Good food and convenient!

About 6 of us girlfriends had dinner at Khao Sarn - food was really good, freshly prepared and some were new to me for Thai Food. Staff is friendly and accommodating. It's a small place but worth a try and the great thing is it's easy to get to….Green line on T and you there ….metered parking all... read more

Khao Sarn has been around for years. I vaguely remember when this location was a Malaysian restaurant but Khao Sarn has survived the ages somehow. I was pleased to see a seasonal offering of fried softshell clams from Scituate, MA on the menu. We almost left because service was lackluster. The restaurant had three tables and was not close to...

I had a seafood dish and it was terrific. The spice was right and plenty of food. Service was adequate to good. Price was pretty expensive, but the atmosphere was also nice although I don't usually care to much for paying for other than clean, good food which was present. All three of these diners enjoyed the place.

My daughter and I were introduced to this wonderful Thai restaurant by a friend and we were not disappointed but very pleasantly surprised. The decor is lovely- it is a beautiful clean restaurant with high ceilings and nice white linen table clothes and lovely golden Thai ornaments. There is lots of space between tables and it was empty when we... More

I had a lovely dinner with a friend her on March 11th. The restaurant was not full (Wednesday night) and services was prompt and attentive. The food was fresh tasting and very well prepared. There are many great Thai restaurants within a few miles, but this is worth going out of the way for. The spring rolls with salmon and... More

Food is consistently excellent and service is very gracious. You mightnotnotice so e of the best dishes on the menu. Noodle tofu sounds boring but us a spectacular dish. Ingredients are fresh and excellent quality. Excellent value for any night of the week. Cozy enough for date night

Stopped in here for dinner with wife and toddler. I have generally found the restaurants (especially the smaller local places) to be excellent in the Brookline area. Unfortunately this was not the case here. First the good: 1) Service was friendly and polite. The not so good: 1) The pad thai was honestly among the worst I have ever eaten.... More
