Can't fault the food here: consistent, inexpensive and fast. My fave is the Pad King with extra ginger, medium hot which is plenty for most western palates. Big pot of fresh rice served up steaming hot. The bench seats are a little hard on ones bottom and on my last visit with a Lynch date the waitress (I think she... More

One of our very favorite restaurants when visiting Michigan. The food is always excellent the restaurant is very clean and the staff attentive, helpful and friendly. This last visit we had spring rolls and chicken Sarah for appetizers and both were delicious. My pad kra prow was wonderful and as spicy as I like. They will adjust the spiciness and... More

Made with real chicken breast! I was so excited! The crab pineapple rangoon should probably be marketed as dessert, but it was so so good I could have had it for both appetizer and dessert! It was typical fair for Thai restaurant, lacked a little authenticity that you can usually find around Canton, but still superb.

Went to eat lunch before heading to Ikea nearby. I ordered the peanut curry, it was ok, but bland. My mom had the yellow curry, but the potatoes in her dish looked like they were fried, yet soggy and tasted a bit weird. Our friend ordered the pad Thai, and it was the best dish out of the three, yet... More

We have been enjoying Lai Thai since they opened. Delicious and beautiful food and very good and friendly service. We have yet to find another Thai restaurant that we like as much. The chicken satay appetizer is enough for a meal! If you have not tried Thai cuisine yet, then try Lai Thai. You will not be disappointed. They have... More

Pad Pak seemed like it was watered down. I had ordered it to-go, and didn't realize until I had gotten home. It smelled great, but was VERY bland, even though I had ordered it Medium Plus. The heat was perfect, but the flavor was just not there. I will not be back. ever.

Very good Pad Pak and Pad Thai. The bean noodles are excellent. Servers very friendly. They don't serve alcohol ( which is disappointing when you are looking forward to a Singha).
