The food is consistent at this local, neighborhood Thai restaurant. The spring rolls with peanut sauce - well, we get them all the time. Always fresh and good. The curry's are great. Kids seem to love the fries. Not very many choices for wine or beer, no IPA for example when we visited. Service was quick even though they were... More

Love the yellow curry. Viet Thai Bistro is a staple in our neighborhood for good reason. Consistently delicious and reasonably priced for for quality food.

When I first saw this place come into the neighborhood, I didn't know what kind of food it was. Finally went to the window to look at menu, Thai/Vietnamese food. It's usually pretty busy during lunch and dinner hours so gave it a try. So glad I did. Just about everything I've tried is quite good. Love the salad rolls,... More

I often get lunch here. I get the Pad See Mao (I think it's called that) with wide noodles, basil, vegs and chicken. YUM!!!! They are friendly, busy and I think the food is great. I can be a little spendy about $10. I wonder if that's because of the location?

You know its a good place when all you see when you enter is a bunch of people from Asia. The food is top notch and the staff is wonderful. It is my first pick when it comes to Thai food.

This restaurant is very small, so you'll want to go early to get a table at lunch time. The food is always fresh and hot. I have never been disappointed with the quality or quantity of food. I like the Pad Thai and the Garlicky Greens (not too garlicky). Either dish can be ordered with a healthy serving of shrimp,... More

My Husband and I are big fans of Thai food. We were out shopping and yelped for nearby Thai food for lunch. What a find! Located in a strip mall (I almost gave it 4 stars because of this) we knew it would be a fast in and out. We started with the Tom Kha and it was as authentic... More

Small place. Been there twice. Rice with Grilled Chicken: This is the equivalent of Lemongrass chicken dish from other Vietnamese restaurants. Chicken wings (garlic flavor) is awesome... just that the minimum number of wings you have to order is 10. Definitely would visit again.

decor nothing to brag about, but comfortable - who cares really when you eat such great food? excellent pad thai, pad kee mao, and garlicky greens. the basic concept here is that half the menu is vietnamese (meat-based, so we were out of luck there), and half is thai (plentiful vegetarian options) - plus for some inexplicable reason, new york...
