I was told this tiny hole in the wall had great food. And it does! The owners are a couple (he's Italian and she is Thai). Well you can have great inexpensive Italian wine with great Thai food. Try the crispy duck and the whole fish with green chilis. The chicken satay is out of this world. Great value. Will... More

We were recommended to come to this restaurant by some locals and we are so glad we did! Very local and unpretentious. Our busboy who seemed to be the actual server was so welcoming and friendly. We had the soup to start with which was absolutely delicious. Mixed with coconut, fantastic value at $5 and bursting with flavors. I had... More

I love this place is small and local. It beaming with flavor and friendly service. Full of locals and repeat customers. The place is cozy so you prepare that you may need to wait a little bit for a table. The service was a little slow but the dishes that came out of the kitchen were fresh and authentic. The... More

This place has seriously fresh made from scratch Thai food! Thai rolls were so good. This place has good fresh food, good portion sizes at a good price! The assortment of Asian beer and wines is good too! This place is not fancy but it is a local foodie gem. Even on Monday evenings there is a line to be... More

Another great repeat performance by the folks at Ricky Thai. This trip: Pork Spring rolls for an appetizer followed by Red Curry with seafood and veggies served with a side of white rice. Yummy. $25.00 Not too shabby. The Red Curry was bursting with flavors. Every spoonful had something other than the delicious broth, a piece of seafood, or a... More

I went because of the good Trip advisor ratings and had a very positive experience. They have a large Asian beer selection that I wasn't familiar with. I asked for a beer with some body and was given a Red Ale 9% alcohol that was great. Went on week night and was seated immediately. Shared a Drunken Noodles and Masaman... More

A friend of mine was in town and said he and his fiancé had been to Ricky Thai a number of times and never had a bad meal. That's a pretty good endorsement and after reading other reviews, I thought I should try it. Now, I don't live far from Ricky Thai but it's not in an area I travel... More

Finally a good Thai place in our area! It's been a struggle to find authenticity and quality. But Ricky's is the real thing. Most places are not real Thai. Just Chinese masquerading as Thai and covered in grease. This place is really good. The dining room is small and the portions are big (family size). Well worth the prices.

My girlfriend makes me take her here every time she visits me. I have tried half of the menu by now and I have to say that it is some of the most authentic Thai food I have ever had. (I have been to Thailand). Definitely get the Red Curry. You will not regret it.... unless you ask for hot... More
