Disappointed in the food quality – We went there this evening and were expected excellent food; however, were only please with the atmosphere and service.
FOOD: 2 stars.
Seafood explosion soup lacked explosion. 3 stars. The broth was flavorful but not extraordinary. We were expecting a bounty of seafood but only had a few shrimps and scallops and no squid as suggested by the menu. This was the best part of the meal.
Massaman curry-3 stars. Was on the sweeter side but after half the dish, the sweetness became overpowering and uncomfortable for a main dish (and I even generally prefer sweeter dishes).
Chicken basil and beef garlic had decent sauces, but similar to the thai fried rice, we think the chef forgot to season the meats and just added them to the dishes. The thai rice was flavored nicely with soy sauce and lime juice-nothing to write home about though.
SERVICE: 4 stars. Very attentive and amenable. Still friendly to our kiddos even though when were is a "pretty" restaurant, we worry about the little rascals damaging something.
ATMOSPHERE: 4 stars. Clean and "well dressed".
OVERALL: Since we value taste the most, average is the best we could give it. Not sure how this achieved 4.5 star rating since we had better in Lubbock, TX where bean sprouts are only available in one supermarket (out of ~8 in the city-there's some perspective for you).
Best Piza in resturantcom – hi every there by we can guide all the resturant fevouite dishes detail in the resturantdotcom site so please kindly visist that site as early as possible
MY FAVORITE THAI RESTAURANT IN HOUSTON!!! – Ive been to other Thai rest. in Houston over the past 20 years and I've been to Thai Sticks about
a half dozen times now. The last time my best friend and I went was just like every other time but the weather was great and so we sat out on their patio deck. We had a bottle of menage a trios, soft spring rolls and the pork skewers to start and Jen had Green beans on Fire and I had the BEST red curry in Houston. I'm not really into the Indian curries but I love Thai curry. Especially red. The prices we not to bad considering it was more of a white table cloth atmosphere. No bendable forks and plastic cups like another I've been to near the Galleria. On a scale of 1 to 10 I give this place a very fair 8 and a half. Pros- Service, taste, cozy, and selection. Cons - It's kind of far from my loft I wish it were closer.
Nice atmosphere, good service – We had GREAT service-tipped 20%! A bit pricey considering there are so many Thai restaurants out there but guess you're paying for the location! Had the panaeng curry, fried tofu app., seafood medley, and eggplant dish. Also dessert of fried plantain and icecream. 3 glasses of wine-bill was about $90 plus tip. A bit pricey for Houston I thought. It was good but not outstanding.
Best panaeng curry anywhere! – I lived in Thailand for many years. After moving to Houston, my husband and I went searching for a really great, authentic Thai restaurant. When we visited Thai Sticks, I knew we had found the place! So far, we have tried several dishes. The panaeng curry is the best I've EVER had, the fish cakes and sai grok (northeastern-style sausage) were incredible, each of the Thai-style salads I've had there have been prepared just-right (with ingredients including fresh mint and other herbs), the tom kha was seasoned to perfection. . .the list goes on and on! They also serve what has come to be my favorite all-time martini-type drink, a sweet-and-spicy concoction complete with a hot pepper floating on top. You have to try it to believe it, because it is delicious beyond description! Service was prompt, friendly--we arrived around 6:30 tonight, and there was no waiting. Everything was AROY JANG LEUY! We are sure to go back again and again, and recommend it to anyone who wants outstanding Thai food in a lovely atmosphere with even lovelier people!
Great Customer Service and Fantastic Food – Friend of mine came from Thailand and we searched for the place we can have eatable 'Thai' food and wine. We ended up at Thai Stick on Friday night. We sat at the Patio where we could enjoy the nice wheather of Houston in late October. Thai Stick can answer all of our needs, foods are great and also the restuarant itself is beautiful. Additionaly, Friday night was busy but the waitresses were very helpful. The waitress who took care of our table is new but has a strong service mind. We got what we asked for.
Most of the time, Thai people don't want to go to Thai restaurant outside Thailand. But for Thai Stick, my friend said "just like home".
Fraud on their drinks, watch out what you pay for it – My friend and I have been to Thai Stick four times over the last three weeks. Tonight we went again for dinner and ordered the ?Thai Tiger? drink; which we both like. As I went to the car to get my cell phone, I passed the bar and noticed they made our drink with McCormick vodka rather than Gray Goose as stated on the menu. Needless to say, I was upset. The Thai Tiger costs 9 dollars a drink, and the establishment was making them with McCormick! I spoke to the manager and she said that they poured Gray Goose in the McCormick bottle because it was easier to pour the spices in the McCormick bottle. I have never heard such a ridiculous statement in all my life. Needless to say, I will not be going back to that restaurant as they have lost my trust.
Excellent service and great food that won't tear a hole in your wallet! – I love this place! I have been there several times, both for lunch and dinner. The service is excellent and the food is divine!!! Loving it!
Avoid Lunch time..... – I liked the atmosphere on my first visit three weeks ago, and though I would give it another try. I and a business colleague decided to go again, although the food was tasty, the presentation was excellent, but the service was horrible. First in the restaurant, and last to get served lunch, (the waitress forgot)....
It will be awhile before I try again.
Not Your Average Thai Food – I?ve been 4 times ? lunch and dinner - and I think this place is very good.
The Kitchen has a lot more creativity and skill than any other Thai place I?ve been. Some fairly unique offerings ? more French influence. The Duck here is very, very good as is the Red Snapper.
The service is good too. I did get one waiter that was socially challenged - but the others more than compensated. One of the waiters, I think he said his name was Chris, acts like he owns the place (maybe he does - I don't know).
