Description: The striking orange and gold decor at Boca's brand new, sleek Kao Tong Modern Thai Restaurant just hints at the extraordinary quality of their food. Settle in with a Thai Iced Tea while designing your special feast, beginning with a bowl of the most luscious Tom Yum Soup; hot and sour, soothing and spicy. Try a marinated Shrimp in a Blanket, dipped into a sweet Chili Sauce. Red, green and yellow Curries; Rice Bowls with either brown or white grains; Pad Woon Sen Noodles with a garden of vegetables in a tangle of clear glass noodles; classic Pad Thai with chicken, shrimp, tofu or lobster; and a lemony, minty Ocean Salad of fresh shrimp, scallop, mussels and veggies.

While Kai was one of our favorite Boca restaurants it has been replaced by Nori's. Even better. Nori food was wonderfully full of spice and priced great

I like this restaurant....maybe because its so convenient for us...we live close by. We have tried many different dishes and they were all good. We have found the staff pleasant and knowledgeable. I would like to see this place do well... the decor is lovely and they seem to try so hard.

Obviously the presentation was what this chef excelled at. The food was overcooked and tasteless. If you want excellent Thai food, visit Thai Spice in Ft Lauderdale. Pass on this place. Even the music was horrible.

As I read the other reviews my wife and I wonder if we were in the same restaurant. Honestly, this was one of the worst Thai restaurant food we have ever eaten ! The service matched the food. Everything came out very hot, so hot that you knew that it came out of a microwave oven. There are other Thai... More

We came in with party of 7 and made a reservation just in case. Our table was all set up when we arrived and sat down right away. The first thing I noticed was the 'out of the ordinary decor'. It put a smile on my face right away. The unique colors, design and trinkets were very well thought out.... More

This restaurant definitely deserves 5 stars for the food alone. Each dish we had was totally authentic, rich in flavor, cooked perfectly and beautifully presented. It's clear however that they need to iron out some other issues and that's why I knocked off a star. After the terrific appetizers (complementary salads followed by Tom Kha with lots of shrimp, Won... More

We're new to the area and just looking for some decent Thai food. It was empty when we arrived so we were skeptical but found that Kao Tong was really a nice surprise! The decor borders on tackiness since the holiday lights and garlands as well as the readily visible cleaning supplies and stacked boxes detracted from the bright and... More

I am going to overlook the Christmas cheesy decorations outside. That there is outside seating is a plus. Don't bother dressing ...even though the address is Boca....this restaurant merits my approval for its outstanding cuisine. The standards: Beef/chicken satay are not dry pieces of dead meat on a stick. All simple dishes are elevated to excellent creations of the chef.... More
