Diner Gone Groovy Thai - Our Favorite

Great lunch at a reasonable price. Very tasty. Food is fresh and portions are decent sized. I really enjoy their spicy dishes. Flavorful without being too spicy. I'll be back.

Great spot for a very fresh lunch. My favorite as they are fast and the meals are fantastic All ingredients are crisp in the Thai style and the heat level is just enough.

We LOVE this restaurant!! We used to live in Hartford 15 years ago, and continue to travel 65-ish miles to visit...we always have dinner here. The Laotian sausage is incredible, the Thai spaghetti is very good, the curries lovely, and we love many of the appetizers, particularly the veg spring rolls and the corn fritters. The service is usually great... More

Traveling through on business and read others reviews. It looks like a diner but with an Asian /American modern twist. Booths seem private with the curtains, great touch! Great service! The server was friendly and extremely helpful with our difficult decisions on what to order. Everything on the menu sounded amazing. So, we narrowed it down to this: Appetizer was... More

This place has the best possible food. It's really good if you are looking for something different, and you won't be disappointed! Anything you get off that menu would be simply breath taking! When you taste their food, you can tell that it is real ethnic food; not some knock off restaurant claiming to serve thai. I have been there... More

We ate at this Asian diner a few years ago and are glad to say that the food is still great. This time we had the Drunken noodles with seafood, the Wild Boar stir fry, and crispy spring rolls as our appetizer. Everything was delicious. Our meal came to about $ 34.00 including tax, tip and two soft drinks. Not... More

This is great food at a very reasonable price! If I didn't have to drive all the way to West Hartford I'd eat there 3 times per week. It's authentic thai cuisine, impeccably done, and the whole family can eat without wrecking the bank!

While Thai food is served at this restaurant, along with some Vietnamese and Japanese dishes, this is a Laotian restaurant. But both the Laotian and Thai food are exceptional. I would, however, stay away from the Vietnamese and Japanese dishes because they aren't authentically prepared. I took a friend who works with some Laotian folks to East West Grill. They... More

A 1950s chrome diner meets Thai restaurant. This was one of my best dinners in Hartford! I had the Green Curry with Chicken and it was delightful. I only wish I was not traveling and could have take the left overs home. A great place!
