Thai Rak Thai restaurant was opened in 2006. It is located on Adams Avenue, downtown of Scranton. The restaurant is made up of two dining rooms which serve approximately 120 customers. The interior is decorated with some unique artworks from Thailand. As you dine in, the Asian style interior design, foods and Thai music will give you a warm and comfortable atmosphere, perfect for chatters, family gathering, and even business meals. We serve original and fusion Thai foods which include vegetarian, vegan, seafood, poultry and meat, choice of noodles and rice, which are seasoned with Thai spice and herbs.

For beverages, we offer drinks that are originally served in Thailand such as Thai tea, coffee, coconut juice, etc.

Besides, our restaurant is BYOB which allows customers to bring their own choice of alcohol beverages without extra charge for opening the bottle and chilling. We also reserve tables for customers who plan to have celebration on special occasions. Nonetheless, we have our special way of dedicating birthday songs which will definitely give you a surprise!

We would like to thank all customers who given us the chance to serve you. We will maintain the quality of food and provide our best service to all customers. We will not stop improving in order to deliver what is best for you. We hope that all of you will return to the restaurant in the future and give us the chance to serve you again.

Great food and staff

When I'm craving Thai, this is always my restaurant of choice in Scranton. The food is great and the staff is very friendly. Been here over 10 times to sit-down, have ordered take out a lot and will continue to visit!

Food is good. If you eat in, the waitstaff and other help stares at you. Very uncomfortable in a small blue room. They close promptly at 9:00 so if you show after 8:30 be prepared for a stressful dinner.

Not what I was expecting with all the good reviews. I eat at Formosa in Clarks summit all the time. That trend will continue. I didn't like their pad thai at all very oily. The thai wings were mediocre. I did like the dumplings but they were a small part of the meal. I've been to Thailand and know thai... More

We have been here numerous times. We love their duck dishes. Hubby orders hot and loves their great taste and heat. The place is quaint and the service is very good.

I am Thai food obsessed! I eat it all over the country, so I have alot of past experiences. The food was excellent and served quickly with very fresh tastes. The soup was hot and tasty, but the cup was small for 5.00. My husband ordered veggie Pad Thai, which looked more like a side order and small at 12.95.... More

Really enjoyed our meals here. Very nice staff, fun environment, very good food that tasted like it was made from fresh ingredients. They did an excellent job catering to my gluten intolerance and tomato allergies which is always to be commended. The only issue was that our table bounced a lot every time someone walked by - very annoying. It... More

The Thai food here is excellent. The outside of the building looks like it's been abandoned but I encourage you to go in if you're looking for some really good and authentic Thai food. Reasonable prices, nice ambience inside.
