This is a small local Thai Take out place. The food is authentic and delicious. Check out the menu online and order. It is usually ready in 20 min. I live a few blocks away and order here often. I love the green curry. Ask for extra spicy if you like it hot.

My girlfriend and I were driving from Boston to VA, and after a lot of junk food and typical fast food, we were craving something a little healthier. I found Kow Thai and took a look at their menu, which fit the bill. Placed an order online. As we were driving, they called us to double-check some specifics about the... More

Only been at the place once but the pad Thai is one of the best ones I've had. The owner Dean was very nice too. I will order again once I'm in the mood for Thai food.

Love Kow Thai, just beautiful curries and stir frys. It's fresh, homemade, yummy, real Thai food. A wonderful bonus is they offer seitan, soy duck or tofu for vegetarians. The spicy Thai basil stir fry and Pa-nang curry are favourites and my child is addicted to the Tom Kha Gai soup. Only negative is location - not in a great... More

We were visiting friends that live in Easton for the weekend. They raved about this take out Thai in Allentown. So off we went. They eat there so often they have become good friends with Pater the owner. Because they live 25 minutes away getting take out isn't an option. Peter has a few wooden TV trays he unfolded and...

I've traveled in Thailand, lived in big cities with real thai restaurants, so I know good thai from bad thai food. This is very very good. The yellow curry is my favorite, but we also love the spring rolls. The curry is rich and complex, as Thai curry should be. The only thai food better in the area is at... More
