We were in Taupo for a conference so our first and last nights were the only time we were able to eat out. It has been a long time since we have had access to Thai food so we chose Taupo Thai on our first night. Great decision - the hostess gave us a lovely welcome and showed us to... More

It's reasonably priced as it's a generous portion sizing for what you get. Only disappointment for me was the cocktail range they had. I ordered the Mai Tai as I didn't really know the other selections that they had. I asked for a "sex on the beach" or a "Pina Colada" which is pretty common but the waiter didn't seem... More

We were warmly greeted and seated quickly. We ordered 2 entrees and a main to share and it was plenty, very tasty and nicely presented. The waiting staff were very polite and attentive.

Reasonably priced and friendly place to visit. We went for lunch a bit late (outside lunch hours) but the manager was kind to provide a very good and quality lunch even after hours. Will visit again.

We ate with friends twice at this Restaurant, it was sooo good. As a lover of Thai food this place was a hit with us. First time diners and will go again next time we are in Taupo. Very friendly staff. I would recommend booking in the weekend it is very popular.

My wife and I love Thai food and are very fussy about the food having the correct textures and tastes (Thai food does not have to be extremely spicy but must be full of flavour); Taupo Thai is right up there and probably rates as a Top 5 NZ Thai restaurant.

It them 2 hours to get the food out to the table, and when the food finally came out it was not very nice or authentic. Would not recommend this restaurant.

Being part of an Asian family, it's hard to find good Asian food (Thai included) that will meet our taste. However, taupo Thai restaurant impressed us and recommend this restaurant to everyone! From tom yam soups to pad Thai, we were filled and very Very satisfied! Thank you for such good service :)
