The Thai House used to get my 5 star rating and was one of our family's favorite places to go. Unfortunately, the new management has let their standards slip. A young kid seems to run things on the floor and he is incompetent. Last time I was there, I made an order but received the wring dish. When I asked for the right dish, a person who could hardly speak English refused. So I asked another waiter and the second time they brought out the wrong dish. So tonight I called up to make sure that I would receive the right dish. The young kid answered and told me that he could not guarantee that I would get what I asked for... This is appalling and I will never go there again, at least until the management changes.
Our Favorite Thai – Thai House has been our favorite Thai restaurant and in our top three or four of any restaurant since its beginnings as Vientiane Gardens. It has gone through several owners and cooks. The first cook was outstanding and she left her legacy for those that followed.
It is small and family run. Take out and delivery can affect quality of service and wait times. Ya want darn fine Thai? You may have to wait a bit from time to time. Ya want fast and efficient? Try (edited 'cause I'm a nice guy) down the street.
In the 50 - 60 times we have eaten there we have had two incorrect orders - ordered "medium" Phad Thai and got "Thai hot" on a recent New Years Eve and something other than what we ordered during its first year.
They do listen and improve. Skimpy veggies? Not any more.
Enjoy, I know we will.
My favorite – Best Thai food in Denver!
I've been to Thailand in several occasions and nothing compares to the food in Thailand, the Thai House comes the closest to authentic Thai food.
I eat there as often as possible.
not a fan – nothing in this place is fresh. almost everything is too sweet and also not enough vegetable. I just don't get it why every single veggie dish has to have bamboo shoots. I had one order of egg rolls, it smells so fishy (is it supposed to be like that??). One of the dishes that we ordered that had chicken in there, chicken smells so bad.
The waiter (fat, asian guy) doesn't know what he's doing? looks like he wants to do 10 things at one time. the result? he forgot everything that I asked for and that happened with the table next to us too.
I'm Thai and I'm not impressed with the food at all. This is gonna be my first and last time eating there. I over heard the manager scream at one of her workers for not working fast enough, there was nobody esle to wait on its not like it was extremly busy and besides i was watching her work her a** off. there was no reason for her to be yelled at
Stunned and appaled – We'd been going here for a while despite the lackluster service. Every single time we ate here something went wrong. One time they didn't bring us rice for the curry, another time or meals arrived at wildly different time, and yet another no one came back after delivering our meals and we had to go find someone to pay our bill. We gave up on eating in and stuck with take-out and delivery. It became a running joke - what did they forget this time? Maybe the wontons were missing. Maybe they messed up our credit card number over the phone, requiring cash when delivery showed up. We kept coming back because we really enjoyed the curry and it was nice and cheap.
I'll never, ever go back there after last night. I called in a take-out order at 5:20. Around 6 my husband went to pick it up and was told they had no record of our order. He exchanged some choice words with the manager and left angry. I called back to try and figure out what had happened. I have the call record on my phone and I didn't understand how they could have no record of me or why they didn't at least offer to make us some food. Apparently they don't want our business anymore. I don't know that I've ever been so unhappy with any establishment as I am with them right now.
One of our all time favorite places! – My husband and I LOVE the Thai House. I think they have the best green and red curry, and for something different...the pumpkin curry. Sometimes the staff is a little iffy, but the owner is very nice and professional.
Inconsistent – The quality of food and service is completely inconsistent. At times we have enjoyed our food very much. Other times we have waited absurd amounts of time for our food. Our most recent experience included an overly sweet curry. I was only able to eat half of it - after a few minutes I felt like I was eating dessert. We gave them many chances, but we are now looking for a better place.
Love their Red Curry – Fast service, in and out in less than 10 minutes. I ordered Red Curry, it was good. they added fried Tofu which ads calories but was good.
The food is awesome- but it is family run.. – This is the best Thai in Denver- their panang curry is to die for. And their peanut sauce is excellent. Moving from CA I was dissapointed in all the generic thai that existed- nothing had flavor. You can choose your spicy level so let them know! Also they use all white meat chicken- no funky pieces to pick through.
If you are looking for generic Thai this is NOT the place for you. The new location has less seats than the old location and service can be excellent or lacking. It is family run, so it isnt run like a chain- be patient and you will be impressed! The awards are there for a reason!
Unimpressed, despite the show of awards on their walls – When I got to the restaurant, I waited to be seated by the one waitress on duty who questioned, "By yourself?" I guess maybe I was a little sensitive, but honestly, I felt judged in a not so good way for attempting to eat alone.
Anyway, I was brought to a dirty booth, and though she thought a minute to seat me at another one, she ended up deciding to just wipe off the table in the corner behind the dirty aquarium. She didn't dry the table, however; so, my dinner napkin was sopping, and I couldn't put the book I had brought on the table for fear the pages face the same fate.
I ordered the red curry with pumpkin thinking that it was a rare find on a menu. It was all right. The dish didn't seem different from other red curry I've had save for one bite of what I could make out to be pumpkin.
The restaurant wasn't super busy, but the waitress was taking time to eat her own meal in between checking on me and the other four tables. I had to get up to ask for a to-go box and the check.
I'd rather eat at Thai Flavor, with it's cheesier decor and friendlier service.
