It's a very small place but very big when it comes to customer service. They cater to your palate, making it as spicy or not, as you like. There is a diverse menu and the servings are very generous. This is the place to go if trying it for the first time or are a fan of Thai food. Enjoy!

Gao Thai Kitchen amazes me every time we dine there. The Thai food is outstanding and the value is incomparable. I highly recommend the duck entrée. Go early as it gets crowded on weekends and does not have a very large dining room.

GAO is right here in my hometown and even though I travel for work and visit many places GAO is still the best! Service is friendly, place is a bit intimate in size but comfortable. Their papaya salad and beef massuman curry are wonderful. Highly recommend.

Delicious, well-executed Thai with a bit of inventiveness. The place is clean and pretty and the outdoor seating is nice. The service is most often very friendly and accommodating.

Although I don't frequent Gao as much as I did a few years ago, I still get a chance to indulge at this sweet little cozy spot from time to time. I still take my family there on special occasions (birthdays, holidays and such). That's when I order the ginger fish (red snapper)! So good! When I visit alone, I... More

I have been to Gao numerous times and it never fails to deliver wonderful Thai dishes. It is a BYO, open 7 days a week for dinner and lunch at very reasonable prices. It is small with tables close to one another, but the service is great. I recommend the steamed mussels, whole fish or salmon but honestly all the... More

We had a dinner reservation for a party of 6, celebrating 2 birthdays. It's a small place and it was packed on Saturday. Parking is very tight, another option is to park in the shopping center not too far and walk to the place. Service is OK, but the opinion on the food (and 5 of us ordered different Pad... More
