Don't waste your time or money. To be fair the entree was OK, nothing special, but the mains were truly terrible. Pay the ferry and go to the Duke in Russell if you want an awesome meal for much the same price.More

Description
This fabulous Thai restaurant in the Bay of Islands has absolute bay views. We also cater for those who think they don't like Thai food, offering plainer options. Amazing Thai is fully licenced and can cater for large groups of up to 110 people.

The food is very fresh and cooked to order by authentic Thai chefs. We offer dishes that you may not have encountered which will also appeal to non-thai lovers. We also have available a limited KIDS ONLY menu for those fussy eaters.

Conferencing facilities are available within the restaurant
