I'm always happy with the taste, quality, price, and promptness when ordering for pick up. Parking can be tricky especially since the KFC tows pretty quickly. If you are hard up for a spot there is a lot of businesses that has parking with a short walk. I forget the business that's there now it use to be planet fitness... More

Not dependable. When it's good it's awesome but half the time disappointing. Order the same thing 3 times in a row each time it was different. Seemed to be skimping.

Compared to a nearby Thai restaurant, this restaurant serves fairly generic Thai food. The decor is minimalistic, the seating somewhat uncomfortable, but the wait staff was both friendly and efficient. Food quality seems good but not quite awesome...

The food at this restaurant is excellent; plenty of choice. The Owner and waitress were very friendly and the service was good. The Tom Yum Goong soup was particularly good, lots of shrimp and it had a nice kick, the Thai curries were excellent, it appears that the ingredients are fresh and the portions were just right. Some dinner menu... More

I've been dining here quite a few times and every time the service is impeccable and the food tasty. We went for the taster starter to share and was great. The curries are great and always a safe bet, with the lemon grass and thai basil making every bite flavourful. My personal favourite is the Tom Yum soup. Try it... More

Have been here several times, always order something different, and it's always excellent. The menu selection is pretty expansive, and there are some unique options such as boar. There only two drawbacks - it's basically a storefront , so it's small, and there is zero parking. But if you're willing to park on a side street and walk, it's definitely... More

Awesome thai food. Parking isn't great but manageable. Better than any thai place in New haven. Great Curry's and the spring rolls are terrific.

You have to go out of your way to get to Thai Awesome. It's in a nondescript storefront and parking can be challenging -- there are two to three spots out front and a few in the back. Still, it's worth the hassle to come here for tasty Thai food that's better than anything I've had in nearby New Haven.... More

We found Thai Awesome on another website and the reviews were mostly good. We tried this place for the first time. The summer roll appetizer ($5.99, two large rolls cut in half) consisted of shrimp, vegetable and rice noodle wrapped in rice paper served with spicy peanut sauce was fresh and delicious. The vegetable pad thai ($9.99) -- noodle dish,... More
