During this whole stay at home mandate, my husband and I try to order dinner out weekly. This week we tried Lovely Thai. We ordered two appetizers- the egg rolls and the crab Rangoon. The egg rolls were good- not totally filled with cabbage which...was good. The crab Rangoon was different than we have experienced before. It had a crispy coating which we didn’t care for and was primarily cream cheese- no crab that we could detect. My husband had the sweet sour entree with pork which he said was good. I ordered the duck k over rice with veggies. The vegetables were crispy - which I like. The duck was not dry- but- tasted as though it had been refrigerated for some time- not fresh. I know ordering duck can be risky , however, we ordered on a Saturday night. Knowing there re. Higher volume of orders I would expect it to be very fresh. We would not order from here again.More

I have been to Lovely Thai for lunch a few times dine with friends and take out and consider it a treat each time. Food is prepared with care and I take my time eating to make it last. I just started eating Thai and...have moved from Pad Thai to most of the curry dishes, spring rolls, chive appetizers and Thai Iced Tea. I can't wait to try more. Fast and friendly service.More

Delightful little place. The lunch menu was affordable and gave choices of appetizer and soups which was a blessing. The food was tasty. We all ate every bit and it was the perfect size for lunch, not too big, not too small. Definitely will be...back when we are in the area. Pleasant server/hostess and nice relaxing atmosphere. Well Done Lovely Thai!More

I have to admit it's been years since I went to Lovely Thai, so I don't know when the current owners took over. I'm glad I went. The food and service was terrific, even though they were very busy. I had a terrific curry dish...and a huge order of fried rice. I will definitely be back!More

We came on a recommendation, and were delighted we did. The Mama combo is a definite, since it provides an array of appetizers. Also the sweet rice with mango is a must - delicious. The pad thai noodles are narrower than normal, and a bit...dry, but if you use the satay peanut sauce it is perfect. People are friendly, and helpful. We had a carry out order that took less than 10 minutes. And the restaurant was busy even though it was 3 pm. Make it a stop even if you haven't tried thai food.More

Love the basil entree with chicken. So so flavorful! Not very spicy so you need to ask for more spice and heat. Tom Ka soup very good too. Not a lot to look at inside, but nice service and a fair price. Fantastic lunch special....Worth a visit !More

No. And you have to go online for the takeout menu. But definitely worth it
