Best Thai Food in the Bayou Region

I've been enjoying consistent quality food from Emerald Fine Thai Cuisine for years. It is hands down the best Thai food in the region. It may not have the most extensive menu or a full service bar, but if you want a good variety of excellent Thai food, this is your place. The portions are... read more

Really, there wasn't much to say about this place. Its a little shop in a strip mall and is pretty non-descript. Food came fast and the server has been nice both times we visited. The food itself was unmemorable but not bad....just ok.

The food was good here. The service was good but only two for a crowded lunch group. They did an admirable job considering. The Egg Rolls were very small. The Satay salad was good but it could have used twice the satay sauce. It;s really more like 3.5, better than average but not very good. Had trouble finding it. It's... More

I love coming here with my family. We LOVE the pad thai and spring rolls. The service is always top notch too! Love the decor!

You get five options for spiciness when you order. I had the pad thai (No.2 heat), which was hot enough for me. Only one waitress and one cook. They coped with 6 people but if they ever got busy, good luck! Waitress had just started, was not Thai and had very little training but she did her best. Some confusion... More

Ate 2 meals here during a recent visit. The food and service were great. Fresh and delicious. During a late Saturday lunch when the place was nearly empty, I could hear some of the birthday party racket from Chuck E Cheese next door, so if you're looking for quiet and romantic that may bother you.

Thai place in Houma- From spicy to mild, Emerald is the Thai place in the Lafourche/Terrebonne area. Servers help you determine what is your heat level and meal of choice. Make sure you try it with a Thai tea. Don’t bother with a soft drink.

This place has the best combo fried rice anywhere. The cook will bless you with "a little something extra" if you are a regular customer.

I highly recommend Emerald Thai. Their food is a much needed vacation from the chains that line MLK Blvd. Unfortunately located next to a Chuckie Cheese (be prepared for sporadic thuds on the adjoining wall), this quaint Thai restaurant is cozy, well decorated, and faultlessly staffed. Service has always been prompt and with a smile. But the main draw is... More
