“Slice of SE Asia in Almaty”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

We lived in SE Asia for 4 years and REALLY miss the food there versus Kazakhstan. That said, Thai did an excellent job of bringing the flavor and heat of SE Asian cuisine to Almaty. We ran the gamut of spring rolls, Tom Yam, sate, rice and noodles through fish and chicken. Thai did not disappoint. We asked for extra spice and got it! Drinks were done well, wine list was varied and solid and desserts were tasty. No one had a problem with the taste or prep of their food so I'm not going into specific dishes since that could change but the overall delivery was solid. We sat outside in the garden area during late summer and really enjoyed the atmosphere.

Go eat at this restaurant if you are in Almaty!

“Good food, horrible service”
Reviewed May 1, 2013

This rather posh restaurant offers good Asian food. The classical Thai dishes like green or red curry chicken are fresh and tasty as all the other dishes I tried. On the other side I didn't understand the pricing strategy of the restaurant. A classical Thai Tom Kha Gai soup is almost 20€, while other main dishes are cheaper than that. Seafood is insanely expensive as well.

Service is horrible. There are a lot of waiters, who always pretend to be busy although the restaurant is almost empty. Therefore we had to wait for the menu for 15 minutes, for the drinks until the main dishes arrived and so on...

“Thai”
Reviewed April 17, 2013

The food is outstanding (best Thai in town) and the Thai garden is great in summer but there are never people there so the atmosphere is not so good. It is quite expensive but if they could attract a crowd by leveraging the atmosphere or bringing the price down, they would make much more money and guests would enjoy it better
