My wife and I came to Kao after an afternoon movie down the block at the Regency Majestic Theater complex. The place was nearly empty (only 3:45pm when we arrived), which meant that it was quiet. We split an order of Drunken Noodles with Chicken...More

We had a nice dinner at Kao Thai... great food and great service. The food was spiced well to eat taste. Two of us had fried rice and it was super.

Looking for takeout near the Doubletree Hotel, and, having been rebuffed by the elderly patriarch on guard at Sergio's, in the basement of the hotel ("We have no knives and forks," he said, so I guess diners eat pasta with their fingers), Kao Thai was...More
