Six of us arrived on a slow Tuesday night and were seated immediately. The noise level with only three other tables was high due non absorbing sound decor. Ordered several dishes and they were served sporadically beginning with small delicious spring rolls and then a very spicy beef/pork salad (very good), then the excellent crispy garlic chicken, and other dishes....

Had a wonderful Thai meal in Bothell. This restaurant is in a renovated building on main street with floor to ceiling windows and beautiful exposed beams. We went on a Wednesday evening and there was plenty of parking available. The food is well prepared and the plates are large. The green papaya salad (Som Tam) was great! We had Heavenly... More

After all that I heard about this place, I was not really impressed by the pad thai, fried rice or the Mongolian beef dishes. For the price I would have expected better food and wait staff. The staff at times were more interested in their cellphones than customers

Friendly service, prompt. I ordered a drink that I loved and have now tried to duplicate, but I just don't seem to have the same magic as their bartender. It was rum with mango, mint, and basil. I'd go back just for that. I also had a shrimp dish with fried orange peel. It was good, but much hotter than... More

This small, modest store front hides an incredible Thai restaurant. Their preparations are lovely to look and even much better to eat. Of special note is the special they run frequently of Shrimp and avocado in a coconut shell. If it is offered, order it! You will not be disappointed. Their stir fries and noodle dishes are also delights.

Pen Thai has been around a long time in downtown Bothell, and it's still good. An elegant little place that can get noisy when it's full due to all the hard reflective surfaces. The menu ticks off the usual things you expect to see on a Thai menu, all very competently prepared. The fried spring rolls are tiny little guys... More

This is a local favorite. The usual dishes are delicious here... Nice ambience. We're love the pad Thai and peanut sauce. The crab wontons are good too!

First, I must say that others at the table LOVED their meals. LOVED them! I didn't like mine. I think the dish was prepared perfectly, but I just didn't like it. I had the Chef's Special Seafood and asked the server to take it back. Sending food back is not something I do, but this food did not suit me... More

I'm very picky when it comes to finding good food to enjoy, this place is my 2nd favorite for Thai cravings! Can't go wrong here! There services is a hit and miss at times though, 90% of the time we've had great service but 10% time we get someone that can't serve their tables properly and take orders correctly!
