I love this place, the star of Hataitai. It's both takeaway, and BYO restaurant, the food is tasty, fresh, well cooked, and service is prompt, and polite. It's also vary fairly priced.

Convenient location in the Haitaitai village. Not the best Thai food I've had but it's super convenient and definitely better than average. Nice seating area to wait for your takeaways separate to the actual restaurant part. This is important to me as I hate waiting for takeaways awkwardly with a full restaurant staring at you (or having to hide in... More

I ordered take-aways tonight and was really impressed. Food ready really fast (less than 10 minutes) and so so tasty. I got the mixed appetiser and the beef massaman curry and both were delicious. Very reasonable price and friendly service too.

My partner and I usually take away our food from Nakhon Thai because they are fast, the staff are very polite and it's good Thai food considering we live in Wellington. We ate in the restaurant once and the service was excellent, price good and the food great. I recommend this place in the very sweet little village of Hataitai... More

We drove a considerable distance to eat at Nakhon Thai on my birthday. We used to eat there (and at their previous location) around 9-10 years earlier. Amazingly, the owner recognised us and even remembered that I liked a little bowl of fish sauce and chilli on the side! The food was again excellent. The quality of each dish is... More

There are some other reviews for this pace listed as Divine Thai but for as long as I have lived near this restaurant it has been Nakhon Thai. The best Thai food is in Thailand however this place does an excellent selection of entrees - easily the best curry puffs I've had. The rest of the menu contains the usual... More

This great little restaurant is tucked away in Hataitai. Great Thai food and excellent service. Has space for 50+ people seated and the take away area is very busy! I have eaten here about 4 times and each visit has been excellent. After each visit I am wanting to return. Medium price range. Good sized servings.
