Great for the traveler

Emerald Thai Cuisine delivered a complete dinner to our hotel. Large quantities, very good quality. Highly recommend if you are at a Sea-Tac hotel and don't want to go out.

I ordered from them from an airport hotel. The delivery was quick. They included all silverware And plates that I needed. The food was delicious. I ordered curry, fresh spring rolls and salad. I would recommend them all. Will definitely be visiting again when in Seattle.

Better than Bangkok. Very nice owners and the food was exceptional. Portions very large, prices reasonable. The owner is a Thai boxer! Very interesting fellow. Overall nice food and experience.

A friend visiting from Thailand gave this a thumps up! And she is quite critical of US Thai restaurants. I find their food consistently tasty and their service sweet. It is a family establishment and seems eager to please. I like to sit at the table by their front window and sip my tea while I watch life go by... More

Went there with a group and ordered family style so we could all sample different things. We ordered the appetizer platter, orange chicken, phad thai and coconut curry shrimp. The appetizer came with gyza, satay chicken, cream cheese wonton, a roll of some sort and a unidentified fish patty. That fish thing was different. All the entrees were fine, not... More

I'll start off by saying I don't usually eat Thai, that said, the food was very tasty and well worth the price paid, which was average for dinner meal. English is the proprietors second language, which makes it a little difficult but more authentic.

Owner operated, not a chain (although I believe another family member also has a restaurant Emerald Thai II somewhere near). Food is excellent, service is friendly and prompt. They are gracious about special orders and the price is reasonable. I loved the cashew chicken

I stopped in and tried the Tom Kah Gai soup it was very good and presented nicely. The owner was very friendly he saw that I was a Seahawk fan and talked to me about how good they are looking. I enjoyed my soup just wish it had more than one type of mushroom in it but it did have... More

Don't expect to get 10% when mentioning their website. It's a gimmick. We did that and the owner said: "But you didn't call me first." His logic was beyond us. Not much service overall during our 2 hour dining. There was only 1 other table with 2 other people while we were there. We were there for dinner in mid-November... More
