Food was excellent! We ordered the soft shell crab, garlic prawns, broccoli with crispy pork, president's fried rice, bbq pork ribs, pad thai and the crispy wontons. We loved everything! This restaurant has a wide range of items in their menu that will surely please everyone in your party's palate. My favorites were the soft shell crab and the garlic... More

I love Thai food, and have tried many Thai restaurants, many of which have been good. None is better than President Thai. They have a broad range of choices and I have tried many different dishes, all of which have been superb. My favorite is Green Curry with sole fillets. The fish is fresh; the curry is wonderful, and you... More

We arrived fairly early on a Friday evening and were immediately seated. The servers were friendly and professional. The menu appears fairly standard for Thai - all the familiars. The difference, however, is the preparation and taste. This is not the standard take-out style Thai that, while good tasting, just seems like uninspired copycats of each other. President Thai really... More

Bring the family, as many of the others in the restaurant do. The high-pitched cries are muffled by the general din of diners enjoying first-rate Thai food, served by a pleasant, energetic staff. People keep coming, and after the parking lot fills up, people park on the street. The board noodles with chicken was excellent, as was the seafood pad... More

Visiting friends who claimed to have the best Thai by far in the area. Service was great but the dishes were bland and lacked that wonderful blend of Thai spices that you would expect. Portions were large and if your taste likes less spice than President Thai would work for you. We eat Thai all the time and I would... More

Had a wonderful meal with the family. The staff was very accommodating and friendly. We ordered 3 curries (green, red, and massaman) and pad Thai to share. Everything was great and my favorite was the massaman which had onions, potatoes, and cashews in a rich, creamy, curry. The staff was very courteous and professional and my water glass was never...

We were quickly seated at a nice table for two, but just behind us, was a large family group with children and quite noisy, so we asked to be moved across the room. That helped. We started off with chicken satays with a lovely peanut sauce. There were six, which is quite generous. Then, we moved on to soup and... More

Being a thai food enthusiast, I decided to give this place a shot with my family judging from the great Yelp reviews. After a looong time of eating pad thai filled with soy and fish sauce, this place finally got pad thai right with a heaping serving and fresh ingredients and true pad thai flavor. The yellow curry was also... More
