What began as a humble food cart in Napier is now this bustling restaurant in Parnell! Welcome to Thai Chef, where authentic Thai grub is at the heart of all they do.

So, who is this mysterious Thai chef? Founder and Thai food extraordinaire, Chang, has been leading this restaurant to success after success after he gained a loyal following from his foray as a street vendor. The proof is in the taste. And over at this eatery, less is more. With a few simple panels on the wall injecting colour and fun, plus some cutesy lanterns and Thai ornaments, it's understated while also having heaps of atmosphere. Cosy date night just got the Thai treatment!

The menu is long enough and packed with enough tasty morsels to satisfy any craving. If it's noodles you're after, their 'C U' later noodles are loaded with veggies, your choice of meat and a rich soy sauce, while pad Thai is truly mind-blowing. When it comes to curry, they are the experts! Choose from the classic green and red curries or feel the love with the duck or go for some real stodgy goodness with the mussamun curry.

We ain't done yet! From the golden wok come some absolute blinders that are truly precious. Order some rice or noodles for the side and mix it up with their selection of succulent meats. And for something truly sublime, look no further than their 'extraordinary' section... that's no overstatement! Don't trust us? Let your taste buds do the talking!

As always, really delicious food and large portions from Thai Chef's. For starters we ordered chicken satay and kraree puffs which were both superb. For mains I had the Naughty Pig with Crispy Pork and my husband had the Spicy Girl with Duck and we loved everything. Will see you again.
