I was in Thailand for three weeks in in 2013 and ate totally local. In that time i developed a real feel for true Thai food. I have to say that Thai Rak Thai is as real as you can get without being in Thailand (which may not be a bad long term plan! LOL). The people are friendly, courteous,... More

I had to meet up with my daughter and her boyfriend which Scranton was halfway for both if us. I read the ratings on this so we decided to try it. Everyone was happy with their meals. The service was very good. The prices were reasonable. We love Thai food.i

Great find for Thai food in a mid-size city. Went on reviews in TripAdvisor, set the GPS and had a great meal. Great food, wonderful wait staff and prices that cannot be beat! We enjoyed the Massaman Curry (beef) and Drunken Noodles (chicken) and supremely enjoyed both. Don't miss it if you are in Scranton. Try the Thai Tea.

The lunch menu is easy to navigate. Pick your vegetable meal with rice or noodles and then add your choice of meat or seafood. The tables are linen covered and the staff attentive, helpful and willing to accommodate special requests and questions. Add to that the bubble tea and this was a favorite Bubble tea is basically large black tapioca,... More

Great place for just to stop by for nice lunch to a nice evening dinner. The food comes out fresh and nice presentation. Plan on coming back to try out many dishes on the menu. Can't go wrong here.

Delicious Thai food served by a gracious staff who seem genuinely delighted to see you. If somebody is celebrating a birthday, please let them know ahead of time so you can enjoy a Thai rendition of Happy Birthday! More good news--it's BYOB, making the dining experience even more affordable.

I lived in Seattle for 6 years and became quite spoiled with the quality and selection if Thai restaurants in the area. Since being back east in PA for the past 6 years, it has been very hard to find. While visiting the Poconos area we came across this little place and decided to give it a try. We were... More

The drunken noodles were lacking spice of any kind, but the green curry that I ordered was excellent, spicy and a generous portion.
