9 Reviews for Chang Siam Thai Restaurant
We’ve dined in, and had takeaways from Chang Siam several times, and its always lived up to expectation!
They have without a doubt the MOST incredible Salt & Pepper Squid you’ll ever eat!!
I have visited Thailand a few times and love Thai food, until now Pad Thai was my favourite and I would typically stick to it. After having been to Chang Siam I now have 3 new favourite dishes (can’t decide which is best!) namely the Chilli Jam Duck, Beef Massaman and Macadamia Chicken.
Topping it all off is the friendly service and the prices are all very fair! Already looking forward to going back again!!
A few months ago my partner and I had a pretty terrible meal. I ordered foolishly, sidestepping my favourite super-spicy thai dishes and opted for the mild Gang Massaman. Sadly the potatoes where practically raw they were so undercooked. The meat was not the melt-in-mouth one would expect but quite tough. Not only that, the hunks were huge ! No knife provided or delivered when requested. I made do with chewing off the side of my fork. Verdict: 1.5 stars.
So, on a brighter note, we visited with a larger group a couple of weeks back. This time the Yum Nua and the Larb Gai were pretty good, much more punch than previous (don’t hold back on the lime juice & chilli guys!). The chilli sauce served with the whole fish was exceptional. A couple of the curries were fairly pedestrian but our friends who ordered them seemed happy enough. Pity our request for more rice was either ignored or forgotten.
So all in all I’m happy to upgrade from 2 to 3 stars.

I’m struggling with how to review Chang Siam. I’m absolutely delighted that Kerikeri has a Thai restaurant but sadly just a little underwhelmed by the food.
The staff are lovely, the dining area clean and appropriately decorated. The menu, at a glance, looks exactly as it should with all the classic Thai offerings.
But …. and this is only after one meal, the food just didn’t have the punch and zing I’d expect. I have travelled to Thailand on numerous occasions and adore the food – I cook it regularly at home. Chang Siam just didn’t quite measure up.
To be fair I WILL return and will re-write this review if I am proven wrong after a second sitting. Good Luck
The food was fresh, the staff were ubber friendly and imported singha you couldn’t get much better, drove 30Min’s from Whangaroa to try it out! This was some of the best restaurant Thai food i have had, the rest was on the street stalls in Thailand. Well done!!!
Another fantastic meal Sunday 6th May, party of 4 & we all enjoyed it Thanks.
sat 22/9 we rang for a takeaway 5.50pm got an answer phone which said leave name & phone number we never received a call back (till Sunday 23rd at 11.40) no way to run a restaurant/takeaway we have had great restaurant meals in the past. we were so disappointed in your service.
