My favorite Thai place (so far) in Phoenix

There is nothing special about the location or appearance in a strip center. The emphasis is on food and service, and they are both very good. The Tom Kha soup was outstanding! I got it with shrimp and there were about 5 medium sized shrimp in it. My entree was fried fish. It was served with a... read more

This is a hidden gem in a Phoenix strip mall and was recommended by a family member. Our group went there for dinner and ordered the Tom Kai soup. It was delicious and well prepared. This restaurant goes the extra step of straining out the lemon grass and ginger before they serve it. If they didn't, I would not go... More

I've tried a few places in the valley and this is my go to favorite for lunch. I work in the North Valley so I can't compare it to the whole area, but from the few Thai places in the area I've tried, this place is fantastic. Its a small dining area, but so far, out of the times I've... More

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
