“Very Fine Thai Food-But Very Dry and Small Portions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

I have had lunch three times at Gao Thai in Ramsey, and found that while what I ordered-chicken or shrimp with basil, chili sauce and vegetables-was very good, it was very dry, with too little sauce. I also felt the portions were too small and could have been larger, given the price. I realized I have to ask for it "extra juicy" from now on. I'm sure I will go back to Gao Thai, as it has been a good dining experience, except for that one point.

“Finally Good Thai in Ramsey- Gao Thai Kitchen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2011

Ramsey is turning out to be quite the restaurant hot spot. Gao is a great B.Y.O.B thai restaurant. This location has had several owners but Gao takes the cake. Located right on main street with a very nice interior with dim lighting. You can tell its a good place because even the take out is flying out the door. You have to try the short ribs, calamari and spring rolls for an app. So good!!! You can even get the short ribs as a dinner if you want- worth it. The shrimp clay pot is so flavorful. Fantastic noodle and rice dishes. You can get your meal not so spicey or all the way turned up-its up to you. The entire staff is there to help you. No "its not my staion remarks" when you need something. We been there many times and always enjoyed our meal. This is not the place you are going to take leftovers home-just enough! But you get what you pay for. Quality food and a good price with the B.Y.O.B savings.
