“Excellent Value for Money”
Reviewed 12 December 2012

The food is consistently good and it's such good value for money. You are guaranteed a fabulous meal and great service in a pleasant environment. This has to be the best Thai restaurant in the area. The staff really do look after you. It's BYO wine which really keeps the cost down, and prices over the bar are reasonable too. I wouldn't go anywhere else for Thai food. They also do great takeaway food

“This has to be the best Thai ever”
Reviewed 16 November 2012 via mobile

I have been going to this place for the last five or so years and it had to be the best Thai is have ever tasted. The flavours are consistent, it never fails.
It has come to be the only place I go to throughout New Zealand as other places disappoint. Keep it up and go there if you haven't been here yet!

“Pretty darn good”
Reviewed 3 March 2012

Have eaten here about 8-10 times the past 18 months, and had quite a few takw-aways as well.
Hard to fault really. Mid priced - dishes $20 to $25, good range of cuisine and styles. Thai waitresses are charming and friendly.
Presentation has just a little extra - you need to go and find out.

Is BYO and fully licensed - Charges corkage at reasonable level - so we take our own preferences of wines.
Try to get table middle or rear, away from front part where takeaway patrons come to collect food.

They are very familiar with Gluten Free as requirement for some people. Dine in menu does not show it, but takeway menu does - needs dine in menu updting. But about half dishes are GF, and a few more can be made so upon request to chefs.
Nothing ever seems to be a problem to them.

“Out of this world”
Reviewed 12 February 2012

The food, service and overall experience of this Thai restaurant leave all the other in Hawkes Bay for dead..... This is the one to go to forget trying the rest it is the BEST....
Food is always great and the people that run the place are out of this world....
Come to Taradale and forget the rest, Thai Lotus is the one

my overall imperssion was very good, I have been to this place twice before in recent years and both the food and service have been consistantly good,i will deffinatly return
