1/5 stars for the service. We were served by a young Hispanic male that was rude and inattentive. Not once did he asked if we needed anything. He came once to our table and never came back. I had to flag him down several times which apparently caused him to be annoyed. Not once did he acknowledged the fact that... More

We always eat here. The food is good, compared to other Thai restaurants we have been in. The servers are attentive to your needs for the most part.

Thai Original BBQ has consistently good food. I first visited this location over 10 years ago and the quality and value has not changed. Some of my favorite dishes are Pad See Ew, BBQ Chicken, Angel Wings, and Beef Salad. Everything comes out tasty and in big portions that are great for sharing.

Was a long time customer, since I live in the area. It used to be a great place for lunch & specials, but last few times the food as well as the service quality has declined to "poor". The service is 'fake' friendly/helpful, you get the feeling they want you to order & eat quickly so the table can be... More
