“tasty and friendly service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2013

The food was solidly good and savory but the pad thai was a tad on the sweet side. The serving size is fairly big and we had plenty to eat w/ 3 dishes among the 4 of us (w/ 2 servings of rice- one serving came w/ the curry but they didn't charge for the extra portion). The salad dish was delicious, the pad thai was good, the curry looked and sounded good but it strangely didn't have much taste. The rice wasn't jasmine either so it also didn't have much taste. The price is about 1/4 more than I pay on mainland but that's probably the cost of doing business on the island. Worth the visit.

“They were one of the few restaurants open on Sunday evening of Memorial Day weekend”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We were so thankful they were open on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend. I think the businesses in Friday Harbor forgot that people would be staying until Monday. The food was very good and the service was great. Our server was very attentive even though she was the only waitress in the whole place. There were only about 12 tables in the restaurant. We came here because the locals suggested it. The only con was that it was a little pricy for Thai food. I am used to spending $25 for two people and this place cost $55 for two entrees and an appetizer for dinner. We drank water.

“A local favorite for great food and servive”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

If you are a visitor to Friday Harbor and want a "Touristy" experience there are a bunch of fine restaurants with excellent food, wonderful atmosphere, and expensive prices; however, if you just want wonderful Thai food, served in a clean atmosphere, by a friendly staff, all at a reasonable price, the Thai kitchen is the place to go. Get the garlic halibut or garlic salmon. I promise you will not be disappointed.

“Try the Pad Thai!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

Golden Triangle has delicious, fresh cooked Thai food. Its definitley the real deal. We ordered the Chicken Pad Thai and it was delicious! Some of the best I"ve had. Their Tom Yum soup was good too.
Their dinner prices are a little expensive, but I think their lunch prices are more reasonable. They have "island hours". Something like, 11-2pm and 5-8pm. Definitely good placeoking for asian inspired food on the Island.

“Nice Place for Quick Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2013

This self-service restaurant (at least during lunch) has reasonably-priced tasty food. The best value is to select from dishes that are already prepared for lunch. You can also order a-la-carte but I found it to be twice as expensive. They have a good selection of Thai and Malaysian food available for lunch. Chicken Satay with vegetarian rice is a steal at $5 - and it tastes very good!
