A Thai favorite

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.

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.

My first time here and there was a short wait for lunch. I am not too familiar with Thai food but the menu was very specific and I was able to make a great choice. I ordered the Farmers Market Delight with shrimp which came with wok fried vegetables and light garlic sauce. I am not a fan of spicy... More

I have had the food here a couple of times because it is good but not quite worth the cost. It is close and convenient but that still does not justify the expense.

Beautifully decorated Thai restaurant. Lunch menu is quite extensive but the lard page express lunch service is easy to order and extremely fast service. Food is right size for lunch with free vege soup. The bill includes tips so payment is fast and smile. Busy place.

Great food and beautiful atmosphere! Try the Pad Thai! They can make everything less or more spicy. No delivery but pick up is quick.

This is the best Thai restaurant that I am aware of in the Princeton area. Since the restaurant doesn't serve wine, our waitress suggested buying a bottle at a store in the same mall. The food and service were both great and reasonably priced compared to other restaurants in the area.

Ordered take out after craving Thai food. Ordered the thai basil fried rice and of course the thai ice tea and mango sticky rice for dessert. The Food was just the right amount of spicy and it totally hit the spot! Would definitely recommend this place. Great food and easy to order online as well!
