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

The food is quite good and the prices are reasonable. The service is friendly and quick. We've eaten there many times and have not been disappointed. Try to sit in one of the raised booths.

I always eat the same thing because that's what I like. The pad thai is really good, not too spicy so if you really like spicy tell them you want fire hot! I order medium at other places and hot here... Good lunch price around $6-$7

I have yet to find a Thai restaurant that even comes close to them. They have a dish called "Intra Fried Rice" that is so delicious and no other Thai restaurant I have ever gone to makes a dish like it. It has cashews and pineapple in it, might sound odd, but couldn't be any closer to perfection if they... More

My wife and I went there for the first time yesterday. It was my wife's first time trying Thai food. We both loved Lai Thai!. It's cozy, and the food was awesome. Grilled chicken was exceptionally tender and juicy. And the flavors of their dishes have great taste, balance of flavors, and artistry. It was a very enjoyable experience.
