We would never had considered this place had we not seen the reviews, a classic case of not judging a book by it's cover but it's outside appearance does it no favours. Having said that we took a chance and were pleased we did, it's quite basic inside but clean and the food which is the main thing was tasty,... More

I have driven past this place many times and it never crossed my mind to go. The Thai restaurant on the bayfront was closed so we decided to go here instead. It blew my mind and I have never been back to the other place. The food is tastier, cheaper, and the portions are bigger. I love Thai food and... More

If you are staying in Newport, this is definitely worth a visit. We would have never stopped here based on location and parking lot appearance, but the good reviews convinced us. The interior is super clean and pleasant. The service was great. The sauces (as some reviews mention) are on the sweet side, which we were fine with. Pad Thai... More

Was really in the mood for Thai Food, and this place was perfect. Not fancy, but the service and food were great. Had the Chicken Pad Thai. It came with a coconut and vegetable soup that was really good! The staff were very friendly and cheerful. The lunch special was the perfect portions, and left feeling very sated.

I have gone here so many times and everything is always so good and the portions are huge. I have eaten 4 meals from one dish before. The wontons are the best. Be careful with your spiciness, when they ask you mild medium or hot and warn you that hot is very spicy they are not joking. The building from... More

I LOVE good Thai food and this place is pretty darned good. (I have other Thai restaurant favorites but they are 3 and 16 hours away from the coast). Nice menu choices, VERY reasonable, GREAT lunch specials (get there early as it gets crowded), and substantial portions. If you really like peanut sauce, try the noodle dish with TONS of... More

Saw ad in a local rag and thought we would stop by for lunch. First trip to Newport and we almost thought Lucky Thai was closed but we pulled in and found it open. Our lunch choices were excellent. We were also given a delicious coconut soup before lunch arrived and it was delicious. If we are ever back in... More
