There is no vietnamese cuisine here! – You really have to go out of your way to get Vietnamese food in this town! After driving halfway across town to satiate my need for bowl of Vietnamese Bun I found no Vietnamese on the menu at all! The Thai food was tasty, however. But, I'll stay on my side of town if I want Thai.
This word-of-mouth establishment depends more on good service and even better food than decor. – In Short
Vaguely tropical and altogether inconspicuous from the exterior, fans visit for the food. Start with the thin, flaky spring rolls wrapped in lettuce leaves and dunked in the piercing fish sauce. Proceed on to the tauntingly spicy curry chicken in coconut milk with onions, or, the unbeatable pad Thai. Delicate vermicelli noodles wallow in the midst of beef, pork, chicken and shrimp, with broccoli and snow peas for company. Save room for dessert: the coconut ice cream with sticky rice is an urban legend unto itself.
Wonderful – When we try something new, my wife and I read the recommendations from other readers. This restaurant was highly rated and when we did try it this past weekend we were not dissapointed. The buffet for lunch was wonderful. The staff were friendly and courteous. The food was delicious, well-prepared and well-presented. Nothing fancy about the decor, but it is organized and very clean. Once can tell that the owners keep the place in order. Finally, one final note, it was inexpensive. We will definitely visit this place again.
Very Authentic – Great food, big portions and good service. This is a great restaurant to try if you were ever wondering what authentic Thai food tasted like.
The ONLY place for the BEST Thai – Thai Cafe surpasses every expectation I have. The food is authentic, aromatic, spicy, but heat levels can be adjusted to preference. Be aware, if you tell them hot and spicy.. it WILL be both! (hot enough to burn away the worse migraine) They have a terrific buffet, offering several vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes. But don't limit yourself only to the buffet, order from the menu and discover even more flavor-filled entrees. Don't overlook the fresh soups, split a pot or make it a meal. Prices are reasonable for large portions, but don't be afraid to order appetizers and dessert too! The spring rolls are terrific, and the sticky rice and coconut ice cream is a wonderful combination! I have eaten at Thai restaurants around the country and this is the best one both in freshness and flavor!
Best IN town – It is an amazing place to go to. The service is fast and good. The food is amazing. It is the best thai food in town by far. The food is soo good and authentic.
Best Thai in USA – I have been to many Thai restaurants around the country and most are not a tenth as good as this place. The panang is the best you will find anywhere, their appetizers are fresh and wonderful, curries are flavorful and spicy, and the sticky rice is heavenly. And, in almost five years I have frequented this place, the quality has not changed.
Thai cafe is not just the best Thai restaurant in SA (and so far in my travels the country as well), it is one of the best restaurants overall in the city. I have brought many people to this place over the past 5 years since I was introduced to the place, and they all agree it is hands down the best Thai restaurant in town.
