“Decent Thai place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2012

Food here was fairly average Thai food - nothing to write home about. The imperial shrimp was not bad and had just about the right amount of heat. The Tom ka gai soup was ok but not as creamy coconutty as it could be and I did not taste any galangal in the soup, which made me feel that it wasnt as authentic as it could have been. The mango sticky rice dessert was quite good. Close to campus and want Thai food - it will do in a pinch.

“Great service, tasty food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2012

A group of us went to Thai House, a little concerned that the 8 of us would have to wait. Luckily, a group of tables had just been set up and we were seated immediately.

I would say the service was the best aspect of this place. Our waitress and other staff people were constantly checking in, giving water, and responding to our slow way of ordering drinks (i.e. one person ordered ginger tea, and when it arrived, another person decided to have ginger tea too; then, after tasting others' drinks, more people ordered ginger tea).

The food was tasty, although I felt my eggplant dish was on the small side and didn't have that much eggplant or tofu, but had lots of peppers and onions.

“Authentic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2012

Very authentic, I've tried their Padthai, Red, Yellow and Green Curry and they were all very rich and filling. Service was above average, I highly recommend this place!

“Great ambience, great Thai meal.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2011

We were in Berkeley for a short vacation. Walking down Telegraph, we saw that most restaurants were fast food or very casual. Thai House is fun, relaxed, great service. The patrons were mostly young and it was a very eclectic Berkely crowd. We had pad that, a cucumber salad, excellent ginger tea (which could have been served hotter) and a a great pumpkin curry with Thai brown rice.

“voted "best place to take parents"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 14, 2009

Just off Telegraph and Durant -- on Channing -- this is one of the better Thai restaurants I've been to in a long time. We had four memorable seafood-centered Thai-spiced dishes -- large shrimp, scallops, fish, mussels. Quite something. Very reasonably priced. Very helpful and friendly staff. "Worth a significant detour."
