A great alternative

My Wife and I were in Gloucester for a few days and while shopping on Main Street, we spotted a building painted purple. Yeah purple. That was our first clue that something different was inside. When we got closer we could see that this was the local Thai restaurant. I like Thai food, but my Wife... read more

I have been here a few times and I have not been impressed. I only return at someone else's request. Steak was tough and crunchy pad Thai was salty. The staff was friendly- very friendly!

I took my college aged niece and her roommate from NU out to dinner Friday night and we had an excellent meal, albeit spicier than I am used to. I ordered the Tom Yum soup and it was delicious but bordering on too hot (which I have never experience before while getting that soup) and I got the tofu with... More

This is a very nice little place in a convenient location. I thought that the staff were very nice and the place smelled great from the moment we walked in. I ordered one of the vegetarian pan fried dishes and it looked lovely but it was so salty! I hadas difficult time sleeping that night and my fingers were swollen.... More

Who knew? We've been to quite a few Thai restaurants around the U.S. but find that we like the Thai Choice in our new hometown the best. At lunch the food was flavorful and fresh, service pleasant and quick. We enjoyed the attractive decor with its exposed brick and tables covered with an interesting Thai (?) print under glass. Two...

First off this restaurant actually has their own parking lot. While the spaces are tight, there is no need to feed coins in a meter while you eat. This purple building is easy to spot. The atmosphere inside is quite pleasant. The appetizers, especially the Satay chicken, were quite generous in size and very tasty. Our main course of Tamarind... More

I've had Thai food from lots of restaurants in Massachusetts and this really is the best around. We've dined in the restaurant, but mostly we order takeout. The food is freshly cooked to order, the service is impeccably polite, and the prices are very reasonable. I highly recommend the delicious shrimp/chicken pad Thai and the pineapple fried rice.

Most folks seemed to be coming in to pick up take-out, but we ate in the restaurant. The food was delicious and the waitress was very sweet and helpful. We would definitely go back.

This is a favorite of my in laws when we come to visit. They are vegan and we are not, but we can both find things that we can eat. The restaurant itself is beautiful.
