“The best Thai cuisine restaurant in town”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

The best Thai cuisine restaurant in town. I usually come here to enjoy the good taste, cozy and fabulous air. And their location are the small, very small alley but this is the most excellent street in Saigon. You should try!!!

“The best Thai food in Saigon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 28, 2012

I'm a fan of spicy Thai Food so I guess I have been at all Thai restaurants in saigon and Lac Thai offer the best Thai Food and cozy seating. However, staff should smile more sometimes they look so serious

“Splendid”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

This as well, is one of the better Thai places in Saigon. I was fortunate enough to eat here after a half day of shooting video with the crew. Love this place, as do my Vietnamese friends.

“great stop for a date night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

My boyfriend and I love this place. Off the beaten path and a good find. We always enjoy the apps and the main dishes. Can't go wrong with the sticky rice and mango either. They are also seen on Veitnammm.com

“Great Green Curry - Good Tom Kha Gai”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2012

I have lived in Vientam for several years now, and as far as Thai food, I am quite partial to both green curry disshes and Tom Kha Gai soup, so I usually order them at any of the Thai Restaurants I try -- Quiet excellent green curry chicken and very good Tom Kha Gai soup -- I was not a fan of the mild-curry crab dish that I read about in previous reviews. -- Overall, for good Thai food in HCM, would definitely suggest this establishment.
