Every dish that came to the table was super cheap and super tasty. The Chicken Star Thai special was especially tasty. The service was great. The price was surprisingly low. WE WILL COME BACK HERE AGAIN - AND SOON! Thanks, James!

Hands down the best thai food in Colorado. The food is excellent! Not just the pad thai but everything on the menu is great! The service is excellent and it's a hole in the wall type of restaurant....my favorite! The food takes a little bit to get out to the table sometimes but it is definatly worth the wait. Most...

Went to this restaurant for dinner last night. It is a very small establishment, it has only six tables. The interior is very minimum like most southeast Asian restaurant. I ordered papaya salad and spicy chicken fried rice. I'm a native Asian and have had better papaya salad before. What I had on my plate last night had too much... More

Wonderful little place with excellent, fresh food. Friendly service. Great hidden treasure. Medium spicy is pretty hot, be careful :)

I've eaten at Star Thai many times thanks to a couple of Thai friends that love the place. It's small with a kitchen within a few feet and the owner is always smiling and very friendly. Kind of reminds me of a Thai restaurant in the back alley of an Asian restaurant district. Not too many seating opportunities, but the... More

Star Thai has long been my go to place for authentic Thai. I have been to Thailand many times and this is the closest you can get to Thai street food that I have found.

This is truly a neighborhood Thai joint, but the neighborhood is smack dab in Lakewood! It could be in a back alley in Thailand. The cooking is honest and down home. Be careful. The hot is really hot, and the medium packed some heat too. I'd advise starting mild and spicing it up yourself. We had coconut soup, the green... More

I was not impressed with the Pad Thai. It was fast service, but the flavor needs help and the place could stand to be cleaned up a bit inside.

I can comprehend why some reviewers have mentioned the portion size is small. Though the size of the dish is not an issue with us. We're not heavy eaters. We ordered fresh spring rolls, crispy fried egg rolls, and Massamen curry (dinner size). Fresh spring rolls tasted very different from Vietnamese style but still very good! Also curry was delicious!... More

We really enjoyed our visit. Atmosphere means nothing,.... if you want the atmosphere of Thailand this is where you see it. Owner, cook, cashier, waiter, they do it all in one.
