“excellent asian-fusion cuisine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

4 of us had a very casual and laid-back dinner at this small, intimate restaurant in the heart of Lake Worth, Florida. The standards are on the menu--won ton soup, but also many Thai creations, soups and appetizers and mains that are simply fantastic. The magic blend of crispy roasted duck, basil sauce and stir-fried vegetables is unique to Thai cusisine, and done well it is a thing to behold. A great aperitif list accompanies the food menu, with several sake choices, warm and cold, and several authentic, imported beers from Thailand, China and Japan. a great little spot!

“Disappointed”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

The reviews here are very good, so I was disappointed to report that my meal was just so-so. Loved the small dining atmosphere & decor. But the food was slow, (we were the only ones there), first the waitress asked about our drinks, then appetizers, then came back in 10 minutes to take our order. That was interupted by the phone ringing and a to-go order. The food came out 1 dish at a time. The service was slow and unattended. We had to ask for more water, even though the glasses were clearly low.
I had peanut chicken, wife had 3-brothers curry, and my dad had seasame seared tuna. The tuna was reported to be very good, the curry so-so, and the peanut chicken, on the dry side and peanut sauce nothing special.
I also thought it was on the expensive side, anything with seafood was minimum $24.
Sorry, I've eaten alot of thai and this ranks low.

“Fresh and light”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2012

We often go to Safire for lunch, which is consistantly good and moderately priced. The owner/server knows what we will order and how it should be made. I had dinner there with friends from Canada and the menu was interesting, my guests were impressed with the quality of the food and service. Love anything with curry!

“Exquisite and Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 9, 2012

We live in NY and have had a place in Palm Beach for over 20 years. We eat out everyday when in FL and have tried many eating places in the area. We're well familiar with Asian restaurants as some of the best are in NY and Safire is equal to the best we've been to in NY. Last night, we had a dish with Panang curry sauce which was so outstanding that we added the sauce to the pad thai we had also ordered. The other items which we've ordered over the past few years have all been exceptional. The service is excellent as well as being friendly. We're returning home today and are looking forward to our next trip which will always include dinner at Safire.

“Absolutely amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2012

We were on a visit down in Florida on a road trip, and a friend recommended this restaurant. We never wanted to leave! The food selection is great, and no matter what you have, everything is too delicious! The service is great and friendly, so while the atmosphere caters to any occasion (a date, family outing, or business meeting) you still feel very comfortable. We've already gone a few times, always trying to make sure that when we travel down to Florida, we make the time to eat here!!
