“Deep fried rubbish”
Reviewed December 27, 2012 via mobile

Very disappointed with the supposed Asian food in this restaurant. Our spring rolls were like battered sausages and the Pad Thai main was absolutely nothing like anything you would.find in Thailand. Meal complemented by drunk locals vomiting on the table...

“It's not Thai”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

With a name like Thaico, you'd think they'd have Thai food. The menu reads like they would, too, but the it's not. It's fusion, I guess. They have incredible drink specials, and by that I mean "too good to be true". I'm wary of any place that can stay afloat and somehow still give me reasonably priced 3x1 drinks. If you want Thai, check out Royal Thai about two blocks down, on the same street. (Walk in front of Juan Valdes and Ay Caramba and continue straight...you'll find it!) The owners are Thai, the place is beautiful, and the food is authentically delicious!

“Try to get service here”
Reviewed September 2, 2012

After reading some of the other reviews, I am glad we never got service there. We tried to go there three times, because it was busy and figured it was a good restaurant. We never had anyone help us to a table, so the third time we just sat down at a table. We managed to order drinks, but then nobody came and asked if we wanted something to eat. So we just left and went to the next door restaurant Lucia, which is an awesome restaurant.

“very average thai food”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

This is very average and basically bland thai food that works in a pinch if you are dying for some thing Thai-like. It is also overpriced.
