Whilst is the only Thai restaurant in Akaroa, it's a good one. I am always a starter for the curry puffs. Nice quick and friendly service with a great outlook to the water.

Very tasty food. I had a tofu soup and was very filling. The drink there was very tasty too. Can't remember what the drink was called but like nothing I have ever tasted.

YOu should eat at this restaurant and make sure you order the chicken Pad Thai. Best we`ve eaten. The meals are big so you can easily share one for lunch. Good value restaurant

People who cruise know about looking for WIFI before or after a shore excursion since WiFi on ships is usually very expensive. La Thai in Akaroa was the best in all of New Zealand for us. The baristas were very friendly, the coffee was delicious...More
