Quality Thai Food – About
Thai food has always been a passion. “Thai Chef” was founded in 1999 by Natttachai Changrattanachaichok (known more commonly as Chang).

It began humbly enough in Napier as a weekend food business – ran out of a caravan. Regularly attending the local markets, Chang started to gather a loyal following.

Chang decided to take this success a step further into full-time work. Chang’s caravan took up regular residence serving delicious Thai food outside his house on Kennedy Road in 2000. Thai Chef Restaurant now has branches all across New Zealand – Wellington, Auckland (Parnell Auckland and Titirangi Auckland), Napier, Whangarei, Christchurch and New Plymouth. We have takeaway options, lunch menu options, dinner menu options and even delivery options within some of our locations.
