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.

Spontaneous Tuesday night dinner out with my girlfriend. Setting is modern, well lit & tastefully decorated. Service was prompt & regular without being intrusive, & the menu extensive & well presented. Food was quickly served & food portions more than ample! Overall an enjoyable experience & certainly a place we will look forward to dining at again.

This was our First Table experience we have had. It was fantastic, from the moment we walked thru the door. The service was excellent, the food was nothing short of totally delicious. We will definitely go back to Thai Chef's Restaurant and look forward to being First Table diner's again in another restaurant.

Great service from the staff. Food was brought out in a timely manner and good selection on the menu. The crispy pork belly was a tad salty but otherwise, very pleased.

It was a lovely meal experience at Thai Chef's Restaurant. The Restaurant is well appointed and has a large seating capacity with tables well spaced out. Also the servings are generous.
The flavours are very authentic and the staff did a good job.
We ordered 4 different starters and they were excellent. The mains were Beef Green Curry, Chicken Penang Curry, Yum Yum Lamb and Herb Fish fillets. All had great individual flavour and at "medium heat" there was enough Chilli bite to please the Thai food purist.
The deserts were excellent also. I will definitely return to this Restaurant again. A great night out !!!!

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

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.
