I have been on a quest to find another Thai place that serves a Pad Thai like this one, and have been very unsuccessful. This place serves the best Pad Thai I have ever had. It is simply perfection! Everything else is pretty good. It's in a great location, and they are always timely. Price is very reasonable. So if... More

This Thai restaurant is sooo delicious. The chicken coconut soup is to die for- it is not a syrupy creamy soup however, it's tart and delicious. The beef salad is also very good. Service is pretty slow, even when the place is empty. But the food is worth the wait.

My wife and I wanted something different and flavorful lunch and chose Thai1st. I had the Pad Thai and my wife had a Tofu Vegetable dish. Both were awesome. Our service was great and the meal was prompt - maybe 10 minutes max. We have been twice before over the last two years and have enjoyed it each time. Tuesday... More

Our favorite local place for Thai food. There's a cream cheese egg roll to die for and the soups are great, too. Love the Thai Lover dish and the eggplant vegetarian dish is also very good. Outdoor patio dining is available. Only suggestion would be have music playing indoors. A local gem.

This is not the best that I have had, but it was good and "hit the spot". We were eating with a vegetarian friend, so we ate only veg versions of dishes. Sometimes the veg versions can be a bit blander, but everything here was quite tasty with the sweet/salty/spicy blend you only get from Thai food. The tofu was... More

My wife and I visited today for lunch. She had the Masaman Curry and I had the Pad Prik. Both were very good. The waitress was a great resource for the items on the menu, as well as being very attentive. There were numerous other lunch selections that interested us and we will be back for dinner soon. Monday and... More
