I asked my server for some recommendations. Among others he suggested the salmon. The manner in which he approached the recommendations was in such a detached way that I wondered if I was bothering him. He was looking out the windows, at the ceiling, everywhere but at me. The salmon was done nicely but it isn't what I am thinking... More

This Thai cafe, located in the Laurelhurst University of Washington area, has it all: delicious, fresh food; spotless, attractive decor. My grilled beef salad had an expected ingredient, mint!

Plenty of easy parking help make this a destination of choice. Relatively quiet which I prefer so as to hear my dinner companions. Nice range of dishes, good service in an elegant setting.

We walked from our hotel and found a restaurant full of people enjoying thai food at lunch. They found a spot for us and it was one of the best Thai experiences we have had, even Bangkok. The Avocado Curry was excellent.

I've been to Thailand several times, this restaurant offers the real flavors and a great upscale environment while still affordable. I recommend it.

We decided to take our niec the Marlai Thai Restaurant in Seattle, and it was certainly a good choice. I too - read the reviews by other people who have gone there, and so this place seemed to have some of the highest ratings. The menu was complete in terms of Thai cuisine, and the food was tasty. The portions... More

As for Thai food it was good but nothing to write home about. The female staff were very friendly and helpful, but that could not be said of the one male I saw waiting on tables. Realy, a thai restaurant that runs out of ice tea. I'm ok with eating here the food was good but will look for a... More

The menus were fantastic for those of us who had never had Thai food. Each item was explained very well. This is my dad's favorite restaurant. I had a salmon dish covered in a wonderful mango sauce. It came with salad, beans, and sticky rice. It was wonderful and 'light'. My husband had the Mongolian Beef which was yummy. He... More

I have eaten here many times. the food is okay but nothing special. There is a fairly large menu but the food simply is not sufficiently spicy. I am a 4-star person and they usually deliver 1-2 star dishes and give me chili powder on the side when they ask how is everything? There are much less fancy and more... More
