Good and yummy!

My wife and I have been to this place numerous number of times. We have ordered several vegetarian dishes here [with tofu] and have liked it every single time. They are not so consistent with their heat level. Sometimes hot is not hot at all and other times it was very hot. Other than that, the... read more

This is the second Thai place we've been to in Phoenix based on glowing Tripadvisor reviews, and also the second "nope." Many suggest that it is authentic, and the number of older Thai patrons would suggest that this is the case. The server was friendly and the space is pleasant. However, we found the food to be just OK, at... More

Quaint little Thai restaurant in a strip mall. Staff are very attentive and friendly. Food is great. We like spicy, but "medium" is plenty spicy for us. My shrimp-loving husband always starts with Tom Kha soup as an appetizer. I love their Veggie Rolls. Hubby likes the Spicy Fried Fish dish. We both like their curry dishes. The servers want... More

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 sauce with a... 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
