If you have had your fill of greasy fried food and bar food, the the Golden Triangle Thai Kitchen is a great choice. Working on a family budget for 5, outside of your greasy foods and bar foods there are not a lot of options here without spending $20-$25 or higher per person. We ordered three meals which came to...

Golden Triangle is a Thai restaurant that my be the top eatery on the Island. But since there is nowhere to rate house rentals here on TripAdvisor, let me say that you can contact the owners of a rental gem called the "Blue House" through the restaurant (Same family owns both) or you can find the house on VROB among...

We being vegetarians, had the pad thai, yellow curry, fried rice. The food was decent but not excellent. It was hot and fresh. The portion size was big. They have a buffet style during lunch.

The Golden Triangle, while lacking in "ambiance" more than makes up for that with absolutely DELICIOUS food and very generous portions. Service is impeccable. Pretty much everything on the menu is absolutely wonderful-- but if you really want a treat go with one of the fried rices, pad thai or the curry anything. Everything is super fresh and you gan...

Let address the title right away. I like some heat, short of searing, in my Thai, and that was pretty much lacking here. The dishes are starred 2 or 3 stars, but as there is no official scale, that doesn't say much. Most Thai places I go top out at four or five stars. So delicious, but not spicy. We... More

Really tasty, fresh, reasonably priced food, and hefty portions. Friendly, quick, service. Didn't hesitate about going back the next night. Can't understand why this place was so quiet - well worth a visit in Friday Harbor.
