Great atmosphere, great food pricey. But the service was poor. It was Tuesday night another couple and I were the only people in the restaurant. I only saw my server twice, when he took the order and when I got my food. I needed a knife but no one was around to ask, I want to order more food to... More

Nattiya's fare is fresh, flavorful, and delicious. Although it has the Thai dishes that we are all used to, they are all prepared with care. It is family owned and operated, and also delivers REALLY far. The ambiance is peaceful and restful, which makes me feel pampered even during a busy work day. It has never let me down.

We've dined here several times. Usually, it's pretty OK, but never outstanding. Pleasant ambiance. The portions are small, relative to other Thai restaurants in the county. But the main problem is inconsistency: sometimes the food is pretty good, other times like last night, pretty poor. For one thing, I asked for my dish to be spicy, and it was bland.... More

I have been going to this restaurant for several years. The decor is very appealing as is the service. The food is quite good. However, it is located in a strip mall with lots of other small businesses. It is a good place for lunching out in small groups.

This was our first visit to Northern Spirits which is part of Nattiyas Thai restaurant. We went there for the music because they have Jazz on Friday and Saturday. The music was wonderful and not too loud. The restaurant was busy. From the entrance to the restaurant you know this is a great place. It is simply done right. We... More

Unsure whether my husband would enjoy Thai or not, he agreed to give it a try. Let me clarify that this is a small restaurant in a strip mall with a mix of fast food, dental offices, and personal services salons. So atmosphere is more lunch-oriented than dinner, in my opinion. He and I both REALLY enjoyed my peanut Curry.... More

Maybe it was an off day for them, but I was not impressed. Short summary: Way overpriced for Thai food, small portions, lackluster service, mediocre taste. Nice décor and clean. 2/5 rating. More Details: I've been wanting to visit this place ever since I drove by a few months ago. The decoration was nice and everything looked clean. I liked... More

In all fairness to all the people who really enjoy Thai, I guess I'm not familiar with it. I thought I was but I guess I'm not. I read all these reviews and decided to try it - after all, I enjoy Chinese and other Asian food. Well, they are ALL SO different. Even within each country depending on what... More
