“Everything is Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Last weekend we took a group of friends to Courtside Thai--some of whom had never tried Thai food before. We ordered the house-special spring rolls and satay to start, both very tasty. The grilled shrimp and mango salad and Tom Ka Gai were also delicious. My husband and I ordered curries (one Panang and one yellow curry) and they were both very tasty. Our friends enjoyed the Gai Pad Pak and the ginger chicken very much as well, and decided that they were fans of Thai cuisine. This is my second time eating here, and I must say, the quality of everything we tasted was very good. Thai is our personal favorite cuisine, so we are pretty picky. But we will definitely be coming here more often!

“Consistently good. If you love spicy- this is the place.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 29, 2013

I almost always get Pad Thai and if you like it spicy, you'll be sweating by the time you're through. The staff is extremely responsive and caters to your specific orders.
Desserts are also a must here.

“Best since Bangkok”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

Outstanding meal of four appetizers, each one with authentic, different flavors. Best larb ever if you love cilantro. The whole rockfish at the neighboring table looked fantastic, and there was nothing left on the platter. How have we missed dining here in the six years it has been open? We'll be back soon and plan to eat in the herb garden.

“Service Was Great”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

Great service! the staff are VERY warm and welcoming. I am a HUGE thai food fan and feel that the food was acceptable but didn't wow me at all. I would gladly return, but i do feel that they are slightly overpriced for food that is just ok. To be fair, we only sampled two dishes so there may be some serious wow-factor yet to be discovered!

“GREAT lunch menu focus on seafood”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We were fortunate to visited at lunch and were treated to their opening of the outside dining area. Lovely pleasent day for a wonder selection of Catfish in red Curry sauce and shrimp and scallops. Meal came with a drink, two Thai spring rolls and lemon grass soup. The drinks were never ending as the coke, coffee and waters were refilled often. All for under 9 dollars. A great meal and my friend and I were treated like Thai royalty. Lunch menu changes ever week and focuses on what is in season. The patio area is quit unique. The grown there own special herbs that the use in the dishes and you sit along side the herb and flower garden water a peaceful fountain. In the another few weeks this places will just be gorgeous to take someone or yourself to experience excellent food in a beautiful setting. I must go back and try some of the very interesting dishes that are on the main menu.
