We always try to come here to entertain the speaker at our meeting for the month! So delicious and we share family style our many favorites! Mine is combining the coconut ice cream with the warm black rice pudding sundae style! It is truly a piece of heaven!

I sometimes eat here because of its location. The waiter seems zoned out and particularly unfriendly. The food was lukewarm and certainly not 4 star. I asked him to bring some red hot sauce. He did so but it was empty! I motioned to him and he very slowly sauntered back and forth to fill the bowl. I know many... More

I asked my server for some recommendations. Among others he suggested the salmon. The manner in which he approached the recommendations was in such a detached way that I wondered if I was bothering him. He was looking out the windows, at the ceiling, everywhere but at me. The salmon was done nicely but it isn't what I am thinking... More

This Thai cafe, located in the Laurelhurst University of Washington area, has it all: delicious, fresh food; spotless, attractive decor. My grilled beef salad had an expected ingredient, mint!

Plenty of easy parking help make this a destination of choice. Relatively quiet which I prefer so as to hear my dinner companions. Nice range of dishes, good service in an elegant setting.

We walked from our hotel and found a restaurant full of people enjoying thai food at lunch. They found a spot for us and it was one of the best Thai experiences we have had, even Bangkok. The Avocado Curry was excellent.

I've been to Thailand several times, this restaurant offers the real flavors and a great upscale environment while still affordable. I recommend it.

We decided to take our niec the Marlai Thai Restaurant in Seattle, and it was certainly a good choice. I too - read the reviews by other people who have gone there, and so this place seemed to have some of the highest ratings. The menu was complete in terms of Thai cuisine, and the food was tasty.

As for Thai food it was good but nothing to write home about. The female staff were very friendly and helpful, but that could not be said of the one male I saw waiting on tables. Realy, a thai restaurant that runs out of ice tea. I'm ok with eating here the food was good but will look for a... More
