Reviews for Thai Village Restaurant

I went here with my family for my mum's birthday dinner. We went on a Monday night and the place was super busy which shows this restaurant's popularity. I really love Thai food! I've tried many Thai restaurants in Auckland and I have to say this was one of the best (second to Moo Chow Chow). We ordered numerous dishes to share and everything tasted delicious.
For starters we had the mixed appetisers, chicken satay and the spring rolls. For mains we ordered the flaming chicken which was one of the best I've ever had and it is literally served on fire! We also had the green and red curries which were both full of flavour. Our seafood dish was the whole steamed fish with lemon sauce which was super yummy! We also had the garlic and pepper pork which was really good as well. We didn't try any of the desserts though because we were super full and we had brought a cake with us which the staff kindly decorated with fruit.
The only downside to Thai Village was the service. They were really understaffed and I really felt for the waiters as they were constantly on the go. We were always trying to flag them down to get their attention.

Visited Thai Village last night, Saturday 22 Feb. Had one of the most enjoyable dining experiences I've ever had.
The staff were so friendly, and they were so attentive to us during the night even though the place was so full. We noticed only 1 empty table while we were there. Service overall was great.
The food was to die for.
My first experience with flaming chicken, OMG it was fantastic.
Our party of 5 all agreed that this was the only Thai restaurant to eat at from now on. To the staff, a great big THANK YOU all so very much for a wonderful evening. See you again soon.

My experience of dining at Thai Village Restaurant was very pleasant and enjoyable. It's a pity that one can't upload pics - I took quite a few for the great presentation. A friend of mine that came with me was very impressed. She works for an international airline, travels around the world a lot and told this place was simply one of the best. We ordered a few starters, yellow chicken curry, prawns with veges to share and also dessert. It's hard to pick what we liked the most as everything was delicious. The staff were friendly and I could see they were making an effort to make sure we were happy with everything. I'll definitely be back and I highly recommend this place to all who appreciate an authentic Thai cuisine.

We waited half an hour after we had been seated to place an order for our drinks and food. They were incredibly short staffed. The meals came out fast and the food was ok. We did watch as a meal had been taken to the wrong table and the people had started eating it, then the waiter came back to remove the food, he took it straight over to the right table. This was appalling. The service was not good. There are much nicer Thai restaurants in Auckland, wont be returning again.

Excellent and authentic Thai food. Attentive and friendly service. Lot's of free parking. Great duck, chicken and seafood dishes. You can also specify how spicy you want your dish ranging from mild to Thai hot. Slightly on the expensive side for Thai food but well worth it for a top all round experience.

Disappointing experience. Unfortunately had problems from the start. They seemed to have double booked our booking and took a while to find a table. Then when we did find a table they forgot us for about 20 minutes and we had to ask for menus and to order drinks. Meals were nice, decor nice but they weren't able to even give us our second choice of desserts. Disappointed. No excuse for this poor service. We wont be back. Lots of other better Thai restaurants around. The food wasn't that good to give this restaurant a second chance.

My partner and I frequent Thai Village as it has become a reliable favourite for dine-in and takeaway. I love their Red Duck Curry and if you're ever eating in, I recommend the flaming chicken!

We come here every couple of weeks.
I love Thai food and Thai Village is my all time favourite. Has to be the best Thai food in Auckland.
Presentable staff and clean tables.
And always plenty of free parking in the large parking lot next door.

My wife and I decided to dine there last Saturday. Our first time after being recommended by friends.
The food was by far the best Thai food we have tasted in NZ.
As for the service. We have never been made to feel so much at home as we were. The waitress with the brown hair, was so professional. She helped in recommending what courses we could have that would suit our preferences. The food arrived in a timely fashion between entrees, mains & desserts.
Will we go again. Absolutely, and very very soon.

The Thai Village was a great experience. The atmosphere of the restaurant was great. The service was friendly and prompt. The food was excellent and good value for money. My wife was apprehensive about eating Thai but thoroughly enjoyed her time and after sampling the food said that it was delicious! Great place to enjoy as a couple or as a family!

The Thai village most definately serves the best Thai I have ever tasted. The people are so friendly and nice. The food is delicious and the atmosphere of the restaurant is fantastic. Love the Thai decor too. It is at the top of my list for birthday and dinner party's! Great, authentic Thai, LOVE IT!

Probably a favourite for Thai restaurants in Auckland, been here several times for dinner. Food is just delicious, the flaming chicken and waterfall beef and the entrees are good too. However on one occasion it took about an hour and a half for the food to come - was a really busy night so watch out for that, otherwise definitely recommend if you like Thai food. Service is alright, and love the decour and nice location.

Food came out within 5 mins and tasted amazing! Decor is very cool - authentic Thai style. Standard Thai restaurant pricing. Recommend to all. Hint - there is a car park on Clonbern Rd right outside the restaurant.

I had a dinner party with my friends at the Thai Village last week. We ordered Banquet 1 because we were suggested that we would be able eat at the same time. When compared to the portion per person, the food was not expensive. It was delicious and the atmosphere was great! The flaming chicken was fantastic. The staff were very tentative and all of us really enjoyed the food. I will go back there with my friends again.

This restaurant was lovely. Service fab and prompt, even when I asked to change tables it was no problem. Food delicious. And the sizzling chicken fell off the bone. Would definitely return again. I hadn't been for some years, and it was nice to return and be as good as I remember it. Four stars!

We travel all over NZ and have just about tried every Thai restaurant, nothing bets the food freshness and quality of the food from the Thai Village Restaurant in Remuera.
Their service is first class, nothings a problem just a fantastic place to dine.
Go and try it you won't be disappointed

Excellent food, environment, and services. I and my family came to this restaurant and we were so happy. Their desserts were also yummy. The owner and the staff looked after us very well although it was a very busy night. We will go back definitely.

Food was great (seriously terrific!) but service wasn't.
It took three phone calls (the first two I left clear messages but no-one returned my calls) to make a booking. We were there early (6pm on a Sunday) and waited a good half hour unattended before I asked for water for the table. Staff were unable to make recommendations for shared starters. One main arrived a good 10 mins after the other three.
And there was a dodgy looking customer who kept wandering in and out to eat the free chips and nuts, while knocking back copious amounts of alcohol (including shots) at the bar which also functions as the main entrance area. When I asked about the dodgy customer, I was told "he's here a lot" and "he's ok".
Great food but unfortunately not a great experience.

I had forgotten how amazing Thai food is when it's done this well! "Yellow curry dish of bean curd and sweet potato in coconut milk served with steamed Jasmine rice" was so beautiful.
I had dropped in for an express lunch while I was in Remuera on an errand, and thought I could justify the $13.50 for the curry. But then I got all greedy and spent another $5.50 when I spotted an entree that twisted my arm: The very more-ish dipping sauce of crushed peanuts & cucumber with Deep fried fish cakes was so tasty.
I liked sitting beside the calming water-feature, and enjoyed the lightness of the restaurant, with a view out through the glass wall full of windows, to a lot of greenery.
Definitely will return for dinner. My only critique is that it was a little hard to find.

I went to Thai Village with my boyfriend. The staff was friendly and helpful when we asked them about their recommendations. We ordered curry and pad thai noodles. They were very delicious! I love noodles and this was the best pad thai noodles I ever had in Auckland! I recommend anyone who loves pad thai noodles to try this place out.

Been there on numerous times as a big group and as a dinner for 2 and it's always been great! Great food, friendly service and beautiful atmosphere (love the little hut outside).
Love the dessert, the hot banana fritters is a must have!

Excellent food and ambiance. However, don't rely on the online reservation system. We made a reservation on the day required but no confirmation email received. Fortunately we were accommodated!

Dinner | 25th March 2011 | Great food, great service and great value for money! This, in addition to the vibrant decor makes this a very pleasant restaurant to dine at.
Highly recommended if you love really good Thai food with superb flavours and aromas.

My favourite Thai restaurant in Auckland.
My family has been coming here for years and the food is always exceptional with the Yellow Chicken Curry a personal favorite of ours
The food is beautiful, fresh, and mouth watering, I will continue to come back.

I and my friends are always on the hunt for Thai food. This is our favorite in Auckland. We normally order their flaming chicken and chicken green curry. We have never been disappointed about the quality of food and services despite the fact that we have been their customers more than two years.

Thai Village is a fantastic Thai restaurant. I and my family have dinner at the Thai Village regularly. The service is spectacular and the food is fresh and large portioned. Anything can be adjusted to your personal requests. I think Chicken Yellow Curry here must be one of the best :)

My last meal at this restaurant was two months ago with my best friend. This place is great. The owners are so friendly. They can make anything you request. The food is beautiful, fresh, and delicious. I will go there again if I have a chance :)

Have eaten dinner here twice in the past 4 months with my family. The food is wonderfully fresh and fragrant and the service is very attentive. Even on a busy Friday night when we didn't have a reservation they found space for us. A little more expensive than the average Thai restaurant, but would definitely return.

Was recommended by Thai Tourist Board.
Very disappointing, food was average and service was terrible. Was not that busy and had to wait very long time. I would not return
