Very disappointed. Tried the place because of the good reviews but the guy could barely understand me on the phone, our order came without rice which is usually complimentary and we weren’t informed, ordered a medium and it’s way hotter than I expected and tastes awful. In fact I’ve had three mouthfuls and am throwing it out. Ordered the mixed entree as well which is $9 and was very small. I won’t be going back.

We eat at Thai Yum all the time, simply the best for Thai food.
Love it every time we eat here and love it more when we do take away because with that huge portion in each box it would be enough for my two main meal.
So look out for me I am your regular customer

Tried this place once. I am not a big Thai eater and I decided to make a trip here given the excellent reviews. The service was lovely and food was delicious. Not to mention the prices were fantastic.Very honest and filling meal which was made very quickly (cant have been longer than 7 minutes for 3 dishes)!

Hi, my partner and I have been ordering once a week for about a year, I would say that the food is great about 90% of the time. Whenever we have had bad food Thai Yum has been good to deal with. But tonight we have found a large blow fly in one of our meals and this is in winter. I’m sorry to say but after this disgusting find we will never eat from Thai Yum again.
There has to be better standards and there is below average.

Very tasty food, bought pad thai(?), didn’t wait longer than 5 min, and it came with big portion, my mom and me shared one takeout and we both were very full after the meal! but as other ppl said, too less table. But will definitely come back for more takeouts:)

They claim that they don’t use MSG… I don’t know if I believe that because the food is way too yummy.
We go there all the time and have NEVER been disappointed, it’s weird because the food is really amazing and the price is really low… I always leave feeling like I should have been charged more.

Thai Yum is outstanding! My wife and I will often get home from work and decide we want Thai food – and Thai Yum absolutely delivers.

So far the only ‘complaint’ is that we can’t eat more! HIGHLY reccomend the Chicken Satay and the Pra Ram, but order anything and you will not be disappointed!

Grabbed some takeaways from here the other night, Huge portions, super tasty food, I agree, would be good to have more seats to dine in, but it’s perfect for a local takeout. Will be back!

loveeeee the food and service! portions were reasonable and the food tasted fresh and nice. However, I really do hope that they open a bigger place that can actually seat more people, was planning to bring my family there but don’t think the restaurant can fit more than 4 people at a table. But! definitely going back there for thai food :)

I just got back from Thailand and this place didn’t disappoint for authentic taste! We went here expecting cheap take away (and with that never the highest expectations for flavour) but were pleasantly surprised. Highly recommend the pancakes and chicken laab. Will be back asap!

I had to visit this place being a Thai food lover and reading a great review about the place in Viva supplement in the herald. We arrived early when it opened at 4.30pm for dinner(they also open for lunch) and we were lucky we did. The lovely owner told us as soon as the article was published, that night they had to turn people away as they were so busy. No sooner had we been seated that it started to pump and now I know why!

The food in a word was delicious! We started with the fishcakes and the curry puffs. You can’t go past the curry puffs. I can honestly say they are the best I’ve ever tried. Melt in your mouth,beautiful texture and flavour,I could’ve eaten many more.

Our mains were next and we ordered the Choo Chee Goong (stir-fried prawns with red curry paste, kaffir lime leaves, peas and coconut cream) and the larb,a thai salad with minced chicken,fish sauce,lime and herbs. They were just as good as the appetizers The Choo Chee Goong was superb, didn’t feel heavy and the prawns were perfectly cooked. The larb was an experience for the taste buds..a perfect mixture of savoury and sour.

We drove out of the area to get there and it did not disappoint. Next time I’ll try some different options. There is seating but it is pretty limited, a couple of tables and a bench with seating but it is more of a takeaway venue. The only question remains…when do they open a restaurant..please!!!!

An above average Thai food experience. The spring rolls entrees were delicious as were our mains (Honey Prawns 12/10). The staff are very pleasant and willing to do anything to make you happy. My only gripe is the lack of seating, but I would eat those honey prawns standing on my head. We highly recommend this place, and the honey prawns….and my wife loves the chicken cashew nut dish too… you gotta go.. thanks guys see ya Sunday

Mmmm, I can’t wait to go back here. The food was fresh and tasty and the serving sizes very generous. The meals are very reasonably priced and there was copious hot green tea. The service was attentive and friendly and we hardly had to wait for our meals. It’s just what you want for an delicious, affordable meal out – and they do takeaway too!

The best Curry Puffs in Auckland. Last night we had a great meal here.We enjoyed Red Curry Prawns, Satay Chicken, Beef with garlic, Yellow Chicken Curry, Honey Chicken and Five Star Chicken. All meals were of an excellent standard and generous portions. Prices were very reasonable. We will certainly be back and will be telling all our friends.

AMAZING thai!!
really fresh ingredients and lots of them -theres always some left over for lunch the next day.
the owners are extremely friendly -she was telling us that she only wants to provide great food, -even though it costs them bit more, so that the customers are happy (and will come back)
we drive a long way to come to get thai from here, passing heaps of other thai places on the way!!
p.s. try the curry puffs -they’re hand made and are freakin great!!

The cute, wee woman who takes orders is oh so helpful & friendly and her chef husband makes amazing, fresh food. Portions are huge and I usually take half of my Pad Thai for lunch the next day.
