“Best local Thai”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

I know of one better, in Bellevue, but of all the local Thai places this is the best, and very good compared to any other city I go to around the country.

“Great hidden gem”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

The ingredients are fresh, perfectly spiced and the atmosphere is good. It's a tropical feeling inside to compliment the Thai cuisine. I judge my Thai restaurants by their Pad Ki Mao. Similan passes the test with flying colors. Can get crowded on weekends but worth the wait. Don't plan on waiting in the bar...it consists of 2 stools.

“Nice Thai restaurant”
Reviewed 20 June 2014

This was our second time here. First time, back in Jan. 2014, the place was packed, had to wait for a table, take-out was flying out the door. Our meal and the service then was very good.
Last night, June 19 2014, we walked into a pretty quiet setting. Food was fine except the vegetable delight wasn't very warm. To the credit of the staff, once we were able to get some help - had to leave the table to find someone - took care of it immediately. They told us about how long it would take to heat, and once the serving was back, we were asked repeatedly if everything was ok or if we needed anything else. We concluded that without the high turnover happening such as when we went the first time, food may just not be as freshly prepared.

“First choice for Thai foods”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

This is our go-to place for Thai Foods on the Eastside. Good selection of lunch items (combination of small entree and a noodle/rice dish). Very busy in the evening, sometime there is a short wait but the service is quick so the table turned fast.

We liked everything on the menu, there is a coupon (in the mail) that give 15% off but the regular prices is pretty low anyway.

It's going to be hard to beat this. I've been here 3 times now and the food is amazing. It tastes fresh, great spice, fantastic. Have done lunch, dinner and their online take out ordering. Great, fast, accurate service and delicious food!
