The Taste of Asia in Mount Maunganui, conveniently located right on the main street, with wide doors opening onto the street for alfresco dining. It is the warm and relaxing place where friends get together, where family members come to have a great meal, and where the business community comes to wine and dine.

We have four, long-serving, hand chosen authentic Thai chefs, one with 26 years experience, and a further two chefs (two brothers) each with 16 years experience in creating genuine Thai dishes, and they have helped to create our diverse and flavourful menu to suit every customer, from the extra hot dish to the mild vegetarian.

Thai food is internationally famous for being healthy. The herbs used in our dishes not only provide unique flavour, but they also have varying degrees of medicinal and therapeutic benefits. Low in calories but rich in taste.

Our friendly staff from many nations await the opportunity to serve you in a traditional atmosphere with Thai décor, and take the time to talk to you about food, wines, and drinks. We have three areas in which to dine – outside, in the main restaurant or in the semi-private room at the back of the restaurant.

Our extensive menu also includes some Asian, Malaysian and Vietnamese dishes. The Taste of Asia boasts a large takeaway menu, allowing you to enjoy our fine cuisine at home or on the nearby beautiful beach. We are open six days a week, and closed on Tuesdays only.
