“Hidden Gem for Thai Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2012

We've been eating at this restaurant since they opened. We have tried many of the other Thai restaurants in San Antonio including Tong's, Mon's, Thai Dee, Thai Pikul, Sarika's, and I'm sure I'm missing a few. Bottom line: Thai Topaz remains our favorite and we continue to eat there a couple of times each week. The food is authentic, fresh, and never heavy. We have even compared Thai Topaz to some of the top Thai restaurants throughout the U.S. (Boston, Chicago, New Orleans, Phoenix/Scottsdale...and more), and we still agree that Thai Topaz is our favorite. Many Thai restaurants may have fancier dining areas, but the bottom line is the food that is served and that's where Thai Topaz wins hands down. What items do we recommend: Starters: Thai Salad and Tom Yum soup. Entrees: Mango Delight, Chicken and Broccoli with Peanut Sauce, Red or Green Curry, Pineapple Fried Rice, Panang with Chicken. Drinks: Thai Tea.

“Best Thai food in Texas!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2012 via mobile

This is a small family place with incredible food. Don't expect quick service because there is one waitress (the owner) for the whole restaurant but the food is worth the short wait! We had the best Pad Thai we had ever tried here and we eat lots of Thai food! The shrimp summer rolls were delicious and you should definitely treat yourself to their homemade coconut ice cream for dessert! It's a BYOB place so you can bring your own wine and avoid paying "restaurant prices" for alcohol. Try Thai Topaz! You'll love it!

“Excellent Thai Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 23, 2011 via mobile

I love this place! The pad Thai here is very good and has an interesting non-peanut flavor. It really is a hidden gym. Poppivich comes here, so you should too!

“Amazing Thai Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 22, 2011

Great food, friendly proprietors and quick service - we love it!

Even though there's no kid's menu, my kids love the Beef Lard Nar and Spring Rolls. I love any place where they willingly eat lots of veggies! The Pad Thai is the best in town and the coconut ice cream is definitely worth a try!
