I would call this the Maccas of Thai Food, ie. no frills!! The restaurant was large colourful and warm. We were greeted with friendly smiles and our orders were taken quickly and efficiently. The room was quite full with happy customers. Food was fairly basis, no frills and you got what you asked for but it was tasty and filled... More

Nakontong Thai restaurant would have to rate as one of the top two or three restaurants in Thames. The food and service are of a very high standard and you would normally be advised to book anytime in the weekends as you run the risk of missing out or having to wait in line for a spare table.

We enjoyed our dinner here. The setting was as expected of a Thai restaurant. The service was excellent, and we all enjoyed the flavours of our selected dishes.

Been to one Thai restaurant and you would pretty much know what to expect. Ordered a sizzling dish but it didn't come with the hot iron plate. They admitted the mistake but took a while to change the bills.

The old saying is always true - it's got to be good if the locals eat there - and whilst the Thai family that run the restaurant may be one of only a few Thai's in the region - all the local Kiwis appeared to be eating here - and it was a Thursday night! Would thoroughly recommend.

This Thai restaurant is always popular with locals & visitors alike, i have never had a bad meal here, its economical and pleasant atmosphere, the owners & staff are really friendly, always smiling and when you eat there more than once Thida always remembers what you like to drink. The Chilli Duck is my fav dish. Highly recommend any time,... More

Auckland prices, minus the fanciness. That said it is in Thames and there isn't much choice. So monopoly prevails in a sense. The meals were hot and it was a cold night. Not sure what's up with the extra charge for a credit card...
