We had tried this restaurant under its previous management and found the service to be dreadful. The new management have corrected this. It was a pleasure to eat there and the food was very good. We will recommend Chang Siam to our friends.

We booked a last minute table for a family of 5 on a Monday night and the staff were very happy to accommodate our family even though we rung late. The staff had a table set up on our arrival with a highchair for our toddler. Staff were very friendly and were very knowledgeable about there menu. Our son has... More

Last night I had a wonderful meal at this restaurant and I can thoroughly recommend it. I enjoyed the Chicken Macadamian and was delighted with the sauce and the portions were so generous, and the service exceptional. My fellow diners were also impressed. Outside the rain was hosing down, but our spirits were high and I am not talking about... More

We have been here a number of times but the first time under new management. The whole experience was warm, friendly with very knowledgeable staff from start to finish. Plenty of choice on the menu, everything was very fresh and tasty. During our meal staff regularly checked that everything was fine with our meal. Thank you for a lovely evening.

This restaurant is in a beautiful rural location near Rainbow Falls, set in a nice garden. The decor is very authentic, with well-chosen Thai fabrics on the tables. The menu is extensive and varied. My wife and I shared a mixed appetizer plate, pepper squid, coconut rice, and red eggplant and chicken curry, and everything was outstanding. We've spent considerable... More

We received excellent service and found the whole experience totally exceeding our expectations. I used to live in Thailand and have forever been missing 'real Thai food' in any of the restaurants in New Zealand .. until tonight: it was perfect. Thank you - and congratulations to the new owner who will make this one of Kerikeri's highlights no doubt.... More

We ate in the garden, a great setting. Staff were super helpful, meals were delivered in no time. Amazing flavours, smelt Devine and presentation was gourgeous.

Restaurant: Seats were comfortable, decorated well. However I've never been to a restaurant and had to cover my meal with a napkin while eating. There were so many flies and they didn't leave when you waved at them. Hate to think what the kitchen is like if that was the restaurant. Staff: Waitresses, although being nice, need to be up...

Hi there, thank you for your feedback. I have just taken over the restaurant, just under a week ago now. I too agree that the flies are an issue, I have been spraying pretty much all times outside of service whilst guests have been there and eating, but with all the windows and doors open, it is a continuous struggle...

Found out about this place from a local winery. We all tried something different and every dish was outstanding. Best Thai food in quite some time. We were introduced to the two chefs and gave them our complements. Well done.

Thank Joe C

Chang Siam Thai Restaurant is set in beautiful countryside in Kerikeri and is just a few minutes walk from the 'world famous in Kerikeri' Rainbow Falls. The Head Chef grew up cooking with his mum in Thailand and he and his Thai team create the most delicious authentic Thai cuisine. The chefs blend authentic Thai flavours to create sensational dishes and offer a “chef’s special” menu, which is immensely popular. There is an extensive vegetarian section and also Thai dishes for young adults. The extensive wine list is professionally matched to Thai food and is competitively priced. Lunches, takeaway and dinners available every day except Tuesday.Service is a top priority for the whole team and the restaurant has already become widely known for both its outstanding food and attentive (but not intrusive) staff. The whole atmosphere is enhanced by a pleasant décor, live jazz music on Friday nights.
