Great atmosphere

I liked the atmosphere and the staff of the restaurant. The food was ok, I had better Thai food before. We had Pad Thai and Red Curry Chicken there.

Ever wondered what prison food in Thailand tastes like? Now is your chance to find out, prepare for the horror of Thai prison food. What a waste of money, this place takes advantage of being the only spot on mercer island. Paying good money for bad food is unforgivable, I don't pay to suffer and can't stand throwing food to...

I am always surprised that this restaurant is near-empty for dinner when we visit. The food is flavorful - I think many comparable dishes beat those at nearby Pon Proem, but are a little pricier, so not our option for take-out. Nicer decor. While the food uses the traditional five star spice scale, they'll spice up to "20 stars" if... More

Ordered a tofu pad Thai from this place with two star spice. Well something more tasteless I've yet to eat. Dry, with no discernable flavour, let alone a two star spice, and no peanuts or lime. Just lots of bitter Mung bean sprouts. Did not finish this meal. A waste of money.

Their location is perfect so they have been my go to place when I want take out. I have been disappointed the last few times. Most recently, I ordered Yellow Curry and Pad Kee Mao w beef. The curry included potatoes that were overcooked and tasted like they were left over from something else and just thrown into the curry.... More

Easy location right off the freeway and great options for lunch. My son and I stopped by and really enjoyed everything we ordered. Tom Ka Gai (coconut chicken lemongrass soup) was excellent. I would definitely recommend Anise!

We have gone to Anise three times for lunch. The lunch combo is a real deal with a cup of soup, spring roll and a choice of excellent entrees with the typical star rating....a three closer to a two. Service and ambience are very good. Recommend!

Love love love their red curry lunch special and their tom yum Gai soup! The red curry is nice and thick (hate it when it feels watered down) with lots of chicken, bamboo shoots, and peppers. We live in Bellevue and make the trek over to MI for their food (we tried about 6 Thai restaurants near us and their... More

We moved to Mercer Island a few months ago and have been to Anise Thai 3-4 times. We've gotten consistently good food and good service. Pad Thai, Thai fried rice, and Basil Chicken are favorites. One of the better restaurants on MI.
