Tasty Thai, be ready for heat!

We have dined here off and on over the years, this time I believe the restaurant has changed names. Despite this, dining is very much the same as in the past. Lots of entrees for lunch, many that can be very spicy. I prefer a milder version and was able to have a chicken cashew lunch that was very... read more

Urban Thai was excellent and we went there for years. The food was reliably of good quality and the flavors were fresh. The service was also good. Our server always remembered us as well as the dishes we usually ordered. Being a vegetarian, I am always looking for new "takes" on tofu dishes and our server always had one to... More

I have been going here for over 5 years and really enjoy the food. Service can be lax at times. But I have only had that problem two times. Great lunch deals!

I was so excited to see a modern Thai food place near my new home. I went in to find food styles from the 1970's. It wasn't upscale or urban. More like a truck stop with cheap wine. The peanut sauce tasted like Jif whipped with some oil. Really disappointing. Skip this one and go to the other Thai place... More

We went to this restaurant Friday night almost 9 pm. We were bone tired, but the food was great, service was prompt and all smiles. I was hungry but didn't want to blow my low carb diet, so opted for tom yum soup with lots of lean chicken and AMAZING flavor! I was blown away! It was sooo good I... More

We've tried Urban Thai with mixed results in the past, and this last experiece was the last straw. We waited several minutes at the front while the staff chatted in the back - totally being ignored despite waving and trying to make contact. The busser was the only person who seemed to care. We waited about 45 minutes for our... More

Both the food and service are fantastic. The staff will remember you and your previous orders, even if you go infrequently.

We live some distance from Urban Thia but the food is so much better than anything close that we take the 30 minute drive to eat here. Nice, clean, friendly place with excellent thia food. We always have the curry chicken because we can not get enough of it because this is a treck we make every couple of weeks.... More

I have been going to Urban Thai for years by myself, with family and friends. The staff is very friendly and you are never rushed. I take my time and enjoy the beef salad, fresh spring rolls, chicken eggplant, etc... The desserts are also wonderful. You will not be disappointed.
