“WHAT THAI FOOD”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2013

Having been born in Thailand and grown up eating thai food I find the reviews for this restaurant to be off the mark. The food is a poor imitation of Oriental fare and the flavors are lacking. the nuances of Thai cusine. The place is small service is so so. There is a total lack of Thai charm.

“Fair”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

I am always excited for Thai food, the flavor explosion is just amazing.

So as per usual when I saw Thai delight I was excited to try it out. Parking is tough, its a small place, and tables are limited. Its also quite cold and drafty due to the door being right in the middle.

Perhaps it was not their number 1 chef working the Saturday night I went, but the only flavor that came through again and again was fish sauce. Thai mango salad, tasted primarily of fish sauce, dipping sauce for dumplings tasted like fish sauce, Red curry tasted like red curry, but the chicken w thai basil tasted like fish sauce.

Its true there arent many Thai restaurants to choose from in that area so beggars cant be choosers right ? Still though I doubt I'd go back . Maybe, but Id have to be right in the area.

“The EXPRESS BUS TO FLAVORTOWN!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 24, 2013

This small new restaurant has wonderful food and great service. It is a SMALL place - but typical of a good Thai restaurant! It might take a few minutes to get a table - but it is well worth it. The smells and tastes here are totally authentic Thai. The wait staff is really GOOD. They take perfect care oif you and continuously check on your table - making sure you are HAPPY. I have travelled to Thailand more than 50 times - this is the REAL DEAL. I true ride on the express bus to FLAVORTOWN!

“Almost perfect...the ambiance does not do justice to the great food and wonderful service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2013

Nothing more needs to be added: fantastic, authentic Thai food served charmingly and efficiently. Incredibly priced - excellent value. What a shame that the room is small, with awkward booths, elecric fireplace - as non-Thai a sorrounding as can be imagined.
Other than that - not to be missed!
