The small wonderfully decorated Blue Elephant restaurant is located on 237 Parnell Road in the second row behind some shops (easy to miss! Watch out for the number, which is written in big if you approach from the city center). But looking for it really pays out! The Thai personnel is very friendly and welcoming. And the food! Not this western adapted crap, it tastes like in Thailand! (I can tell, been there several times). With all the flavors it needs, from ginger to chili, from lime leaf to Thai basil. Some dishes are spicy, some are not. We had Red Pandang beef curry (highly recommended!), cashew nut prawns and ginger + oyster sauce beef for lunch. They do have special rates for lunch (if I recall correctly it was: 14,90 NZD for chicken/pork/beef dishes, 18,90 NZD for prawn dishes + 4,90 NZD if you want 2 spring rolls on top). So, if you like original Thai food, this is our address in Auckland!
