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.

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.

The wonderful service matched the delicious food. So many choices! My husband loved his 'Sexy Little Duck' and my seafood Tom Yum soup was delicious, with the perfect amount of heat - we like it hot! Delectable starters preceded these. Generous servings left no room for dessert, but the selection looked very tasty. The provision of plastic containers for leftovers was appeciated. Easy parking and great location made for an excellent dining experience. Thank you Thai Chef's Restaurant, we'll be back!

The food was excellent, very flavourful, just be a bit careful because we thought we could manage medium, but it was quite spicy, even for me who is from Singapore are grew up eating chilly. Maybe we aren't used to New Zealand spice ratings.

The food is absolutely amazing, super delicious and full of flavour! Cannot fault the food at all, it is top quality. The service is also faultless. The staff are very friendly and look after you extremely well. They always make you feel welcome and help to create a good atmosphere. This is hands down the best Thai food I've had in Christchurch and I would 10/10 recommend to everyone. I will most definitely be coming back and I look forward to next time. Thank you Thai Chef! : )

Large restaurant with views of the park and a lovely thai décor. Love the menus with the humourous names of dishes, nice touch!
Service was very friendly and our meals all arrived quickly and fresh off the grill.
Meals were large and well priced. The chicken satay entrée was possibly the best I've had!

Highly recommended for any Thai food fanatics out there :) Food was amazing! We were seated very quickly and our order was taken as soon as we were ready. Food came out promptly, the only downside was we were left sitting for a while when we were finished and wanting a doggy bag for our left overs.

Many cheap Thai restaurants have great food in a fairly crappy room.
Many expensive restaurants have food fragments drizzled onto a plate with a brush, but you’re sitting in a beautiful room.
Thai chef has done something unique;
Beautiful food, substantial servings, all in a beautifully decorated room.
