I was there in mid-May. I'm a vegetarian, and my travel companion is not, so this restaurant was a great find. I had the Pad Kra Paow Tow Hu (Stir fried seasonal vegetables and tofu with fresh chilli and basil leaves), and it was delicious. They had a good wine and beer list, too. The staff was friendly, especially Arlene. I would highly recommend to anyone in Auckland who loves Asian food at a good price.

After struggling to find a Thai restaurant in downtown Auckland I stumbled upon Thai chilli. Service was quick, polite and professional. I felt like something real spicy so ordered the jungle curry with lamb, hot. The meal was promptly served and I am sorry to say but it was honestly the worst Thai meal I have ever had. It was like they had got some peas and beans from a packet, added some bamboo shoots and lamb off cuts and served them up in a bowl of boiling water with some chilli sauce added. It was terribly bland and I have had strawberry milkshakes spicier than that.

I was gutted on the walk home to pass Grasshopper which looked a much nicer Thai Restaurant. Oh well....

I noticed this place as I was walking to viaduct harbour and thought I would give it a try as I love Thai food. When I went in it was about a third full and it took a while to get served. Once I did get served however the food come relatively quickly, quicker than the beer I ordered at the same time! However once it come out it was very tasty! Took a while after to get the bill too.

I went there for dinner and had a soup and a main dish. The rice was shaped as a heart which I a kind of liked. The temperature of the main was not really sufficient so I assume it has been prepared in a microwave.

We are here because it was the only restaurant around that was still open. It was decent but average all around. There are much better Thai places, but there are probably also worse ones
