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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The food was nicely cooked and plentiful. We requested a table down stairs ...our mistake. Their service was good, the waiting time between order and delivery acceptable. We enjoyed our experience.

We called in for a quick meal and were treated to a delicious feed. We both had Chicken Mossman Curry which arrived nice and hot in good time. Limited seating so not suitable for big groups. A great menu selection to choose from at average...prices.More

We didn't book or phone ahead. The restaurant was fully booked but they have a couple of tables in the entrance - where the bar and takeaway collection is located. Happily managed to seat us there for dinner. Nice timely service. Presentation and meals matched...the images in the menu perfectly - no disappointment there! Menu options many and varied - with level of spice/heat to suit the individual. Had to laugh with 'Thai Hot' or 'kiwi hot'... If we come back to Paraparaumu anytime, we will be back.More

I had the Nasi Goreng and some Roti. Flavours were good although the Thai Hot was a bit milder than expected. Would order from here again.

Good food but average service! They were busy but never served their customers well! Never got asked if we wanted a second drink! Need to wake up a bit as there were heaps of staff

Decided to branch out and try a new Thai restaurant on the Kapiti Coast - glad we did. Great service, lovely staff and nice and warm upstairs on a chilly evening. Great selection of dishes on the menu and large portions. Highlights were the duck...red curry and crispy pork! Best of all, it was really reasonably priced. It's BYO so take your favourite bottle of wine and enjoy a nice dinner out!More

We purchased takeaway meals which were tasty and as described on the menu. Staff were friendly and the cafe seemed busy.

We've just become recent regulars at this place after having to walk out of another one in the area. They're above average, reasonably priced and consistent. We're hooked for now.

The food was good but not stand out good, pretty average as Thai goes. It was all a bit of one temperature, chilli wise which was erring on the hot side when you ordered medium. Not an issue for me but not so good for...others. There was a good amount of meat so you didn’t just get sauce but the rice dish was very plain with not a lot of flavour or veggies etc.. Would eat there again as it’s local so good for a try.More

My wife had the duck curry while I enjoyed the seafood combo noodles with peanut sauce. While not authentic Thai food, it was nevertheless great. Both dishes were hot and tasty. Service was friendly and fast.

Ordered chicken satay skewers and Larb Gai. The skewers were good, but cut too thin so they were easy to overcook. The Larb was good. Service was pleasant and wait time short.
