Try the Salad Kai!

This is a small restaurant, but big in flavor! Don't come if you are looking for atmosphere. Come here for the FOOD! You really must start your meal with the Salad Kai. The dressing is sweet, but not cloying. The Num Sod is a flavor combination that is unlike anything I've ever had before. The... read more

I ate here for the first time a couple years back because the service at the other Thai restaurant in Tracy went south. One of the best decisions I've ever made. Sam, the owner is always there. He has a great crew of servers. He has the best Thai cooks. The food has never been good, it has ALWAYS been... More

We eat here often, and enjoy the food and the atmosphere. The staff is very friendly, courteous, and helpful. I would recommend this to anyone who really wants some authentic Thai cuisine.

Sorry, I wish that I could rate it higher. The food seemed about average, the service was very slow and did not seem well trained, and the restaurant itself needed a major overhaul. Tracy really needs good restaurants, so hopefully someone that cares about this place will invest some time and effort into bringing it up to a new standard.

I have the number to this restaurant on speed dial! Love this place! Get at least a salad from this place once a week! Great customer service but the decor inside lacks. The food makes up for it though!!

The food is great here, we eat there at least twice a month. The service is excellent, but the biggest draw back is the atmosphere, very plain

The Thai Cafe is a famil run place with excellent Thai food. Known for salads and curry, you cannot go wrong with anything. The decor is lack-luster, but you don't come for the view. The food's the thing. I give the Pad Thai five stars. Add a Singha and what else would one need? (They do a big take out... More

Thai Cafe is always packed at lunch and with good reason. Food is excellent, served up fresh and quick with reasonable prices. The seafood rice dish is wonderfully flavored and has a good mix of calamari, shrimp and scallops. Can't go wrong with that one. Their Thai tea is excellent and not overly sweet. It's just right. If you have't... More
