Why Isn't This Place Packed?

Our family has eaten at the Ploi Thai restaurant several times over the past year, and we have yet to be disappointed. That said, I can't understand why this place is never packed, even on weekends. The menu is quite extensive, with the Drunken Noodle & Sweet Ginger Salmon entrees being our... read more

Thai food was not my favorite dinner choice however Ploi Thai has changed my mind! We have returned several times. It is a small quiet, intimate place, with an extensive menu and friendly attentive service! Being a Novice on my first trip our server gave me all the info I needed to order like a pro! Everything is fresh and... More

Great Thai food! They also have an entire vegetarian friendly menu which is a selling point to me. Highly recommend the curry options and the tom yum soup! Also they offer varying spice options for most of their entrees, and trust me ... The hot is HOT. :-)

Nick Belmonte of Spyglass Communications goes to Ploi Thai with his good buddy and fellow foodie Harvey Hirsch. This was a very tasty experience. The waitress was sweet, prompt and helpful. The owner “Randy” is also very helpful and sociable. One of the first things we had was an appetizer called curry puffs. I’ve had these little tasty delectable treats... More

I went there with my boyfriend for a dinner, just going there without any special occasion around 6 pm. No one was there so we could pick the table where we wanted to seat and the staff were very friendly. The atmosphere in this restaurant is charming, also it is very clean. Once we got the menu, we decided that... More

My boyfriend dined here because we had a Groupon. As soon as we had our first course consisting of lemongrass chicken soup, curry puffs, and salad we were already discussing coming back. For our entree we had Pra Ram Gai and Mussamun Curry. We were so pleased with our choices. The waitress helped us with our dessert choices and led... More

Hair in my food again, twice in a row -- I'm done. Food is good but once you find it in the middle of your rice, you wonder what you already consumed. The sugar free juices are good, $2.50 each. Hubby had the Ploi Noodles. I had my usual appetizer sampler as my meal. The custard for dessert is worth... More
