At Khao Sarn, we know Thai Food. Our Chef and owners are Thai and our food is authentically Thai. Made from the freshest ingredients available, our food is simply what we are known for. Our menu is extensive and we offer dishes from all over Thailand. Our mixologists have a plethora of knowledge on wine and cocktails. Some of our specialties include the classic Lychee Martini, Rose Essence Mojito, and a myriad of fruity creations like the velvety Frozen Mango Cabana.

Gracious and delicious dining

Our family ate here on Christmas eve. And my most vivid impression is the graciousness of the staff as they served us in their inviting dining area. Yes -- and the food was quite good as well! Everything tasty. I'm no expert on Thai food, though we eat it quite a bit, and this seemed excellent... read more

I recognize that this review is based on only my first impressions but for me that is key. I plan on going back this stay already! I was trying to find a Thai restaurant fairly close to my hotel - discovered this location was quite a bit of a walk from my hotel but it was worth it. The staff... More

We were a party of 8, and so we sampled many dishes. All were good. I can't say any were novel or inspired, but all were fresh, delicately spiced, and well balanced.

I've been there a couple of times. The last one was so good, I decided to write a review. The duck was perfect. Even my husband liked the sea bass, and he is very picky when it's come to cooking the fish. They were very patient with my 17m old son because he was throwing the food down or running... 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
