We enjoyed an evening of Thai food with friends at this restaurant. The service was good, food was cooked as we liked and we generally thought it was a good place for an evening with friends. The portion sizes were good too. The server boxed up our leftovers for us too.

The coconut lemongrass soup is my favorite! We also love their chicken wings (they are the best I have ever had) and sticky rice, no place makes it better than here. The staff is extremely friendly.

Went after work and sat in the restaurant area. Appetizers and food are okay but not great. Others in my group love the food here although I'm not sure why. Cocktails were weak. As the night went on the bar area gets a little weird. Not likely to eat here again especially later at night. Owner and staff were nice.

This place is great if you like authentic tasting Thai food made by friendly staff. The restaurant is pretty small and intimate. The owner came over to ask what we were having and if we liked it. There is a cute bar as you walk in serving Thai beers too. The place isn't what I would call 'smart' but if... More

This place could be a fun place to hang out on a Friday afternoon. Cheap beers in happy hour and nice food, often with a lively crowd. I've also eaten here on a weekend when it's been quieter. However, some of the staff are a little crazy and will keep you entertained.

I went by myself after work. The restaurant was closed but the bar was open. I sat at the bar and asked for the happy hour. After a while, just before the kitchen open, I ask for a soup with shrimps and coconut. It was really good. I'll go back soon.

We went in, before reading any comments. Yes the place is a bit odd. Looks like a lonely heart bar and the bar staff really takes good care . But we have been here for the food. And the food is good. To be honest. Surprisingly good. We went their after work and got the meals just in normal time... More

This is a Thai restaurant which turns into a bar after 10pm. (They stop serving food at 10) The food is prepared by Thai cooks. Depending who is cooking, you may get different versions of the same dish on different nights. The bar closes at 2am and the crowd can vary from calm and quiet to loud and intense. Everyone... More

The place is full of regulars and so has a pretty good atmosphere. The staff are hilarious and good place for a laugh. Only had starters shared amongst the table and they were pretty good (not as good as the Thai Bistro which gets my nod in Houston). Naam Khao is more like a local than a place to visit... More
