My Favorite Thai place in Federal Way!

I LOVE Kwan Tip Thai! This is probably my favorite Thai place I've been to so far. I've heard about one other place in Kent I need to try but for now, this is my favorite Thai place. Thai Bistro is good but this place is great. Every single time, the food is amazing. I always get the phad... read more

Quite possibly the worst food I have ever had. Bbq chicken. Tough. Had to cut with a knife. Hard to chew no flavor.

We really enjoyed the food and the friendly service at Kwan Tip Thai. The Seven Flavor Beef was delicious, and not something we have had at Thai restaurants at home in NC. The Thai iced tea and iced coffee were sweet and refreshing. Our server (and owner of the restaurant) chatted with us about our travels (car road trip from... More

Another place I found thanks to Yelp. This place lived up to all the hype and am glad to have a great Thai place in Federal Way. You can tell they get a lot of Asians customers here as their 3 stars had quite a bit of kick. It was definitely spicier than other places' 3 stars. We ordered 1... More

We each ordered a menu selection to share with the other 7 at the table and each one was better than the previous! Our friends took us there, it is their favorite local restaurant and I understand why they show off this neighborhood gem! Will return as soon as possible.

We love Thai food and had been driving by this place for many months. It's on a busy road-if you're not on the lookout you'll go right by it. Slow down, stop and eat...you'll be glad you did! The interior is small but nicely decorated and the food is great. If you live in South King County or Pierce County,... More

Such great food and service. I love their tofu with spicy basil. Yum. Phad thai amazing as well. If you want a traditional thai meal and service, check this place out.

My spouse and I love Thai food. In the last two weeks, we have eaten in four Thai restaurants in four cities in the Seattle area. (I think we have over done this). Kwan Tip Thai is our new favorite Thai restaurant in Federal Way, and it is second only to Racha Noodles at South Center Mall in the Seattle... More

we go here at least once a week and food/service is always consistent and friendly. Take out is fast and reliable Tom A sounds to me like a made up post from a competitor who can't compete
