Had a very tasty meal of drunken noodles. The coconut cake was a great way to end the meal. Staff was friendly and attentive

I love Thai Cafe! Always friendly service and a great time. Good prices and portions as well. My favorite is the pineapple fried rice(extra cashews of course) and drunken noodles!!

I had a nice dinner with family at Thai Cafe! The service was great but food wasn’t exceptional. I got the yellow curry with pork and the flavors weren’t as robust as I’d hoped. A lot of vegetarian options as well!

Interesting menu choices designed with Thai flavors in mind plus the usual Thai dishes. Prices a bit high but generally worth the extra cash. The soft shell crabs are great!

We had the BEST catered lunch from Thai Cafe at our office last week! Gade was so wonderful to work with, too. She made sure all our dietary preferences were accounted for. Don't sleep on this place! Office favorites were: Chicken Pad Thai, Panang Chicken, Ginger & Mushroom tofu, and the Spicy Beef salad (she modified for our vegans to have tofu), mango sticky rice, and the most incredible coconut cake I've ever tasted (The chocolate cake was exceptional, too). You will love your meal and the service!

Only tried the pad Thai. I ordered it spicy but it wasn’t spicy, at all. Instead it was pretty sweet. The server was hard to come by, so by time I got the spices and lime to cut the sweetness it was cold, tasted better though. Even better I’m sure if it was hot in temp. I wouldn’t try the pad Thai again because of all the hassle. Might be willing to try a new dish here though, since it’s so close to my house.

Good Thai food in an unassuming setting. The fish dishes were particularly good. Dishes denoted by 2 chili icons 🌶️🌶️ were hot enough for me (for reference, I like spicy food).

Great value. The food is nice and we always enjoy the delicious curries. It's a great neighborhood restaurant.

This is a very good Thai restaurant. They do exactly what is needed to be done to provide quality food with food service. Although they miss the Wow factor, I would still recommend Thai Cafe to friends and family for those who appreciate good food.

Just picked up a meal from here. If I could give Thai Cafe 100-star rating I would! The ambiance is very nice and relaxing. I ordered the barbecue chicken with shrimp fried rice.....SUPERB! The chicken was cooked to perfection and very tender. The rice was good. Very good flavor. I was very impressed! The staff were friendly too!! As I was walking out, I overheard a little girl tell her mother how the Thai Cafe is her "Favorite restaurant." I will be back, and I strongly recommend Thai Cafe to anyone who loves EXCELLENT FOOD! Gade, thanks again! You're AWESOME...BIG HUGS!! :)

I was so happy to see so many gluten free options and I ordered the pad see ew which is my fave. Sadly, rather than a gluten free sauce, there was no sauce. Not what I was expecting. Next time I'll try the pad Thai since it is already gluten free.

Solid Thai food! Pad Thai is nice and portion sizes are large. I've tried most of the sides and didn't love them, but can recommend noodle and curry entres.
