First, make reservations. We went on a Sunday evening and they were turning away people without reservations. The food was amazing! Service was great. Interesting cocktails. I had the salmon and loved it. My husband had a seafood pot and said it was delicious. There...is a parking lot with free parking for customers of Patio Thai on the corner near the restaurant.More

Just as the ratings said, 5 stars. This is a really cute restaurant with really good authentic Thai food. I started with the dumplings. Goyoza. I asked for a recommendation and the waitress said she liked the Krispy Duck. I hadn't had good Thai food...in a long time. And I haven't eaten duck in many years. So I have it a try. The dumplings were very good. When the main meal came out, the presentation was quite nice. The serving was large. Duck, veggies and rice. The taste was awesome. It was a great recommendation. The place seems to be much bigger than it looks like. There are tables in the main room by the bar. There are tables in another section in the back and the patio section also. The restaurant is cute, sexy and romantic. Bring a date or family or like me, come solo. I recommend this place.More

Fresh food with many menu choices. We have visited many times and they are able to satisfy one GF and one Vegan children.

It’s not every day that your hotel desk clerk directs you to a standout local restaurant, but tonight, he did! I tried Patio Thai on the recommendation of the hotel, and found what may be my new favorite Thai restaurant. Quirky and funky location in...an old building and courtyard in downtown Richmond, the décor is eclectic and casually upscale. I was immediately welcomed on arrival, and elected to sit in the front bar area. Service was attentive without being obtrusive. Dinner? Outstanding! Wonton soup full of veggies and a large serving. Red curry beef, extra spicy, was served hot and full of flavor. The patio area wasn’t open tonight (cold winter night), but looks like it would be fun to visit on a warmer day. I can very much recommend this restaurant, and look forward to visiting again on future trips to Richmond.More

This restaurant distinguishes itself from the run-of-the-mill Thai restaurant, although their menu offers most of the familiar standbys. We were seated on the namesake patio which was spacious; they also have plenty of indoor seating. They have a nice list of house cocktails to start....We ordered spring rolls which were very crispy, and fried tofu for appetizers. I had crispy duck, the best of this type of dish I have had. It was a bit fatty, but crispy duck is supposed to be that way, and it was delicious. It was crispy without being chewy. We also had vegetable tofu soup, yellow curry and green curry. Brown rice is available as an option. One of us was vegan and gluten-free, and he had no trouble at all finding menu selections to meet his needs. The server was very knowledgeable about ingredients, and noted that the tofu was fried in the same oil that gluten dishes would be fried in (not a problem for us). They finished with a small complimentary serving of lime cream pie. The service was efficient and delightful. I will definitely make this a regular stop on my visits to Richmond. It is less than a 10-minute walk from the Jefferson Hotel. Parking is available if you drive. A full dinner for three with two cocktails, a soda, two appetizers, one soup, three entrees, was $92 plus tax (13.5%) and tip.More

Don't drive by The Patio Thai. It is a cool location and with a wonderful ambiance for causal dining. Our family enjoyed a delicious meal. We ordered the Gyoza and crispy chicken wings as appetizers. If you think that all Gyoza is basically the same--you...are wrong. The Patio Thai Gyoza is crispy on the outside and packed with delicious on the inside. The chicken wings were also delicious and crispy. Pad Thai is a favorite. It was delicious. The kids had curry dishes that they say were the "best". Portion sizes were more than fair. The patio in the back is an oasis on Cary Street. Don't miss The Patio Thai when you are visiting Richmond.More

We found this place on our way up I-95 . Great find. They have a cozy land inviting patio, which is perfect for relaxing on a warm summer evening. We started with the green papaya salad (we requested less spicy)!and it was light and refreshing....We then had then seafood hot pot and it was generously packed with a variety of shellfish and squid with a light sauce. We also ordered the Rama chicken (grilled chicken in peanut sauce) and it was really delicious - the chicken was well-cooked and the sauce was flavorful. The portions were generous and we couldn't finish everything. Our server was friendly and helpful with choosing our dishes. All of the staff pitched in and everyone was very pleasant and efficient. Our only issue was the waiting. Apparently, they had a computer glitch and the tickets weren't printing out in the kitchen and, by the time they realized it, they had 40 orders stacked up. So, the dishes came out late (we were there for almost 2 hours). The servers apologized to several tables, (including ours), kept us informed, and offered free drinks and desserts. We declined the drinks as we still had a long way to drive, but accepted the dessert, which was a chocolate pie. It was good, but obviously not made in the restaurant. (Didn't stop us from eating it though.)More

We were visiting Richmond and were looking online for Thai takeout when we found Patio Thai. We had three different curry entrees plus spring rolls as an appetizer. It was all great! Each entree had the spice level we requested and each was excellent. 15...minutes from order to pickup on a Saturday night--a great experience. Although we did takeout, the sitdown portion of the restaurant looked to be well-appointed and inviting. We'll check that out next time! The happy staff even threw in a surprise slice of cheesecake, with a Merry Christmas message!More
