My Thai Lounge - Queenstown
With great views of Lake Wakatipu, it's an obvious tip but we'll offer it up anyway - request a seat by the window.
The My Thai Lounge is an elegant lakeside Thai restaurant in Queenstown, mixing the best of authentic Thai street food with a stylish interior and an innovative menu. Window seats provide you with breathtaking views while the My Thai staff deliver attentive yet relaxed service.
Sitting beside Lake Wakatipu, the My Thai Lounge enjoys stunning views of the mountain range aptly named The Remarkables. The restaurant has a 'family' of dedicated and vastly experienced chefs and staff with years of hospitality experience. The team includes a master fruit and vegetable carver, a former Thai government food ambassador, several globe-trotting cooks and dining staff from around the world, so you're guaranteed to be well looked after.
The friendly ambience perfectly complements the tantalising and well-priced menu. Starters include traditional street style grilled pork balls, spring rolls and prawn sticks, together with delectable Chiang Mai sausage and Thai roti mussaman. For mains, dive into the chilli & basil duck or panang curry. House specials include delicious dishes like the Thai sticky pork or soft shell crab yellow curry, and if you like it hot then you can't miss the street style jungle curry.
There are also regular deals to be had - such as the $10 lunch, so do check when you're booking. My Thai guarantees to bring traditional Thai street food with a sophisticated culinary twist into Queenstown. Add to this the views like the ones you'll get here, and you'll want to come again and again during your visit.
