I come to this restaurant whenever I'm visiting in town. Great service, very clean restaurant. Lots on the menu and authentic! Have the red curry and the madman curry, won't disappoint! Have not tried the meat options but the tofu is done very well.

We used Thai Yai to cater our daughters grad party. They were wonderful to work with and the food was awesome. We had pineapple fried rice with chicken, cream cheese puffs, and mini fresh spring rolls. They gave us huge portions and were extremely helpful by carrying the food to our car and loading it. We will definitely use them... More

We try to visit this lovely hidden gem when in Apple Valley. If you like Thai food or want to try it you won't be disappointed . Very friendly almost to a fault(if that's' possible!) and quick service. Prices very reasonable as well!

My husband had the pad Thai, which he said was better than Ruam MIT's version, so that's high praise. I had the pad pak. It was good but I would have liked it better if the sauce hadn't been watery. Service was outstanding; they were quick and never forgot about us. (The decor does need work. It would help to... More

This restaurant is consistently excellent. The staff is friendly and very attentive. Take out is lightning quick and dining in is always satisfying. This is my favorite restaurant in the south metro. The Tom yum soup is awesome, the satay is hot and tender. The pad Thai is the bomb.

We ordered take out food. All 3 soups we tried were good. The egg rolls with beef were very good - tasty insides with crisp wrapper. The chicken pad Thai was dry. The beef with oyster sauce was light and fresh. When I picked up the food I noticed the lack of ambiance - I wouldn't want to sit and... More

People who live around here are lucky. It's rare to find a Thai place with good food, extensive, interesting menu, good service, AND good prices. I had Pad Woon Sen (glass or silver thread noodles) and it was delicious. Only criticism is adding items not listed on the menu, but hey, this is a family-style restaurant. I decided to order...

The dining area decor is not the greatest but the food was good and the staff was very attentive. I would definitely recommend this restaurant especially compared to other restaurants in the area.
