“what food?”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

Ordered for a concert, when I opened the box it was like 'what food'? Spent a fortune, like every other place in town it is overpriced. Then I found Ker Lab Thai does specials for concerts, for $5 really delicious, filling food. And you can see it!

“Another Mom and Pop shop in town - worth a visit”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

Tom and Freda are super friendly, their food is always fabulous - and if you're lucky you get to meet their young daughter - cute as a button. Well worth a visit

“Quality Thai Food”
Reviewed January 21, 2013

We decided to have dinner here, while visiting Port Townsend for the weekend, after reading the positive reviews it had. For the most part, I agree with them 100%. The food was served hot, the quality was fresh and the ambiance and service was welcoming. We ordered the spring rolls as appetizer and the flavor was wonderful. Could have been a little larger rolls but good in taste. One of us ordered the sweet and sour chicken and it was very tasty. The other ordered chicken "angel's swimming" which is a bed of spinach with peanut sauce. The sauce had a good taste but was a little too thick and pasty for our liking. Thin the sauce and they'd be "spot on". All in all, loved our meal!

“Very nice Thai”
Reviewed January 9, 2013

This is a very nice casual Thai restaurant in the downtown area. The owners are a nice young couple from Thailand . The husband is the chef and the wife handles the dining room. I didn't get their names , but the wife is just delightful (did not meet the husband , but I'm sure he is nice too!) . Very friendly service ...very helpful in selecting a dish I would enjoy.

The dish suggested was excellent . All fresh ingredients, and very nice presentation.

Because of the friendly service , wonderful food , and pleasant dining room , I will definitely be back to try more of their tasty creations. (They do take out too).

The location of the restaurant is just a block off the main street , down by City Hall. Lots of parking nearby.

“Unique and Great Good”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

We had Thai food so many times before, but, this restaurant was so unique to us because their menue included something hard to find at any other Thai restaurants. We followed the owner's recommendation to try noodle with soup and a special yaki which would taste just like the authentic day-to-day food in Thailand. And, we were delighted with the delicious food and the experience. The staffs were very friendly and helpful. The prices were very reasonable.
