While walking around Albuquerque, we spotted this Thai restaurant that we had been to before. Last time it was fabulous, this time too! It was delicious! My husband had their chicken in garlic sauce, stir fried with tons of garlic mushrooms and black pepper. He loved it and ate every bite. I had their Pad won Sen, chicken stir fried... More

This Thai/Asia/Fusion restaurant opened only a short time before we went there for dinner with friends. I doubt we will be back too soon, but this one is not out of the running yet. I plan to give it more time to mature and improve.

This place has changed ownership/management/names several times in the last few months. So, no criticism to Thai Crystal, but to Thay Suwei (or whatever it's called now). My co-workers and I went on our "lunch minute". We work downtown, but normally don't have a problem walking somewhere for lunch and getting back to work on time. First of all, there... More

The good side of this place is that it seems to be a family business. It is very clean with bathrooms that are exceptionally clean. The service was excellent too. However, we felt the food was just average. Spring rolls were too doughy, the Pad Thai was way too spicey and most of the other dishes were just so-so. The... More

First off, it's hard to find spice like I'm accustomed to here in Albuquerque anywhere, so if I want hot food Thai is an easy go to. I am well traveled. Whenever I'm away from home I usually have Thai at least once, especially if there is an Asian influence in the city. Thai Crystal is hands down THE BEST... More

We were invited here by my sister who had bought a voucher at costco worth 100USD.When our bill came the waitress simply said,we can't take that! What? The waitress said, the mangement changed hands and the new owner doesn't agree to the terms of the voucher. We thought that was pretty outrageous and that they might consider mentioning this to...

Having eaten Thai food in numerous cities across the US and England, I was surprised about a few things here. First, my friend ordered the red curry & it had a strange brown color to it unlike I'd ever seen before. The flavor was good, just the color through me off a bit. I ordered Tom Kai soup, which was...

This is a wonderful Thai restaurant located near the movie cinema in downtown and across from the Improv theatre. The place is large, the decor modern and pleasing, the service is excellent and attentive and the food....great! I've eaten here a few times and highly recommend the beef salad (spicy!), the Pad Thai with chicken, and the spicy citrus soups.... More

Thai Crystal is my favorite Thai restaurant. I usually order the Pineapple Shrimp Curry and am never disappointed! I order mine medium- hot and always enjoy the sweet/ spicy coconut sauce with plentiful shrimp and pineapple over steamed rice. The Thai Iced Coffee is delicious and shouldn't be missed. SG
