Enjoyable

Great selection of foods. Tom Kha soup flavorful. Thai iced tea was amazing, as is typical for this drink. Soft shell crab curry was good, but the flavours were to individual; not melded. Others in our party rated their dishes favorably, but not extraordinary.

I live in the area, and Thai Cottage is one of my favorite restaurants to eat at. I've been to Thailand, and I can say that the Thai food at Thai Cottage is consistently delicious, as well as, authentic. I enjoy their red curry and their pineapple curry at medium heat...

We eat here a lot because the quality of the food is always good at a reasonable price. Great, friendly service. Would highly recommend.

The service was very good, my waitress was pleasant and efficient. The menu was extensive and had lunch specials. I just wondered why fried tofu was added to so many dishes. I suppose this is the protein we need to eat.????I requested no tofu in my meal and the waitress honored my request with a smile. This place seats in... More

This restaurant failed at all most every level on my visit. The food was awful and the service was even worse. I can't believe this place has so many good reviews. Either the people of Corpus have no clue what Thai food is supposed to taste like or the real chef was sick on the day we visited and they... More

Went here closer to closing time and I was only one of two tables on a Tuesday night so service was top notch! Apps and most food was very reasonably priced. Fish cake apps were very good but I could have spiced them up a lot more for some more flavor. I think what I ordered was Mau Daong or... More

I love this place, good food and service. I usually get the veggie Tom Yum and the soft veggie spring rolls, I have liked everything I have ever had there. Not fancy at all but consistently good food.

Very good Thai. We both had Pad Thai and enjoyed it very much. My only complaint was with the vegetable soup we ordered to eat before the Pad Thai. Only vegetable was mushrooms which was fine with me but not my husband. By the time we got it our dinner was right behind it on the table. Great flavor though.

We always look for a healthy restaurant. We found the food to be excellent. the service was very good. The noise level was a little high, in the main room. Sitting outdoors was perfect. We had to come back two nights in a row. Food was not just good, healthy food; it was also very tasty, especially for healthy eaters,... More

Small establishment just off SPID. Good selection and pricing. A number of Asian patrons were there, which usually indicates a good restaurant.
