The staff are lovely, if a little too laid back at times. I had to work to get their attention a few times. The food may be too bland for folk who like their food spicy but there is nothing here to upset the average palate. You can ask for extra chilli which is happily provided. We went for my... More

This lovely, popular place is a highlight on the Te Atatu Peninsula. The staff are friendly and attentive (they keep an eye on things like the level of water and rice at your table) and the atmosphere is ambient and relaxing. There is a good variety of excellent food, including vegetarian options - I loved the vegetarian green curry. Takeaway... More

I recently ate here as we were staying in Te Atatu with family and they suggested this restaurant. The staff were very attentive and recommended certain dishes. The food was delicious, we ordered spring rolls and chicken satay then we ordered 2 curries.. Very yummy! Also we used a 25% voucher through the entertainment book. Would definitely recommend!

We have been here many times over the years and are always impressed with how well they run their restaurant. No matter how busy it is, the staff are really on to it and make sure your food is brought out quickly and that your water is always full. The meals are really well priced for the amount you get...

Food is good with lot of variety. But don't go for same curry in soup and main dish. You will feel all tastes same. Starters are ok. There are leas options for vegetarians but in non-veg the food is yum. My friend was a little disappointed with PadThai but it was ok for me. Fish was great with awesome gravy... More

Te Atatu Peninsula, historically, has not enjoyed a reputation for fine dining. Yet, Thai Peninsula has been serving up delicious, authentic, Thai food with charm, style and efficiency for years. Having lived in Asia in the past for many years I know that getting it just right back in NZ is a hard ask for any Asian restaurant. But they... More

Lovely waiting staff and definitely no shortage of waiting staff. Very attentive. After ordering a meal we waited less that 10 minutes before being served which was great and the meal itself was large and beautiful! Highly recommended.

A busy place so bookings would be important. We were in a group & the entire group were most impressed! Certainly we will return: and yes children... More

We went to thai peninsula for business dinner. Food was amazing. Fresh veges stir fried to perfection and full of flavour. Great service and very speedy. We arrived at opening time of 5pm and by 6ish the place was full. Highly recommend you try if you love Thai.
