Memorable Authentic Thai Foods

I always love to come back again after few years to this restaurant. Their foods remain the same as good as I used to ate before. Their steamed chicken with Garlic Rice and Crispy Spicy Pork with Sticky Rice are good. Good to try this restaurant folks. Enjoy Good Thai Food here.

I was visiting my daughter and son-in-law in Cambridge and after a long day shopping on a rainy day in Boston we decided just to stop at their favorite Thai Restaurant, Rod Dee's, and bring it home to eat. What a wonderful idea this was. I had Chicken Pad thai and my daughter had Pad See You Beef. We shared... More

Best Thai food I have ever tried. Visit a few times, tried different menus, they are all good. Friendly service. Very recommended. For sure I will come back next time I visit Boston.

Started from very little take out food, this eatery has grown big. Their food is authentic and delicious. Always like their indonesian fried rice with crispy chicken, the pad thai, pad see u, komudang and the soft shell crab is also not bad. Very reasonable price food but its very very good.

Rod Dee's is absolutely one of the best places to eat in the Boston area. You have to have cash but it is definitely worth the trip to the ATM. I used to eat here several times a week and since I've moved out of state, it's one of the things I miss most. The chicken and shrimp pad thai... More

I've been eating at Rod Dee for over 17 years and I have yet to find another Thai restaurant that serves food this quick and this delicious. Though it may come under the definition of "fast food" I find their dishes to be as good or better than more upscale restaurants. My favorite is the Indonesian fried rice, Massaman Curry... More

Based on TA reviews, we ate dinner one night on the same little block where we were staying (an Airbnb score!) The man at the register all but rolled his eyes at us! We were figuring out what we wanted and he was so rude. But, the food was good, so we returned another day for lunch (he wasn't there).... More

This is a great place to visit when you just want a quick meal. The service is quick and no, they don't make an effort to smile or engage with you in any way, but the price reflect this so adjust your expectations accordingly. I wouldn't call this a restaurant. It's about as personable as a fast food joint. You... More

We went as a party of four and ordered several dishes. When the lady brought new food to our crowded table I tried to hand her our finished plates to make room for the new dishes. She refused to take them stating it's a self service restaurant. My guests and I were shocked at how rude she was. It's a... More
