authenic Thai food – I always love the people who bad mouth Thai food they probably like the clicky Thai restaurants in Houston that serve Chinese food they pass off as Thai.
I have been to Thailand 12-14 times and The Thai Restaurant Does a good job. Never had a problem with the service. If I want Thai food it is the first place I would think of.
Sorry to the other folks just go and enjoy your chinese food and tell yourself you ate Thai. Your loss.
Delicious every time! – I have been going to Thai Restaurant for over three years now and have not been dissapointed a single time. The food is always top-notch, and so is the service.
The best part: I have never had to wait long to be seated, the host and the waiters are always very accommodating, and the atmosphere is nice, romantic, and quiet. I have NEVER had anyone at this place treat me remotely close to what the other reviewers are describing. Never seen an error on the check, never received the check before we finished eating, certainly never had anyone throw the check down at the table.
Food-wise: flambet-style chicken breast, chicken massaman, any of the curries, and tom ka gai soup are to die for! And as far as spicy food goes - you can tell them to turn the heat up or down depending on your taste, for any dish. Also, coconut juice for a drink is a big favorite.
that girl this super ones badly – it will never return to that placethe girl is super bad with all the clients takes ticket to you before you finish the appetizer
lazy service – food is good but the service is realy badI'm reeling from a terrible meal I just ate Hands down the worst Thai food I have ever had, and poor service to boot. Where do we start. My wife
Experience the powerful, fragrant signs of traditional Thai: kafir, coconut milk, fresh basil and heated chilies. – The Scene
The initial impression at the conveniently named Thai Restaurant is of the gentle, accommodating staff--they sure want you to be there. No wonder Thai families, budget lunchers and high-spirited eaters keep the business brisk. The precarious Westheimer Road shopping-strip image goes soft inside with natural bamboo screens, pretty green lotus-leaf plates and other soothing Thai touches.
Classic pad thai is triumphant, sans sweetness: Silky rice noodles and succulent snow peas are dusted with crushed peanuts and spiked with coconut and lime overtones. Gorgeously garnished, crispy jumbo shrimp is equally invigorating with rich, spicy crustaceans, al dente green beans, and exotic kafir leaves. Actually, pick any shrimp dish (out of 10), and you'll probably be happy with your choice. Or sample gently fried soft-shell crab, astonishingly fresh with Thai chili sauce and you're good to go.
Decent Food, but where's the Hospitality? – I work in the vicinity of this restaurant and was referred to eat there by co-workers. I went twice. First time, out of 4 people, NO ONE liked their dish. But being a nice person, giving the restaurant the benefit of the doubt, I went back with a date. The waitress slapped a bill on us 5 minutes into us being seated; and she TOOK our food from us WAY before we were done eating. When I told her she had done that, it didn't seem to matter much to her. Hmmm... I would definitely think thrice before going back there a third time.
Yummy! – This is one of my favorite restaurants, and I eat here frequently. It is nice and quiet, so great for a date, and the decor is soothing, elegant, and tasteful. My favorite dishes are the Chicken with Straw Mushrooms and Beef Massaman Curry. Don't bother saving room for dessert, however, their selection leaves a lot to be desired but that's fine with me cuz I always fill up on the excellent main course anyway! And you can't beat the prices.
There are better Thai choices in town. – When my fiance called our order to go, the Asian lady taking his order was apparently unfamiliar with decent American social graces -- she hung up on him without confirming the order, telling him the price, or even saying goodbye! He had to call her back.
The real disappointment was my Shrimp with Basil and Onions, which was marked with three asteriks *** on the menu, which signals a hot & spicy dish, but it tasted so mild that I had to add my own chili flakes. Also, the portions were VERY SKIMPY! The Tom Yum soup I ordered for $3.95 actually was a rip off because it was about a half a cup of salty and sugary water with only 3 small pieces of shrimp.
We'll never eat food from Thai Restaurant again, when Houston has such a wonderful variety of authentic Asian fare!
Best Thai in Town – I had the opportunity to have lunch here and between the food and service everything was wonderful. Everytime I took a sip from my tea, there was someone there filling it back up. I had the first entree on the lunch menu, chicken with just the perfect amount of spice. It was perfect. The value for the food is just right. This place is a 10+
L-4 is the best lunch dish – I had never eaten Thai before a year ago when co-workers turned me on to Thai Restaurant. Now we meet there at least once a week. The best lunch special is L-4. Nice and spicy!!! Their service is excellent. Thai Restaurant is a must!!!
