We go here often it is one of our favourite places to eat, the food is cheap and tasty, lots of flavour. We have always had a good experience here and love coming. If you want somewhere that has good prices and great food this is the place.

Our family went to K. sing to celebrate Father’s day, but it didn’t open. So we crossed the road to here.Very busy that day. We had to wait for a long time for the first dish. Dom Yum Gong (soup) was quite salty and sour, not much other flavours, a bit disappointed after at less half hour waiting. The next one was mix appetizers. All deep-fried with very dark colour that meant the oil had been used for very long time,but kids loved them. All the main courses were Kiwi style but the tastes were quite good .

The timetable when you dine at Ayutthaya will consist of something like this:

10 minutes of waiting before your orders are taken.
50 minutes before your entrees are served.
1 hour and 25 minutes before your mains are served.

Waiting an hour and twenty-five minutes for good food is ridiculous enough, but even more ridiculous when the food is sub-standard, tasteless and burnt. Nothing to compliment about the food, whatsoever.

Staff have very poor English communication skills, not being able to comprehend our requests and speaking in an incoherent manner. They should at least take the effort to be more forthcoming with customer requests and questions.

I also noticed that the only cutlery present on the table was a serving spoon and a fork. Knives were absent.
Retrospectively reflecting on this, I now understand how dangerous these knives would be, when placed in the hands of angry, frustrated diners.

When asked if I would like a doggie bag to take home my left-overs, I promptly declined. Alas, I lacked the wit then to tell the server I loved my dog too much to subject it to such abuse.

Came here for dinner last night and was immediately greeted by the most unfriendly staff! Never a smile and we always seemed to be an inconvenience. We ordered Green Chicken Curry which was average and small; thai fried rice which was burnt in some parts and spring rolls for the appetizer which were nothing to rave about. Will not bother to return. A bit of a waste of prime Jackson St real estate.

Highly recommended by a past colleague of mine for the food and prices we have since visited here on many occasions and it is by far one of our fav places to eat.

Beautiful food.

Always fresh and very good value for money.

Lovely surroundings.

Highly recommend the red wine chicken wings! Thinking about them never ceases to make my mouth water.

We find the manager always attentive and always lovely. She remembers us each time we are there which amazes me as the last time we could get here was a couple of years ago due to having a young child.

The manager works hard to ensure things tick over well.

We did have a little bit of a longer wait that usual this time however compared to many restaurants, 20 minutes for entrees was nothing and from there it was all uphill.

A great place!

I was so proud of this restaurant but not anymore. Food quality gone down. In veges there are nothing but cheap stuff. No waterchesnut, no baby corn, no baby bamboo. And the food is nothing like Thai food. I lived in Thailand four months and I know what Thai food is like. And like other person said, no smile from any staff. Head lady is like Hitler. Honestly no more Ayutthaya

I have been getting ayutthaya thai (takeaway and dine in) for over 4 years now and love it here. It is my favourite Thai restaurant in Wellington. I have been to many Thai restaurants in UK, middle east and Asia (including Thailand) and this food is up there with my top 5! Service is not exactly wonderful, but sort of reminds me of my time in Thailand, so makes it more of an authentic Thai experience! My favourites are the veggie spring rolls, red curry and pad thai. yummmmm! Check this Thai restaurant out!

Went there on a Saturday night with a group about 16. Service good but we thought the food was very average, having had tried a few Thai restaurants in Wellington that were much more authentic and tastier. Would only recommend if you don’t want your food to be too spicy. Average $20 per head sharing entrees and main courses.

I had booked the restaurant two weeks earlier, double checked and confirmed that everything was ok and a booking was there for 5 people. On the day when we arrived to my shock and horror, we discovered our booking was cancelled. We were left stranded out on the footpath. I believe that they had overbooked and so cancelled our booking. Fortunately we found a lovely place down the road- Lok Lok Steamboat-great food and lovely service.

I am currently sitting at the restaurant since I have arrived I have had extremely rude service, first the owner complains that I didn’t answer to confirm the reservation when she rang 2 hours before hand, then they bring 1 entree at a time and we have been waiting half an hour for our main. if u wanna have a bad restaurant experience come here, food is average!!!

Love the food! Its so good to know when you feel like thai, your going to be getting very satisfying and generous meals. The service is not what i would call superb, but seems more authentic the way it is. Gets a bit cold by the door, but were allowed to move.

We have had several enjoyable meals at Ayutthaya, where the food is consistently of a very high standard and home to the best roti in town. This time, we shared pork mince and prawns in a spring roll wrapper as an entree, great with sweet chilli sauce. We had a thin red chicken curry with steamed rice (charged separately) and fried rice with whole prawns for our main courses – yummy! Front of house service can be somewhat abrupt but service at the tables is prompt and efficient, with water glasses are constantly refilled. A favourite of ours, Ayutthaya is almost always full.

Our Favourite Thai Restaurant and we are regulars. in the last year we have dined there almost weekly and the food is consistently great and excellent value for money. Decor is authentic and up to date, service is attentive and food great. Give it a go whether there is two of you or twenty.

This place was fantastic! We had a group of 8 which at first seemed a little cramped but the food more than made up for it. Casual atmosphere lent to it’s charm. Definitely would recommend.

This place rocks! Best cheapest take away thai.
I have only dinned in twice but found the service and food quality equally impressive.
It is not a fine dining experience but wonderful for groups, family or a causal dinner.

the food here is usually superb, but the service sucks. there is a server who is hired specifically to lurk behind you and reach over you with a heavy water jug even if you havent had a sip of your water, the place is often closed for long periods of time for no reason, and the woman is rude both over the phone and in person

We had dinner at the restaurant yesterday and In my opinion the taste of food was very different to what we had before. I used to love going there fore deep fried fish in red curry sauce, I found now the fish seems to be cooked prior and is not crispy and the dish was served lukewarm. Pad Thai is supposed to be sweet & sour which turned out very sweet. My first experience was very good impressive,but my last two dining experience was not so good. The restaurant is tastefully decorated, restaurant staff are very friendly. I think the food should be served hot and specially fish needs to cooked on spot not precooked which is what I felt it was because of the rubbery texture. I am not sure but it seems there has been a change in the chef that’s why the difference in taste.

The food here is superb – really good – but we do not go any more because the head woman is ignorant and rude beyond the pale. I will not eat out anywhere where I am made to feel like I should kiss the restaurateur’s feet for honouring me with a table.

Learn some manners.

This would have to be one of the best thai meals ever created, my wife and I have been several times and thoroughly love the food, the only thing stopping a 5 star rating is perhaps the service could be impropveed some but fantastic fantastic meals, AAA+++
