“Best Asian Cooking Around”
Reviewed October 10, 2012

Linda's Thai Room serves the best Thai food I have had short of the authentic food I have had in Thailand. Linda is Thai and she presents a large food selection that is usually served to the table by her husband. Always cooked to order so it takes a little longer to be served but well worth the wait. The restaurant is an old building that gives a little of the old Burns atmosphere as well but decorated so that there is no mistake about its name. I recommend this place to the community and to anyone passing through who wants a more than expected quality and quantity of food.

“Thai one on in Burns”
Reviewed October 8, 2012 via mobile

The atmosphere is Eastern Oregon cafe, with the odd addition of a wall-sized video of Thai dancers. You get 2 menus- American and Thai. The Thai was very good and fresh. Service is glacially slow. Thankfully there were only 2 orders ahead of us. I would definitely recommend this place as long as it's not busy or if you're not in a hurry.

“Outstanding flavor”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

On a road trip in August 2012, my daughter and I ended the day in Burns, Oregon. The manager at the motel recommended Linda's Thai Room so we tried it. Although on Burns' main street, it had so little street presence that we passed it initially once without seeing it. The decor inside is modest and not Thai. However, all that was forgotten as soon as we tasted our food. Outstanding! Wonderfully fresh vegetables cooked perfectly. Succulent, tangy sauces. Perfect balance of flavors. Generous portions.

Upon inquiry, we found that Linda is the Thai cook in the kitchen. Her American husband is the server. The patrons appeared to be mostly locals. I think this restaurant is an undiscovered gem.
