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

Taste extraordinary Thai cuisine at this award-winning restaurant.

In 2013, the team behind Thai Chef were thrilled to receive the Thai Select Premium award by the Prime Minister of Thailand herself, as a recognition of their traditional and truly authentic dishes.

You’ll enjoy the best of Thailand’s flavours and creations; phad Thai, green curry and tom yum soup grace the menu alongside a huge range of vegan and vegetarian options. Try the chef’s original ‘Famous Chick’ dish, or devour a hearty, traditional kha-nom pang na moo (“sleepy pig in bed”), minced pork and herbs on toast, larb ped duck salad or whole fish in red Thai sauce.

Thai people are known for their big smiles and generous hospitality and Thai Chef’s restaurant is no different; expect great service and a friendly atmosphere.

We had a lovely dining experience. Four very different meals - chicken, beef, prawn & pork - all delicious. Unexpectededly generous and calm space, and much easier parking (around the back) than feared. Attentive but not suffocating service. Thank you

Very nice environment. Good services. Overall the dishes were pretty good. But the portions were small and a little too salty.

The food and service was excellent. It's probably the best Thai in the whole of Christchurch. Prices are a bit on the high side, so don't be put off, but certainly value for money.

The food was delicious but we expected the "Hottest" spice to be hotter. We suggest redesigning your menu as it's quite large and clunky also I don't like my food being referred to as sexy.

I was greeted very politely when I arrived early for my dinner with two friends. The restaurant is large, but richly decorated in wonderful colour and imagery. We had a drink and checked out the menu. It's huge, with a wide range of options for all tastes.There are some hilarious names. We chose satay skewers, and 'No moon tonight, honey' for starters, and then 'Duck in love', black pepper lamb (served sizzling on a hot plate) and herbal fish. Everything was very tasty and really good. The spice was pronounced but not overpowering. The portion sizes were perfect, and we really enjoyed our meal. Highly recommended.

Loved the food although the medium curry was just 1 notch too hot for us Kiwis. Nothing a glass of milk wouldn't fix. Had the lamb yum yum & holy basil chicken. Nicely presented & tasty. Rice is an extra on the extraordinary menu but jasmine rice good value at $2.50/small bowl which is more than it looks. First table enables you to explore more expensive menu choices. Service was friendly but not overbearing which suited us. Even got a Thai bow greeting on arrival. Knocked a star off as the Gibbiston Valley Pinot noir we chose off the wine menu was sold out. Others were available but none from Central Otago.

Having only driven past this restaurant i was very impressed with the decor and size of it when stepping inside. I was impressed with the food and would return. There were four of us dining and one of my friends commented that the service could be better. I disagree as i found the service really good, perhaps it was the company that kept my focus and i was more involved in the conversation and the food to worry whether they came and asked us if we wanted dessert or more drinks.
