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.

Big portions of good food in a restaurant with a sea view. What more could you ask for? A slightly better wine list if you were being fussy.

My husband & I dined here before going onto a concert held at Southward Museum. We had booked prior as it is very popular. From the time we arrived we were greeted with a smile and made you feel very welcome. We shared the platter...for our appetizer which was very substantial and tasty. Our mains we had were also very good and so big. We didnt have room for dessert unfortunately.!! I took some of my main meal home as I couldn't eat it all. So great to walk out of a restaurant and feel that you have a full belly. Service and staff were very pleasant. We will definitely come back here when we are in Paraparaumu next. We will spread the word.... Thankyou to all your staff. Keep up the great service and great food.!!!!!More

My wife and I have been going to this restaurant since it opened and it was a great restaurant then that has only improved with time. I can honestly say that the meals served there are the best Thai meals that we have ever had....We have eaten Thai food through out Thailand, USA and other Asian and non Asian countries and none have compared to the meals served up at the Thai Marina. Well done Ying.More

I thoroughly enjoyed this meal. The crispy pork with pepper and ginger sauce with steamed veg. The sauce far more flavoursome than I expected. Really large filling meals.

Took take away last time and thought the place looked really nice to eat in so we did and we were not disappointed. All of the food was very good with generous portions and not just lots of sauce with little to no meat or...seafood. They did accidentally mishear me and bring the wrong meat dish but they didn’t flap they just promptly took it away and remade the correct meal in record time. Throughly enjoyable meal in a lovely setting with friendly staff.More

Such gracious polite staff. The lovely chef even popped out to check one of our orders. The food was beautifully presented and very tasty. I only wish we'd ordered more of their delicious satay dipping sauce! Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

The chicken skewers were ok, perhaps slightly overcooked, satay was average. Fish cakes were over processed and could have had some texture. Larb Gai was good, big size, but could have had more herbs. The family was in helping with service, very pleasant, but not...that professional. Overall a good meal, but room to improve.More

After popping in the Hipsta shop nearby we went on their recommendation and it wasn’t wrong. We had two started, two mains and a bottle of wine and the value was amazing. The food was delicious with great flavour and just the right amount of...heat. The young man that served us was excellent at his job and although the restaurant was busy due to a large party the service we received wasn’t compromised. When we return to Paraparaumu we will defo eat here again! Thank you 😊More

Lunch at the Thai Marina today was our first post-Covid19 lockdown restaurant meal. Everything was just as before and the food as good as ever. We have tried Thai restaurants in dozens of towns and cities, both in NZ and overseas, and I can say...with confidence that few if any have come close to what we have just down the road. Don’t be put off by the lack of fancy decoration and “atmosphere”. The Thai Marina is an understated little jewel on the Kapiti Coast.More

On a recent visit to the Kapiti Coast, we called into Thai Marina. We had trouble choosing from the delicious menu so we ordered a Banquet for 4. We were not disappointed, we had the chance to try a variety of dishes & they were...all delicious. I would definitely return.More

Fantastic Thai food, every dish was packed with flavour and they all tasted different. Sounds crazy but I have eaten at restaurants where 2-3 dishes taste like they have the same sauce, these were all very unique, as they should be! The Penang was out...of this world and I chose king prawns, of which there were easily a dozen in the dish. The seafood sauna was also very good although lacking a little on seafood compared to my penang. The green Thai had a wonderful aroma of kefir leaves and the Massaman had heaps of tender beef. The peen cakes were delicious and the curry puff were super light and fluffy. All in all an excellent meal- which we took as a take away, may try eating in next time!!More
