“Overall, just decent”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

I may have had a dish that's not their forte (red curry), but it was VERY spicy and had just decent flavor, nothing special. Service is good and pricing is fair, but the food leaves a bit to be desired.

“Had better Thai!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013 via mobile

Went in on a Wednesday night and was promptly seated. Nothing fancy. Kind of strange to have Adele and Coldplay played throughout the night. Food is pricey and not seasoned very well. Had the eggplant entree with pork it had a little red pepper next to the title which in other Thai restaurants it means spicy . Not here very bland. Tom Yum was devoid of lemongrass and no flavor except for the sprigs of cilantro. The server was friendly and helpful the salad was the best. Would not go back.

“Very Nice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2013

I went in and honestly could not make up my mind which entree to have. So based on input from my wonderful server I wound up getting Tom Yum soup, Yum Woon Sen salad Thai Dumplings and Calamari. Wonderful advice and wonderful food!

“Best Thai Food on the Peninsula!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2012

We have been to several Thai establishments on the Peninsula and have to say that Tida Thai is by far the best. They are not trying to be something for everyone, i.e.: Sushi/Chinese/Thai all in one. They are just serve kick-[--] Thai food! I have been to Thailand several times and have to say that I was impressed. The Papaya salad was spot on as was my wife's Tom Yum soup. This is a place that you must visit if you are on the Peninsula... A+++

“Wonderful Thai food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2012

Had lunch there. Split a order of dumplings, great flavors and a very good sauce. Had the green curry, and and a chicken and rice noodle dish. Had the curry medium hot, just enough heat to make your nose run, but not so hot you could not eat it. Great mix of flavors with a great green curry broth. The chicken rice noodle also were very good. Washed it down with a couple of Chang beers. Great place to eat.
