We come back again and again to Good Thai Restaurant on Kendal Avenue in Burnside. It is one of our two Favourite Thai Restaurants in Christchurch and we have never been disappointed.
We like the Staff too and have got to know them a bit from going so often.
On this night, we were mostly looked after by a young man who looked like he was still at school but he did a good job in his own quiet way.
B.Y.O. is an option which we use every time we go to Good Thai and parking is usually available close by.
They do takeaways as well which we have enjoyed in the past.
I rather like local restaurants that are not part of the many food chains that abound everywhere today whereas at Good Thai is a one off Restaurant.
There means a much more authentic feel to the eating out experience that I appreciate when we go out to Good Thai.
Good Thai is worth a try for larger Groups while also doing Takeaways or just eating out with Family or Friends.

We love Good Thai and have been there many time now. It is our favourite local restaurant and we just keep on going back with friends and Family.
I don't know about you but we sort of incline towards small and local eating out options which are authentic in their atmosphere and food cultures.
Good Thai fits that description and the Thai Staff do a very good job and this time was no different.
We were given a quiet table, and both the food and service were very good.

-Takeaways are available and a steady stream of punters were choosing that option while outside, the parking was good and Good Thai is B.Y.O. They charge $2.50 or $10 in our case for four people, worth it if you are want to bring a good or favourite bottle.
-Not so if you are bring a cheapie from the supermarket, at least that's what I think. You may differ!
So we will be back to Good Thai often and I suggest that you at least try them out.
Going early is good if you desire a good conversation and want to miss larger groups of diners who can at times spoil and evening out.

Nice and clean, but food is too sweet, compared to the Thai food I ate in Thailand. Furthermore, one thing I cannot understand is due to sweet food, we cannot finish the food we ordered and wanna take it away, but they said to us because of the regulation of First Table. If we buy First Table online, we cannot take the food away......I just do not want waste food.

A local Thai restaurant which has good food in a nice relaxed way and we have been a number of times and always enjoyed the food and experience.
It is BYO at $2 a person and fair enough, parking is good and the venue is clean and suitable for a small to medium size restaurant.

All in all, very happy with nothing to be unhappy about. Our only issue is the inability as mentioned in a previous review, is not being flexible when a mild is ordered and agreed to - only to get a dish more a medium flavour.

We will return again

we always enjoy coming back to Good Thai which is all but our Local. So easy to visit and with little traffic to worry about.
We appreciate the good water and wine glasses Good Thai provide and find the food is usually very good too.
On this visit, we took friends along with us , shared four mains and every dish was enjoyable and tasty.

Many Asian restaurants struggle to cope with our usual request to have one dish brought out at a time - good Thai does that well.

Other good features are that parking is usually easy to get with a number of car parks just outside the restaurant and good to note that Good Thai do Takeaways as well.

The atmosphere is just average but I quite enjoy smaller local cafes and restaurants with a bit of character and a bit different. That makes a change from the Food Restaurant chains around and most of my favourites places fit in to the first category.
B.Y.O. applies at Good Thai and personally, given the nice wine glasses supplied, I certainly don't begrudge the byo cost there - as opposed to some places that provide tiny wee glasses that fail to do justice to any good wine you bring.

So overall, I am very happy to have Good Thai nearby and enjoy the staff there who do a good job, thank-you. We will continue to keep coming back

Three of us dined at Good Thai last night. We had the moneybags for entree which were very nice. We shared our mains and we had chicken pad thai, beef with oyster sauce and veges and chicken with peanut sauce and veges. All dishes were very nice and I've had a few pad thais at different places recently and this was by far the best. This restaurant is well worth a visit .

For an early booking restaurant was very cold ( diners are seated & feel the cold staff are moving around) but did eventually warm up - friendly greeting & offered the opportunity to move table to a warmer part of the room - service went down as got busier & not enough staff to handle diners & takeaways - food was tasty altho orders were mixed up with mild / medium going to the wrong people - had gone early to advise had a very small birthday cupcake with candle - when came to cake -NO Matches!! after we had been in restaurant 2 hours.
The food was tasty and is not expensive but a special birthday night not quite as expected.......

One of many visits to Good Thai in Burnside and we went as a foursome with friends.
We shared 4 mains between us, one at a time and all were very good and went down well with our visitors.
We have a small but Important point to make, and our lovely Thai Hosts need to respond and listen to their guests i.e. when a mild is ordered, that really means mild - not medium.
As a result, the lovely meal was just too hot for 3 of the four of us and did spoil the meal as a result. Myself, I loved the duck in red curry which was still a very good dish.
So just making the point to the staff/ owners of Good Thai so that they get it right next time- and there will be a next time as we like Good Thai Staff and their Food and that is why we keep on going back and why we recommend the Restaurant.
I will learn too and not order any dish which is shown as a medium in future as it likely will still be a medium. Maybe not?

We've just found our new favourite Thai restaurant. Have been going to another one and it's been revamped where prices have gone through the roof and value through the floor. This place is AWESOME. Delicious food, not pretentious surroundings but perfect for a LOVELY meal. Can't recommend this little gem highly enough!!!!
