I went here two nights ago with an old friend. He found it on Yelp. It was pretty late and on their website it shows they close at 9, but when we asked, they said 9:30. My friend ordered soup before we got there and it was REALLY good. I'm not sure which one it was, but it's the one... read more

T the Thai Tangerine restaurant tonight everything was perfect, if unlike most Thai restaurants in US. The unassuming strip mall exterior hid a spotless, very simple interior. Service with a smile was perfect. Prompt, efficient, courteous, accurate service. Someone at a nearby table found they did not like the standard recipe for a dish, and another one was on its...

Really please with our food and the service, also made a lovely change to the usual US food! Made to feel really welcome, food was 1st class. We had red and yellow Thai curry, rice, spring rolls, chicken satay and a Tiger Steak starter dish - will defiantly return.

There are a few negative reviews of Thai Tangerine here, but my experience was pretty good. I came for a very early dinner (5pm) and was the only customer. I decided on Pad Thai with tofu and the size and quality were fine, although the lime slice was tiny. The service was typical for many Asian restaurants: you don't see... More

Ordered food via delivery. Half of food was not what was ordered, but nothing we could do as we weren't at restaurant. Food seemed to be like microwaveable entrees that could be bought at a store..... Noodles are Itchiban?!? Would not recommend or eat here again. After this actually considering eating Thai food again :(

What separates this from the norm is that it is a bit more authentic. Hot means hot (medium was plenty hot for us), and not sweetened as so many Americanized Thai restaurants are these days.

It was because of the high rating that we felt to try this Thai restaurant and was disappointed with the food. The lunch menu with the shrimp vegetables only came with 4 small shrimps. The Chicken combination plate with Pad Thai noodle was ok portion for me, but the taste and flavor were so-so. We were the first ones to... More

nice little thai restaurant within walking distance of our hotel. We shared an order of potstickers and thai shrimp spaghetti, which had a nice heat to it. Friendly staff and prompt service.

I can believe this place was empty. I know it was a Tuesday night but OMG. Really good Bangkok style Thai food. Super nice family run business. Pad Tai, fried noodle dish. Yummy. I had a soup with fish balls and ground chicken and a crab claw. Wow. Delicious....

Recently moved to the area and has been to some other thai in the neighborhood. Glad to find this restaurant. The inside is clean and nice. Fresh cooked food. If you love thai curry, you wont be disappointed, they are good. Met the owner Tony who is very nice guy. We'll definitely come again and try out their dinner menu.
