Chic Thai restaurant that can serve both authentic and toned down Thai dishes based on your preference. Portion is large and price is reasonable. The restaurant has different corners to serve couples and large group. Pad Thai and Chicken Pad Krapow on rice are my lunch favourite. Penang, Tom yum Kung or Pla, Green curry, Satay and Thai salad Somtam... More

I am a Thai food enthusiast, and I love Cozy Thai! The service is good, and menu large enough to have good choices, but not so many choices that you can't decide! Love the Thai Tea and warm peanut dressing on the lunch special salads.

I love the food at Cozy Thai but frequently the lunch service is slow. The restaurant can have only a moderate number of customers but the service is slow. They seat you quickly but it may take a while for drinks, food, and your check. They seem constantly understaffed. Conversely, if you order takeout ahead of time. The service is... More

Had a very good lunch at this spot. I would t recommend it for a couples dinner outing because it's counter service and limited seating. It's a nice place if you aren't planning a formal dining experience and probably caters to more if the college student crowd. It's the number 1 rated Thai place on TA.

Have eaten here many times -- often enough to know that today something was way off. We arrived at about 12:45, shortly after the lunch hour rush. We were seated in the rear of the dining room, the four-table section closest to the kitchen. Three tables were still littered with stuff from the previous users -- backpack, books, apron, half...

I'm a regular at Cozy Thai. The staff is super friendly. The food is always great and the prices are decent. They also have very good prices for their lunch menu.

Good place, food was pretty good. Had slightly better, had much worse. It was quite expensive but probably ranks in the top 5 places in and around town so worth the treat.

I ordered the Tom Yum soup alongside Pad Thai. The order was verified gluten free; the server knew her GF protocol. The TY soups was so spicy it wasn't very edible. The Pad Thai was good; extremely hot (temperature) when it arrived. Generous portion was served, they obviously feed a lot of college kids. The restaurant was a bit dark... More

Service was friendly and quick, decor was minimalist College-area student restaurant, and food we had (Chicken Pad Thai, Green Curry Tofu) was perfectly good - we are perhaps rating this a bit lower because we are spoiled by being used to a truly superior Thai restaurant in our area, but the food here was definitely tasty, reasonably priced, and better...

Found this place while doing a drive by in the area. Good Thai food. Limited menu but overall good place and prices were very reasonable. Can't go wrong with the Pad Thai!
