We got heaps of delicious food! Not the most atmospheric of dining rooms, but they do take out. My family shared the delicious pineapple fried rice, and they weren't skimpy on the meat - it was full of large shrimp. We also had the shrimp in a hot pot, which was good, but not outstanding. The sweet and sour and... More

This is not a place to go to for fancy food: it is a place to go to for good food. I have never had a bad meal here. My son -- who has backpacked throughout Southeast Asia -- tells me that Twisted Noodle (where we have eaten many times) is the best Thai restaurant he's been to outside of... More

The Twisted Noodle serves some of the best Thai food I ever had, including some I had in Asia The casual atmosphere adds to the added enjoyment of a different cuisine's "comfort food." The soup is killer-- so tasty, warm and satisfying. I have enjoyed every dish tasted.

We went for a family dinner and everyone said their dishes were good. The wait staff was very nice and attentive. We had edemame and spring rolls for apptizers. I had sweet and sour veggies with tofu for my meal. The description mentioned cucumbers as an ingredient, but I never found them. Again, it was good, just not great.

The soup looked and tasted like dirty dish water. The chicken in the soup was dry, tough and disgusting. Its dirty and gross in there. Never again.

This is true Thai food, intense flavored dishes, wonderful aromas and definitely spicy (their levels of spicy are serious) so be sure to state your preference. Reasonably priced for their portions with a very casual setting. If you like Thai food you will not be disappointed. Everything we've eaten here has been DELICIOUS!

By chance we had dinner, with my son, at this Thai restaurant. Not a lot of fancy amenities, but none were really needed. The food was superb! We each had something different, but we all raved. From the Thai soup to the entree, the food was hot (and spicy hot for my wife), served well, and the continuing attention was... More

Was pleasantly surprised at the experience. It was the name that attracted us to the place. The food was excellent and the service very friendly and helpful.

pad thai had a strange taste. noodle soup okay but nothing special. Would not make a special trip back here. But it's a chain so average food to be expected. Service friendly. Atmosphere casual.
