Nestled among the auto repair shops and insurance companies on Perrin Beitel, is an excellent, but often overlooked small Thai restaurant, "Thai Cafe". Please don't make the mistake of driving by without a second look, because you will be missing a wonderful Thai dining experience. Their lunch buffet is one of the best in town because they use smaller pans... More

Great food, good service and if you are looking for lunch options they serve a lunch time buffet that is just marvelous. Not as many options a the great Chinese buffets in town, if that is what interests you, but the flavor and quality of the food is in a whole different level.

Thai Cafe's buffet is extensive and reasonably priced. You will never leave disappointed with a great selection of delicious lunch items. Beware though that some items are Thai Heat! Service is friendly and efficient. When in SA, go out of your way Thai Café!

This was my first visit to Thai Cafe. For the record, the restaurant says the lunch buffet is available Monday through Saturday 11:00 am till 2:30 pm and at dinner only Friday and Saturday 5:00 pm to 8:30 pm. Closed Sunday. I have very high standards when it comes to food in general, but especially Thai cuisine having visited Thailand... More

I've lived in San Antonio for 15 years and this is the place for Thai food. The beef salad on the lunch buffet is one of the top 5 best thing I have eaten in my life. I now live in Austin and I still haven't found the beef salad that compares. I make sure I eat here when I... More

I said something about it and the reply was "a lamp can only do so much", really. The food was also made minimally spicy did not find heat in... More

This is the facility on Nacadoches Rd in NE San Antonio. Used to be that the food in the buffet serving trays was hot, at least very warm. I just tried it again at my wife's suggestion, but know why I haven't been back in years. Sure the entrees are tasty, but I like to sit down to a meal... More
