I've been to this welcoming and spotlessly clean Thai restaurant in Brookline several times and always been impressed. The menu is extensive and I've never been disappointed. The service is exceptional and the cocktails delicious. Every dish I've had has been perfect. Highly recommended!

I was in the neighborhood and walked in and placed my take-out order. The women at the door greeted me and was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed 2 cold salads, a spicy thai mango and a green papaya (som tum) as well as 2 curry dishes Masaman which was kind of a brown sause and spicy, and yellow curry... More

While I normally prefer Sichuan and other local Chinese cuisines to Thai, Kao Earn offers some unusual dishes that make for a great dining experience. The spicy duck is one of my favorites.

If you want some good Thai food, this is the place to go. The food was great but the service, I unfortunately could not say the same thing about. We ordered the chicken satay, one of the soups and a crispy chicken dish. And it was amazing! However, we asked for a little bit of fresh basil for the top... More

Khao Sarn has all the appearance of an uninspired and average restaurant...until you eat the food. I have been here for dinner several times, and every time it has never been full or had a wait to get a table. Considering its location right off Coolidge Corner, this is a bit surprising and may cause the uninitiated to believe the... More

Great food, very attentive service ( though could have been a bit more polished) Spice ratings really not respected - two peppers barely spicy at all, so if you want it hot, you need to ask. Large portion sizes

I recognize that this review is based on only my first impressions but for me that is key. I plan on going back this stay already! I was trying to find a Thai restaurant fairly close to my hotel - discovered this location was quite a bit of a walk from my hotel but it was worth it. The staff... More

Our family ate here on Christmas eve. And my most vivid impression is the graciousness of the staff as they served us in their inviting dining area. Yes -- and the food was quite good as well! Everything tasty. I'm no expert on Thai food, though we eat it quite a bit, and this seemed excellent. All three of us... More

We were a party of 8, and so we sampled many dishes. All were good. I can't say any were novel or inspired, but all were fresh, delicately spiced, and well balanced.
