Fantastic food, lovely outlook. A really interesting mix of south East Asian Cuisine. Friendly service , and popular takeaway on counter. It won’t be the most life changing meal of your life, but it’s bloody good! I’ll be going back.

Dime here quite often. Different options for different Thai restaurants. Worth a visit if you want a nice atmosphere with good service. Food is ok

We had a selection of 5 different starters. All were very tasty and excellent quality. On reflection, we probably ordered 1 starter too many because we were very full after we had eaten them. All washed down with a bottle of white wine.

A great variety of food to try according to your taste buds. Noodles, rice, stir fry, curries etc are all available to try at this popular Thai restaurant. Good service and able to cater for many large tables of food without long waiting times.

Menu very comprehensive and reasonably priced, slightly different from traditional Thai. Service OK from inexperienced waitress, but not a problem. Wine list quite good and reasonably priced. Food excellent in terms of quality, freshness and presentation. This is worth a visit.

Coming from Rotorua a couple of times a year we always make an effort to go to Cafe de Laos, simply because the food is so good. The Cafe de Laos special is my favourite so I usually get that and my partner gets something...More
