We have eaten here a lot over the years and the food is always tasty. I have been a critic of the service as being inconsistent but this visit was great! Everyone was at the top of their game for our visit. The food was very tasty and about as good as can be expected in Americanized Thai, all and... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find a Thai restaurant in this little town. Located in the heart of the downtown area, it was easy to find and had great parking. The prices were very good, and the food was some of the best we've had anywhere. Service was excellent and the tables were not crowded together. We'll be back again... More

this place is really good. The atmosphere is good, the food is good, the prices are a tiny bit high I think, but still, if you are in Bothell, jump in. The pad see ewe is a bit spicy even though we ordered 0 spice. (The only place I found better is Bai Tong in Redmond)...

Pen Thai is a hidden gem in Bothell for something different than seafood in the Northwest. Our party ordered the sizzling soft shell crab, garlic prawns, heavenly beef, and beef pad thai. Each dish was cooked to perfection. The service was excellent. We also had the mango sticky rice & black rice desserts, which were exceptional. Great place for lunch... More

I am so disappointed by this place. We have read so many wonderful reviews on here and, we were so excited to try this place out. Sadly we had an awful experience. This seems to be a common theme lately at Thai restaurants. I don't know if it's because we are gay or what, but the air seems very uncomfortable.... More

We lived in Bothell for 30 years and have moved to Arizona. Pen Thai was a regular night out for us. We really miss this place. We have not found as good of Thai near where we now are. If you are near here, this place is worth the stop for lunch or dinner.

I've enjoyed Pen's menu items and specials for several years. The service is always friendly and quick. I would recommend Pen to anyone looking for a relaxing lunch or dinner out.

Their Crispy Garlic Chicken is the best! I like almost everything I have had there. I really do not like their Pad Thai, it is ketchupy and no one I know likes it either. I really wish they would change their recipe. I think their cocktails are a little on the pricey side also.
