“Good food, not so good price!”
Reviewed January 26, 2012

The ambiance is very cold and simplistic, but doesn't quite arrive at zenlike. The food is good but the price is a little steep. Good place for lunch, though

“Great food. Really nice space.”
Reviewed November 27, 2011

I've eaten here several times and loved each meal (lunches and dinners). The menu is really fun to explore and I've tried several of the delicious specials. Usually 3 or 4 or us order an appetizer or two, then four entrees and share a dessert or two. We share everything. Cocktails are really good. Love the Mai Tai. Nice wine list. And the whole setting is really nice -- both inside and out. I'm not a big fan of Reno dining, but Cafe de Thai is an exceptional escape from the noise and glitz and smoke. Thank you Cafe de Thai. And thanks my Reno friends for turning me onto this great little spot.

“Hands Down - The Best Thai Food in Reno”
Reviewed November 10, 2011

We love Thai Food and Cafe DE Thai prepares some of the best Thai food you will ever eat. The quality of the ingredients is excellent and their Pad Thai is the best I have ever tasted.
The restaurant has a full bar and a good selection of wines to accompany your meal. The Chef is a graduate of the New York Culinary Institute and he obviously takes great care in preparing his food. The kitchen does a very good job with shrimp and all of their shrimp entrees are great. Thai curries here are wonderful and they offer them with either chicken, pork, beef or duck in red curry, yellow curry or green curry. Vegetable dishes feature locally grown or organic produce and non-meat eaters will easily find something to enjoy on the menu. This is easily the best Thai restaurant in Reno and our out of down guests all love the food at Cafe DE Thai.

“Fantastic Thai in Reno!”
Reviewed September 13, 2011

I had low expectations for Reno, and was unexpectedly delighted at finding this gem. It was recommended by a local.

This is not a typical Thai restaurant. The dishes sound familiar, but the quality was superb - never heavy and sweet, as often happens at cheaper Thai restaurants in this country. The setting was also very atypical - sleek & modern.

Also, save room for dessert. They are wonderful - they were very creative and delicious.

Overall, a wonderful experience - and a very welcome find in Reno.
