“Awesome food!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

There is standing room only in this little place. You have a bar that seats about seven people that can watch the cooks make your dinner and then about 5 little tables that seat 2/3 people each. But there was a waiting line out the door. They take your order outside before you are seated. Take out would probably be a wise choice if you don't want to wait. But excellent food.

“Don't Be Fooled By Appearances - It Is Really Good!”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

I went to Thai Tom with some friends in June while visiting Seattle. We had to wait a while for a table, but the wait was worth it. We were lucky to be seated at the counter and got to watch the chef prepare each meal. It is very fast paced and a little rushed, but the food is so good! I would caution watching out for the heat. Even 3 stars is quite spicy. But our water glasses were constantly filled.

“Excellent food in a hole-in-the-wall”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

A friend from Southern India recommended this place. The food is delicious. I loved the green curry - but next time I'll take the spiciness down to 4 stars.

It is a basic cash-only hole-in the-wall establishment. Bring cash! Expect to wait to be seated. Do not be surprised by the lack of customer service. Just enjoy the food.

“Amazingly Thai food experience!”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

Small but worth the wait. Great thai food you get to watch them make.The smell of garlic and peppers was so incredible and the noodles were to die for.Watching the chef prepare and cook this food was an amazing experience. Just remember to bring cash because they don't take visa.
