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

I eat here as often as I can - everything is good and fresh and is prepared quickly. And the value is excellent/big portions.

Rod Dee offers super-tasty Thai food. Alas, it's no longer reasonably priced like it was when we'd visit the Rod Dee in the Fenway in from 2001-2006 -- quite expensive. But very worth a visit nonetheless!

I'm no Thai expert but loved the Pad Thai - ordered extra spicy with chicken. Note: cash only! Menu selection is huge, excited to go back

This place has unbelievable food for an unbelievable price. I got the red curry with chicken and it was only 7.40 and lasted and I had enough leftovers for a second meal. Although the curry was delicious, the only thing keeping me from giving this an excellent review is the fact that it perhaps had too much rice. Personally I... More

Service : Waitress was efficient, bill delivered quickly and she was not bothersome, she was just friendly and polite. Food : The rice paper rolls were really good with the peanut sauce and the crab... More

Have been to this Rod Dee several times, each time a little worse. Do Not Get: Steamed Beef and Beef Tendon Soup on Rice! Better but still now good was BBQ Pork Thai Style with Sticky Rice. Will not go back again.....

This storefront Thai restaurant serves food that is redolent of Thai street food. Stick to the Thai dishes rather than Americanized versions and you'll do very well. Tom Yum noodles is a good example.

My favorite place for Thai, though it's decidedly non-fancy. It's worth going in to check out the specials board, because everything there is fantastic. The Imperial Tofu is my favorite-- gingery, savory, and just different from the normal Thai fare you see elsewhere.

We eat here at least once a month. Our local Thai take out. Nothing spectacular, just good local Thai food. They do a very healthy business.
