We love Thai food and have been to many Thai restaurants in North Seattle- this is one of the best. The green curry with avocado and shrimp (a special) was outstanding and the red curry salmon was also very good. Nice atmosphere, good service. It's a bit spendy (dinner for 2 was $50 including 2 drinks and tip) but worth it.

A great thai restaurant needs a great peanut sauce. Some are only OK, Pen Thai's is fantastic. The few other dishes I've tried are equally good. Bothell is changing, Pen Thai is part of its new face.

Very impressed. Nice decor, great service, and wonderful food. Maybe they were overstaffed when we went, but the service was on-the-ball. Three different people attended to our table throughout the meal. The ingredients were fresh, and this might just be the best Thai food in the Seattle area. I've eaten a lot of Thai food in my days, and this place stands out. Only drawback is location--Bothell is a 20 minute drive for us, but we'll probably still make our way out there again. It was also maybe 20% spendier than I'd normally pay for Thai food, but that won't deter a second visit.

We live within walking distance of downtown Bothell and frequent Pen about once a week for dine-in or take out. While we are from Southern California originally and are used to delicious Thai food at half the price of Pen's fare, it is good enough to keep us coming back for more, and more, and more.
Our favorite dishes are the Phad See Iew, the seasonal Pumpkin Curry, and the Pen special soup. We are Thai food junkies, and recommend Pen to our friends often.
