Still making great Pad Thai noodles, shrimp fried rice, and hot and sour soup. We always try to work this place into a Lubbock stop and they are still making it as great as ever.

An unassuming restaurant from it's exterior and interior appearance. One would be put off by the lack of decor and flair that usually accompanies most Asian restaurants. But, Thai, Thai is saved by its vast menu and the tantalizing and aromatic flavors of its foods.

I've been going here for over 15 years since they were on Indiana. and there are some really great hits on the menu, and some so-so things. Things to get: Pad-see-ew, Masaman, Beef panang, artar, beef noodle soup, cashew chicken, barbeque chicken breast. Some people find the owner rude, but he really is very nice, you just have to know... More

The only consistency at Thai Thai are the rising prices and declining quality of cooks, staff and food. Their menu doesn't change, instead the cooks mindlessly throw ingredients together and call it "authentic". The noodles are overcooked, the broth tastes like unseasoned water, their portions of meat are way too small and the egg rolls are saturated in grease once... More

This restaurant occupies an old Braum's or Sonic, so do not expect fancy dining here but the food is authentic, delicious, plentiful and inexpensive. The owners are Thai and they do the cooking and running the place. I loved that they have unusual drinks like San Pellegrino flavored sodas; you don't find those in many places. I had dim sum...

We visited Thai Thai for lunch and got the seafood special and the putt Thai. I didn't care for the seafood special, it tasted like dirt to me, and the putt Thai was okay, kind of bland. It is very expensive for the portions you receive and the service isn't the best. We might return to give it another chance.

took a chance on this place, overall the food was authentic. Pretty quick and portions were good, not too much, more than enough.

This was one of my go-tos when I lived in Lubbock years ago...when another local restaurant, Thai Pepper, was closed. I recently went back and was sorely disappointed. The hot and sour soup was still good and as I remembered it; however, the dishes we ordered were sub-par. The flavors were off and for the noodle dish we ordered, many... More

Have been here several times. Food is decent, but service is poor and will not be back. Owner is more interested in making sure you enter a tip in his computer than getting your order correct. He forget to enter my wife's entree, which was discovered after ever else in our party had food served(and nearly completed their meal), but... More
