The food was bland. We both agree that we would not revisit. The restaurant is run down, floor dirty, and fixtures tatty. Goodness knows if the kitchen cleanliness is like the restaurant! I have never felt the need to write a bad review until now. Strangely, most tables were occupied!

The food is good, the prices are affordable and the lunch menu has great quality/price ratio! Nice place to enjoy a meal after the walk in the city center.

I've been to this charming restaurant on 31st December 2014. As the headquarters of Lai Thai was fully booked, my friends and I had dinner at the second branch nearby. The interior was well decorated and the soft lights created a romantic atmosphere. There was no English menu so everybody chose instinctively the dishes. I really enjoyed my first time eating thai food such as sweet and sour caramelized pork ribs and noodles with roasted duck and vegetables. Portions were large and spicy with plenty of chili peppers and fresh coriander. I had no wine to match the meal but lovely jasmine tea served in a beautiful handpainted pottery. Price per person is quite good (about 30 euros) while I found the service too shy and slow.

The Meal here was very tasty, with the service being very good. We did go into 2 other restaurants before ending up here but were completely ignored so left! The Red Thai Curry was exceptionally hot but good and the pad thai very fresh and tasty.

Even during lunchtime, chances are that it is full here. Therefore, there are not many places available. The lunch menu is somewhat limited, the evening menu extensive. From our table you could look outside in a nice way. The prices are reasonable. The restaurant is nicely decorated.

In the menu the amount of peppers indicates how hot the dishes are, and that fits properly. Two peppers and more is pretty tough! The portions are generous. Sadly, the Tom Kha Gai soup was mediocre. The other dishes were partly good (especially the fish was very tasty) and some moderate.
We had ordered noodles instead of rice, but we got both (and had to pay extra for the noodles). The noodles were very very tasty and with a nice structure.
All in all, some good and some weak points. For lunch we would not not come back (especially since there are so many other tasty Asian restaurants in Aachen), the evening menu still gives possibilities.
