Reviews of Tusk Thai Restaurant

590 Dominion Road, Balmoral, Auckland

  1. Tusk Thai Restaurant


    My friends and I decided we would go out for a nice meal, and decided to visit Tusk off the cuff. We waited to be seated for 10 minutes despite the restaurant being empty as they just did not seem bothered about sitting us. What's more we had to wait over half an hour for someone to take our order. Upon arrival of the food, it looked appealing however our spring roll entree was average at best. It tasted like it was out of a box we could have bought at the supermarket. For the main course we had to send it back to the kitchen as the pork was so undercooked. One of my friends even ended up with food poisoning later. Upon sending it back we received no apology from the wait staff whatsoever and we were refused when we stated that we wanted a new dish, and ended up paying for the undercooked one. Having consistently eaten out in Auckland area I generally think the restaurants are good, but Tusk was a major disappointment and left a bitter feeling afterwards. Service staff were unfriendly and it was not value for money.

    Quite expensive but nice tidy environment. We haven't been back since because of the high pricing.

    Very bad experience, not at all a family friendly resturant. manager was very bitchy about kids in resturant. manager told us not to bring in our kids unless they are big enough to not make any noise. i would never ever go to this resturant again. this is the last time we will spend $400 at this resturant.

    When I go to a resturant, I like to ordert the biggest, most exotic thing I can find. And Tusk didn't fail to deliver. There was a whole chicken on the menu so I thought "I'll have that" and when it came it definitely turned heads. It was served standing up on a red hot plate, bubbling, hissing and steaming while the waiter brought it to me. The dish was spectacular both visually and orally! What a blend of spices... mmmmm....

    The food was delicious, and the environment was cosy looking, although we found it cold sitting near the window. Entertainment book voucher can make this an economical dinner out.

    The Tusk has been around for a while now and doesn't fail to deliver on consistent quality food - although it is a bit pricey. The flaming chicken is a popular choice for diners and is worth the wait.
