Over the last 25 years, The Thai Restaurant has dedicated itself to provide the authentic Thai cuisine to the community of Rotorua. Our guests from all over the World have participated in the journey of making our Dream Come True in the Sulphur city.

Being the first Thai Restaurant of Rotorua, we serve a vast variety of the Thai cuisine from various regions of Thailand and hold pride in maintaining our standards and services over the years. We are delighted to provide high quality and fresh ingredients in our dishes which are maintained by our Head Chef from Thailand who is well versed in his national cuisine. He has been working with us ever since we first opened and ensured that throughout our years of operation we only hire people from Thailand in our Kitchen so there are no compromise with the guest expectations of our food and desserts in any manner.

We believe that the sole reason for our success over the years comes from our loyal customers, friends and families who always chose to dine-in with us and order-take from us and appreciate them all for continually believing in us and choosing us amongst their favorite dine-in venues.

Come, relax and enjoy the authentic Thai cuisine with a friendly and attentive service amongst an ambience reflecting our culture at The Thai Restaurant, 1141 Tutanekai Street, Rotorua 3010.

We are open for Lunch from 12:00 – 2:30 PM and our Dinner timings are from 5:00 PM till Late and are available to host big groups and private events.
