I am a regular at this place! Its cheap, delicious, and a great spot to take a group of friends. They provide efficient service and meals are always hot and cooked to perfection. The food is in quite large servings but usually too good to leave some for lunch the next day ;) They offer seafood, chicken, meat and vegetarian options – its a place the whole group can enjoy :)

I go there with my friends for lunch/dinner regularly. At aroy food always come out very quick. If you are looking for reasonable priced tasty authentic Thai food, this is the place to go. My personal favorite is Phad thai and roast duck on rice.

The overall atmosphere wasn’t that great, and I was a bit disappointed with my dish (Garlic Pepper Pork). The pork seemed quite soggy.

Went on a Saturday evening, even though they were very busy food was came out fast and was very tasty.
Customer service was average. Would definitely go there again.

As with any eatery or other place where service is a key element to the overall experience, it is not too hard to talk politely to those serving as fellow human beings, not as 2nd class citizens, as the previous reviewer seems to imply!

I’ve been into both the Cuba Street and Courtenay Place A-Roys and have always found the staff very pleasant and helpful.

The menu choice is excellent and covers most if not all tastes and the food is always superbly presented and pretty quickly cooked too.

Sometimes, you even have pigeons for company when the doors are open and when school has finished, it seems that there are plenty of youngsters there, albeit waiting for staff friends to finish their shifts!

The Courtenay outlet has a different and less welcoming feel to it and if you choose the tables, as opposed to the two bar stools near the door, you will find yourself feeling far too short. Whilst trendy looking, the cube style ‘chairs’ are far too small/low and make for an uncomfortable dining experience.

That said, the food is as good as Cuba Street and some staff fluctuate between the two outlets, so you get to recognize them.

Please make an effort to engage with the staff, not treat them with disdain, as is the norm in Wellington.

A-Roy is one of the newer SE Asian cuisine joints in Wellington Central and it’s a chain store as well. Initially pretty skeptical, but curious, it was a while till i got round to giving it a try, and while the food was of passable caliber, it was hardly top notch. The pluses for this place include it’s handy Cuba street location, it’s right near the Bucket Fountain/Left Bank area which is handy, but keep in mind there are a whole bunch of quality eateries around here – and several of which serve similar cuisine – competition. The other big bonus is the huuuge menu – there’s a lot of dishes on offer, so the you’ll get repeat value out of the place, and are more likely to find something you’re in the mood for – even if it isn’t of amazing calibre. The service is pretty cold and heartless to but that’s normal for most Asian places, but the food comes out fairly quick. Worth a try, but the food doesn’t pack the flavour punch of some of the btter places.
