“Give this Thai a Try”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2014

It's an old converted Friendly's restaurant. Dim lighting with booths and tables. BYOB! Big menu with a variety to select from. Friendly service.

“Stunning presentation combined with flavor”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2014

I will say I have not had Thai often, but I will need to go back here to try more! The array of dishes on the menu will give even the most picky of eaters a chance to try dishes that are not to foreign to them.

The flavor of the dishes was superb. We sampled at least a half dozen dishes, all of which had their own taste, spice, and presentation. They adorn each entree plate with an exquisite mural, so if you want to go for fancy dining without breaking the bank, and also have a savory meal at the same time this is the place to go.

“Attraction plating of food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2014

I was referred by a co-worker since I am new to the area. My husband and I took our daughter who was visiting from college "to try this restaurant". The parking lot was not crowded so we were leery of going in, but when the menu arrived, we were surprised by the wide selection. We all ordered different dishes, and we were all impressed by the artful presentation and preparation of our food. Satisfied with our entrées, we decided to also try the mango with coconut cream rice dessert, another artful presentation. Service was sufficient as it was not a busy night. We will definitely return!

“Great Thai food, nice menu, good prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2014

Tried this after my parents recommended it. Is in an old remodeled Friendly's in a tired part of South Allentown. We were sort of concerned that there was only one other table occupied, but that quickly disappeared when the food came. Had sizzling beef, crispy beef (excellent), yellow curry with shrimp (yummy) and Malaysian noodles (sort of like Pad Thai with squid and wider noodles). Pretty presentations, cooked just right, hot seasonings for extra spice brought to the table. The waitress was attentive and helpful. When we ordered their creme brulee from the dessert menu, she explained it was more of a frozen concoction, and not the typical type. She was correct. I would add that we have been to Thai Thai locations in Bethlehem and Emmaus and the food here is just as good, and a lot less expensive. We will be back!

“Always good! ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2014

The food was always good here and now it is kicked up a notch. We think they got a new chef. The food has something just a little extra that makes it even better. We will be coming more often now.
