We ate here for dinner while we were in town. It requires an cab or Uber ride to get there from the French Quarter. The food was very good and the service was also good. The restaurant was not that crowd when we got there but filled up by the time we left at 9;00. I had the cashew chicken... More

They are nice here but the Pad Thai and the Drunken Noodles are not as good as other places serve. They are set up to carry out so I still like to order there

They have a separate list of vegan items that are absolutely delicious! We love coming to this place whenever we are in the mood for Thai. It's clean, the staff is nice and the food is great!

The food here is great and they recently redid the inside and now it has a cool, modern theme. A bit more expensive, but I've never had a bad meal here.

New Years Eve we had a great dinner at La Thai on Prytania. To start I had a bowl of Tom Ka Gai that may have been the best I have tasted so far, and I have had it many different places. My wife had Paht Kee Mao (drunken noodles), and it was excellent. I had Green Curry with chicken,... More

This is one of our neighborhood restaurants. Have been going since it opened. We have found the quality to be up and down - not sure if it's multiple chefs, or what, but sometimes great, and other times okay. Would love to see this wonderful family have a bit more consistency here. By far the best restaurant to occupy this... More

We were there last weekend. It has been chosen by popular acclamation best Thai restaurant this year in New Orleans. It deserves the recognition. Casual, friendly staff, reasonable prices, great food.

Food was ok. Everthing we had seasoned the same. Drinks were expensive and not generous. Service was scattered.

Staying in Uptown / Carrollton

Neighbourhood Profile
Uptown / Carrollton
Very much their own self sufficient unit within the greater metro area, Uptown and Carrollton tone down the urban edge with a friendly attitude and collegiate feel. Home to Tulane and Loyola Universities, all the students living in the area ensure that Uptown and Carrollton stay youthful, cosmopolitan and vibrantly fun. Two of the liveliest thoroughfares for nightlife and socializing (and yes of course more of the city’s outstandingly good food and live music) are Oak Street and Maple Street. For a truly wild time, the expansive acreage of Audubon Park, with its zoo, golf course, and actual patches of swampy wetlands, means peace and quiet are never too far away.
