Great Thai restaurant in Lakewood - with some caveats

I've eaten at Star Thai many times thanks to a couple of Thai friends that love the place. It's small with a kitchen within a few feet and the owner is always smiling and very friendly. Kind of reminds me of a Thai restaurant in the back alley of an Asian restaurant district. Not too many seating... read more

Star Thai has long been my go to place for authentic Thai. I have been to Thailand many times and this is the closest you can get to Thai street food that I have found.

This is truly a neighborhood Thai joint, but the neighborhood is smack dab in Lakewood! It could be in a back alley in Thailand. The cooking is honest and down home. Be careful. The hot is really hot, and the medium packed some heat too. I'd advise starting mild and spicing it up yourself. We had coconut soup, the green... More

I was not impressed with the Pad Thai. It was fast service, but the flavor needs help and the place could stand to be cleaned up a bit inside.

I can comprehend why some reviewers have mentioned the portion size is small. Though the size of the dish is not an issue with us. We're not heavy eaters. We ordered fresh spring rolls, crispy fried egg rolls, and Massamen curry (dinner size). Fresh spring rolls tasted very different from Vietnamese style but still very good! Also curry was delicious!... More

We really enjoyed our visit. Atmosphere means nothing,.... if you want the atmosphere of Thailand this is where you see it. Owner, cook, cashier, waiter, they do it all in one.

It is not about the atmosphere here it is all about the food. Which is just as good as any other thai restaurant, however the prices here are reasonable. you should give it a try!

We had dinner at Star Tai this past weekend. I would describe the restaurant as small and cozy, but in need of a deep cleaning. We enjoyed spring rolls and Chinese dumplings for appetizers and they were very good. Our main courses of Pad Thai and Terriyak Chicken, with complementary white rice. Both were tasty, but nothing special. Service from... More

My boyfriend and I went there for lunch. The first thing we noticed was the strong, lingering stench of stale cigarette smoke in the restaurant. They have couches and a tv in the back, it looks like they live there and smoke butts inside, gross. Everything looked pretty old and dirty. It wasn't a clean, good feeling. We ordered the... More

I was introduced to Star Thai by a veteran who had been stationed in Thailand for a few years. He told me that this was one of the most authentic Thai restaurants he has found. Having never been to Asia, I have to take his word for it. What I do know is that I absolutely LOVE the food! When... More
