Great service, very friendly people. Very reasonably priced. Offers hormone-free chicken, pork or organic tofu. Ordered the crispy chicken roll and red curry with pork. The crispy chicken roll might as well have been called the cole slaw roll because I could not taste any chicken at all. The red curry was okay but way too salty.

In our quest to try out more Thai places in the area, we went to visit Bunn Thai the other day. We ordered our usual Tom Yum, Tom Kha, Larb gai, Yum Woonsen and Gai kaprao. Both soups were delicious. The broths were great and there was an abundance of fresh veggies which made them superior to most. The larb... More

A Happy Cow find, this restaurant was a fantastic choice for both my meat-eating husband and vegetarian-self. His Heaven on Earth was his favorite meal of our trip. The fish was soft and juicy, but crisp on the outside. The sauce was sweet and creamy. They brought him extra spice so he could make it as hot as he wanted.... More

Came to this little restaurant with a GF. The restaurant is small but nicely decorated with cultural icons, and CLEAN. We ordered: vegetable Pad Thai, Ginger Chicken, brown rice and Fresh Rolls for appetizer. The fresh rolls, wrapped in thin rice wrappers were exquisite! The herbs were noticeably fresh, as were the lettuce. They sprinkled toasted coconut shreds over the... More

Very vegetarian, vegan, and GF-friendly, fresh local foods, much organic produce and meats---what's not to love?! My lunch of green papaya salad and Tom Kha soup with chicken was spot-on in terms of flavor and quantity. Instead of being asked if we wanted "mild, medium, or hot" and leaving that subjectively up to the chef, the chiles and sauces were... More

My friend and I visited Bunn Thai Bistro for dinner, and we were both pleasantly surprised. While they had the standard Thai fare, they also had several unique items on the menu like strawberry and mango spring rolls. Everything we ordered (strawberry spring rolls included) was amazing. The service was friendly too. Highly recommended.
