“Out of the Way Place for Best Thai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 29, 2012

You have to know where this place is, but it is well worth finding. You can get a great meal without worrying about breaking your budget. The food is always good except sometimes the onions on the Star Thai Salad can be "hot", but the dressing makes up for the heat. Some of our favorites are the Fried Chili Paste, Spicy Fried Rice, Fried Rice with Pineapple & Cashews, and Green Curry. Always check out their specials. They are always great. Save room for dessert, if they have Black Rice Pudding. It is sweet with nutty undertones. And you can never say enough good things about the owner and his family. They make the whole experience pleasant and make you feel like you are that home at your Thai dinner table.

“Best Thai Food outside of Thailand”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

Star Thai is the best Thai Food served outside of Thailand. I haved lived and eaten all over the world and Star Thai is one of the best places to eat. Great FRESH food at a good price. Friendly staff. We eat here at least once a week and it is always great to walk in the door to a smiling face that is glad to see you. Once inside the smell instantly gets my mouth watering. This place is GREAT!

“Hands down the best Thai”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2012

This Thai gem is our favorite! We have eaten at many Thai restaurants across the country and now are disappointed whenever we try any other place in the Denver area or elsewhere. If in town and love Thai food, make whatever effort necessary to dine or get take out at Star Thai. A humble place in a little strip mall. In my experience, those are usually the best ones anyway.

“Tai Food, a tiny peice of heaven”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Don't let the shabby look of this place turn you off. The decor is homey with plants at the entrance and there are pictures of family members on the wall. The food is fantastic! There is also a Chinese Food section on the menu so I've had nothing but positive experiences here. The Pad Thai and the curries are delish. Always fast, fresh, and served with a smile. Also, very cheap and the quality has always been top notch

We ordered Spring Rolls as an appetizer and they were crisp and tasty, there was sweet sauce that came with it that was a nice pairing with the basil, tofu, sprouts and cilantro. For dinner we had Pad Thai and Prik Pow Noodles. The Prik Pow Noodles had a bbq flavor to them, they were spicy, and warm with vegetables, wide noodles with shrimp. The Pad Thai was really quite good. There was acidity from lime and some sweetness, the noodles, bits of egg and green onion as well as fried tofu worked well together. It was great

I have tried almost all the Thai entrees on their menu and have never been disappointed. I have also tried almost every Thai restaurant in the area, and this is by far the best. If you like Thai food, you have to try them!

“Star Thai is Great for a Quick Meal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2012

Star Thai is a small restauarant without much atmosphere. They also do a lot of take-out/delivery business.
Food is really good and cooked to order. If you are in the mood for a quick dinner, try Star Thai instead of hitting a fast food joint. It will cost about the same and you can get in and out in the same amount of time.
The owners are really friendly and do a great job.
I highly recommend the Star Thai Noodles which is commonly known as Drunken Noodles. They are a bit inconsistent in their hotness scale. Sometimes medium hot can border on hot hot.
