This was a birthday dinner. Food was excellent as was the service. Seated us in a quite part of the restaurant on request. BYO was an advantage with only $6 corkage. Just a really lovely evening, quiet prompt service and lovely food.

Mai Thai is a mandatory visit for my wife and I when in Auckland because of one dish: the delicious chicken satay skewers. We turn these into a main and they are consistently brilliant! The recent fit-out is nice and service has improved as well.
