Spent a night in methven and weren't sure what to eat. We decided on this place and we're very happy. The young lady serving us was very nice and helped us decide on delicious food to take away. Really happy we got our food here.

Fantastic Thai food. We were just passing through Methven and decided to stop for dinner. I'm vegetarian and there was not much on the menu. When I asked the waitress said they could make me whatever I liked, I asked for something not on the menu and they whipped it up for me! It was delicious! We'll be back when... More

We loved the buffet which gave us the opportunity to try different dishes and flavours. The service was excellent and we were amazed to find this restaurant in a small town such as Methven!

Thank goodness there is a place with more than pub food! We had normal menu meals and the buffet, which is a great price for what you get. Chicken satay was a large serve and very tasty. Small but good wine selection and icecream for the kids for dessert. Quaint but hospitable and had a good atmosphere.

There's not a lot of choice in Methven on a mid week night in winter; yep even in snow season. It's a pleasant enough little town geared up for the ski visitors. As in most country towns, dinner is done earlier. The Thai Chilli Restaurant offers authentic Thai; however with such a lot of Thai on offer every where, you... More

Pleasant casual atmosphere. We were attracted to the buffet that was OK and didn't disappoint providing value for money. The chicken dishes were delicious and very tender.
