Thai Junk Food – We gave this place a couple tries since it is close to home, and unfortunately, we were thouroughly unimpressed both times. It tastes like Thai junk food. There are other much better Thai restaurants in Seattle. I don't think we'll give this one a third try.
GREAT Thai! – This Thai restaurant gives large portions for a little price. You never have to wait long for your food either. Fresh seafood, excellent peanut sauce too! I honestly cant think of a bad thing about this place. Each time I'm over at W Seattle, I HAVE to make a trip there.
Reliable Thai – When you want a quick and tasty meal with good service for a reasonable price this works well. Something about the atmosphere is a little cold... or franchisey feeling.
Going Downhill fast – Been visiting this restaurant for a few years now. It started off with a bang serving excellent Thai (comparable to TupTim Thai in Queen Anne). However, over time the quality of the food and service has slipped dramatically. The restaurant management has a take it or leave it attitude, quite rude and obnoxious. I had my last dinner there recently.
Highly recommend you dine elsewhere.
great services – I've been eating at Pailin Thai for the last 7 years. their food and services just get better each day. every time i go there and noticed they have a ton of order to-go and still get served quickly. I asked the young waiter to see if this is unusal and he said "this kind of volume is ordered every day" i said to myself when i read posts on here those who bashed the place for being slow. they are a bunch of morons. What do you expect when you have a lot of people ordered before you? so, be nice and tips them instead.
by the way, the food and staffs is great in my opinion. try it yourself and see.
YUM YUM! – I tried Pailin for the first time last night and I am hooked. Great staff, great food, friendly atmosphere.
Best Pad Thai I've had – In recent weeks, I've seen Thai food vendors at certain public events, and I have to say, the pad thai they've been serving is no better than the make at home kind from the grocery store. Pailin serves by far, the best pad thai i've ever tasted. I really enjoy the spicy/sweet flavor of this dish, and always order it with chicken. And I have yet to find anything wrong with the staff there as well.
Very Good Thai – Good food, nice atmosphere and good service. Parking can be tough.
