I ordered dumplings, green papaya salad, and Tom Khan soup. The meal was flavor filled, with savory sauces and fresh ingredients. Yummy Thai dinner menu and attentive service.

Great experience. Clean, nice quiet relaxed ambiance. Efficient & friendly service. We had fried Tofu and chicken sate for appetizers and then a curry dish and spicy Thai basil. Everything was fantastic! When we are in the area, we will return for sure!

This place doesn't get a lot of business, i don't know why because the food is excellent, service is great and it's not too expensive, we eat here all the time. One of the best Thai places in town.

This is a great place to get Thai if you're vegan as they do not use fish sauce in their curry dishes. Their other dishes are delicious too! The staff has always been great and the restaurant is clean.

Not sure why so many people give this place a bad wrap but I come again and again because it is as close to authentic as it gets here! It's great! I always get Tom Yum chicken soup, spring rolls, and I love the garlic chicken! My husband love the yellow curry. Maybe if people weren't used to supersizing everything... More

We have been to Tom Yum Thai on a number of occasions and the food is always fresh, well prepared, well presented, a just plain good. If you like spicy dishes they will adjust the seasoning to your taste. They have medium spicy, hot spicy, and Thai Hot Spicy. The Thai Hot Spicy is not for the weak of heart.... More

I guess I will echo others. I had Pad Woon Sen (bean thread noodles) for lunch and while the serving size was not large, the price was very reasonable. They did screw up and brought me chicken when I ordered tofu, but quickly fixed it. It wasn't very authentic, but the floor staff does speak Thai, so I don't know... More

nice place, expensive food, small portions. that pretty much summarizes it. we ordered pineapple fried rice, green curry, spring rolls and were served a free dessert which was nice. the raisins in the fried rice were burnt and that sort of destroyed the flavor of the rice. otherwise it would have been really good. the green curry was very good.

I live locally and can tell you this place gives Thai food a bad rap. Slow service, the floors and tables were sticky, food was dry, not very tasty and I went through an entire meal with no drink refill. If you desire Thai, then please skip this place and enjoy a superb Thai restaurant just 4 minutes away. Just... More
