It's Good one. Service and cleanliness are really good. Taste and quantity are up to Thai standards ✅

Really good! Service was helpful and the food hit just right. We had pad ped pla (sweet basil fish) which was colorful, sweet and spicy...it could have used a few more veggies though, and the fish lost its crispiness a bit in the sauce, but we finished it all because yum!. I was also very happy that the fish was catfish and not tilapia. That made for a more flavorful dish than tilapia ever dreamed. The Thai beef salad was fabulous with just enough heat to enhance the flavors of the beef (cooked medium) and sauce. Very tasty. One complaint: the ginger dressing on the salad was meh. A lot of ginger (A LOT of ginger) but no actual flavor to carry it. It was like a freshly grated ginger paste was dumped randomly on the romaine. We still miss Thai Lanna, but Thai Star left us with a really good taste in our mouths. Will visit again. 4.5 stars

I decided to get my Thai fix at Thai Star today since I had errands in the area. I haven't been to this place since it was Thai Lanna so I had no idea what to expect. Interior is nice and the employee I interacted with was friendly. The sanitation score was 92.5. It's still an A so I tried it anyway. It was lunch time however the dish I wanted was only available on the Dinner Menu. My pad see eww chicken takeout order took 10 to 15 mins to prepare. For dinner order, it was smallest container I've seen. It was likely a lunch container and it was not full. For $16, I expected more. Maybe there's the penalty for ordering off the dinner menu at lunch? There wasn't much dark soy sauce and there was very little wok hay. The flavor was okay but you could see from the color of the noodles something was missing. It needed more sauce. The combination high cost, small serving size and lack flavor of flavor will keep me from returning. I really how what I got wasn't the dinner container.

Tried them for the first time. Good portions but not as flavorful as we're used to. The sesame sauce was really good. My veggie spring rolls were undercooked 😔 We had drunken noodles and Basil fried rice but as I said before neither was as flavorful as we're used to.

Fresh, tasty food and a wide variety of options. A local gem that’s great as a takeout spot or to dine-in. Folks working there are very kind as well.

Great healthy and vegetarian options. They shredded vegetables instead of having noodles. Beautiful place too!

Excellent Thai option! Hands down the best I've had in the area. I've only had carry out so far but the restaurant is cute and clean inside. The food is fresh and tasty, and they heed the notes regarding spice for carry out. The quality of the proteins is excellent. I only wish they were open Sundays!

Yellow Curry and Spicey Papaya Salad!! Really, really good! Mel and I eat at the Thai Star as often as we can get in the area and we've never been disipointed with the food. The dinning room is always clean and the seating comfortable. Friendly? O yea. Great service, and with a friendly smile to!

I’ve been to many Thai restaurants all over the Eastern coast of the U.S. This clean and quaint experience is good for the mind, body, and soul. The food is top notch in flavor and always super fresh. Do yourself a favor and stop in!

Easily the best Thai food I’ve ever had! I’ve yet to be disappointed in a single meal and I’ve done a pretty deep dive into their menu. Give it a shot you won’t be disappointed! Do take care with your spice levels though, they aren’t afraid to make you some seriously spicy food.
