Rod Dee's is absolutely one of the best places to eat in the Boston area. You have to have cash but it is definitely worth the trip to the ATM. I used to eat here several times a week and since I've moved out of state, it's one of the things I miss most. The chicken and shrimp pad thai... More

I've been eating at Rod Dee for over 17 years and I have yet to find another Thai restaurant that serves food this quick and this delicious. Though it may come under the definition of "fast food" I find their dishes to be as good or better than more upscale restaurants. My favorite is the Indonesian fried rice, Massaman Curry... More

Based on TA reviews, we ate dinner one night on the same little block where we were staying (an Airbnb score!) The man at the register all but rolled his eyes at us! We were figuring out what we wanted and he was so rude. But, the food was good, so we returned another day for lunch (he wasn't there).... More

Almost a self serve place....food is just OK but not up to street food in Bangkok ! Service was quick, but you are eating at what is really a take away place

This is a great place to visit when you just want a quick meal. The service is quick and no, they don't make an effort to smile or engage with you in any way, but the price reflect this so adjust your expectations accordingly. I wouldn't call this a restaurant. It's about as personable as a fast food joint. You... More

We went as a party of four and ordered several dishes. When the lady brought new food to our crowded table I tried to hand her our finished plates to make room for the new dishes. She refused to take them stating it's a self service restaurant. My guests and I were shocked at how rude she was. It's a... More

I eat here as often as I can - everything is good and fresh and is prepared quickly. And the value is excellent/big portions.

Rod Dee offers super-tasty Thai food. Alas, it's no longer reasonably priced like it was when we'd visit the Rod Dee in the Fenway in from 2001-2006 -- quite expensive. But very worth a visit nonetheless!

I'm no Thai expert but loved the Pad Thai - ordered extra spicy with chicken. Note: cash only! Menu selection is huge, excited to go back

This place has unbelievable food for an unbelievable price. I got the red curry with chicken and it was only 7.40 and lasted and I had enough leftovers for a second meal. Although the curry was delicious, the only thing keeping me from giving this an excellent review is the fact that it perhaps had too much rice. Personally I... More
