We have eaten Thai food all over the world (including Thailand) and recommend Thai Chilli. We had the buffet. It is not the most sophisticated food in the world but tasty enough and good quality. Perfect for feeding my big eating 20 year old son!

Great on a cold night, fabulous authentic thai. We ordered takeaway and had a long wait but it was worth it. Great spring rolls, spicy tom yum, tasty curries and delicious pad thai. It was all good.

My Wife had the $20 buffet which she found was average but i got the $20 green chicken curry which was one of the best i have had! Great place and big venue but i would skip the buffet and order a proper curry!

Spent a night in methven and weren't sure what to eat. We decided on this place and we're very happy. The young lady serving us was very nice and helped us decide on delicious food to take away. Really happy we got our food here.
