GREAT FOOD, just gotta know how to get there – This is authentic and GREAT food! I'm from Thailand, so I would know. Staff James and Yui are super friendly. They even have free delivery to limited area. GO NOW!!!! Hard to find location, due to signs being blocked by trees. Just look for Wendy's on the North side, and that's where you turn into the really empty shopping center. It's there, and it's worth it to go.
Hidden Thai GEM! – I've lived in the Denver metro area for about 25 years now and sampled the cuisine of a majority of the Thai, Japanese and Asian restaurants Denver has to offer. This restaurant was recommended by one of my high school student's friends, so I was skeptical to say the least.
What a pleasant surprise! If you're looking for "the real deal" in Thai cuisine, this is definitely the place. All of the curry dishes (the Masaman curry is my favorite) are amazing and can be customized to your liking. I always judge a Thai restaurant by their fried rice; Star Thai has the BEST fried rice with some nice variations on the theme.
Don't expect white table clothes and candles, however, you can expect friendly service, incredible tasting food and a humble attitude from the owner.
GREAT Thai Food!!!!!!! – Do yourself a favor, go see James at Star Thai. The owners are the chefs, the food is authentic and the price is right. I've eaten at Tommy's, Wild Ginger, Thai Basil, etc. and enjoy them all, but I'm telling you, check out Star Thai, you won't be disappointed!! It's not a fancy place, but they make up for that with the tasty dishes.
Outstanding In Every Way! – Star Thai Restaurant is one of those rare places which excel at everything they do, not just how good their food is, which is oustanding!
Star Thai prepares primarily traditional Thai dishes, but also make several Chinese and Japanese Sushi dishes. Unlike many other Thai restaurants which mess around with the dishes to make them more "gourmet", Star Thai prepares their dishes in the traditional manner of Thailand. They are prepared just as you would have them if you were to sit down in the home of a family in Thailand for dinner. Star Thai is owned and operated entirely by the members of one Thai family who take great pride in their restaurant. They use only fresh ingredients, which is translated to great flavor and freshness in their dishes. All of their Thai sauces are homemade and they are wonderful! Spiciness is to your taste and order and they are very good at keeping the spice to the level which you request. If you want mild, you will get it mild. If you request it hot, you will get it HOT! I have had most of the main courses on their menu and I have thoroughly enjoyed every one of them. I have taken several friends and family members to Star Thai and they all have produced "yummy' sounds during their meal and had smiles on their faces at the end of their meals.
Customer Service is also outstanding! They are prompt to seat you and get you your menus. They are prompt in preparing and serving your meals to you and they are respectfully attentive to you during your meal. They always have a genuine smile one their faces indicating they are truly happy you came to their restaurant.
Prices are very reasonable, even for the Dinner prices which average about the $7 range for most dishes. Even their appetizers are more reasonably priced than most other places.
The Star Thai Restaurant is very cozy and is a bit hard to see from the road, but it is well worth the risk of a visit for lunch or dinner! Once you try it, you will come back! IT'S THAT GOOD!
I Agree - Best Thai in Lakewood – I agree with Jim01's listing - yeah for the flexible menu, great food, incredibly nice owners and fair prices. Don't let the strip-mall location deter you - Sure the decor inside isn't spectacular but in suburban Lakewood, it's easy to pick up and take home or have delivered. After work, I often pick up dinner here and bring home to central Denver as we haven't found anything this good around us!
Best Thai Food in Lakewood – As my wife is Thai, we have been searching for a decent Thai restaurant in Lakewood and finally found it in Star Thai. It's not the fanciest place in town but the couple who run it make up for the decor with their friendly attitudes and excellent food. My wife can order dishes which are not on the menu and most items can be made in a traditional Thai way or modified for Western tastes. They make the best and most authentic Pad Thai that I have had outside of Thailand. Prices are surprisingly low and one does not get hit with extra charges for minor modifications to dishes unlike other restaurants at this end of town.
