We visited this restaurant tonight last minute. The host was most accommodating. I cannot compliment the food enough. It was absolutely delious. We all ordered different things and each dish was as good.The portions were generous and it was reasonably priced . Will definitely go again when back in Monterey.

I had planned to eat in; however, the wait was too long for my schedule. I ordered my food to go. Nice selection on menu. Would have gone back a second day; however, they are closed on Tuesdays.

If you are looking for an affordable and great tasting lunch or dinner with excellent customer service then you need to try Krua Thai. My family has eaten at this restaurant many times and it is one of our favorites. I also try to sneak over for lunch at least once a week without the family finding out. :-)

My husband and I (both vegans) thoroughly enjoyed this restaurant. I had the ginger tofu, my husband, the mosaman tofu - both were delicious. The atmosphere was soothing and the staff very helpful.

Ate here several times while visiting Monterey and we enjoyed every mouthful. The food was superb, the place had a great ambience and the service was excellent. Would highly recommend.

Enjoyed our visit to KRUA; a nice small restaurant that was full for a week day lunch. I had the special shrimp satay skewers, very tasty. A nice Thai beer to go with it made a great lunch.

Dropped in on a whim and we were rewarded with a wonderful meal, great service and the best Thai in the US. A must in Monterey.

I've lost count how many times I've eaten here. Delicious food, good service. Parking is easy for this place which is rare for the peninsula. Try it. You won't be disappointed.

Just eaten in the Keys Thai and have been blown away with the authenticity, quality and value Walked past at lunchtime and was busy so went back this evening and place was packed. We were a group of 6 so they had to sort out a table but only had to wait 5 mins and it was worth it. They... More
