It's a small restaurant that almost always has a table available, and their to go business is very popular. Curry is one of my favorite dishes and theirs can't be beat. Beware though, their star rating seems to run hot so get one less than you usually do elsewhere.

I have never been disappointed with the meal we've had here and I've always called to have take out ready for me. I probably only live 10 minutes away and my food is usually waiting for me when I get there. I just wish they had air conditioning that really is my only complaint.

there was good and bad, pad see ew, was very good, crispy garlic chicken tasted good but chicken was tough, and that is kinda how it goes food wise, good but not great. Prices are a bit high, they charge for rice on top of that, appetizers small. The people that own or run the place need to be more... More

I LOVE Kwan Tip Thai! This is probably my favorite Thai place I've been to so far. I've heard about one other place in Kent I need to try but for now, this is my favorite Thai place. Thai Bistro is good but this place is great. Every single time, the food is amazing. I always get the phad thai... More

Quite possibly the worst food I have ever had. Bbq chicken. Tough. Had to cut with a knife. Hard to chew no flavor.

We really enjoyed the food and the friendly service at Kwan Tip Thai. The Seven Flavor Beef was delicious, and not something we have had at Thai restaurants at home in NC. The Thai iced tea and iced coffee were sweet and refreshing. Our server (and owner of the restaurant) chatted with us about our travels (car road trip from... More

Another place I found thanks to Yelp. This place lived up to all the hype and am glad to have a great Thai place in Federal Way. You can tell they get a lot of Asians customers here as their 3 stars had quite a bit of kick. It was definitely spicier than other places' 3 stars. We ordered 1... More

We each ordered a menu selection to share with the other 7 at the table and each one was better than the previous! Our friends took us there, it is their favorite local restaurant and I understand why they show off this neighborhood gem! Will return as soon as possible.
