We have been going to Thai Kitchen for over a decade. It never disappoints. I started taking my daughter there when she was a freshman in high school and now she is getting her PhD. Whenever she is in town we make a point of eating at Thai Kitchen for authentic comfort Thai food. My daughter is a vegan now... More

we ordered almost everything from the menu for a big party (12+) and the food was great and could be ordered spice scaled down. friend rice was my favorite and the dessert coconut ice cream was great, not too coconut-overwhelming and not too sweet. make sure to try this ice cream.

This restaurant is located in a strip mall in the middle of town. It's not like you would travel miles to get to this place but it's a good option if you're in the area. I got the Pad Thai to go for lunch. The register/counter is immediately at the door when you enter so it's easy to grab a... More

As in the past we were greeted very warmly and shown to our reserved table. We ordered collectively according to our personal choices for a variety of dishes.... More

My friend and I stumbled upon this restaurant and were pleasantly surprised with the food. I ordered the pad see ew lunch special and my friend ordered the Ruby Chicken lunch special. Both were made with fresh veggies and both had great taste. We'll be back to try other items on the menu!

This is a small restaurant serves nice Thai food (not so spicy) which makes it ideal for a family dining. Try steamed fish with plain rice. We also liked Shrimp in a blanket, Pad thai and mango with sticky rice. Prices are reasonable and service is prompt and warm.

This small restaurant in a strip mall has outstanding and authentic Thai food. They have an extensive menu. we were a group of 3 friends sharing dishes. The portions are very generous and the food was some of the best Thai we have had. They can serve any dishes mild.

In all fairness this was some time ago maybe even two years. I order over 65$ on food to take out. When I got home the food was essentially all the same. Tasted like cooked catsup. We tasted all of the order then put in down the garbage disposal. Told Mgr what had happened but you could tell she had... More
