We went for lunch and it had a variety of ppl from families with kids, ladies lunch, business lunch-from what I can tell. We found parking right up front as well..so its easy to park, eat, and go...

First off, the food is simple but delicious! The restaurant is under new ownership and they have made major advancements since Sam sold it. Most of it is not seen or heard but they replaced a bunch of the cooking equipment which allows for cooking faster and healthier. They used to tell people 15-20 minute waits on to-go orders but...

People have always raved about Thai Cafe and their special salad, but I don't know why. I find the salad rather blah. A lot of iceberg lettuce, which isn't very interesting. The dressing is yummy, but I think it's time to update the ingredients. I have never been there when there weren't little flies all over the place, and the... More

I have traveled to Thailand many times and I was surprised by the authenticity of this restaurant. The food was fresh and delicious. It was brought out in a timely manner and the service was excellent! Good portion sizes, surprisingly large for lunch time.

The salad kai is simply the best Thai salad I have ever eaten. The chicken fried rice is also a favorite. The pad thai is good. I love the Thai ice tea (not the one with cream) and it is very refreshing. What is NOT refreshing is the decor. It is old and outdated. There is no ambiance to speak... More

Always busy for a reason--but despite the amount of people--services is always fast and friendly. I've not had a dish that wasn't wonderful and presented well. Their Salad Kai is the best I've ever had.

I ate here for the first time a couple years back because the service at the other Thai restaurant in Tracy went south. One of the best decisions I've ever made. Sam, the owner is always there. He has a great crew of servers. He has the best Thai cooks. The food has never been good, it has ALWAYS been... More

We eat here often, and enjoy the food and the atmosphere. The staff is very friendly, courteous, and helpful. I would recommend this to anyone who really wants some authentic Thai cuisine.

Sorry, I wish that I could rate it higher. The food seemed about average, the service was very slow and did not seem well trained, and the restaurant itself needed a major overhaul. Tracy really needs good restaurants, so hopefully someone that cares about this place will invest some time and effort into bringing it up to a new standard.
