Had the curry shrimp special and shrimp was soggy and not very fresh tasting. Tasted thawed from the freezer. Good service.

Our past experiences at Kao Thai had been uniformly terrific, so we got a bit more adventurous in our orders for a delivered dinner. The results were still quite good, but not as spectacular as past meals. I got a Thom Kai soup (chicken with...More

One of 2 Thai places in Silver Spring that I love. The parking is slightly easier at the other one, but not difficult here. My favorite thing about this one is the mango curries, which I've never seen anywhere else.

We enjoyed our takeout lunch from Kao Thai. We have lived in Asia for many years and the food was very authentic. Our nephew loved the mango chicken curry, the PHad Thai, Phad See-uw and drunken noodles were all fantastic and the spring rolls and...More

This has become our favorite Thai restaurant in the DC area. We've never been to Thailand but the flavors are much brighter and more robust than other Thai restaurants. For appetizers, the papaya salad is my favorite, hands-down. It has a nice spicy kick to...More

Stopped in for dinner on a business trip. Nice clean and inviting decor. Attentive wait staff. Very reasonable prices. Had the Pad See Ew at number three hot. I should have gone for four but it was great nonetheless. Perfect size portion, lots of fresh...More
