THE THAI RES­TAU­RANT

Rotorua Visitor Guide - - News -

The Thai Res­tau­rant has earned an en­vi­able rep­u­ta­tion as one of Ro­torua’s lead­ing Thai restau­rants, serv­ing an ex­ten­sive menu of fine Thai cui­sine in au­then­tic sur­round­ings. Ex­tolled by din­ers as an ex­pe­ri­ence to be re­peated, the food and ser­vice has been de­scribed as epic! En­cap­su­lat­ing the unique qual­i­ties of Thai­land, the res­tau­rant presents ex­quis­ite cui­sine pre­pared by ex­pe­ri­enced chefs who have trained in Thai­land’s top ho­tels. The menu fea­tures more than 80 dishes, in­clud­ing a di­verse se­lec­tion of fish, plus pop­u­lar one-off black­board spe­cials sought after by lunchtime din­ers, The at­ten­tion to ser­vice ex­tends to cook­ing and serv­ing trout that has been caught by cus­tomers. Bal­ance, de­tail and va­ri­ety are all im­por­tant to Thai cook­ing. Har­mony is the guid­ing prin­ci­ple be­hind each dish. A per­fect blend of the spicy, sub­tle, sweet and sour is what de­fines the ideal Thai meal, and this com­bi­na­tion should be equally sat­is­fy­ing to the eye, nose and palate. Eat­ing Thai style is of­ten a com­mu­nal af­fair, al­low­ing for a wide va­ri­ety of dishes to be en­joyed. The Thai res­tau­rant of­fers din­ing op­tions rang­ing from af­ford­able, ban­quet style meals to in­ti­mate din­ing in a small pri­vate area. The Thai Res­tau­rant is rec­om­mended by Lonely Planet, who say “Our pick of the global se­lec­tion of eth­nic eater­ies along Tu­tanekai Street, The Thai Res­tau­rant over­comes an unimag­i­na­tive name with ex­cel­lent ser­vice and top notch ren­di­tions of clas­sics you pre­vi­ously en­joyed on Koh Sa­mui or Khao San Rd. Seafood is par­tic­u­larly good – try the squid with basil or the scallops with gar­lic and black pep­per.” Owner Nong says the res­tau­rant be­lieved to be Ro­torua’s long­est-es­tab­lished Thai es­tab­lish­ment, of­fers all the tra­di­tions of Thai­land. Su­perb food and great ser­vice make it a favourite with lo­cals and in­spires vis­i­tors to re­turn. The Thai Res­tau­rant is fully li­censed and BYO.
