The food itself was quite good. Very tasty with good combination of spices without just being flaming hot like some places. One of the servers had a constant scowl on her face. The others were pleasant. Portions nicely sized but a little pricey. Premises itself is tight and not well designed. If you have a mobility issue you'll have a... More

Came for lunch and really happy to have found this little gem! The cafe is smaller, and being in the corner lot of a busy thoroughfare, it has been interestingly and imaginatively designed seating. Food has very delicious flavors, seriously! Freshest ingredients used, and generous portions offered. We had items off the lunch selections that were simply delectable including the... More

We tried to order this evening. Took over two hours. Constant calls said ordering was coming. Horrible customer service and delivery.

Decided to make a change from standard Asian restaurants and called Little Thai Kitchen. Food was excellent and very well prepared. This almost a hole-in-the-wall. Very small with limited parking available , but the food is not to be missed. Authentic taste treat. If you put in a blindfold you could be in Bangkok.

Generous portions and there is never a wait. I love the cashew Chicken, Garlic Chicken and in the winter definitely get the soon sen soup. Dumplings here are the best in town.

Having been to Thailand, my husband and I are very picky about Thai food, which is our favorite cuisine. Little Thai Kitchen does not disappoint. You can order the meals "medium", which will bring up the spice a bit. Most people will order "mild", which has barely any spice. But the food is extremely flavorful and fragrant regardless. My favorite... More

Take out is always good. It's cozy inside - maybe 10 tables (est) in total, so if not busy, your OK. We ate inside a couple of times. Food is consistently good. It's not Manhattan and does not have grand decor - but solid nonetheless. We like it because it has a good selection of Thai foods.

The food here is simply amazing. Start out with the Mee Grob (the name isn't totally appetizing.....but the actual dish is!!!). Great dumplings and noodle bowls too. Oh, and the noodle bowls are HUGE. I can't wait to go back and work my way through the menu. Not a big place....and no alcohol.....but don't let that stop you.

We have been going to the original Little Thai Kitchen in Greenwich for years and tried this when it first opened. The service then was poor but has definitely improved. It will never be their key strength! I was happy to see they have Drunken Noodles but would have liked a little more basil and it did not taste like... More
