These guys are great – Take out staple. it takes about 10-15 minutes to get take out from start to finish. I think it must be family owned because the same lady is at the counter all the time. really nice and polite. They see me coming and remember my order each time. Try them- you won't be disappointed.
Great food. Make sure you watch what your being charged for – Thai Bistro has some very interesting & yummy shrimp dishes. When my in laws were visiting from out of town they loved the food so much that we had dined in 3 days in a row and then the next week 3 more days. My father in law always insisting to pay. Finally on the 6th visit my husband and I had had it and took the bill before he had the chance. What we noticed on our bill really shocked us. On our bill there was a $7 service charge added to our ticket for a table of 5. No where on the menu or in the establishment was there any postings on such a service charge to be added for a party of 5. But there it was on our bill. All along in our past 5 visits we were leaving our tip in cash since my father in law was insisting on paying for dinner. But we were never alerted to the service charge until we noticed it ourselves. Once we spoke with the owner, who assured us that this was not usually done the charge was taken off but we cant be sure if we were being charged all along (since we always came with a party of 5). So take a close look at your ticket when dining at this location.
Fast service, great lunch specials – Never had a bad experience here. I go for lunch maybe 2-3 times a year, and it's always wonderful. Only negative comment (and what kept me from giving 5*) is that while you can order your food to be however spicy you want, only some of it is actually made spicy.
For example, one day I ordered one of the lunch specials (a curry), which I ordered 3*. It was very mild, and I couldn't figure out why I wasn't getting any of the spicy kick. I was about to send it back when I had a bite of phad Thai. Oh... there it was. So I had spicy phad Thai with a bland (though still delicious) main course. I ended up piling everything (including the delicious jasmine rice) together and making a sort of curry gumbo, which worked out all right.
Best Thai Food around – My husband and I have made Thai Bistro in Mill Creek our favorite place to go. Not only is the food consistently great, but the service is ALWAYS excellent. My other favorite thing about this place are the floral arrangements. They ALWAYS have fresh flowers at each table and in the bathrooms. What a lovely touch. We dine here at least once a week for lunch or dinner, and the fact that we ALWAYS get consistant quality brings us back each time. THANK-YOU Thai Bistro for always utting your best foot forward. It shows.
ps we dined at a Thai Bistro in Federal Way and were surprised. Beware, not all Thai Bistros are the same.
Best Pad Thai anywhere!! Uber Professional Staff – First off, don't know why Thai Bistro is listed under French cuisine?? It is a Thai restaurant for cryin out loud! The Pad Thai is the best I have ever had and I have eaten Thai in most every city I have traveled to. It is not greasy (this is traditional Pad Thai, not Americanized!) and I don't know where the previous reviewer ate but the portions are huge. Personally, I think the other reviewer ate somewhere else and has his/her places mixed up!
The staff are the best I have ever encountered. I walked in to do take out. They sat me at the bar and brought ice water to my wife and me. The head waitress/hostess (I personally think she is in charge of the staff) explained to us how they used a four star system for heat instead of the more common 5 or 10 (west coast). She also advisedon portions, she could have easily over sold us but did not. In my book this is the best Thai place I have ever been. The restaurant is beautiful and actually has hand carved wood beams and is very tastefully decorated in a blend of modern and traditional Thai. This is Thai food cooked by Thai people! You will not be disappointed.
If you weigh more than 50 pounds you'll leave hungry – I don't know why the owner decided to cut dinner portions by 50% after they opened but you'll need to order two dinners per person if you want to be satisfied. Food is well prepared but their service, while pleasant is often understaffed. In my opinion, the owner is skimping on the customers.
