Small place but clean. Service is good and food tasty. Portions are large and proves reasonable. Thai teriyaki chicken was good as was soup and spring rolls. Share or be prepared for leftovers!

A dear friend flew in from LA and this is how we impressed her: multiple appetizers and Thai Ice Tea from Thai Cafe did the trick. Recommended: Thai Ice Tea, tofu appetizer, avocado-topped tempura roll, and dumplings. Pull two tables together, gather round for great food and conversation, and the impression is complete. Highly Recommended.

I was so sad when this place closed. But I found it was closed only due to a remodel and it has since reopened. My birthday celebration here was fantastic! The Thai Ice Tea is still some of the best I have EVER had. The tofu pouches are still delightful! And the sharing of a potato curry and a massaman... More

Really enjoyed our meal. The place is not big, but the menu is and it is great. Had the shrimp pad thai and it was outstanding. Would recommend the lemon grass soup and the pork dumplings. Yummy. Service was outstanding, very friendly and very fast. Food was fresh, hot and tasty.

A nice little Thai place in a strip mall, with a lunch buffet. The spice level varies on request if you order off the menu. If you're going to order the Thai Hot, though, be sure you really mean it, because it's nuclear. For those of us who aren't that brave, 2 or 3 usually will suffice. The menu isn't... More

Subtitle: Simple Strip Mall Houses Ridiculously Fantastic Cuisine I don't really care for strip malls - in any sense of the setting. There's always exceptions to rules, and this simple Broad Ripple strip mall is home to four wickedly tasty spots (Biscuits, Poccadio, Shalimar, and now Thai Cafe). I am truly in love with Thai Iced Tea and Indianapolis offers... More

They are not as good as they used to be. However, they are still pretty good. The "Thai Hot" is no longer scary. The drunken noodles were some of the best I have had in town. The Pad Prik was average. I reallly enjoyed the soup. As they are under different ownership from when I had been there before I... More

Thai Café used to be my favorite. Unfortunately, they got new owners and the food and customer service went way down hill. I decided to give it another try tonight. When I got home, they had given me the wrong order. I called to get a refund as I didn't want to spend another 30 minutes in the car. They... More
