Staff at our hotel recommended this restaurant as we were not familiar with the area. We ate dinner rather early and received excellent attention by the wait staff. Food was tasty and portion sizes were large even for three hungry males. Parked on the street and walked a block to restaurant. Would recommend this restaurant if looking for an affordable... More

Have never been in the restaurant but our office orders for delivery quite often as it is more convenient for us. I am not a Thai food fan but can review from the rest of our employees. They obviously love it since we order often

Been a fan of Satay ever since living in Malaysia for several years. this place is authentic. Plus it is reasonable in a city where the price of a light lunch can cost you 20 bucks

We went as a group of 6 people. About half of us enjoyed our dishes while the other half felt like their dish was mediocre or worse. The two people who ordered curry were happy with their dishes. They charge $2 for a bowel of rice.

We came to the restaurant late at night, 9pm, on a weekday. The restaurant still had many customers. Our food came very quickly and was delicious. They were very accommodating to special dietary needs, such as Gluten Free.

Food was excellent from the chicken Larb, Thai shrimps, their grilled salmon and the seafood specialty dish. Abundant choices and all of the food we tried was very good with very large portions . First trip to Thai Satay . Thumbs up!

We visited late one night after a day of business meetings. Though the "open" sign was on, we were told that they were about to close, so could only do a to-go order. We ordered a Pad Thai and Satay Sampler. The Satay was nice, especially well-spiced, served with a generous cup of peanut dipping sauce. The Pad Thai was... More
