“Best Thai in the Mid-West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2011

I lived in Thailand for six years, 1998 to 2004, and loved the Thai food. This restaurant, The Thai House, is excellent! Their kitchen is able to cook true Thai food and NOT Americanized-Thai when requested (and ordered in Thai).

This is a quick trip from South St. Louis County. The food is GREAT. The staff is friendly. The prices are right. Give it a try when you are in the mood for something different or want to taste REAL Thai food.

“Fantastic food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2010

I was very pleasantly surprised to find this restaurant in tiny Columbia. And being from the west coast where Thai food is often excellent, I had very low expectations. However this is by far one of the best Thai restaurants I've ever visited. Their curry was excellent, the sauces wonderful and the service very friendly and efficient. Then the check came and I nearly fell out of my seat. Three of us ate a very good meal for under $40. Do take the time to stop here, you won't regret it.

“Outstanding Thai in Columbia, IL”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2009

Found this place by accident while dealing with the next door realtor. Great food at good prices. The food is cooked to order and fresh with plenty of taste. If you are looking for formal decor with lots of gilded fixtures, you may want to try somewhere else, but if you are looking for very good food, attentive staff, and good prices, you'll be very happy at Thai House. We are regulars now.
