Went here for lunch with friends and colleagues during a conference. They wait staff were very friendly, seated us quickly and made suggestions. The food was excellent. We had fresh rolls, chicken satay, pad Thai & chicken with vegis. Everything was fresh and delicious. Would definitely recommend.

If you like flavorful Thai food, you will enjoy eating at Dao Thai Restaurant. The Pad Thai is one of the best I have tasted. Although I usually like mike with a little more kick, this dish had excellent flavor, and you can kick it up with a little extra spice from the condiment tray. Eating downtown is expensive and...

Absolutely wonderful. The sampler platter was so good that we had to order a second to share with the table. The crazy spicy noodles are great with lots of fresh vegetables. Side note the have a soy sauce on the table with spicy peppers that added a kick to all the dishes. I want to try to make it at... More

I love Thai food. Good Thai food but I didn't fine it here. The cuisine at Dao's was just "ok." The food tasted bland and this included the appetizer. My friend asked for Jasmine rice but received just plain white rice. After she asked the server if it was Jasmine rice she was told yes it was. It wasn't. We... More

Recently visited this Thai food for dinner with friends. I ordered the standard Rama chicken which was decent,. Unfortunately, my friends ordered other dishes like Pad Thai and Vegetable beef. Not so great for them, but servers were friendly and we got our food right away.

While I am not a big Thai food fan, I thought Dao Thai was the best Thai restaurant I have been to. We had a group of 11 and we were served quickly and without mistakes. Everyone liked their food, my dish #8, (can't remember the name) was very good. The service impressed me the most, at the end they... More

This is my favorite Thai place and the one that I compare all others to! Everything is phenomenal! My go to dish is the Pad Woon Sen but I've tried many others and loved them all.

This was a first for my husband and I and we were pretty impressed. We both like spicy food and it did not disappoint. The only thing I regret was ordering so much food. We were in town for business and did not have the ability to take any leftovers home with us. I felt the price was not outrageous,... More
