We got a chance to have lunch in Thai One On. Small restaurant but tried to maintain Eco friendly atmosphere which was a good experience. Staff were decent in serving food.

Very tasteful food, well prepared. Great lunch value, have eaten here twice this week. Soup, salad and spring roll along with an entree for $9.50 is great. Spicy noodle lunch dish was great with pork.

Had dinner last night here and it was so incredible!! To begin, we ordered Thai iced tea and the Hot Pot Wonton soup. The best soup I've ever had! Then, I had the seafood with yellow curry, heat level 5 and hubby had beef curry, level 5. The meal was served with a large pot of white rice. Seriously so... More

08/20 2016 1:30 p.m. Although I really enjoy the food at thai one on, the spatial awareness of the maitre d' left a lot to be desired. When I asked for a table for two ,my wife and I were given the choice of sitting next to the kitchen door less than 18 inches from a very noisy 6 top.... More

During our last US trip we were invited to have dinner at Thai One. It was a fantastic experience. The people serving were friendly and nice and the food was actually very well prepared and very tasteful. Absolutely recommendable.

Friends recommended this restaurant to us for great Thai food in the area. We enjoyed our dinner very much. The only disappointment were the vegetable spring rolls for an appetizer. They were fresh, crispy, and hot, and there were plenty to share for 2 people, but they just weren't anything great - kind of bland and mainly just stuffed with... More

I debated sharing this one - its that good (and I want to be sure I can dine there!). It's very busy most evenings and Sunday lunch, so I would advise booking a table. There is always a line for take outs so phone well in advance. That said it is well worth the wait. It never disappoints, the food... More

We went to Thai One On on Valentine's Day around 6pm. We got in just before the rush. The place is in a local shopping center. They have a bar and great Thai decor. My husband and I decided to share a couple plates. We got the Hot and Sour Soup in a hot pot. The hot pot was a... More

As Thai restaurants go, this one is pretty good. Pleasant, well kept, spacious ambiance, clean overall. Food fairly priced, generous portions, absolutely tasty and well prepared. Great place for their lunch special 11:30-2:30, @ about $10. The wait staff is slightly condescending, but sufficiently attentive. There are two issues that need to be addressed. One is that they need to... More
