Not the worst Thai, but definitely disappointed – Okay, so upon recommendation of a couple friends, we went here for dinner. It's not the worst Thai food I've had but I've definitely had better. They make their dishes too sweet and when you try to get spicy, it's not spicy. My brother ordered the beef salad with 4 stars and after having that, he ordered the spicy shrimp salad and had it 8 stars. I tried it, and it was MAYBE medium spicy (if that). It's okay Thai food, but we're not going back there again.
Delicious food, service, ambiance – We have walked down to our favorite Thai restaurant at least a dozen times in the last year. Each time, without fail, our food was delicious and the service outstanding. I cannot imagine where "ridiculously inconsistant" was eating or what they were eating, but it certainly could not have been at Lai Thai. We spent a month in Thailand, eating the exact same wonderful food every single day, only to return and walk down to Lai Thai for more of the very same food. I suspect a very jealous rival wrote the bad review.
Disappointing... – We went here because we heard it was the best Thai place on the Eastside. The dishes were small and watered down, service was so-so. We'll continue our quest for a great Thai restaurant.
Average Thai food - although owner is cute;-) – In contrast to the other Thai restaurants on the Eastside this one falls a bit below average. The ambiance is good and the furnishings are great - imported from Thailand. The food quality is average - below average portions mixed with an abundance of vegetables. The one good quality is the owner - she is friendly and quite cute ;-)
One of the Best in Kirkland – I have no idea what "Ridiculously Inconsistent" is talking about. The service has always been prompt and the prices are reasonable. As for the quality of the food, for the past month, it has been great! There are times where the portions are way too much for lunches. Unlike another thai restaurant on Lakeshore, your meals arrive in less than 30 minutes. It's a great place to bring clients to.
Ridiculously Inconsistent – We have ordered food from Lai Thai on several occasions, and it is almost always terrible, to the point where my husband and I throw our meals away after about 10 bites. There has been a couple of times where it was some of the best I've ever eaten, so we continued to give it a chance. The majority of the time, the food has been disappointingly bad to the point of being inedible, and over-priced. We have regretted ordering from there too many times - we will not be ordering from there again.
Lai-Thai is AWESOME!!! – The Spring Rolls are light, refreshingly flavorful as are the other appetizers. The atmosphere authentic, and the service is fantastic. Sweet smiles and gracious hosting, as Phad-thai comes out, and it is exquisite. Heavenly beef, Chicken Satay just marvelously done. A bit of authenticity and fantastic flavors await you only to be pleasantly surprized by the reasonable price. No wonder Lai-Thai is widely viewed as the East Side's best Thai restaurant. You will be delighted.
rude staff and inconsistent food – THe food is incosistant and the service is terrible. The seating is usually pretty prompt but the portions are small and cheap (ie the more expensive ingredients are almost non existant in the meal). If you do encounter problems with the meal it is likely that the problems will not be fixed and if they are you will encounter attitude and snears. If you want good Thai food, and good service go to any of the other thai places in Kirkland.
Best Thai – Wonderful, delicious sauces flavor their dishes - not too sweet as at many others. If you don't see a favorite on the menu, just ask. They are very accomodating. The eggplant was cooked perfectly, and the massaman curry and the phad woon sen (not on menu) was wonderful. The prices are very reasonable. It hasn't been discovered yet, so there is usually plenty of room especially in the winter because of their downtown Kirkland location.
Lai Thai is the best Thai around.
Delicious and fantastic place! – I've eaten at Lai-Thai about once a week since they have opened last summer. In every instance, I've been more than pleased with every dish and personal service. The authentic Thai decor and atmostphere is splendid and the food is excellent. My recommendation...Lai-Thai for great Thai food!
