“Can't beat this Thai”
Reviewed July 5, 2012

Lek's has become an institution in town. Providing some of the best sushi (at reasonable prices) and a varied menu of Thai food in varying levels of heat makes this the "go to" restaurant for locals and visitors alike.

“Great Thai”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

Great Thai in Montgomery. Neat to sit outside and watch the trains roll by. They also serve very fresh and good Sushi rolls (think California Sushi Roll). Plenty of room for a large group and great service both times I visited.

“Very good food.”
Reviewed June 20, 2012

Located in the Historical area of Montgomery. When I was there, there was a sign notifing people of a guided trip to be made by the owner. Sounded like the perfect way to visit Asian countries.

“Slow, poor service.”
Reviewed June 17, 2012

The restaurant is in a nice building and we enjoyed sitting on the patio in the evening. Our drink orders were taken immediately by friendly staff. Once we had our drinks, we ordered appetizers and main dishes. About 10-15 minutes went by before the 'Bama Crunch Rolls arrived (Very good), and then we waited another 20 minutes for the main dishes to arrive. We were all semi-impressed with the food... it was good, but not what others had raved over. We ate our food and sat for about 20 minutes after our plates were cleared from the table for a check. the check took another 10 minutes to clear. this outing lasted approximately 1 hour and 45 minutes total. Our drinks were allowed to sit empty frequently. The restaurant wasn't busy at all either, which puzzled us. We could never figure out what was taking so long. The worst part of the slow service was the 20% gratuity added to the check automatically. 20%! I won't be returning.

“Delicious, but painfully slow service”
Reviewed June 16, 2012

Excellent, fresh tasting food. Duck curry at medium spice wasn't very spicy. But, the food was really, really good. Service, however, was friendly but VERY slow throughout the night. A 45-50 minute meal at most places turned into a 1 hour, 20 minute meal just because of the delays--10 minutes to just pick up our credit card and run it!
