“Who knew?”
Reviewed September 13, 2012

A small town tucked away in the northwest corner of Washington state (Ferndale) has somehow managed to acquire two Thia restaurants. We walked into one and had a look at a pretty mundane menu before deciding to try the other. I cannot speak for the food quality in the former, but the meal we had at the Luxe Thai was a happy accident for both of us.

The fresh roll appy was a delight with great flavours and textures forbidding you to stop eating long enough to tell your companion how tasty it was. Strands of spicy, lemony Thai basil jumped out and proved a perfect counterpoint to the noodle, veg, and prawn filling at every bite.

Each meal can be customed spiced with a range of 1-5 being offered. The fiery end of the scale isn't a barn burner, but is still quite pleasant. Portion sizes are large enough to make the average person walk away feeling full, but not uncomfortably so and the staff seems genuinely happy that you chose to eat there. The decor isn't anything to write home about... a rather small space with about a dozen tables much like a billion other places you've been to, but the food is very, very good. Try the Thai coffee or tea. You'll like it.

“Luxe Thai! Great food!”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

I, too, was confused by TripAdvisor calling this restaurant "Rock Thai". I was quite sure I knew all the restaurants in town (it's not that big a place) and had never seen this one. Also, one of my favorites, Luxe Thai, was not listed. Mystery solved.

This food is heaven - perfectly spiced, large portions, always fresh. Service couldn't be better. Prices are a bargain for what you get. This is as good or better than any of the Thai places in Bellingham. They have recently moved out of the Quonset hut into a more "normal" unit next door, and I must admit I haven't been in since the move.

“Greatly improved from a year ago”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

A year ago this restaurant was in a Quonset hut - but we just got carry out. It was OK. This year they had a pleasant store-front restaurant and we ate in. The food was better although we didn't like it as much as the Thai restaurant we frequently visit in DC - but that may have been because our daughter (we took her, her husband, and two older children out to eat) requested mild spicing - 1 chilli on a range from 1 to 5. However, it was tasty and creatively inexpensive. The price for six (including a bottle of wine, 1 beer and sodas for both kids) was $105 including tax and tip.
