Greeted quickly and seated in front of the window. All the items we ordered tasted fresh and authentic. Fresh summer rolls to the noodle bowls and coffee and tea were a nice option in a town where the norm is Mexican. We'd go back again.

Hubster and I stopped here for dinner after a day in Rocky Mountain National Park. It was great! From the service to our meal!!! It's located in town but not in the strip. Seemed like a lot of locals were there. Waitress was very friendly and talked with us about the town. Hubster had garlic pepper beef and I had... More

This little Thai restaurant is located near the Estes Park Post Office--NOT downtown--on Riverside Drive. But our advice is to take the time to find it...you will not be disappointed! Service is friendly and attentive, the portions are large and the entrees are very fresh and tasty. I had a traditional Thai rice and vegatable dish and my wife opted... More

Small-town Thai can be very disappointing. Most don't even know what Thai basil is; their basil dishes contain Mediterranean basil! But not Pho-Thai! They use real Thai basil. Their veggies are fresh and not over-cooked. The sauce is a little thicker than most Thai restaurants at which I've eaten. But it is tasty. Yes, we will eat here again. The... More

Estes Park is by no means a food mecca but Cafe de Pho-Thai is a real find. It was by far the best restaurant we tried in the area and we would highly recommend their curries. They make them from scratch and it shows.

Always a good sign when you see the locals flocking in. Good variety of choices, Thai, Chinese, Vietnamese. Priced to keep the locals returning on a regular basis. Nothing special to look at, but it's a place you more than likely will find yourself returning to each and every tine you find yourself in Estes Park. Service was prompt, and... More

I was excited to eat at a "noodle house" while we were here on vacation. It doesn't look like much, but the food was fantastic, the prices were good, and the portions were generous. Service was also very good. I enjoyed it so much I want to go back for a second time before we leave. I had chicken pho... More

I was recommended to dine here by a local and so happy I did. The Thai tea was delicious and the pad thai with spice was just what I needed.
