Had a great dinner with my hubby tonight at 5 Thai Bistro. Service was outstanding! Lovely, quiet and so enjoyable.

Ordered the spring rolls to share. Came out quickly and were hot and so good. Perfect appetizer .
I had the fresh rolls as my entree and would say that they were some of the best that I have had. Super fresh. Perfect amount of mint. Gorgeous.

Hubs had the deluxe PadThai. Nice portion (not obscene, but plenty). More than the average amount of shrimp, chicken and tofu! Sauce was not too sweet and the noodles were cooked perfectly. You can always judge a Thai place by its PadThai. Excellent!!!

I would highly recommend if you love Thai food and would also recommend if you have never tried thai.

We stopped here after 4th of July fireworks. Service was a little slow for not being busy, but the food was great. Be warned, if you order the 4 star heat it will burn.

We began with a freshly brewed pot of lemongrass tea...perfect. Our entree orders were Crispy Pad-Thai with tofu and a dish called Tofu Volcano.The crispy pad thai noodles were a nice variation on the soft noodle version...The tofu was lightly fried and very tasty...Bean sprouts finished this dish...The Tofu Volcano was a spicy mix of onion, green beans, carrot, red and green peppers with lightly fried tofu..The vegetables and the tofu were cooked to perfection and served very hot...Brown boiled rice finished this dish...Price $39.00 plus tip...Highly Recommend...

We finally got around to trying 5 Thai Bistro, and glad that we did. We've been twice now, and on both visits enjoyed a variety of dishes with very friendly service. We sampled some classic Thai dishes (such as Pad Thai), and were pleasantly surprised that even a classic like this could be offered with some nice innovative twists. Here they offer a slightly spicy variant of the dish that we all enjoyed. Nice variety of appetizers and specials as well. Give it a shot when you grow tired of the other restaurants in town.

I can definitely recommend this place. Friendly waiter, good food, fair prices, although not cheap. Try to eat a Massaman Curry with chicken and with white rice as you wish. It's delicious. Close to market square.
