This restaurant has been out of business for months. It came as no surprise since when driving by we would see only one or two cars in the parking lot. We walked out the first time we tried it because the prices and atmosphere had...More

I ordered take-out from Thaindia, never having been there before. It seemed to have good reviews, and the Thai/Indian options are limited in this area. I ordered the Indian chicken curry and Thai tea. The curry was spicy and very fresh. The sauce did not...More

When the place was empty at lunch we should have guessed. Fine dining means Very expensive and small portions. Don't get me wrong the food was very good. But, just because you put White tablecloths and cloth napkins on the old tables doesn't make this...More

This is the first time we have eaten at Thaindia since it opened. Its predecessor, Renoos, had been on a long downhill slide and we were skeptical about trying the new place. Reviews were mixed - seemed at opposite ends of the spectrum - and...More

We went to Thandie not knowing that Renoo's had closed/moved, and what a wonderful surprise. The dishes were flavorful and beautiful to look at as well. Be warned, when the menu says spicy, it's true, even for a chile-loving New Mexican. We'll be back soon.More

Hi there, Bob! We agree, spicy certainly means prepare your taste buds for a party when it comes to our dishes that are packing some heat, and it takes a brave soul to try one so kudos to you. We truly appreciate you setting aside...More

THAINDIA is a love affair first and foremost, a love affair between a Thai wife and an Indian husband, both of whom love great delicious food and enjoy creating and sharing the same. Nothing is more pleasurable and satisfying than to see the expression of our guests when they taste and are captured by the feelings of euphoria by what we have created. We never wanted to own and operate a restaurant, the foods we created was only available to our close friends and family, everyone kept saying we should open a restaurant and share this with the world, but we resisted, however, it is an exercise in futility resisting the inevitable, so here we present to you THAINDIA It is our most sincere desire to provide you our guests a unique experience of the world's two oldest, richest, and most diverse cultures, cuisine, and civilizations. Our first task is to create and offer amazing and unique culinary delights to awaken, tantalize, and satisfy your taste and sooth your soul. You will not find the typical Indian and Thai fares you find in almost all Indian and Thai restaurants. Indian sub-continent alone offers so much verity it is impossible to exhaust the options, when we add Thai to the mix we might as well write a novel as our menu, so why limit ourselves to the same old mundane offering. Chef Lugo in corroboration with the owners invite you to come and experience our hospitality, and taste explosion of authentic Thai and Indian cuisine. Secondly, we want you to feel the culture, hospitality, and ambiance of both Thailand and India, both cultures are imbued with an unprecedented hospitality and desire to serve, we want you to feel absolutely welcomed and honored when you step in THAINDIA. Hospitality, service and honoring part we have got it covered, the ambiance is still a work in progress and we humbly ask your indulgence while we work hard to accomplish that.
