Had a thoroughly enjoyable meal here with a group of friends.

Half of the table ordered a banquet and they said every dish was delicious. They also had leftovers to take home.

I had satay pork skewers (3) for an entree. The pork was a little bit chewy but the sauce was really good. For my main I had chicken Penang curry with a serve of jasmine rice. Tasted fantastic and I took the leftovers home (it was a whole second meal).

Their menu is quite extensive and it a couple of dollars more expensive than other Thai restaurants. They have quite a few different choices of rice you can order and it is served per person, not a group bowl in the middle of the table. The rice is served in enclosed little metal bowls and my curry was served on top of a tea light candle, which kept it nice and warm.

BYO alcohol is allowed. However the wine list was reasonably priced and the cocktail list is very good value.

Our waitress was very good and quite amusing.

Thank Channon R

4 of us went last night. Delicious scrummy Thai food. 2 of us had pickled pig, crunchy pieces of pork, in an amazing thin sauce with loads of veges. Great flavours. Had the medium which was still very spicy. One had the green curry, I had a mouthful & it was superb..My friend who often had vegetarian dishes when out decided to have the crispy chicken & was pleased she did. It was superb. We all agreed, we will return.
The restaurant was full but I guess a lot were closed in Easter Monday, so not sure if normally as busy as that

Really enjoyed our dinner here and chuckled at the quirkiness of some of the dish names on the menu. Restaurant was fairly busy but we were made very welcome by our hostess and waiter, seated immediately and relaxed with drinks and nibbles while we waited for our meal. Very reasonable prices for the quality and quantity of food served. Would return - well recommended

Although we had not booked a table in advance (it was Valentine’s Day so they were very busy), we were made extremely welcome by the staff at this excellent restaurant. The food and the service were first class.

The food at Thai Chef's restaurant was very good. We arrived in Christchurch tired and a little hungry. Our dining experience was delightful and the food scrumptious. The cuisine was as good as good or better than the best Thai restaurants that I have visited.
