This place could be incredible! I ordered the chicken Satay, they came out within 5 mins which is always worrying! They weren’t all particularly hot. The biggest issue was the chicken, it was very fatty which is rare for chicken! If the chicken was just...simple chicken breast, it would have been very happy as the taste was good! But the chicken was horrible. I then had green curry, which actually was amazing! The chicken was tender and beautifully cooked and the curry was beautiful! But then Satay had ruined it! Then watching my fiancé eating beef massaman which was 90% fat! She once again said the curry was amazing, as was her soup! Just such a shame the meat used was so poor! Aside from that it’s great!More

Had a delicious dinner early on a Saturday night (5pm) so not crowded yet. Was filling up by 6:30 when we left and solid takeout business as well. Thom Kai Gai soup had outstanding flavor, veggie spring rolls hot and crisp, both of our curry...dishes (green and Panang) were wonderfully spicy. No room for dessert. I’d come back for sure. Waiter was so kind and ordered us a taxi and walked us out. Great service!!! English speaking and English menu.More

We had a large group and Urban Thai was very accommodating to put together a large table for all of us. The host was extremely gracious and even ordered a Didi car for us. Food was delicious and service was fantastic. Would definitely return!

Wonderful little gem on Dagu road. The food is absolutely delicious (try the red curry, it is very tasty and has a perfect level of spiciness!), and the staff is very friendly and speaks impeccable English. Be sure to leave some space for a dessert...too, the coconut icecream will make you smile.More

We visited twice. The first time for dinner with yummy desserts and the second time just for desert ( the sticky rice with mango ) The staff are lovely and helpful. The meals were served quickly and were very tasty. The Masamum beef and green...and yellow curry were lovely. The stick rice with mango was cooked very well the rice was just salty enough to compliment the coconut cream and sweet mango. Our second visit was during the July typhoons and the staff stayed after closing to help us get a taxi. Thank you for yummy food and great service.More

I am not a thai food lover but I have to say the food here is quite good and with a wide selection. So I can find also something I like. To come again sometimes.

Love Thai food and this place serves authentic tasting food. Had the tom yam soup and green curry which was good. Very friendly waiter, who, being American spoke perfect English. He even inquired if everything was fine, which was a first for me in China....Prices are reasonable, though the curry could be a little fuller. Also, but I guess that's a cultural thing, I like my dishes one at a time, not at the same time (or rather, getting the curry while still eating the soup).More

Good food prepared as expected with reasonable prices. Local and international clientele. Small street presence so need to look closely for sign.

We had an early evening meal here after reading the tripadvisor reviews and very glad we did. All of the food was great, especially the ginger pork. The white house wine was fine and went well with the food. The service was very good, with...friendly waiters who all spoke good English. Definitely recommended.More

Had a decent Thai meal in Urban Thai. We started with coconut drinks in the coconut shell. We drank it but really would not do it again. There was a slight after taste not sure if it was preservatives or if it was just old....We then had tom yum soup. Having had great Thai food in the US and also having visited Thailand many times i can say it was good. The only issue was seeing little chunks of coconut butter or separated ?? floating in the soup. It was followed by red curry with shrimp and a whole steamed fish. The red curry really lacked any veggies. Who wants a few pieces of shrimp and then just liquid. The fish was good and we enjoyed it. The staff was very busy since it was a Saturday evening. For eg they gave us our food before they brought the plates. Service was impersonal and we were not asked about meal till the end. When you see the ratings it almost makes food sound outstanding. Well not for this spoiled traveler who gets to eat everywhere in the world. Decent, but not outstanding.More
