Funky little Thai restaurant in the CBD, with an exciting menu, warm, modern interior and even a desk-delivery service for busy office workers. Hip with the young crowd.
Thai Chilli offers a contemporary dining experience in the heart of the city, with bold colours on the walls, comfortable tall chairs and polished wooden floors. Because it lies in the heart of the CBD, it's popular with the corporate set during the day, with some great value $10 lunchbox takeaway deals that fly out of the door.
The kitchen will also deliver food to neighbouring office blocks, so popular are they. The service is pretty legendary here, from a well-trained, efficient group of staff who know all the dishes inside out, so don't be afraid to ask for recommendations.
Particular highlights include Gang Penang Beef Curry, Volcano Chicken, and Pla Manaow Whole Snapper. It's one of the most expansive Thai menus in the city, so you'll have to come back quite a few times to get through everything. Vegetarians alone get nearly 25 choices, pretty unique in a mainly-meat-based restaurant.
For a special occasion, you should splash out on a Banquet Set Menu and let the chefs spoil you with a dazzling array of dishes encompassing everything from soups and spring rolls, to green curries, satays and stir-fries. Drinks-wise, the wine list is surprisingly varied, and the restaurant does one of the best Strawberry Daiquiris in Auckland.
