Overall Rating: 45%
In general, I thought all of the dishes that I’ve tried here had a lot of room for improvement. But for practical reasons and cost constraints, Thai Tekapo served as a decent option for a filling and not-quite-so terrible meal. Although most of the dishes here were salty, the restaurant offered a fairly wide variety of options for food, and hopefully the other dishes are better than the ones I had.

Amiable staff, offered takeaway options, and also accepted Visa and Mastercard. Thai Tekapo was fuss-free with little decoration and slightly dark and dingy, but conveniently located in the town center next and to Four Square supermarket.
– Food Experience –
1) Chicken Nibbles:
One of the better dishes that I tried here, the chicken wings were fragrant, and the Thai sauce was sweet and wasn’t spicy at all.
2) Pad Thai Chicken:
The Pad Thai with chicken was also, thankfully, decent, although I thought it lacked some of the usual toppings that the dish normally came with.
1) Pad Gra-Pow:
Too salty, and no basil leaves could be found.
2) Thai Green Curry Chicken:
The curry was too milky, sweet, and rich, and the dish generally lacked other flavors.
3) Tom Yum Mixed Vegetables:
Wasn’t spicy and sour enough, but overdid it on the salt instead.
