We've tried this place 3 times - we are done. Food is simply uninspiring. Appetizers and entrees were all blah. One dish we even sent back, and we never do that. I wish it was better as it is so convenient, but there's just so many better options within 10 mins of this location.

I'm not a regular at Thai restaurants as I think most of them are cooking to a standard menu selection that becomes boring. Kob Kun dares to chart it's own path and does it very well. I have eaten there several times now and find it intersting and rewarding to explore the menu. Some sre good, others are exquisite.

Ate here with my wife and 20 year old daughter. I had Seafood Panang Curry, my wife had Southern Style Curry and my daughter had Seafood Pad Thai. Pros: We all loved our meals Service was attentive and friendly Meals are generous Atmosphere is very comfortable Cons: I ate too much! We will be back!

Cut above the rest for Thai food. Wonderful, friendly atmosphere. Complimentary fried green beans for an appetizer. Three of us shared 3 entrees (and appetizer of spring rolls) and there was enough food for 2 people to take home for dinner the next night - no alcohol ordered and price with tip was only $48. So fresh and delish! Many... More

The service was average. The waitress got extra order and somewhat blame us for that. Tofu dish was free but was tasteless. Main dish wasn't seasoning well. The decor was nice but poor lighting. Just convinienve location.

Last time I came to Kob Kun - they ignored my request for properly spicy food. They were nice enough so I figured it's worth trying again. On this visit I made sure to order Som Tam and ask for it to be made spicy. Waitress confirmed "Thai spicy" to which I emphatically agreed. Encouraged, I awaited my food. Well,... More

I order take-out from Kob Kun just about every weekend, and it is always excellent. My favorites are Pad See Ew, Drunken Noodles (both w/soft tofu), Peppercorn Softshell Crab, Yum Pla Grob, and Pad Ped Talay. Also love the Sweet Corn Cakes appetizer.

We check TA regularly to see which restaurants excel in our town. As a result, we wanted to dine at Kob Kun for awhile. We were happy we did. The spring roll, satay and sea food pad thi were all excellent. In fact the choices were better than the other Thi dinner spots in our area. Bill B.

You'll find things a little different from the typical Thai that you find on most menus around here. The cooking is good and inventive. I like it for a change from the usual.
