Amazing Thai is situated in the main street of Paihia, but you may have to park around the block and walk through the mall, as there is no parking out front. Big place with plenty of seating. Quick service from very friendly staff, plus everything...More

Hi homedreams Thank you for your review. Your comment regarding the lack of authentic Thai flavour puzzles me, given the food is cooked by Thai chefs. I also note that this is the only restaurant you have ever reviewed, so there is no other Thai...More

This fabulous restaurant in the Bay of Islands has absolute bay views.We offer European breakfast, European and Thai lunches, and Thai dinners. We also cater for those who think they don't like Thai food, offering plainer options. Amazing Thai is fully licenced and can cater for large groups of up to 110 people. The food is very fresh and cooked to order by authentic Thai chefs. . We also have available a limited KIDS ONLY menu for those fussy eaters. Conferencing facilities are available within the restaurant
