this is a popular place - perhaps because of the relative lack of non-mexican ethnic restaurants in the region - food is good, but far from meeting expectations raised by local customers - hard to find the duck in the duck curry, spring rolls cold, fairly tasteless - service friendly, if not knowledgeable.

The restaurant has a pleasing southeast Asian atmosphere and a wonderfully varied menu along with a unique puffed pastry appetizer. I had the green curried chicken which was perfect and my partner had the Panaeg Salmon which was likewise very good. The wait staff is friendly lending to the overall pleasing ambiance of this restaurant.

We have been to Phat Thai 4-5 times over the past few years and it never disappoints. The services is always excellent and the meals are always creative and contain fresh ingredients and are well prepared and presented.

For a small town, Carbondale sure has some little gems when it comes to food. Phat Thai is another one. Located in downtown Carbondale, with a name like "Fat Thai", I wasn't sure what to expect but upon walking in, I noticed that the restaurant looked very chic. We ordered some drinks and appetizers and they were all pretty good.... More

I have been all over SE Asia but Phat Thai has some of the best Thai food I have eaten anywhere. Granted it is pricier than the stalls in Bangkok or street food ChangMai, but it is certainly every bit as good. I had coconut rice with lamb curry ( using local lamb) and it was fabulous. Also try their... More

There were some nice surprises on this menu. Crisp tofu balls in coconut were novel and tasty, with lots of crisp-tender veggies. Pad Thai was more peanuty than most. Veggie spring rolls were fresh and fine. Coconut rice is more like rice pudding than a mate for savory part of the meal-- but so good. Desserts--flan and brownie--both got high... More

Great food, but you should know that it is not authentic Thai food...and they do not claim to be either! This restaurant is great at taking a twist on Thai food and putting it in a hip, youthful environment. The place is great for people in there 20s/30s...with close together tables and friendly vibe. The staff is very friendly but... More

Phat Thai in Carbondale, Colorado was OK, and while we know Thai well, we found this experience somewhat lacking. Maybe because the restaurant was pretentious, and we were in mountain mode. Since our Carbondale visit, I find out Phat Thai is but a chain-thai restaurant also located in Denver’s Cherry Creek area known for toni Aspen want-to-be’s. Listen, I don’t... More

Had been there several years ago and think it was much better then. Had the Firecracker Shrimp...were there always only 4? The roasted Brussels sprouts were a little al dente even though well browned "after the fact." The spicy basil chicken was not spicy unfortunately. Probably would not go back.
