Out of lack of any alternatives on Staten Island, we took a plunge. Well, not bad. Even though Crispy Soft Shell Crab was not crispy, it was tasty. Spring Rolls reminded me of their relatives, the Chinese Spring Rolls, only much smaller. The classic Tom Kha Kai lacked spice and sourness, but... read more

While Staten Island boasts some great restaurants, her Thai food offerings were never too good. Forest Thai changes all that. I have eaten here a number of times, ordered a number of different dishes, and the place never disappoints. Prices are reasonable, the service generally good, and Forest Thai is definitely recommended.

If you have the hankering for Thai food on the North Shore of Staten Island, Forest Thai will be your best friend... the curries are complex and the meats and vegetables are fresh and flavorful. If you like your food "Thai hot," your server will not disappoint. Forest Thai is head and shoulders above the usual fare found at "Chinese... More

This is the BEST Thai food, I have ever had anywhere outside of Thailand--and I've eaten a lot, from a lot of places around the USA.Always fresh and clean tasting! And, the Thai iced coffee is a nice complement to your meal. Sumptuous ever-changing dinner specials provide taste delights you never imagined. Superb!

Forrest Thai has good food. One of the largest selections of vegetarian foods I've seen, including fake seafood. One of my favorite dishes is soy mango chicken. Meat eaters will not be disappointed either. Extensive menu. Service is good and honest. Once we wanted to order their fried bananas, which are delicious, but the server was honest that the bananas... More

Pad Thai is really good and they have crispy tofu which is a plus in my book. The prices are reasonable and the delivery is fast.

I have been a patron for 5 years and only ever had an issue with a dish being under spiced once. My family and I eat here at least twice a month.

I get food from Forest Thai at least once a month. The restaurant itself is small, about 10 tables, but I usually get takeout. The food is delicious, fresh, and they have a HUGE vegetarian selection. The staff is always friendly, they deliver, and they send coupons with your order...I love this place!
