Fantastic service in a fancy setting. The food is good but not great exactly what you'd expect for the price. If you're looking for something inexpensive with good service and a perfectly serviceable food menu then it's bang on.

Jet lag and raining so opted for this independent restaurant in the hotel. Very pleasantly surprised by the ambience,courtesy of staff who were overstretched as restaurant very busy with large parties and individual diners who were not all tourists.The food was also very acceptable and we particularly enjoyed the vegetarian and fish dishes. Final bill which included our drinks very... More

My wife and I had dinner at Grasshopper purely by chance over the Christmas break (we couldn't find anything else open). We had Tom Yum Goong which was enjoyable, but nothing over-the-top. However, the Larb Gai was great. She is from Thailand and a great cook, and the Larb Gai was almost as good as hers!

Very accommodating staff, but the food was really just okay. I didn't find this Thai food any more than ordinary. I would go again if I were arriving too tired to explore Auckland.

Came across this highly rated restaurant on our way from the city bus terminal. Restaurant was nicely decorated and modern with friendly staff. We were seated and served promptly. Fish cakes were delightful. Staff were very accommodating of my meal changes which is much appreciated. Food was beautifully presented. Walked out with an under $60 bill and lovely food to... More

Walking around Auckland with the kids last night and stumbled onto this place. Family friendly, top notch Thai food and service. We had the fish, garlic pepper squid, seasonal vegetables and lamb curry, all were super! Highly recommend if visiting Auckland and looking for good Thai food.

Thank Andrew B
