Went on a slow night. Food is tasty, I thought on par with other restaurants serving this type of food but service was horrible! Seemed huge language issue and little experience. But nice location on corner.

City Thai is a great place to drop in for a quick meal. The green curry was flavorful and the table side chillies gave it the right punch. The only gripe was that the shrimp were a bit overcooked. Despite that, I enjoyed my meal...More
