Great atmosphere, relatively good menu and quick service. No sizzling plates though. Caters well for couples, families and larger groups.

Arrived shortly after a large group for dinner on a Sunday Eve. Knew there would be a wait. Everyone was very nice though. Food was pretty good. Complaint was the unruly kids in the place. A couple were at the large parties table, one was behind the counter I assume one of the servers kids. They were loud. Loudly playing Games with the volume cranked up high on a phone or other game system. Ridiculous that either parents or the management didn't quiet it down.

Good and friendly take away service. Enjoyed geang Pad yang (duck red curry), muu pad gratiam pliktai (pork fillet with garlic and pepper) and panang gai (chicken in panang curry). Both curries were good with veges but the pork very salty in a soy based sauce I did not expect. Overall good for New Zealand.

The service was good and the decor the traditional NZ Thai restaurant. The food lacked fresh authentic Thai herbs which are critical to the taste palette. I had the fried prawn entree and massaman curry for main, both were good but lacked any Thai magic. The pad Thai was poor.

What a GREAT THAI RESTAURANT that we chanced upon in Lake Taupo !! We stayed at Hilton Lake Taupo and took a short drive to this restaurant. Service was so authentically Thai ~ gracious, polite, eager and genuine. Food is sooooooo good ! 3 of us ordered four dishes and they r all super yummy !! Highlight is their signature LOTUS NOODLES !! Omg it’s PERFECTLY AMAZINGGGGGG !! Please setup this same restaurant in SINGAPORE !! Congrats to Chef & the team !!
