We had lunch here on October 31 2016 which included cashew delight and eggplant tofu . both the preparations were very good . They also served chicken tomatoes clear soup and a veg role as complimentary . Soup was light and of very good taste . Service is very good . The cost is good value for money .

I love the green curry at Thai Cottage and the people are all very friendly but it's a disaster to park. There are so many businesses in this strip mall. If you want to go for lunch arrive between 11-11:30 and you should be okay. It will be packed and that's because it is a great place for Thai.

Tiny restaurant with not a lot of space but the food is good. I had Red Curry Chicken and it was good. They ask you for the level of spiciness which is quite good... That way you can avoid surprises. Service is quick. Overall good.

Amazing, crispy chicken wings with a delectable Asian sauce! Who thought a Thai restaurant would have such delicious wings. Coconut soup equally tasty. The fried rice not so tasty? The staff is efficient and friendly.

Visited for Lunch; great traditional pad thai and peanut chicken. Lots of lunch items under $10. A nice, recently updated décor. Neither too crowded nor too noise. It was possible to carry on a conversation. In sum, a great place for a lunch with co-workers or even a casual date.

The food here is very good and affordable. Lunch will run you under $10 with a drink and is more than enough to fill you up. Unfortunately the last two times I have gone have had issues. The vents for the air conditioning system were collecting condensation which was in turn dripping back down into the seating area, I had... More

We happened on this little restaurant and found serendipity! The food was delicious and portions large. The service was excellent and the price for two meals with soup, spring roll and entree was around $15. My Pad Thai was authentic and more than I could eat and my husband's red curry was fantastic and as hot as he likes it.... More

This is the only place that serves authentic Thai food in houston. The food is bursting with authentic flavours and a must try is the Thai iced tea. I make it a point to eat here at least once a week!

Looking for great, cheap Thai food? You've found it. The atmosphere is awesome and the service is even better. I would have given this a 5-star but we were short on time and only ordered appetizers. Everything we ordered came out fast and was delicious, the Thai iced coffee is definitely a winner. The place was packed on a Wednesday... More
