“Very clean, great food and service”
Reviewed 5 June 2014 via mobile

The restaurant is large, with a viewable kitchen which looks nice and clean. The food is on the pricey side for a Thai restaurant but is to be expected in the CBD when attached to a hotel. That being said the food was tasty and the service prompt.

“Awesome food, great ambience”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

It was my friend's daughter's hens night and we started at the Grasshopper at the Stamford hotel for dinner. We were in the round room, very nice. We didn't wait for long and the service was great. The food was even greater.....it's Thai food at its best I think. We would go there again.

“Reasonable feed in a nice setting”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

The Grasshopper Thai Restaurant forms part of the Stamford Plaza Hotel, and is accessible either internally via the hotel or externally. This restaurant was in a nice setting and offered a pleasant dining atmosphere, though it is a large restaurant and wasn’t very busy when I was there, so while it seemed a little empty it also kept it relatively quiet despite a boisterous group on the other side of the room. Unfortunately the meal itself was just average. There were not many vegetables included with the dish, and while there was a fair bit of beef it tended to be a bit fatty and didn’t really seem to be the best quality. Perhaps I just got a little unlucky, but that’s all I’ve got to judge by. I also thought the menu was a bit limited compared to most Thai restaurants. The meal was a reasonable price, though admittedly dearer than you often pay for Thai, perhaps a reflection of its location within the fairly upmarket hotel. The service was pretty good – quick, efficient, and polite.

“Good Service and atmosphere”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

Part of the Stamford Hotel complex, a good handy location to were we were staying. I found the service very good( especially the Manager on duty at the time), plenty of staff on to make sure you were never waiting to long for a drink or your food. The layout was interesting with many different types of areas to be seated. The food was OK for Thai and the price was reasonable considering its part of a 5* hotel. I would have liked the food to be a bit more flavoursome, it was good, guess I was expecting to be blown away, or maybe I am just fussy. Will compare to the Thai food when I am in Bangkok in a few months.

“Fantastic Thai restaurant”
Reviewed 12 April 2014

Very large Thai restaurant but doesn't take away from the quality of food/experience.

Excellent service, great food, funky fit out and interesting "open kitchen" where the chefs can be viewed cooking away.

Great night out in Auckland.
