I don't understand the bad reviews on here. Portion sizes were good value and the food tasted delicious and flavoursome. Service was friendly too. What more can you ask for?!

The food here in my opinion is overpriced for the quantity and quality of the dishes. service was ok and the restaurant was empty, which should have been an indication of restaurant.
