We were looking for a place to have lunch before our Fenway Park tour and didn't want the typical bar food. So we found this restaurant which was only a few blocks away. I had the Honey Pork lunch combo with Veggie Rolls; daugher had the Gaprow Beef lunch combo with chicken spring roll; husband had Wonton Soup and Pad Thai. All the dishes were presented beautifully and delicious. The water even had a hint of lemon flavor and was refreshing. Service was attentive and exceptional. It is obviously a popular place for the locals as it filled up quickly by the time we finished. We would definitely come back if we're in this area again.

We stumbled upon this restaurant while using restaurant.com and decided seeing that it was so close to Fenway Park(walking distance) we would give it a try before the game. We were not disappointed, the service was attentive and friendly. The food was as good as I've had in any Thai restaurant in the northern New England area. Considering the restaurant being so close to Fenway and in Boston the prices were quite reasonable and the portions very large. We tried three appetizers, we really enjoyed the "yummy lettuce wraps" and chicken satay. I had the cashew nut chicken for dinner, which was beautifully presented in half of a pineapple with decorative carrot roses as garnish. The vegetables were sauteed to a perfect crunch and the dish included plenty of chicken. Other members of my party had the green mermaid chicken which was described as delicious, the three stooges which was full of beef, chicken and shrimp in a light and flavorful plum sauce, and Sri Rachi dish which had ample amounts of shrimp, salmon, clams, scallops and calamari. I would absolutely go to Thaitation again before coming down for a Red Sox game, I wish we lived closer. Give it a try you will not be disappointed!

Over all a bit pricy for Thai food but the portions were big and the food was good!

The waitstaff was excellent and super friendly! They knew what 'gluten free' meant (hard to find sometimes) and were very knowledgeable about the menu and my water glass was never empty! I am a HUGE water drinker at dinner and they were constantly refilling my glass, never had to ask once !

The eggdrop soup was good, served nice and hot. The Masaman Curry, with
Butternut squash, potato, onion, carrot, red pepper, green pepper, carrot, coconut milk and
Masaman curry (with No peanuts) was delicious.
I ordered the pineapple fried rice with shrimp and chicken, which came served in half a pineapple! It was a huge portion, this shrimp wasn't that good, but the rest of the dish was delicious!
I would definitely go back again

We were headed on foot to Trattoria Toscana last Thursday for lunch, not knowing the neighborhood at all, after a visit to the Isabella Gardner Museum. Fenway area. It was closed! Good thing, because we spied this Thai place across the street and said, “I can do Thai, can you do Thai?” Seated near the street window, they informed us we’d be ordering from the dinner menu since it was 3PM. A little disappointed but no worries. Comfortable restaurant, small but not crowded environment, nice colors and décor. My Thai iced tea was killer! Pretty too. My friend chose caramelized salmon noodle. Great big piece of perfect salmon atop a bed of crispy shallots, veggies and vermicelli in a light peanut sauce. Very happy. My duck panang curry, ordered mild, had the classic curry flavor with a hint of spicy peanut sauce, kafir lime leaves and basil made it a standout. Duck was tender and plentiful, definitely not a half duck though. Pleasant table service with lots of smiling. Would go again and again if I lived in Boston!
