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.
