Cuisine: Asian, Thai
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $35

There are some nights when you need to be quicker than a Bangkok taxi driver to get a good table at Taste of Asia - such is the reputation of this eatery that’s become one of Mount Maunganui’s worst kept secrets.

Taste Of Asia's decor consists of softly-lit walls of a deep, restful red - pleasant and unpretentious.

The Thai Cuisine at Taste of Asia does differ from traditional Thai dishes, 'we concentrate more on taste than (chilli) heat.’ Popular dishes include Kinnaree Chicken, grilled chicken breast marinated with Thai herbs, coconut cream,served with seasonal vegetables and peanut sauce.

The restaurant lends itself to the Mount’s sultry summer evenings, with front doors that open out onto the street for al fresco dining. Rather sit by the beach? Taste Of Asia has a big takeaway menu.

The food was pretty good. The cooking can be more authentic to Thai rather than fusion.

First time here, and was very impressed. We loved our starters, and the mains were amazing. Be warned very good sized meals, so if not big eaters, don't get starters. I could not eat all of mine so it was offered for the remainder to be put into a takeaway container. Staff were more than pleasant, very nice and never ever rushed us which is so nice. Definitely be back and next time only a main and the maybe just maybe a dessert.

Have always walked pass many times but never have actually sat and ate here. Let me tell you I was missing out! This place is so delicious with great design and layout. All our food including entrees and mains were cooked beautifully. We all left very well satisfied, wanting more! Will definitely be visiting again :)

I like to keep my reviews quite short, so in a word I would call our experience at A Taste of Asia yesterday evening OUTSTANDING.The food was delicious, especially the Pad Thai, but the Tom Yum Gai gave it real competition for first place. Presentation of the dishes, the service and the atmosphere within the restaurant was all beyond expectation.
My first ever 5 star review so to speak *****
We will be back again very soon!! Thanks again to the staff.

We made a booking for our son's birthday, and could not fault the wonderful service from Jane. Spoilt for choice, the menu covered all requirements. Portion size and the taste was amazing! We are definitely booking again..even if there is no special occasion!

Overall this is a lovely restaurant and the service, entrees, mains and drinks were fantastic. The desserts were average and they added a couple of extra mains to our bill which we had to get refunded, so make sure you check your bill before you pay!

Food was better than expected - rich flavours, broad menu and good portion sizes. The service was nothing special. It was ok, but a few hurdles, e.g. the cashier had to manually key in each item to total the bill which took a while.

The Taste of Asia did not disappoint! The food was tasty, full of flavor, and exactly what we expected to come out from the description on the menu. Was a sunny evening so was really nice sitting outside enjoying the atmosphere of the Mount. We will be back for sure!

The service was quick and unobtrusive which is how I like it. Three of us dined there and the meals were tasty and presented well. I had a fairly typical pork stir fry, medium spicy, which was just right. The dish came with separate rice and wasn’t too large to eat. In fact my adult daughter asked for more rice as she lives in Asia and eats more than the average kiwi. We had room for dessert too. Most desserts came with Kapiti vanilla icecream and were beautifully decorated with sculpted fruit. A reasonably priced and enjoyable experience.
