We weren't expecting to see lamb shanks on the menu in a Thai restaurant so we shared the large lamb shanks (two) and another chicken meal. Both were really really nice and we were very happy with our choice. Don't order two lamb shanks unless you've got a big appetite!

Thai Tahuna is good value budget Asian dining. A wide selection of mains are available, all priced around the $20 mark. Good drinks selection too. Unfortunately a poor selection of only 3 desserts. Found it a bit noisy for comfortable conversation; loud music and noise from other patrons. Friendly and attentive staff.

Disappointing takeaway. Combination entree was definitely just heated up was not fresh. Herb dish flavours were not great. Overcooked too. Would not recommend.

Our order was ignored and it was only when we saw people who come after us receiving their order that we realized that we had been overlooked. 2 days ago we ordered... More

One of the best Thai restaurants in Nelson. Excellent menu with something for adults and children. Their satay sauce is so good. We're locals and its our regular!

Tonight I had a bad experience. The staff were lovely, friendly and the service was fast, but I would have been happy to wait longer if that made the food better. Guri puffs were yum, but the panang curry was awful; the consistency was that of water, and the taste wasn't that much better, bland and not fresh tasting and... More
