Description: At Khun Thai, every dish is carefully crafted to offer a diversity of flavors and aromas that are sure to allow you to experience your food. Our head chef is originally from Thailand and uses many family recipes to create authentic Thai dishes. Whether you're new to Thai cuisine or a seasoned Thai food diner, our dishes offer a diversity of flavors and aromas that will surely make relish every bite. As with tradition Thai cuisine, there is a strong emphasis placed on lightly prepared dishes with aromatic components. Our dishes are never one dimensional in flavor, rather, each dish has a balance of sour, sweet, and salty. We hope you will dine with us Khun Thai and experience authentic Thai and Asian Fusion cuisine.

Best chef is on weekends. Best deals are for lunch. Wonderful curries, fresh Thai salad. A wonderful restaurant. Eat here at least once a month.

We're glad you've kept coming back to us, and we hope you've still kept up monthly since the spring! You're smart for taking advantage of the lunch deal. Curry is always a good choice, too. Thanks for your kind words!

Best,
Khun Thai Restaurant

“Good Thai food - love the decor”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 March 2014 via mobile

Had the grilled lemongrass chicken (with sticky black rice wrapped in a banana leaf)and coconut milk soup. Have been to several other Thai places in the area and liked this one the most. The decor is interesting and relaxing. Service was friendly and attentive. It is BYOB here.

“Consistently good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 March 2014

A casual BYOB restaurant that offers excellent quality and value. Try the Waterfall Beef appetizer, the Ginger Duck, and the Ginger Lime Red Snapper. Service can be quite slow on busy nights. There is ample parking in the lot behind the restaurant.

Those are some top-notch menu recommendations! It seems like you've been around a few times, and your loyalty means a lot. Sometimes we do have to slow down a little bit to accommodate a bigger crowd, and we really appreciate your patience. We hope you'll be back again soon. The Ginger Duck is calling your name.

Best,
Khun Thai Restaurant

“Excellent Thai”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2014

Went here with another couple. While at the restaurant, saw 2 other couples from the neighborhood. Everyone had different food - - noodles, fish, meat, shrimp, soup, salad. Everyone liked their food. The portions were a good size, the food was hot and tasted very good. The wait staff was very friendly, and I could see that it was not just to our table.

We ended with chocolate souffle. It was good.

Definetly recommend this place.
