Very tasty Thai food. We often get ours to go.......Partially due to service that can border on angry. So skip the service and the tip. Get the food to go and have great Thai at home.

Glad you love our food! Though service should definitely be as amazing as our Thai dishes -- if you ever feel like you're being mistreated, please don't hesitate to ask for a manager. Best wishes, Takhrai Thai

Tried it out on a weekday-popular place, but plenty of room. Atmosphere was pleasant, very easy to talk (not loud), and food was excellent.

We had been to the sister restaurant of Takhrai Thai, Lai Thai, many times. This one is more upscale with a completely different menu. The presentation was spectacular. Especialy for the "Love Boat" entree. The food was good, spiced just right. And very good service.
