Great thai – I love the curries, and I like them hot! The food is excellent, the only improvement could be the atmosphere- the decor really does not speak to how great the food is here.
Authentic Thai – I hear they have made some changes recently. This was my first time here and thoroughly enjoyed my Red Curry. Just a 3 on the spice level was quite spicy for me. Food is excellent, not so much for the ambiance or service....
Authentic and Fresh – My favorite Thai place. Sometimes the service can be h i t or m i s s - but the food never is. I have always loved every single thing I have ordered here (although they have been out of things on the menu on more than one occasion). And the lime-chili sauce is to die for!
Good for the price – The food is good, but I wouldn't say it's 9.4 (the current rating) good. I'd recommend if you were nearby and wanted something quick.
Left hungry and tired of waiting – When we got there the restaurant was not crowded. We waited an hour for our food. The waiter never came back to give us any updates. They finally brought one of our dishes out and said the other was not ready and we walked out. Will never go back.
Good quality, bad quantity – I would have to say that the food tastes great. However, the owner does not like to serve a lot of food so you will leave hungry. For the price, the portions are not generous at all. When I go there with a friend, we have to order three dishes and it ends up being around $15 per person.
The place is never packed, so your food is served on time. I'd love to eat there more often, but I feel like I'm not getting my monies worth when I go there.
If you are a super light eater and not very hungry give it a try but, don't count on leaving satiated.
Authentic, filling Thai cuisine makes up for the no-frills setting. – In Short
A truly hidden find, Thai Village is nestled within a busy strip mall, obvious only because of its red sign. The plain interior in no way reflects the food's ethnic authenticity, although figurines and fans modestly represent aspects of Thai culture. Small, intimate tables fill the restaurant, while a spacious bar takes up the windowed corner. Regular customers come for mee krob with scallions and red peppers and pad thai with shrimp and tofu.
Great customer service and GREAT Thai food – Whoever thinks that Thai Village has bland food obviously did not know what to order and has no clue what real thai food tastes like. The Gai Lard Prik is the best sweet and sour chicken I have ever tasted (and I've been to Thailand). Great spice balanced with a sweet tamarind and plantain sauce. There may not be any beer there, but the great thing is you can bring your own! Much cheaper than paying $4 a beer at other restaurants. The chef Scott makes soup fresh for me when I order it, even though it may not be on the menu. The fresh rolls are a tasty treat for the vegetarians out thereI highly recommend this restaurant.
Very dissapointing – Hidden yes....worth looking for....no. The only redemable aspect of this restaurant was the service but it was only fast because we were the only people there on a friday night! The food was dissapointing, and over-priced for how much food you get. With so many good reviews I expected a great meal for over $15 a person, and to have some leftovers....We left with neither. Goes to show that just because the other reviewers have been going there for 5 and 8 years......doesn't mean they know good cheap Thai food.
P.S. as of 6-16-06 they no longer have a liquor license
We have been frequenting this place for the last few years. Excellent food & service make us return often.
