“Delicious & authentic Thai food.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

This is a real jewel in the White Mountains. We are Thai food aficionados and have brought many of our friends to this authentic Thai restaurant. Everyone agrees that the service and food are outstanding. We highly recommend Thai Promise.

“worth the wait.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

We were forewarned that the service is slow - very slow. However, our grandkids would agree it was worth the wait. Our 13 yr old said it was the best sesame chicken he had ever had. Order the water and it is served from a pitcher with fresh fruit in it so you get a nice refreshing drink. The crab puffs were a fun appetizer. The booths are small and will accommodate 4 comfortably.

“Maybe not again...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

Came in mid afternoon for lunch. This building is old but they have done a nice job of decorating except for the Buddhist alter shrine. I'm not comfortable eating in front of this. The food was very good but took a long time to be served like about 1/2 hour. Service was good but only about four tables being served.

“Good food and lots of it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

We stopped here for lunch after reading the good reviews on Tripadvisor. We both had the vegetables and tofu in a chili sauce. It was nicely spicy, but the sauce was a bit heavy for us. And the portions were huge - we should have split one serving. Next time I would order the vegetables and tofu in the ginger sauce, and ask to have it medium hot - hopefully that would be a lighter choice (we skipped dinner that night since we were still full). The menu is large, and there are lots of interesting choices. We just chose the wrong thing.

“Bad service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

One waiter, one cook, busy Fathers Day equals disaster. My dish was extremely salty. Asked for an adjustment at check out and was told impossible. Asked to speak with owner and told they had a place in Payson. Called and they said no affiliation. People were walking out and our waiter didn't have a chance of servicing anyone. Tables got their food one patron at a time and waited awhile in between. We won't recommend to anyone.
