It's been a lot of years since I dined at this restaurant and I found that not a thing had changed. The food was fantastic, the staff were great and the complimentary glass of port delivered with humor and kindness from the owner topped off the evening.

We had the opportunity to dine here on our recent trip to NZ and we were suitably impressed with the overall service from this establishment.

We ventured out West to check out Lai Thai as we'd heard good things about it. The food was good & the service was friendly. The question is ... Would I travel across Auckland to eat there again , hmmmm? One other point to note is that the friendly host was sick last Wednesday.

Lai Thai is one of my local restaurants which my family, friends and I have visited for years. A small, family owned restaurant you feel like your are being welcomed into someone's home. The service is always warm and friendly and the food is great value for money. A great place for any occasion.
