Double charged – Be careful food is good but is it at the chance of being charged twice. Happened to me!
Always great food, always great service – Thai Bistro has turned into our go to place for Thai food. The food is always so well prepared and the staff is very friendly.
They have an upstairs room/area if you ever need to have a really private dining occasion.
Get the Thai tea…it is perfectly made.
THE BEST! – This food is amazing. If you haven't been here you are truly missing out on a part of life.
Try the panang curry, crispy veggie rolls, shrimp & asparagus, cashew chicken, crispy duck, tom yum soup... wow not sure I can stop!
They will make any food as mild or spicy as you like.. and WOW they can put it to ya! I once ordered the chicken with green beans (or spicy green beans, I don't remember exact name) and I was crying in the restaurant (literally!) in ultimate heat and pleasure! They were SO spicy, yet still fantastic.
The shrimp & asparagus dish is simple in a light brown sauce, but I tell you, you will never have asparagus as perfectly cooked as this!
The panang curry is rich and buttery with perfect spices. It is very generous with sauce and chicken and has great veggies mixed in.
The cashew chicken is not like another asian restaurant. No cubes of chicken and carrots here. The best cashew chicken I have ever had!
Ok enough raving from me.. you have to try the dishes for yourself!
I order the panang curry literally everytime I go, along with 1 or 2 other dishes for my husband and I to share.
They're open late, prices are pretty good and the food never fails to please! The restaurant is beautiful and the staff is super sweet.
RUN TO THAI BISTRO!!!
Thai food that's not overly spicy – I had Tom Kha soup and Pad Thai chicken. Both were served as requested -- not too spicy. The service was good; soothing. Although the menu is not expansive, there are certainly enough choices to meet most people's taste. The staff could brush up on their English a bit, though.
Very good Thai food, pleasant service. – I often go here for lunch. They have a very good selection of Thai dishes. Personally, they have the best spring rolls I've ever had. The price is a bit more than most lunch places, but nothing out of sight. When the weather is appropriate you can sit outside if you don't mind looking at the parking lot (often the case in Houston). I've always had pleasant service here.
Used to go here all the time... – I used to go here a lot and thought the food was great. The past couple of times, it's just been OK. Edible but not enjoyable, I think. After my last visit, I'll be taking a break or won't go back, b/c I think the food has gone downhill. As for the last time I was there, the steamed dumplings were broken and filled with water. They were mush and it was gross. We sent them back, told the waiter why, and the restaurant did nothing. While the waiter was a very nice person, I think the restaurant should have resteamed some new dumplings or took them off our bill. We didn't make a huge deal over it. Just didn't want to eat water filled, mushy dumplings. Entrees came out just ok. Barely seasoned. Another time I ordered a curry, that was supposed to have potatoes and carrots (whole reason I ordered that particular curry) and there were none in the dish. Not one. I told the waitress and I got a side of steamed potatoes and curry. OK but still. They need to get the kitchen together a little bit. I would say the food these days is average, at best. Even a little below.
Great Food, Dine In or Take Out – Great spot. I frequent this place at least once a week. My favorite dishes are Chicken Pad Thai, the Tom Kha Soup, Curry Panang,
Average thai food – If you are looking for very average thai food, this place will be perfect for you. The salad served with the lunch specials are mediocre at best. Potstickers and spring rolls are pretty standard as well. I opted for the basil chicken and jasmine rice because the waitress told me that it was their "best" chicken dish. Again, very average. I think that if you are in a rush, this place will do, but otherwise, just go to Nit Noi, you will probably be more satisfied there.
Wonderful Food and Service – I try to go there at least once a month. The curries are superb, especially the pineapple curry! The servers are very attentive, and remember us every time. Great atmosphere, incredible food, and friendly service make this my favorite Houston Resturant!
BEST place for lunch in greenway plaza area – I can't believe more people haven't discovered this place for lunch. The food is excellent, I've had everything on the menu at least once and never been disappointed. I highly recommend the salmon, it's cooked to perfection, moist and flavorable (and spicy once they know your tastes) or the snapper (cooked in a sweet sauce and crispy). Everything tastes fresh, and the service is impeccable. The staff is first rate bar none. One of these days I'll make the trek there for dinner.
