Great authentic food, friendly service. A daughter lived in Thailand for 6 years and she and I both really like Coconut Thai. Genuine, authentic Thai ford - much better than Amarin in my opinion. Restaurant is very small and you go to Coconut Thai for the food not the ambience. Have eaten at restaurant for apx 10 years and have... More

Quick and convenient Thai restaurant. Friendly people. Almost exclusively for take-out (maybe two seats are available). I really like the chicken and asparagus dinner.

This is one of our regular staples. I've probably sampled 80% of the menu over time, and almost everything is very good. It's got a tiny, tiny seating area, so it's mostly a takeout place. The staff are friendly and the food is both good and fast.

Got pad Thai from her and it was very filling but the tofu that others got was not very good. Other than that all dishes were good.

We've come here for lunch three weeks in a row because our 1st experience was so good. The food has fresh distinctive flavors and great quality. I especially recommend the salads which feature a variety of vegetable, seafood and chicken and great seasonings. I wish I could remember the name. Each of our group has had the same salad more...

Coconut Thai is a very small restaurant with about six small tables, Located in Wellesley, MA. It appears that most of their business is take out food. The place is stale and drab. It seems that there has been no renovation or upgrade to the place since they opened up. The lady at the counter is extremely unfriendly and unwelcoming,... More

Coconut Thai is reliably good Thai food. Solid menu, tasty dishes, quick preparation. It's very small, so most of their business is for take-out. But if you don't mind the tiny space, it's nice to eat in sometimes. One issue: sometimes they don't answer the phone!

This is a take-out with seats for those who want to eat on the premises as my partner did. The food was indifferent, the wait staff were surly and unsmiling. It didn't look very clean. We won't return.
