“Vegetarian and vegan Thai”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012

don't be off put by the run down surroundings and dim decor - the food is fabulous. I order the Pa Nang and it is different than what we get in Canada (not as good in my opinion) but I have had many really good dishes there. It has been a favourite stop of ours over the last few years

“My Favorite Thai Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Excellant food in a small quirky restaurant. The service is very friendly. We are frequently the only non-Asians there. My favorite is the Mint Chili Chicken but the soups are also good. Try the cucumber salad for a nice refreshing and cooling dish. They spice it up to your taste and the ice water is refilled often.

“Great food, horrible service”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

If you like thai food, you will appreciate this place. slight twist on the favorite recipes, like the musaman beef. however, the service is ridiculously poor. our server never returned to fill our drinks. we requested the check 3 times. finally had to go to the counter and tell them if they wanted us to pay for our meal, they would need to bring us the bill or we were walking out. still had to wait at the counter. finally we were told that a bus boy was waiting our table and thats why the service was so bad. we were on a tight schedule and told them so when we were seated. there's a lot of great food in vegas...no reason to waste your time here when you can get both good food AND great service somewhere else.

“Worth the trip off the Strip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

Really above average Thai,they do not use paste, they grind their spices fresh every day and you can taste the difference. Fast and friendly service. A bit difficult to find even with gps but remember it is inside a strip mall so just drive around. Also good value. Next door are also Korean and Japanese places, did not try them.

“Just what we were looking for”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2012

Having been disappointed by Lotus of Siam (having gone upscale and noisy/crowded), we looked across the mall to Komol to the quieter alternative. We were very happy with our experience. We had much better and attentive service, and it seemed they just try a little harder. I had the Pineapple duck, my son had the chef's special (a dry curry), and my wife had the pad Thai. All were very good, and the portions were generous. We also ordered the Thai style fried rice, which our server warned us was a little different than what people expect (it's mixed with catsup). All were delicious! I think we've found our favorite Thai restaurant for our next visit.
