This place had awful service, and the food cost about double what it should have. The waiters barely spoke english, and were not very well trained (as one example, when they brought out our main dishes they did not clear away the empty plates from our appetizers). Also, with the exception of the Pad Thai, the food was disappointing. Definitely avoid this place. Also inconvenient because they only accept cash as payment.

Although it's in a strip mall, this place has nice ambiance and good food. Although it bills itself as "Thai" the restaurant seemed clearly to be Vietnamese. And as it turned out, the Pho was awesome . . . so were the Vietnamese spring rolls. The service was a bit slow but the staff was very friendly. In a pretty "meat and potatoes" part of the world, this place was a nice change of pace. It might be a bit pricey for a family of 6, but for two or four adults, it's actually quite reasonable.

Unlike some of the other reviewers, I was not impressed with Thai Sapa – far from it. We found the food to be overpriced, bland, and more akin to Vietnamese than Thai. Perhaps that is because the chefs are Vietnamese and the owner a Caucasian. There didn’t appear to be a Thai working in the place.

There were 5 of us in our party, 4 of them Asians, and not one of us liked the food, including the appetizers (eggrolls and satay that, to our tastes, seemed of the frozen and then reheated variety).

To begin with we requested that our entrees be served spicy – 7 on a scale of 10. When the waitress informed us that spicy food isn’t good for you, we knew we were in the wrong place, but we stuck it out anyway. Even though we requested our dishes be spicy, every one of them arrived very bland – and all of them loaded with broccoli, something that wouldn’t happen in a real Thai restaurant. When the waitress later asked us how everything was, our party was not critical, but certainly less than enthusiastic. From then on, we got the cold shoulder from the waitress.

When it came time to pay our bill we were shocked at the price, even though we carefully reviewed the menu before ordering. The bill came to over $100. This is because we were charged for 5 separate teas (because we were a party of 5), even though we only had two small pots of tea. Then, the final slap in the face came in the form of a 15 percent “service charge.” When I politely asked the owner of the restaurant about this, he became very brusque and very abrupt, as though I had somehow insulted him. I asked if the “service charge” would apply to even a party of two, and he told me that it would, and that it was indicated on the menu. None of us saw this on the menu, but we will take him at his word. What we won’t do, however, is ever return to this awful restaurant. If you’ve ever had real Thai, you’ll know immediately that this is far from the real thing.

This Thai restaurant serves fresh, interesting and tasty dishes. We ate here twice whilst visiting Zion National Park and enjoyed both meals very much. We can't compare it to much else in Springdale but it was better (in our opinion) than our meal at Pizza & Noodle. The owners are friendly and helpful.

Whilst its location may not entice you in and its not in the centre of town this Thai restauarant was a real find for us. Great change from regular menu of burgers, pasta, mexican and pizza.
Springdale roll had more fresh herbs than we had eaten for weeks anfd the edamane were green unlike the ones we saw served on the table next to us at the Spotted Dog Cafe which were brown and either overcooked or past their sell by.

Fried rice with chicken and pad thai were both tasty and the Thai Coco curry was popular with my son.
Homemade Pecan Pie was a great ending.

We sat outside and enjoyed the sillouettes of zion from the courtyard.
