We look forward to eating there. My wife likes the cashew chicken. I like to try various dishes. It's an out of the way place that draws in local people. I stick to stir fried dishes without breading for lower calories and they have many of those. Always tasty and reasonably priced.

Very quaint restaurant. Good service however the food was not the best Thai I have had. I had the coconut soup (Tom Ka). Not much coconut, nor other flavor other than salty which I assume came from the fish sauce. Also had the curry pockets which tasted old; the pastry was tough and they had very little filling. The Pad... More

Good food. We had red curry and pad thai shrimp and soup. Was much better than we expected. Dishes look like in fancy restaurant. Very nice atmosphere, good service, clean restroom! Will come back for sure:)

First, my Garmin GPS and Smart phone maps all took me to the wrong location so look around, the restaurant is tucked back on the Airline Rd side of the corner even though the address is on McArdle I enjoyed my meal very much and would definitely return, they have a nice outdoor seating area for when the weather isn't...

Recently redecorated. Noisy, VERY crowded and small. Wheelchair accessible barely. Had to disturb other diners to get through aisle. Food becomes more americanized every time we go, but still excellent and the service is outstanding. Priced so that a family can easily afford.

The atmosphere was very nice, very clean restaurant and the servers were friendly. Our food on the other hand was very bland. I had the Tom Yum soup and chef shrimp fried rice. The rice lacked any flavor which was disappointing. It was more Asian-American than authentic Thai food.

Had the princess chicken today with soup & egg roll. Lunch special was only $6.99! Excellent, fresh, clean, great service & good parking. Separate checks with 11 girl friends yet our waitress wasn't flustered at all. Will return soon!

It's a small melon and black colored Victorian style house hidden amongst strip malls, but on the main street so not too hard to find. It was busy and crowded and we were told by the stores across the street later that it stays that way. The food was excellent, service was very fast. We had Pad Thai and were... More

Thai Cottage is one of our favorite restaurants. It's atmosphere in a quaint old house with an outside patio is unique and refreshing here in Corpus. My favorite is the red curry but I've never had anything bad here. The sticky rice dessert is delicious too. Our go-to for Thai food.
