On July 3, 2013 I went for lunch at Somat the Thai Guy. The restaurant is closed and the restaurant is no longer in business.

It is with great sadness we report this restaurant is closed permanently. They announced that they would not be renewing their lease and the place was packed all of May-June 2013 to closing day June 29.

We try to get to this restaurant as often as we can. it is run by an actual Thai family, not by Vietnamese or Chinese as many Thai restaurants around here appear to be. The food is consistently fresh, authentic and tasty. The spice level is high here, we never order anything other than 'mild'. Whereas we often get medium... More

Food was good at the Thai Guy, but expect to wait a little longer for it to arrive. I'd recommend doing take-out only. The waiting staff were a little undertrained. It would have been nice to have water filled more often and been asked how we liked the food. HAVE THE LEMONGRASS SOUP, IT IS YUMMY!

We went for lunch yesterday, because I when I have a cold nothing is better than Thai soup to help clear my sinuses and make me feel better. We had tried a Thai restaurant across from Stone Road Mall, which is pretty abysmal, so based on the excellent reviews this restaurant had received--we headed off for a good lunch. Well,... More
