Went here for first time. Had lunch and portions were large and tasty makes wonder how large the dinner portions are. You can pick your heat. They have 5 different levels. I had hot and it was pretty hot. There are 3 levels hotter! My...wife had medium and it was perfect for her. Also they don’t serve alcohol but your allowed to bring your own. They only charge a small corkage fee. Highly recommend!More

We ate in the restaurant once and had a take away once. The food is delicious and is reasonably priced compared to the high prices of some of the restaurants in the area. Little bit out of the centre of the town but only a...short walk away.More

We had great Thai food here and highly recommend this restaurant. It has a very nice atmosphere inside, kind of classy but casual. We ordered yellow curry and drunken noodles and for desert, deep fried ice cream! All delicious! Our waitress was very nice and...helpful. Would go back!More

Food and service were great. My only complaint was that the nice waitress cautioned us away from medium spice level so we all got mild which was more like no spice. Maybe I should have told them we are from AZ and eat spicy stuff...alot. Anyway, drunken noodles were good and flavorful as was the yellow curry.More

This place has come to become my most favorite Thai food. We visited in a group and every item was done to perfection. The flavors were delicately balanced and food was fresh. I liked it so much that I now compare all Thai restaurants to...this one. Wish they would soon open a few branches in SF Bay Area.More

We were hungry after a day of exploring. Friendly service, delicious food. We had the massaman curry with shrimp and chicken pad thai. You can tell someone's auntie lovingly cook the food in the kitchen. Prices very reasonable.

Tom Kha soup was below average. It lacked galangal and lemon grass. We ordered spicy but it was below medium. In fact, not even lightly spicy.

We ordered takeaway from Krua Thai Cuisine and we all enjoyed our food. The drunken noodles with tofu was particularly good. For four main courses, before a tip, the total cost was around $55.

Easy location for take out. Ready quickly and hot when picked up. Town Wonton crispy and tasty without being greasy. Thai Fried Rice a bit lacking in vegetables but a generous portion. Queen of Siam Basil good and also a generous portion. Volcanic Duck expensive...but the duck was a good sized portion, tender, and the skin was properly rendered. I would say this thai restaurant was as good as the thai we have at home in the States but it made for a tasty meal.More

Driving up from Volcano we Tripadvised our way to trying Krua Thai for a late lunch...and ended up with a huge, delicious meal that put us off dinner that evening. We five of us started with a Chicken Satay, Golden Triangle, Crispy Thai Spring Rolls,...Fresh Basil Rolls, and Green Papaya salad. Then followed with a Tome Yum soup w/shrimp, Phad Woon San, two Massaman Curries and a Yellow Curry (all with sticky rice). All were supremely delicious though the Massaman curries were particularly exceptional and Phad Woon San was pronounced by my son as the best Thai noodle dish he had ever eaten. Thai Iced Coffees were very much enjoyed by four of us though we thought the ones with Coconut Milk were just that much better. Service was wonderful and the atmosphere was perfectly nice - more or less like the countless other Thai restaurants we've been to. I strongly encourage anyone who enjoys Thai Cuisine to dine here.More
