The food is delish but you know that when there is a line of people in a food court and they are ALL waiting to order here. Family owned and run. Great eats on the hill.

This hidden gem is located in a food court up on the hill, so they have slightly different hours than other places, as they sync up with the school year. Hands down, this is my favorite Thai restaurant. Large portions, cheaper prices than anywhere else I've been, and super friendly staff. You need to go!

I was prepared to really like this family run Thai restaurant in the food court on the Hill. I have not lived in Thailand, but have traveled there often, and I do not,agree with the other reviewers. This food did not taste like Bangkok street food to me, and that is what I usually eat in Thailand. And it wasn't... More

This is a great cheap lunch spot. All the food is made fresh by the family that owns the restaurant. This is probably the only business that has been in this food court continuously for more than three or four years - they've been here at least ten, maybe more. The service is fast and friendly. You can tell by... More

We've been coming to Thai avenue for years! It's so delicious, affordable and welcoming with a friendly hello from the owner and cook Kim. Highly recommend the pad prik sod or curries but everything is super yummy. Not recommended for a romantic destination, as it's cafeteria style but for cheap, healthy great food this place is the best!!!

I used to live in Thailand and this is the only restaurant in Boulder that actually tastes like Thai street food. Excellent value as well, especially if you go for the lunch special. Haven't been disappointed yet :)

Best Thai food I've ever had, period. Also most reasonably priced. This is a small family owned business. Food is simply amazing. An entree is somewhere around $7 and it is in a food court.

Thai Avenue is a staple of Thai food in Boulder. Located on "The Hill", in the lower level food court at the corner of College and 13th (building on the left if you're looking at the mountains), it is the best restaurant in this court, and arguably the best place for lunch in the CU Boulder area. Boasting quickly prepared... More

I have been to Thai avenue many times and always have had a great AffordableThai meal. It is in the lower level of the food court near the CU campus. It is a great spot for a quick very affordable lunch or take out. The street noodle dish is always good. The only knock I can think of are sometimes... More

We followed advise from TA and in my opinion really not 5 stars. Food was ok served on plastic with plastic utensils ( not what I would think Boulder recycling level) very basic. Price very good for food.
