Our favorite takeout spot and also a quick meal close to home. It's a small, unassuming restaurant in a mini mall atmosphere but the food is always prepared well and perfectly spiced. Try the Pad Thai or any of the curries. Excellent!

The atmosphere is a little 1950-ish but the food is great. They added just the right amount of spice to make my food delicious!

The Pad See Ew were not your typical rice noodles. They were thinner than standard - while the dish was okay in flavor. However, the Red Curry (which I requested at Medium) was so hot that we couldn't eat it, and I really like spicy...More

Th Thai Cafe is a little hole in the wall, in a strip mall on Munson Ave. just west of the Denos Museum. Not much atmosphere, but the food is fresh, flavorful and outstanding. We've tried several Thai restaurants in TC and always end up...More
