Not a lot of choice for Thai in Boise so our place is Chiang Mai. Every time the service is friendly , the tea is hot and the food is great. This time the #52 entree Moo Shu with beef did not disappoint. For the best mai and pa Thai food it's Chiang Mai!

Located in the same strip mall at Orchard and Emerald Streets as the Wok Inn Noodle and the Orient Market, Chiang Mai fits right in. Their stir-fry dishes are excellent and they really sing when you ask them to make them hot and spicy. Many places say they offer hot, but barely break a sweat. the Chiang Mai chefs know... More

Great Thai food. Service is quick. The place is clean and gets very crowded at lunchtime but they still get your food to you in a timely manner. Worth a try to check it out!

This is our go-to place for office lunches. The neighborhood may seem a little sketchy, but the food is outstanding. I've only had a handful of different items here, but only because I keep craving the same dish, #5 with chicken and steamed rice, medium spicy.

The food, service and portions are amazing. We have yet to find any Thai restaurant that even comes close.

Decided to give it a try on a recent trip to Boise. Was very pleasantly surprised. Special of the day was shrimp ---- with asparagus. My wife is diabetic, so asked if they could do grilled shrimp with a little garlic and just steamed asparagus. They readily accommodated her. The asparagus was perfectly cooked and the shrimp was very tasty.... More

This is one of the best Asian food restaurants in Boise. The exterior is unimpressive, but don't let that scare you away. Consistently great food and service.

My friend and I ate here. The food was quick and tasty. I've been to Thailand and this isn't quite like the food I learned to cook over there...it's definitely been 'Americanized' but it's still good.

This was by far the best Thai food I've had outside of California. Fresh, spicy, and speedy service. Iced tea was amazing...so was the sticky rice.
