This is not the best Thai restaurant in the are a but this is definitely of the top quality Thai restaurant. I ate here few times and like the food. Surprisingly couldn't find any Thai restaurant in whole South Bay which could beat Khow Thai of Boulder, CO.

I've enjoyed my meals at this restaurant. It's got a calm, relaxed atmosphere and the food is fresh and tasty. The service is attentive and good. You can modify how much "heat" (aka spice) you want your food, which is nice for those of us who don't want too much heat. They have a wide range of choices and I've... More

I was prepared to like this place, but sadly I was disappointed. The waitress forgot any non standard items in our order. She was inattentive and abrupt. The food was OK, but not exciting.

If you want traditional Thai food, make sure you request medium heat. Our waiter automatically brought all our food mild and the flavor was not good. Our Pad Thai noodles were greasy with no flavor, the fisherman soup only tasted of lime juice -not lemon grass and our papaya salad was too sweet and not fresh. We will not return... More

First the positives: - The service was quite good. - The cute riser stand, that the dish was placed and served on, was very nice. - The restaurant itself is nice and on the very popular Murphy street. Now the not so good: This is (only) the third Thai restaurant I've eaten at. Compared to the other two places, I... More

The tom yam soup was just about good. So was the yellow seafood curry. Service was not upto mark for sure. We were 'forgotten' for 15 mins before someone came to our table. Billing too took a long time. I have to try more Thai restaurants before I decide on a good one.

I never like noodles and never ate them, first time I like noodles here. There different types of thai cuisine I haven't tried all of them, "Pad Thai Chicken"(noodles+chicken) was my favourite.

For lunch the variety of the specials and the value are really good, plus the service is fast and professional. For dinner, I find the prices to be high for the amount of food. The quality of the food, spices are presentation are really nice, but I think they have taken the pricing a tad too high. Based on this,... More
