“DELICIOUS FOOD IN A NEAT AMBIANCE AT BARGAIN PRICES”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

My wife and I sought out this restaurant, in a shopping center, because of the rave reviews. We came for lunch. What a neat ambiance. Lots of dark wood. A small, burbling water fountain near the entrance. Mirrors and decorations on the walls. Background Thai music.

We ordered from the Lunch Specials menu. My wife went for the Pad Thai. I opted for the Cashew Nuts entrée. We both decided on chicken as the meat portion of our dishes. Our waitress, cordial and reserved, took our order without writing anything down. And she got everything right.

First out of the kitchen was our soups, which was part of the lunch special. This day that soup was chicken noodle. It was most flavorful. Next came our entrées, presented in platters. The food had great eye appeal and looked so inviting. Along with the entrées were small salads and chunks of pineapple in the platters. We savored our delicious food in a most relaxing and pleasant ambiance. And the cost was a mere $8.95 per entrée, a real bargain.

We'll be back! My rating is actually a 4 1/2.

“Very Good Thai, Plus Other Asian”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

Consistently good Thai. Almost a secret, slightly out of the way in Sandalfoot Plaza off of 441 near Western Beef. Over the years, we have kept coming back, always amazed at how good Chow Thai is, and how empty. Its location is out of the way for most of Boca, not good for the restaurant, but great for patrons. Always excellent featured selections, excellent service, good prices. The best deal is the Early Bird, before 6:30 PM, with soup, appetizer, dessert, and tea, on top of a slightly reduced price main dish. We enjoyed the Pad Thai and the Siamese duck - one of their specialties, not on the Early Bird. Will close for month of July 2014, re-opens August 3, while the family re-unites in Bangkok. That's the point, Chow Thai is a family-run, totally focused, very, very good Thai. Terrific dining spot.
