Waited over 40 minutes for 2 takeaway orders. And the guy tried stating...oh well that's how long it takes sometimes ...lame! With only 2 tables of people in the restruant and being before dinner service I find this unacceptable...and he was a jerk. My pad thai tasted great but was soon dry I had to put soy sauce on just...

An inaccurate and totally misleading review. Chang Siam has a very busy takeaway business because it provides high-quality food at a very competitive price. This customer was not stood waiting for forty minutes but there was a waiting time for orders of 40 minutes. All the staff work to an order sheet in order to avoid customers having to stand... More

We had loved visiting here when in Keri but our latest visit will be our last, the food had changed a lot, my vegetarian spring rolls were full of frozen mixed vegetables unlike the many times before this, and one of them was some kind of seafood which unfortunately I found out after biting into it and I am allergic...

I can assure all readers that the food has not changed in the five years that Chang Siam has been open. As with many Thai restaurants making spring rolls the best consistency and freshest taste comes from frozen vegetables. We have always made them this way. Regarding the prawn and cheese roll I am extremely sorry for this error. Every... More

We were greeted by the pleasant host and recommended to take a table outside as it was a lovely hot summer day. We tried a local Pinot Gris which was lovely. The prawn starter ( can't remember the name) was crisp, fresh and fried goodness. I had the beef salad which packed a punch of flavours and was very fresh,... More

We were recommended this place by the people at our fantastic Airbnb. The food was good. We enjoyed the money bags and satay chicken for entrees. The Massaman beef curry was great and the stir fry chicken with chili and cashew nuts was good. The negative was the roti bread. The restaurant had been really busy all night and did... More

The decor recreated the experience of being in Thailand. The room is decorated in Thai relics and wonderful music played throughout our dinner. We were also able to order Chang, Singha and Tiger beer that is from Thailand. The food was well presented but the flavour was disappointing. The Pad Thai was a little sweet and didn't have very many... More

Description
Chang Siam Thai Restaurant is set in beautiful countryside in Kerikeri and is just a few minutes walk from the 'world famous in Kerikeri' Rainbow Falls. The Head Chef grew up cooking with his mum in Thailand and he and his Thai team create the most delicious authentic Thai cuisine. The chefs blend authentic Thai flavours to create sensational dishes and offer a “chef’s special” menu, which is immensely popular. There is an extensive vegetarian section and also Thai dishes for young adults. The extensive wine list is professionally matched to Thai food and is competitively priced. Lunches, takeaway and dinners available every day except Tuesday.Service is a top priority for the whole team and the restaurant has already become widely known for both its outstanding food and attentive (but not intrusive) staff. The whole atmosphere is enhanced by a pleasant décor, live jazz music on Friday nights.
