We've had lunch there twice, the first time was why we went back a second time, and there will be more. It's in a strip mall but the ambience makes you forget where it is located. My wife loves Thai and I, well, not so much. But that doesn't keep me from finding a variety of non Thai options on... More

Even though they have a pub food menu, treat yourself and choose from the Thai food menu. We've been there so many times it's hard to recall every Thai dish we've had, but they have all been delicious, and presented beautifully. The staff there are always professional and work hard to ensure you're well cared for whether seated at a... More

We ate only the Thai food. This restaurant was an extremely pleasant surprise. We thought this was primarily a bar -- not so. We found the restaurant completely full with couples and groups enjoying their meals. We also thought Thai food would be too hot -- wrong again. It was very tasty, much like our favorite food, which is Chinese.... More

This is my brother in law's favorite place but our first time here. There are TV's all around the place so I assume it would be a great place to watch sports. It is unusual that a sports bar has Thai food but I believe they are known for that. We had the usual bar & grill type food which... More

I've been here a number of times and it has become a favorite spot for Thai. The food is fresh, the staff is lovely, and the service is good. I highly recommend the Thai Garden, the green curry and the steamed mussels. If you ask do spicy, they will do you right!! Whew..love it! Lots of menu items - something... More

It is a. Bar and Grill but also had a good selection of Thai food. I had drunken noodles that were excellent. Eric, our waiter was very attentive and entertaining. I would definitely recommend Trying The Sand Trap.
