Great Thai Catering! – We had Thaiger Room cater our party and the food was amazing, they delivered it on time, and everyone loved it. Thai food is rarely expensive, and this is no different - kind of a cool alternative for a business lunch...
Food and service are fab. – If you get takeout here, they always make sure you have water to drink while you wait. The whole staff always seems friendly. The food is delicious and they are always speedy with getting it out to you. The restaurant is clean (which is a big deal for U-District). Love this place!!!
Cheap but be wary of extra charges – The lines at Thaiger Room are no longer existent and their loyal customers have continued to dwindle...and for good reason. Thaiger Room's service leaves everyone feeling like their business is not only unappreciated but also unwanted. Although they have good prices for their portions, their food is either extremely tasty and fresh or stale....almost as if they had re-heated yesterday left over ingredients quickly and covered it with tons of sauce to hide the fact. Also, their service leaves customers feeling as if they are intrusive and bothersome to the waitresses and THEY CHARGE AN AUTOMATIC 18 PERCENT GRATUITY FOR PARTIES OF 6 OR MORE but they don't tell you this. It's as if they were trying to deceive you by placing the price as pre-tax and purposefully assuming that we can not read their chicken scratch. Make sure to look over your bill twice for any extra charges that shouldn't be there or you will end up being cheated also. Overall, good food but extremely inconsistent.
Best Thai on U Way – The food is great and the atmosphere is cozy. Loved the phad thai and spicy eggplant. Try the thai tea or thai coffee.
Highly disappointed – I used to love Thaiger. They had a great food and quality service. They always were busy and in rush hour you would have to wait a little to be seated. But that worth it.
Recently I took my friend who was visiting me from abroad to there. I was unpleasantly astonished with what happened there. First the service was slow. Too slow. We were even thinking about leaving when the food finally appeared. It was ok but too sweet. And Phad Thai had some strange taste. But the worst thing - they try to overcharge us - instead of expected 40-45 the brought $80! Somehow it looked to me it wasn't a mistake but an intentional thing, because when I asked waitress what's up she just pulled another receipt from here pocket with the correct sum. Didn't even apologize. So, what's up with you guys? Did you change your owner and now trying to trick your customers? At least your lost one of them for now.
Cheap, authentic Thai cuisine attracts students galore to this tiny restaurant on the Ave. – In Short
A strong peanut smell fills the air at this dimly lit eatery. With brick walls so rustic that the mortar is chipping and lights dangling from visible wires, the atmosphere is anything but romantic. However, if standard Thai fare like pad thai is the goal, the service is speedy and the result is a satisfying plate of noodles with choices of chicken, shrimp or tofu.
Best phad thai! – This is my all-time favorite Thai restaurant! I love that it's just a little hole-in-the-wall place and you can watch the cooks preparing all of the food with speed and accuracy. The phad thai is my favorite dish, but their soups are hearty and on a cold day, they are perfect! I also really like the atmosphere with the dark furniture, brick walls and dangling lights. The waiters are all polite and attentive and I always leave with leftovers so the portions are a healthy size. Best of all, the price is cheap and affordable.
I miss the Thaiger Room! – I used to go to the Thaiger Room all the time before I graduated. Since then, I moved and haven't food a place that comes close to their great food. I have never had a bad experience with service or food quality...and I used to eat there at least once a week. They had great food and the best phad see yew that I have ever tasted (other thai restaurants that I have been to haven't came close). I also like their thai iced tea, black sticky rice dessert (i miss it!) and their spring rolls. Although it is a hole in the wall and the wait during dinner is long, they had the best Thai food in the U District. I'm definately going to eat there again the next time I'm in Seattle!
Best Spring Rolls, Good cheap food, but inconsistent – I have yet to find a place that has spring rolls as good as this place. They are fried, but are so light and crispy like a pastry. Seriously, I have gone to Cleveland and back without finding a comparable spring roll. Their noodle dishes are typically excellent. The only complaint is that they aren't consistent. One day, my Phad See-Ew is perfectly stir-fried, perfectly sauced with crispy veggies. The next day, the pan wasn't hot enough so it's soupy and the noodles broken up and overcooked/simmered. Then the day after that, there's barely any sauce and it's burnt everywhere. It's battered customer syndrome. When it's good, it's fantastic. After that, I'm chasing the dragon.
