I've had almost every dish that isn't fish related and haven't been disappointed yet. The food is always tasty!! If i see an ingredient that i don't like, all I have to do is ask. They are always happy to help make my meal exactly the way i want. Also, their peanut sauce is AMAZING!! If you love peanut butter,... More

Dropped in for an early dinner Tuesday night, my first time at this restaurant. The decor is simple and homey and the restaurant seats about 20 tables. There were only 3 tables occupied when I arrived but by 7pm every table was taken and the place was buzzing. Most, if not all of the customers appeared to be locals. I... More

Friendly service, always tasty food. Love the soups, pumpkin curry, and the wide noodle dishes, and the fresh spring rolls.

We love this place! Great food and service. I love the coconut milk soup and my daughter and I always split a fried banana and ice cream dessert! We bring family and friends and they are always impressed with the food selections too. Definitely a favorite "go to" place in Scotts Valley.

Kao Sook is a small Thai restaurant hidden in a strip mall along Mt Hermon Road in Scotts Valley. It is our favorite local Thai place. The have a large menu and a fast kitchen. Our large takeout orders (5 - 7 entrees) usually take only 20 minutes for preparation, even on busy nights. Be prepared for a little wait... More

I would like to give this place a chance but even when I speak a little thai to order my food, the staff still makes my food for their common clientele. I am an islander and often gets mistaken for being Thai. Their portions are small yet pricey. I came here 3x and I cannot come back again as much... More

Even if you just wanted a snack, order the Angel Wings. Deep fried check wings stuffed with glass noodles and vegetables, served with a dipping sauce. Classic Thai appetizer, along with the Green Papaya salad. If this and a glass of wine was all two people ordered, you'd have a pretty substantial snack and maybe a meal. We went on... More
