Diamond in the Rough – Best Thai food in the city. Doesn't look like much from the outside (right across from Furniture for a Cause), but they've done some renovations inside and made it look surprisingly good. Nice family business-- Love the sweet woman that operates the place. Order the chicken Pad See Ew. Just the right amount of sauce, and I can't even begin to describe the flavor. The spring rolls are delicious and crispy. I am apparently starving for them right now!!
You'll think you're in a foreign country or heaven. – I've traveled all around the U.S. and never before did I know such a great restaurant was located in my own town. It's the best homemade tasting, high quality, hole-in-the-wall, Thai food I've ever had.
It sets a new standard for all other restaurants. The service, the presentation, and even the reputation are all leveraged incredibly high.
I ordered an egg-roll appetizer (pretty cliche, yet the best I'd ever had). I've had homemade Korean and Filipino before, and this tasted just as fresh. Warm and compelling. Soothing all over the body.
For a soup I had a Wanton soup, the waitress recommended lemons and I was so busy with my appetizer I didn't know what condiments to get. It was a great choice.
My friend ordered the Thai Coffee, while I got the Thai Tea. They're served in long glasses with cream at the top. Extremely delicious, they were like desserts.
By the time my main entree arrived, the Lemon Grass Chicken with Jasmine Rice, I was already completed satisfied. The main course was exceptional. I had to take most of it home because it was so much.
Overall, the quality of service for the low prices are almost unbelievable for such an awe-inspiring and delicious restaurant.
I've never left such a large tip before in my life.
Amazing Thai Food in San Antonio, Texas – By far the best Thai Food I have had in years, since my friend shut his restaurant down and moved back to Thailand. He taught me to cook with simplicity and care. Thai Dee has met my challenge of finding a restaurant that could compare to mine and my friends cooking and flavors. I have searched all over Texas and several other states. Thai Dee has opened up new hope in me that there are other restaurants I can go to and satisfy my love for Thai Food. Thai Dee actually introduced me to a new twist on one of my favorite curry dishes. Chicken Green Curry Noodles and Panang Curry Noodles, they serve the curry over noodles instead of rice. I could not get enough. I ate at 2 other San Antonio Thai restaurants and then found this one. I ate here every meal until I had to go home. The Tom Kha soups are excellent and the Curry Noodle dishes are addictive. Hope you enjoy this place as much as I did. Service is prompt and friendly. If I lived in San Antonio I would be a regular. I will miss this place.
BEST and most AUTHENTIC Thai restaurant – This is REAL Thai food. Not some americanized concoction that lacks the medley of aromas and flavors authentic Thai food has to offer. Having been spoiled by a Thai chef trained in Thailand who taught me that Thai food is to be served on a bed of jasmine rice and eaten with a fork and spoon, Thai Dee is the only restaurant that comes close to the thai cuisine I've sampled. Their food is full of flavor!! I had the ginger fish which was the perfect balance of sweet and spicy (you have to eat the hot peppers too:) along wih a perfect glass of Thai tea. From its intimate environment to it's excellent service, and vast selection of REAL thai cuisine (I've yet to try everything, but I will!), Thai Dee is as close to a great home cooked meal in Thailand as you can get!!!!
thai first timer – This is my first time posting and first time eating Thai food. The waitress was nice and recommended khee Mao from the noodle section and it was great. Spicy and tasty, I put it down like I was at a hot dog eating contest on the 4th of July. Since this is my first time I didn't have anything to compare it to but I'd still recommend it. The outside is a little shady but don't be fooled. I was on my way to eat somewhere else but turned around to give it a shot and I'm happy I did. I'll be back with my posse.
Thai Thai Dee – Just gets better and better. Ignore the one star rating as for 1) place has been renovated 2) the guy is obviously an idiot. This is amongst the best places in town to eat.
Below average food – Portion size ok but food was bland and unremarkable. One flavor of each dish overpowered all other ingredients; the Pad Thai left a bitter after taste and in my chicken disk even the pineapple tasted like chicken. Service was average. Don't sit in the middle row of tables as flakes from the chipped ceiling and dirt from the filthy AC vents will fall into your food.
Sawadee – A lover of Thai food, my wife and I (especially her since she comes from a Thai family) know good Thai food. We have been to Thai Dee several times and have loved every visit. I personally love the green chicken curry, satay, spring rolls and...who am I kidding, I love everything. My wife usually has the pad thai or lad na and we have no complaints. Dont be fooled by the exterior, this restaurant offers traditional Thai hospitality and fresh food. This is a must visit.
Best Food and Service – I have been to several thai places but nothing compares to the flavor that thai dee offers...it's Delicious!
Whenever i take a new friend there, they also comment that it is the best.
Dee means Good. – Howdy, my wife is from Thailand and this is one of the two places we go to eat Thai food. I like the basil noodles and my wife likes the Pad Thai.
The crispi spring rolls are good appatizers. The recent remodeling really jazzes us the place, so don't be fooled by the location and outside appearance. Inside the service is great and the food is excellent.
