“Good thai but be highly aware of spiciness in your dinner”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014 via mobile

This was great thai food.
Ordered fried potstickers, and broccoli and chicken in peanut sauce. Hubby ordered Massaman curry but was ridiculously spicy.
We've been to other thai restaurants in the past that used thai chilis for spice. Cambodian Thai uses habaneros. They do state that in their menu and when my husband ordered his at his usual level 2 spice, he could not eat it.
They did remake it at a level 1 (lowest and a curry still has some habaneros) and it was tolerable. The server told us they would normally charge for both bowls. We didn't have to pay for both but be forewarned.

“Spices Fall Flat”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 November 2013

Based on previous reviews, I was anxious to try Cambodian Thai. One of my chief complaints about cuisines that involve lots of spices is the "dumbing down" of dishes to appeal to a generic palate. I was glad to see that the menu devoted considerable space to describing spicing and making clear that you could order any dish as mild or as spicy as you prefer. My wife and I both ordered curries - her's a red curry at a "5" level of spice and mine a Massaman at a "7" level. Although appropriately flavorful, but dishes were very timid in terms of spice. I would have "ranked" both as a "1" (on the 1-10 scale). Service was cordial, though not particularly inspired. All-in-all, a let down. I will probably try another establishment on my next trip to town.

“Excellent Food! Great service.”

My fiance and I love coming here because the food is great! We really like the Pad Se Ew (sp?). The decor is a little lacking but the food makes up for it.

“My Favorite Thai Place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 October 2013

Their restaurant used to be quite small but it's moved to a much bigger area that makes it much easier to get a seat. The food here is excellent but it does take some time to get your food, especially if it's busy (around meal times you can expect it will be). Well worth the wait!!! The prices are great and I highly recommend the drunken noodles - delicious! Keep in mind that Thai hot and American hot are VERY different. Be sure to specify how hot you want your meals! Even for those who don't like spicy foods, there are much more mild items on the menu. Check it out!

“Fresh Thai, Great Menu”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2013

Excellent Thai food, prepared fresh when you order. Decor is simple, service very good. Takes a while to get your meal, but it is made fresh so the wait is so worth it. Recommend the Tom Yum soup, and Coconut Chicken soup. Also you can't miss with the Drunken Noodles and Cashew Nuts. Lots of menu choices as well and prices very reasonable.
