OK, first, I love Thai food, so I think I've eaten in just about every Thai restaurant in the area (including some imposters). Thai Villa is the real deal. Try everything, but for sure the Kanom Jeep!

I don't know if this is authentic Thai or not, it's delicious. I usually get the Thai Villa Noodles, or Ka Pow, both are great. I also get the Num Tok appetizer, which is always great. The service is excellent, and though it's not fancy at all, it's a pleasant place to have lunch or dinner.

Thai Villa, hands down, has the best Cashew Chicken anywhere. I've tried it all over the country, and nobody compares. I get it "two-peppers" and the spice & heat is just right. It's the sauce that's different. Service was excellent, fast, and friendly. Great food experience.

Excellent Thai food. Had a super meal. I hit spicy Thai food - this was authentic Thai food. You have to be careful - Thai food is HOT - yummmm.

We went to the Thai Villa many times over the past several years. We always had a great experience. The wait staff was excellent and spoke Thai. My friend spent years in Thailand and spoke Thai and would talk to the wait staff explaining what he wanted and the service and food was very good and properly prepared.They apparently changed...

The food is just OK here. The wait staff is overburdened. The basil rolls were quite good, but the entrees with veggies and tofu were not up to par. In fact they had a rather strange smell that made them a bit unpalatable. I would look elsewhere for Thai food.

Ordered Chicken Mussaman for take out. Large container with tons of sauce, limited chicken & potato pieces.. (container in pic was filled to the top with sauce) Flavor was good- nothing more than average.

We used to frequent this place years ago and for some reason just haven't been there in many years. We were looking for someplace to get a good asian meal. We were close so decided to stop at Thai Villa. What a great choice, we got there just after they opened at 5pm. I had the chicken massaman which is... More

This isn't fancy dining but it is delicious food. We go here regularly for business luncheons. Haven't had one person go with me yet that disputes the claim that it is the best. Wide variety of foods so something for everyone.

I again dined at Thai Villa this past Thursday night. I ordered the Pad Thai with shrimp, with added spicy level 6-7. The Pad Thai was on par with the best I have ever been served. I personally told the Chef it was great.
