I am Thai and do take out from this place very often. They even have a "Thai menu" written in Thai with more authentic Thai food. Highly recommended.

Rod Dee is an excellent Thai restaurant. Was there for lunch on a Sunday afternoon on the spur of the moment, and was pleasantly surprised. Not crowded, it seemed like most people had been there before. Two thirds families. It is a cash only restaurant. You order at the counter, your food is brought to you, and you bus your... More

A very reliable and inexpensive Thai restaurant. Local Thai's love it too. Great noodle and rice dishes.

When I walked in it had a Fast Food concept where you order at the counter and if you were eating there they would bring the food out to you. I wasn't feeling too adventurous that day so I went with a safer bet which was the Yellow Curry with Pineapple. I didn't expect such a large dish and could... More

Went here for dinner (3 people) one rainy night. This small place is perfect for families with small kids, was very loud and a little dirty. Like a fast food place. BUT the menu choices and food was actually very good. We had individual soups, and entrees ranging from a spicy chicken pad thai to a Singaporean entree with fried... More

This restaurant is in my neighborhood, so very often spur of the moment I decide I don't feel like cooking and will walk to the restaurant and place my order, I never call my order in ahead, for I find that they are very quick. I am a creature of habit and most times get the same one dish to... More

I've seen this place a million times. I finally got a change to stop on the way to event (table of 7). Great selection, great food, and a good price. Just so you know, this is cafeteria style dining. Order at the counter and pay cash. All the meals we ordered were very good, but the dumplings stood out as... More

Great authentic Thai food! My wife and I are Thai and are regulars at Rod Dee. We take out here roughly once at week and the people recognize me on the phone.

Friends had recommended Rod Dee for several months and finally my daughter and I, craving Thai, stopped and ate there. Upon my first bite, I regretted having waited so long to follow my friends' advice. The vegetables were fresh, the sauce a yummy complement, and the service friendly and efficient. We'll be regulars soon.

A must visit for anyone going to Boston. Great food, great selection, and reasonable price. Beware though. Cash only!
