We just choose this place at random for dinner out & were pleasantly surprised, the service was great the staff attentive but not over bearing. The selection on the menu was amazing with something like 47 options available... something for everyone! My wife ordered the crispy duck & after tasting it I wish I had ordered that too - it...

Don't normally eat Asian food but tried this with a group of friends recently. We were a bit late in the evening and had no booking. We were nicely welcomed and orders taken. Really enjoyed the meal. Good prices. Friendly staff. Would definitely go back. Nice decor and surroundings

We obtained a good table even though we hadnt booked on a busy Saturday night. Our extremely charming Finnish waitress was most attentive and professional and we had a great time and the food was good value and very tasty. It was a great atmosphere and the owner Kirti also made us very welcome. All in all a lovely night... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant. There was plenty to choose from on the menu but no indication of what chilli level they were or could be. There was no mention that we could find in the menu of how we could ask for the chilli level. Even on ordering it through our waiter and stating one dish... More

Having walked around trying to find somewhere to eat and whilst walking past this place smelling wonderful aromas this place did not disappoint! The staff were very friendly and the decor very nice.

The Taste of Asia in Mount Maunganui, conveniently located right on the main street, with wide doors opening onto the street for alfresco dining. It is the warm and relaxing place where friends get together, where family members come to have a great meal, and where the business community comes to wine and dine. We have four, long-serving, hand chosen authentic Thai chefs, one with 26 years experience, and a further two chefs (two brothers) each with 16 years experience in creating genuine Thai dishes, and they have helped to create our diverse and flavourful menu to suit every customer, from the extra hot dish to the mild vegetarian. Thai food is internationally famous for being healthy. The herbs used in our dishes not only provide unique flavour, but they also have varying degrees of medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Low in calories but rich in taste.
