Thom Ka Gai (coconut and chicken soup) is so delicious here that we order the 4-person serving and take the extras home. Like the curries, the chicken and basil and the garlic chicken, too. Great eats at very reasonable prices!

Great food (don't pass up the Tom Kha Gai), great service, great prices. Everything was fantastic. I'm here for 3 more weeks and will be back.

Clearly a very friendly family-run operation with great service. My never-ending quest for the world's best fresh spring roll hit a snag here, as they only serve fresh rolls on certain days of the week. But I was able to get a chef's special that had as it's focus ices of spectacularly tender duck. Mix that transcendent fowl with basil... More

It really exceeded our expectations. The reviews sound too good to be true... but they are actually that good. Excelent food and excellent service. They noticed my wife didn't like ice in her drink and before she said anything there was no ice in her next drink. Thumbs up here.

Ate at Thai Derm the food was outstanding. I found this place from Yelp and if not for that would not have eaten here. The front is very unassuming and when you walk in it seemed very authentic. Both my husband and I had soup, mine was vegan and it was the best thai soup ever. Our main dishes were... More

We love their very authentic and inexpensive food. We have recommended it to many friends, who in turn have visited and loved Thai Derm. Thumbs up, great food, low price.

it's been here on bonifant street for at least 26 years -- because that's when we first started to come here. Very good soups, excellent pad thai, not crowded, service is good, and there is lots of parking.

The prices are good, the food is good and authentic. you can get it without fish sauce if you ask. The same Thai people have owned it and worked there for a long time. There is on street metered parking and a couple of lots nearby. It's not fancy but it's cute and nice.

This is a weird little place in a converted row house. The food, though, is really good. I especially like the Panang dishes. The staples, like Pad Thai and Larb Gai, are exceptionally well executed. There are often interesting things on the specials board. The staff often surprises you with a free dish - a cup of broth or a... More
