In the hearts of the discerning diners of Remuera, Thai Village holds a special place. Amid a sea of Asian-fusion restaurants, this iconic establishment stands out for its steadfast commitment to traditional Thai cuisine. And, after 16 months of renovations, the doors have again opened, revealing a stunningly chic interior and a breathtaking glass pavilion just waiting for sunny summer days (which are hopefully on the horizon).
The menu remains much the same as it has for the last 15 years, with generous portions and a flavour profile unmatched in the area. Fans will be delighted to find all their old favourites alongside a number of new classics. The tender grilled lamb rack with Chef Savang’s special sauce, the Mook Fish with its crumbed market fish, Thai herbs, orange and lemon dressing, and the Red Duck Curry are all must-order dishes. And remember to pair your meal with one of the playful cocktails from the bar, like the Pandan Colada, a unique take on the tropical classic.
Lunchtime at Thai Village is just as enticing, with its Bottomless Brunch adding a touch of sophistication to the dining experience. This refined offering showcases some of the restaurant’s most beloved dishes alongside an array of celebratory drinks, perfect for a leisurely Saturday in the gorgeous glass pavilion, designed in line with the new 1050 precinct.
But for now, whether it’s a comforting weeknight meal you’re craving (to offer delicious respite from this terrible weather) or you are simply planning a dinner with friends, the new-and-improved Thai Village delivers on all fronts.
Monday — Sunday, 5.30pm until 10pm.
