I have travelled many countries and mostly eat Thai food as my daily staple. I'm amazed by the quality and taste. It's as close as you could get away from Thailand. It's value for money and I really enjoyed my lunch there. The service was excellent, polite and efficient.

Yet another great meal at Arrow Thai. The food here is real Thai, not the sweet western version many reataurants serve. The chef is a warm and friendly person, as well as being an expert in the kitchen. Definitely recommend.

Went to Arrow Thai on Sat. night and got meals for five to takeaway. Ordered by phone and they were ready when they said, brilliant. The meals were fantastic, plenty of everything. We even had some left over, which is saying something with my lot. Would highly recommend having a meal here, not too expensive and very, very good. .

Sat outside and enjoyed the scenery. The food was good, but could have been a bit spicier for my tastes. Service was very good and it seemed to be busy seeing it was later on in the days

A charming little takeaway. Serving authentic Thai food. Quick service and watch the chefs knock your food up in front of you. Very reasonable price wise. Courteous service. Highly recommended.

Ordered the chicken and cashew nut dish for $12.50 which had barely any chicken in it. When I questioned the manager he said that was measured by the kitchen and standard and if I wanted more to order the option of the main menu. Really disappointing attitude and a really expensive dish for what I got. Better options at Slow... More

Chicken and cashew dish with 3 tiny bits of chicken. When pointed out we were simply told this was the serving size. An expensive chicken dish with barely any chicken. The explanation was poor and unacceptable. If you don't mind paying for expensive rice. This is really all they offer. Very disappointed and wouldn't go back. Another table bedside us... More

We had planned on a takeaway meal but the restaurant was so cosy and warm that we stayed to eat inhouse. The meal was served quickly and was delicious.

Arrow Thai Food is a cute little Thai restaurant serving exceptionally delicious Thai cuisine that is value for money. Situated on the sunny side of historic Arrowtown and nestled adjacent to the Arrow River, outdoor dining is a very pleasant way to spend an evening. Popular with locals, a takeaway option is also available. Friendly staff who greet you with a smile endeavour to provide the best of service. Extensive tofu and vegetarian menu too!
