You would think you needed to go to a Thai restaurant with fancy decor, teakwood sculptures and piped in music? Well put that out of your head. Krua Thai is located in a strip mall of grocery stores, beauty salons, etc. Gets no attention from the street unless you know about it. Upon entering you find a very neat and... More

This small, friendly, family run place is our "go to" spot for wonderful Thai food. The coconut curry soup is amazing! The curries are delicious and we love the spicy eggplant dish. Be careful about asking for Thai hot unless you are truly wanting intensely spicy food.

I love this small independent family run Thai Food establishment! I came in for lunch one day right before they were getting ready for the dinner break, and was promptly greeted by a smiling a visibly hardworking server. She sat me down, and got my drinks in a flash! I ordered the sesame chicken (which is very good by the... More

This one is the nearest to where I stay so visit it when I feel like having Thai food. The food is good and prepare as per your spice need. The interiors is nicely made with Thai designs.

This is a small family-run Thai restaurant in a small strip mall. The food is excellent authentic but inexpensive Thai and the owners are extremely friendly and helpful. The menu is extensive. We will definitely go back!

Can't wait to go back, discovered this place while attempting to visit another restaurant in this strip that decided not to open for lunch on this day. Lucky break, as Krua thai stepped in nicely instead. Small interior but comfortable enough. Good service and seemed popular on this saturday for lunch. Nice tasty red Curry dish and fried rice dishes... More

Just horrible. Tea was rancid (seriously gone bad) and curry was sour rather than sweet-hot. Waiter pushed back when I sent the bad food away. I recommend bypassing this place. The "beef?" was minimal and it was grey in color... In general, this place skimps on important ingredients like meet or coconut milk and they ruin the dish. I will... More

From the outside, you would never guess what a gem this place is as it is hidden in an old strip mall. Once you're inside, you realize you've landed in a great hole in the wall Thai joint that has old school decor, Thai music playing in the background, and you can hear the Thai ladies in the kitchen speaking...

This place is great! Awesome neighborhood spot. Great Thai food at really reasonable prices. The only reason this place gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because sometimes the food can be just a touch oily for my liking. They always get the spiciness right which both my fiancee and I appreciate as he loves spicy spicy food and I... More
