Great local joint

Seems to be off the tourist path, which is good. Food was delicious. We ordered 4 items, all as good as any Thai food I've had before and large portions. Comments about waitress not coming back to check on you, get drink refills, etc, are accurate, but wasn't a problem for us. Atmosphere is cozy... read more

We always get Saeng's to go and bring it home, it's some of my family's favorite Thai food! The Chicken Pad Thai is so good! The staff is friendly over the phone and when we go in to pick it up... Also, the order is always correct. Check them out!

I've had pad thai from restaurants all over the US and even in Europe. It's become a mainstream standard dish and is usually a safe bet anywhere. Unfortunately, the pad thai here was incredibly vinegary and ultimately inedible. After I long day of sightseeing, I was very tired so I just ordered the pad thai to-go and brought it back... More

Excellent Thai food. Service is a little slow as if they have a small kitchen, but the food is excellent. Prices are reasonable and recommend this restaurant to anyone who seeks Thai food on the island.

We ordered the garlic fish and chicken and shrimp Phad Thai. Both dishes were very very good but not on the large side. The sauce on the garlic fish was wow! Service was on the slow side but very friendly. They seem to only have one waiter. Seating area is very quaint and comfortable. Enjoyed the setting.

Saeng's has been one of my local favorites sine I discovered it 9 years ago. The atmosphere is excellent, and the food usually very good. But last night the chief was off. My favorite Masaman Curry tasted and looked watered down and my friends we not totally happy with their meals either. I hope that this is not a new... More

Been coming to Saeng's for years! Great Thai food at affordable prices! They are friendly and have a nice inner courtyard seating. Togo is no problem as well!

I spend quite a bit of time in Thailand and love the food. I also like to sample 'Thai' restaurants in different parts of the world and give my personal assessment of how well they're pulling it off. Sometimes not quite pulling it off isn't the restaurant's fault, since sourcing the proper ingredients can be problematic in some locations. Happily,... More

We've been going to Saeng's Thai irregularly for about 15 years and have always had good food and service. Tonight we happened to meet mainland friends there at about the same time as the pre-Iao Theater crowd so all of the tables filled up at once. They went from dead to super busy in just a few minutes so it... More
