Decent for Thai Food in Alabama

Loved that this place was a stone's throw from the Embassy Suites hotel. I was able to walk over one night for dinner. The service was great. I had the crab rangoon wontons which were pretty good. And I tried the Pud Thai with chicken. It was tasty. It could have used a bit more spice and peanuts... read more

Lek's is in the restored Union Station train depot. It sits on the other side of the tracks from the Alabama River, which is worth a look. Most of the entrees can be had with tofu. We started with a serving of two basil rolls, a thin rice pancake wrapped around veggies and tofu. We liked that each of us... More

You cannot go wrong with Lek's Railroad Thai. The location is great in the old train station. The parking is less than desireable but with a parking deck right next door, not a huge deal. The service is always top notch and the food, including sushi is great! Cashew chicken spicy is my fav. Give it a try!

Taken to Lek's by a client in Montgomery and wasn't disappointed at all. Authentic Thai dishes and more. Service is great and portions are substantial. Great location in the old train depot downtown next to the river. Roam around after the meal and catch the views.

Charming location in downtown Montgomery tucked into the old railroad depot. The restaurant embraces the railroad heritage in its naming conventions on the menu. They offer the expected thai staples - curry, pad thai, etc and have a selection of sushi too. It has an upper-scale feel and that's reflected in higher prices - but the food is top notch!... More

Recently went to Lek's for a mid week lunch. The food and service was great. Be sure to get there early as the place fills up quickly.

I went here for dinner while I was on a work trip. It was difficult to find, and the decor was odd. However, the food was good (I had pud thai), and the service was great. The wine was NOT good, however, so I don't recommend it. It was a great experience for the price, though.

My wife and I enjoyed Pud Thai and Kow Pud today. Tasty. The spring rolls were cruncy and very good.

I've been coming here with my family for decades, and it is one of my favorite restaurants of all. Lek is one of the nicest proprietors I've ever met and he always comes by to say hi to us. The man also knows his sushi. I've eaten sushi all over the States, and I can assure you, I have never... More
