Dined with my family on Sunday evening. We all really enjoyed our meals. Food was tasty, well presented and the waiting staff were excellent. Food came out quickly and hot. We ordered mild and was great that it was mild but still had lots of spice and flavour.

We visited Thai Chefs with some good friends for dinner a couple of nights ago. We didn't have a booking, but that wasn't an issue. We were very impresed with the range of dishes and it took us a while to decide what to have. We placed our orders and waited for our dishes to arrive. In the meantime, several... More

My personal favourite meals are 'alcoholics noodles,' spicy girl, and pad ped thai. Such a good range for vegetarians too. The staff are friendly and always willing to help. Love Thai Chefs

I'm not an expert on Thai food, but it is one of my favorite cuisines and I do think I know good from bad. This place was a random find (I was literally walking past it in a rainstorm and took a chance) and I was very pleased. I'm in Wellington 4 or 5 times a year and will definitely... More

I stopped off here for a quick meal when I was running late one night and in the space of a month have been back 4 times. Every meal I have had has been better than the previous; fresh ingredients, wonderfully tasty and a zing that is seldom found with Thai food in Wellington. The staff are lovely, prices reasonable,...

We decided to takeaway. Staff was very polite. Ordered the "Mr Bean in Bangkok" and some Thai seafood dish with Thai Whiskey. Both were disappointing. We expected better. Would maybe try something else next week time.

Love the food here. Staff always exceptional. My favourite Thai in Wellington The tom yum is superb and environment great Guess I can't rave enough. Only downside is that when you ph to make a reservation and leave a message they often make the reservation but don't call or text you back to confirm you have one

We arrived for dinner at 7pm on a Saturday night. We had great service and yummy food. By 8:30pm large groups of very drunk and loud people were arriving so it was time for us to leave.
