Worst Thai food everrrrrr – Hmmmm... worst Thai food ever. Brocolli carrots eggplant in Thai dishes is strange. Cold food, bad lighting, no atmosphere, all the staff on their phone screens, mopping the floor with bleach while you are still eating, and still a lot of money. Pretty disgusting, never again and I beg you to give it a miss. We are not Thai greenhorns and this was bad!
Now Serving Sushi – It's fun to bring your own bottle of wine here and munch on the colorful shrimp chips.
The curry dishes, hands down, are the best items on the menu. If you need to order an appetizer, go for the chicken spring rolls.
Last night, we tried their new sushi menu. The menu is huge and in the shape of the fish. The sushi was warm, which some people like. I doubt I will order the sushi again, but only because I love the chicken curry so much.
Check your order fo Take Out – This not Seattle ,... Where Thai food is SUPER !!! The food is fair! I live near by and thought that it's gonna be great that a Thai rest in the hood! Three times I ordered take-away and it was wrong and they never said a thing when I confronted the girl who gave me my order, but Oh I'm sorry!
The help is Asian and speak or to be more specific understand little English. The Hispanic busboy is the one to give your order too! He speaks and understands English!
Getting back to the food it's dry for Thai food and on the odd side,..... back to Pei Wei for me!!
YUMMM! To the green or red curry! – I loveeee the green and red curry here! VERY SPICY! I don't like anything else on the menu though. Not a fan of peanut sauces and the sweet Thai foods. That's just my personal opinion, but for those who like sweet, maybe it's done well.
Fresh ingredients, impeccable preparation – I had the crispy snapper and was so pleasantly surprised at the impeccable preparation. Just the right amount of crisp around a juicy and flavorful fish. Gorgeous, fresh veggies sauteed on top, perfectly-cooked brown rice -- and the pre-meal table treat, shrimp chips, were very tasty, as well. I will definitely keep coming back! I actually live closer to the one in University Village, so I'll try it, as well.
The food was good, but the service was not that great. I had to wait 30 mins for food.
So So – They can make some good food here but have a hard time believing me when I ask for a "extremely spicy" dish. I always have to pour on the Sirracha sauce to get it to where I like it. Service is good. The Singapore Noodles have come out great on some occasions yet burned and tasteless on other occassions.
Go here if you want Thai that tastes chinese! – The best thing I can say is that this restaurant is about the best chinese restaurant in the heights! but oh wait, its Thai! The food is heavy, laden with soy sauce and almost none of it tastes fresh or fragrant like thai food should. The pad thai was awful, no flavor, and pad thai is the simpliest thai dish. I mean the food doesnt taste bad, it just doesnt taste like the delicious Thai food I am use to.
Best Thai food thus far – I'm Asian and I'm very picky about my food. I have tried other Thai Spices around town and this one is the best. They've been consistently good. Try their steamed fish with garlic and chili sauce, or beef with green beans and pepper. Also got my husband's approval was their curry noodle soup and pineapple fried rice. Have not tried the pad thai so I can't comment on previous posting.
Worst Thai Food in Town – Save yourself and your taste buds. This was the absolute worst Thai food I have ever eaten. We had food delivered and after one bite, we threw this food out, drove halfway across town to Esarn Thai and ate there. The tum yum soup was more like roasted pepper soup and tasted neither like lemongrass or tomato. The pad thai was sickly sweet and not at all spicy like we requested. While this place has a great location, that's all they have going for them.
