The food was pretty good but the portion size on the lunch menu was very small and it was still $10. I'm talking very small portion. Too bad, it could be really good.

We shared two appetizers: Roti Canai, which is a pancake with chick peas for $3.50 and three Thai Croquets for $8. Portions were generous for appetizers and really very good tasting. Then we had one Seafood Pad Thai each for $13. Portions were large. How anyone can complain about high prices is beyond me; those prices are very reasonable. The... More

I love the food at this restaurant but each time I go the portions have gone progressively smaller! What is going on? It's not like you are not making money- the place is very popular so why be so mean in your portions. Looking for another Thai joint! Very disappointing.

My wife loves Thai food so we decided to try this place. The food was ok a little low of the flavor aspect but was OK 3.5/5 for Food The decor was great, nice lighting comfortable seating not too crowded so 4.5/5 for that. The biggest complaint I had was they automatically included 15% gratuity. I hate when places do... More

At this restaurat many of the staff will tell you that nearly everything on the menu is gluten free - It is NOT! None of the satay sauces or curry sauces, green, red, panang etc. are gluten free as they contain soy sauce. I was informed by a meember of staff who had worked in the kitchen that nearly all...

Good food, very small portions and expensive. There aren't any other Thai restaurants in the area. Know what you are getting. Service is not very friendly, the front of the house staff always looks angry.

I went there for lunch with some co-workers. The express lunch price is good at $9 and $1 additional for meat. You get a spicy broth soup with it. The ripoff is with the drinks. We got the bill and were charged $4 per unsweetened iced tea! Really? Water, ice and teabag???? And since the service is poor, nobody ever... More

New Jersey does not have many Thai places that are worth going to over a period of months and years. Thankfully, there is Rhong Tiam, which continues to delight, even after undergoing new management. The food is authentic, and they even prepare some dishes that are expensive to carry on the menu, and therefore available in few other Thai places.

One of the most basic services is to provide a receipt. Even though the food is wonderful, I can't return because they flatly refuse to separate the check so that me and my business partners can report expenses properly.
