A very good choice for Thai food. Cafe is super nice, clean, staff is very accommodating and the food is top notch.

Went here for dinner. Food is ok. I ordered crab but it came with a surprise. They didn't have anything to break the crab shell with. Ended up digging out the crab meat with tiny needle.

Went there expecting typical Thai sweet tasting food. It was not. The food was prepared good, but it lacked on taste. It was more bland. Not the typical sweet taste, nor was it spicy. There were new servers that didn't really know much about the restaurant, food, but were helpful but not intrusive. Portions were good. If you're hungry it... More

A bit cookie-cutter IMO. There are better Thai options available close by. The setting is modern / nice. Service seems fine but the flavors were just okay!... Better suited for a quick lunch (order from the lunch specials) than for authentic Thai dining experience.

We have dined here off and on over the years, this time I believe the restaurant has changed names. Despite this, dining is very much the same as in the past. Lots of entrees for lunch, many that can be very spicy. I prefer a milder version and was able to have a chicken cashew lunch that was very good.... More

Urban Thai was excellent and we went there for years. The food was reliably of good quality and the flavors were fresh. The service was also good. Our server always remembered us as well as the dishes we usually ordered. Being a vegetarian, I am always looking for new "takes" on tofu dishes and our server always had one to... More

I have been going here for over 5 years and really enjoy the food. Service can be lax at times. But I have only had that problem two times. Great lunch deals!

I was so excited to see a modern Thai food place near my new home. I went in to find food styles from the 1970's. It wasn't upscale or urban. More like a truck stop with cheap wine. The peanut sauce tasted like Jif whipped with some oil. Really disappointing. Skip this one and go to the other Thai place... More
