10. Star Thai

Hey Aucklanders, do you like free food? In conjunction with review website Zomato.com, I’m giving away a $20 voucher to be used at Star Thai. To enter, fill in the entry form at the end of this post.

In celebration of Auckland Restaurant Month, I will be posting 31 quick-fire reviews on 31 restaurants and cafes in the Auckland CBD and city fringe.


The atmosphere is…star-thai-logo

The glitzy Hollywood decorations could be over the top but thankfully they have kept the decorations to the walls only. The rest of the layout is understated and classy. The night we went, it was very quiet.

Come here for…
Delicious Thai curry. Mild and sweet which was perfect for our tastes, though I’m sure you can request “HOT” if you prefer.

The most interesting thing on the menu…

  • BBQ duck

Unexpectedly wonderful…

  • Baeng Bped Yang (BBQ duck red curry)

I would come back to try…

  • Larb Pla (chopped fish salad)

Catering to…
All diets. The vegetarian dishes are clearly marked. Gluten free available on request.

Expect to spend…
$25-$35 per person

The service is…
Good. Relaxed and attentive. Drinks orders taken several times, water and rice topped up.

Avoid if…
You don’t like Thai food or curries.
