I've been frequenting this place for over 13years now and today would be my last visit. Definitely not what it used to be. Our Pad Thai tasted sweet and ketchup-y. The spicy crispy beef was not spicy. Both meals were served lukewarm. No reason for that. Perhaps we became a custom to authentic Thai food after our visit to Thailand.... More

You always get such great value for your money. The bento boxes are the best. They also have amazing sushi and general tao chicken. Would recommend, you definitely get your moneys worth!!

I am generally pretty pedestrian when it comes to food, so when we planned a work outing at Satay on the Road, I was understandably leery. That being said, the service was fantastic, with meals being prepared very quickly for our large, group lunch. The Satay Roll was phenomenal, as was the hot and sour soup. Would definitely recommend as... More

Satay's lunch specials, besides being incredible value are delicious and plentiful. Highly recommended are the Cashew chicken, and Oodles of noodles. Delicious and incredible value (under $15) with tax.

Good food, prompt service - good Thai fare. Especially fond of their cold fresh vegetable rolls and their shrimp soup.

We eat here every time we are in the area. We live north of the city 1/ 1/2 away. Order the same thing every time, wait staff knows what we want and is there in minutes.

There are items on the menu that can be made vegetarian though not indicated, such as the Thai coconut mushroom soup, not just the hot & sour, so ask. Vegetarian platter ok as an app, butterfly shrimp, okay, Thai spicy noodles great! Accommodating w.r.t. extra peanuts, etc. Service a bit slow but friendly

The food is always consistently delicious. The pad thai is very good (not greasy, cooked just right). The portions are generous. I would recommend going for dinner. You always leave satisfied.

The food was not horrible, but it was not outstanding nor exceptional, as was recommended by a friend. I was expecting authentic indonesian food, since this was what it was being marketed as to me, but I was sorely disappointed with OK food.

Between the table we had; pad Thai, crispy spicy beef, spring rolls, spicy noodles. The food was drenched in sauce. The crispy beef was very chewy and very sweet. No kick in it at all, as the menu describes. 3/5 meaning average. Not bad food, but nothing memorable. Great service, and great location.
