Their food is delicious, flavorful, and just the right amount of spice. I've never had a bad item to eat. The service is dumb. They are unable to serve people in the "restaurant." They would be better off only offering take out or delivery.

After reading all the great reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to try the restaurant last night. We will never know if the food is good or not. After our party of 5 sat down we were advised they had too many carry out orders so they could not serve us in the restaurant. Why they have a restaurant I... More

The food is outstanding. The seating is limited. 2 tables and some chairs at the bar...maybe 4-6 seats. The food may take awhile but the appetizers were served in a reasonable amount of time which gave us time to enjoy them before the main dishes arrived. This is our go to place when we don't want to take a chance... More

We lived in Thailand for almost a year and when we returned we craved the authentic flavors in Thai food. We regularly order from Jow Nai. It is one of our favorite restaurants !! The food is always fresh, hot and never a disappoints !!

Stopped by for the first time last night and ordered the green curry with tofu. I often saw the restaurant as I ran through the neighborhood and decided to give it a chance. My dish was full of flavor, fresh, and cooked to absolute perfection. Great portions, very friendly staff, and a great cozy atmosphere. I will definitely be back,... More

This place is by far, the best Thai food in Milwaukee. I usually get the massamam curry with vegan meat, not too spicy. It is delicious and creamy made with coconut milk. Thai iced tea is a good drink to wash the spices down. The inside is very well lit, romantic, with light paintings all over the wall by local... More

This small and hip Thai eatery never disappoints me. My girlfriend and I make it a point to order Tom Ka (soup) at every Thai restaurant we visit. We compare every one against Jow Nai's, and Jow Nai always wins. So richly flavorful. Everything here has an extra dimension of flavor. I just wish the restaurant was open for lunch.

A cup of soup is $4.95 and a bowl is $11.95. The bowl is smaller than the typical size of a pho bowl. Give me a break. Will never return. Don't waste your money.

I had read about Jow Nai Fouquet online and reviewers raved about their king of vegetarian - it's a curry dish made with coconut milk, tofu, and veggies. Now, I understand why. They make the dish to perfection and to exactly the spice level you want (be careful with the hottest level, it delivers). They are happy to convert any... More
