Come here often with friends. Everything is wonderful, but my favorite is Pad Thai with shrimp. Pad Thai beef and spring rolls are highly recommended. Friendly. Clean.

I've not had Thai food often, but I found the meal I had at Rutherford Thai to be excellent. I got to choose my "spice" level, so that took away some of the reticence I had about ordering potentially hot food. You can pick a...More

Ate here two days ago with another couple. My wife and I are Thai food newbies and the other couple was pretty familiar with standard Thai food. This restaurant has a pretty extensive menu and we wanted to try some new tastes. We ordered spring...More
