Have traveled to Thailand, had dinner cooked by Thai friends and this restaurant serves EXCEPTIONAL Thai cuisine ! You can adjust the 'spicy' level to suit you, my Mom is 80 and she loves eating here. You can't go wrong when choosing KruaThai for AUTHENTIC Thai food. Small quaint location with a booming take-out business too.

I ordered pad thai with the spicy level as spicy. I didn't knew that more spice means just plain simple red chillis...I couldn't even eat that...I had to drink plenty of water to eat just 1/3rd of the plate. The server should have told us. Moreover the service was not prompt -i need to get up on my own to... More

We were planning to visit a mexican restaurant that was closed. We almost left but noticed this Thai restaurant next door. I had the curry noodles with chicken, and my sister had the mild curry paste with potatoes and carrots and chicken. It was very tasty. We were told the curry was mild, and a tad on the hot side....

We lived in Asia for more than fifteen years, so we know our Thai food. Krua Thai is the best value for money in Paradise Valley. Dishes are made to order, so you can specify mild, medium, hot, or Thai hot. We ordered the veggie rolls (crispy and not greasy), the summer rolls (fresh taste), masaman curry with chicken, and...

Best curry red and yellow in phoenix.. I like hot and they deliver. Great place great prices. Second rate strip center.

Krua thai needs newer and nicer building with an... More

Just what the doctor ordered! A small, easy to miss Thai restaurant with really only one flaw, they don't take American express. This is a problem when you travel for work and have to use your corporate card. The red curry was amazing, a perfect blend of spices and textures to completely satisfy the palette. I went with the Thai... More

Nice thai menu with a stream of customers for dining in and taking out. Curries, spring rolls and thai coffee.

We have been here several times for lunch now - the lunch special menu is reasonable and contains quite a few options...it's small and popular, so if you go at popular times, you have to be aware you may have to wait a bit....Service is efficient and quick, food has always been fresh and excellent, from the soup to entrees...
