Delightful Thai restaurant with friendly and good service. Food was excellent! Mixed starter and the Molten Volcano was Fantastic! Throughly enjoyed it. Be prepared to be patient as the food took a while to come but was thoroughly worth it!

Our chefs are very experienced, from North East Thailand and have worked hard to create a diverse and tasty menu. Chang Siam has gradually got busier and busier and, at peak times, there is sometimes a little dleay and we thank you for your patience. Mnay thanks for confirming that the end result was worth waiting for! Kind regards More

The decor recreated the experience of being in Thailand. The room is decorated in Thai relics and wonderful music played throughout our dinner. We were also able to order Chang, Singha and Tiger beer that is from Thailand. The food was well presented but the flavour was disappointing. The Pad Thai was a little sweet and didn't have very many... More

One word - Amazing. The food is outstanding here especially the prawn and cheese rolls as an entree and the chilli jam duck for main course. The staff are friendly and welcoming. Will definitely be back again.

I visited with a friend of mine. The manager was not in a good mood when we arrived and was close to rude when we asked questions. There was a large group in, maybe he was flustered??? The appetizers were good, chicken satay and money bags however the mains were very very disappointing. The meat was tough and chewy and... More

Both the manager and waitress spent an inordinate amount of time helping this couple at table 8. The many questions were answered positively and no staff member was flustered. The beef in the beef massaman was left in the bowl and was found by the head chef and manager to be quite tender and of good flavour. We do not... More

Having visited this restaurant numerous times for both takeaway and dine in I have found the dishes on all occasions to be well presented and have enjoyed them all. I would suggest though, that if you request vegetarian dishes you specify no tofu unless you actually like it, as it is added in place of meat. There is often live... More

Chang Siam Thai Restaurant is set in beautiful countryside in Kerikeri and is just a few minutes walk from the 'world famous in Kerikeri' Rainbow Falls. The Head Chef grew up cooking with his mum in Thailand and he and his Thai team create the most delicious authentic Thai cuisine. The chefs blend authentic Thai flavours to create sensational dishes and offer a “chef’s special” menu, which is immensely popular. There is an extensive vegetarian section and also Thai dishes for young adults. The extensive wine list is professionally matched to Thai food and is competitively priced. Lunches, takeaway and dinners available every day except Tuesday.Service is a top priority for the whole team and the restaurant has already become widely known for both its outstanding food and attentive (but not intrusive) staff. The whole atmosphere is enhanced by a pleasant décor, live jazz music on Friday nights.
