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

I come here a lot for take out but the food is ready so fast which is great. I'm always pleased with the Pad Thai. The restaurant is a little small, but it's a good place to go if you're going solo or with just a few people.

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

The Thai food here is really good, I enjoyed the Green Curry soup and it was delicious! My father had the basil squid and he said it was very tasty. Once we got our food the service left a bit to be desired. I was trying to get their attention to get a glass of water, but they were very... More
