Best Thai west of Bangkok96

If I don't feel like driving all the way to Telegraph Rd, this is the next best place for Thai. Great pad thai every time, and very friendly service. The older lady is always fun and playful and the man is friendly and helpful too.

The lady who works at this restaurant is just rude. But the food was good. I don't think I'll be returning here.

The restaurant is relatively small and the seating is limited. It is rarely very busy but always seems to have some clientele. The prices are reasonable and the food is okay.

We generally go to Thai Bistro up the street, but sometimes we want to mix it up and with TB being closed at the time we were out for lunch on a weekend, we decided to head over to Lai Thai. We had been here before and while there food is decent, I much prefer Thai Bistro, but it was... More

This is by far some of the best Thai food in the Canton area. I especially like that the dishes seem much less oily than other Thai restaurants. Couple that with the spunky personality of the owner, and it's a winning combination.

Restaurants situated in shopping centers and strip malls never really appeal to me, but my wife and I were in Canton shopping and in a bit of a hurry when we stumbled upon Lai Thai. We got there just before noon and there was only one other patron in the restaurant. Service was quick and we ordered both our meals... More

Food is decent, but the service is poor. I have been there about five times and each time the staff is rude. I am hoping to try another Thai place in canton that just opened recently. Why do people own restaurants when they don't like dealing with people? I just don't get it.

Don't waste your money here. Go a mile west to Thai Bistro and get good Thai food!! The food at Lai Thai is bland and watery. They definatlley need a better cook and use better ingredients. Every dish is a little skimpy on the contents. You might get half the chicken in a dish than you would at Thai Bistro.... More
