“Best Thai food in Nelson”
Reviewed 6 April 2013

I have visited this restaurant dozens of times over the years, and have never once been disappointed. Amazing food!!! Always fresh and consistent. And I don't think we have ever had to wait more than 10-15 minutes even with a group. Can't be beaten for value for money.

“lacks authentic flavours”
Reviewed 22 November 2012

if you just want to avoid dishes at home, a meal or take away from Thai Tahuna will fill the belly. if you want a meal that sends your taste buds right back to thailand this isnt the place to come to.

we tried several of their dishes on 3 different occasions, none was outstanding. all lacked authentic flavours and tasted like your average supermarket bulk produced readymade sauce that anyone can prep at home. no distinct difference between their curries. seems like they all come from one big pot that is then spiced up as required. especially the mussaman and panaeng curry which usually are such different flavours disappointed.
