consistently good

Good basic thai. Nice staff. Could use a little more excitement in the decor, but otherwise an old favorite on thames.

I order take-out from here often. Usually very prompt, sometimes a delay if on a busy weekend. They offer military discount, which is great. Food is very good although sometimes inconsistent. My pad thai tastes/looks a little different every time I get it, although it still tastes good. Prices are a little high but not unreasonable.

Start with asking Siri, navigate to the nearest Thai food restaurant. Do that if you like the mystery of a surprise. This time it was a delightful surprise, Siri took a deep into a congested area of Newport Beach but landed us at this wonderful little spot right off the main street. We started with golden bags which I've had... More

I had pad Thai and my friend had a broth based dish. Both were good, I asked for very hot and spicy (the second highest spice level) and it was one of the hottest things I have ever eaten. Being a fan of spicy food, I would highly recommend this place because they are willing to adjust the spice level... More

went there for dinner during our stay, as were craving spicy Thai food. It is a bit different from the stuffy restaurants on or near the main strip. It is more like your neighborhood Thai place, nothing fancy as to the appearance. The place was very busy, even though we went during the "off" season. As we walked, in we... More

I wasn't sure what to expect of a Thai restaurant in Newport, which has more than enough chowder houses and seafood. But, Thai cusine is excellent authentic Thai food. Delicious !

I called my order in for pick up at Thai Cuisine. The girl wrote up everything correctly on the slip. Unfortunately, one of the entrees did not get chicken as it was ordered and paid for. So, I had to return for a replacement order. Honestly, the food was quite good. Everyone else said their meals were just fine and... More
