“Crispy Duck to Die For”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 17, 2012

This little restaurant in a strip mall is a real gem. Nicely decorated with pleasant music, often soft jazz, in the background. Gentle and competent service. The menu is solid, with good variety. My favorite is Tamarind Duck. Crispy beyond comprehension, tasty, served with crunchy veggies. The sauce is wonderful. They often have a banana cake with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. The cake is fresh, moist, and warm...the way banana cake is supposed to be. The ice cream tastes home made...not overly sweet...creamy, and with a cherry on the top. My weakness is the cherry, sorry. I've eaten other dishes here and all are good, but if you like crispy duckling, this is the place.

“Quick Thai food and good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

My husband and I have eaten at Summit Thai a number of times.

The service here is good and the food comes out quickly. The pad thai is pretty good, so are the spring rolls and shrimp rolls, tom yum soup, maple street shrimp, drunken noodles and kee mai special. The heat level that comes standard on their hot dishes is very nice and not too overbearing.

If you aren't a big fan of curry do not have the chicken satay...it's curry city and since I am not a fan I stay away.

I usually enjoy a thai iced tea with my meals here. An aquired taste, but it grows on you after a few sips and then you're hooked.

Honestly, there isn't anything that makes Summit Thai stand out. It's neither the best nor the worst Thai that I've had...it's average and standard fare. However, the place is clean, the service is good and the food comes out very quickly if you don't want to spend hours eating out.

“The Best Thai Outside Thailand!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 26, 2012

This location of Summit Thai is by far the best I have been to anywhere outside of Thailand. The staff is all Thai. The menu is just perfect, all dishes are superb. The service is great. My favorite is the Penang Chicken, spiceness three and above!

“Unbeatable lunch values”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2012

Spicy, without setting your tongue completely on fire. Great lunch options: in the $10 range for a complete meal (excluding dessert). We'll be back for sure.
