I've eaten here a few times and gotten take out. The food is always good, but you can get similar food for better prices in New Brunswick.

Food was fresh and made to order. I do not like mushrooms and they made sure there were not any mushrooms in my dish. I also wanted plenty of garlic and thats is just what they did. They explained all dishes to me so I understood. I have not been treated so gracefully in such a long time.

It's hard to feel good about a restaurant that employs wait staff that demands tipping at a level they think is acceptable. As far as I'm concerned, your satisfaction with the food and service is the major factor. Nevertheless tipping is always optional. Can you imagine someone chasing you down to complain about your tip? Yes, she did this! As... More

Pad Thai NC is, in my opinion, one of the greatest if not greatest Thai restaurant in New Jersey. Not only do they provide great food but also an exemplar staff as well as environment that helps make the entire experience even greater. (Favorite Dishes: Pad Thai and the Gong Pring King)

Years after people moved out of Highland Park they still remembered how much they liked this restaurant. Pad Thai wen sen, choose how hot or mild is to your taste. If you are a vegitariarian you have many choices. If you like your hair to stand up from spice, this is your fire house!

Came in on a Saturday a little after one and the place was completely empty, save for another couple. But as it got closer to two, people started filtering in here and there. To start, we ordered the Thai spring rolls with ground pork. I didn't taste any pork in there. It seemed more like a vegetable spring roll. It... More

I lived in Highland Park for two years, so I've eaten at Pad Thai more than a few times. Both the curries and noodle dishes are great. (My favorite would have to be the massaman curry, but their eponymous pad thai dish is a winner as well.) It's spicy, so be careful if you're not into that. I used to... More

This place is owned by the same owner of Four Seasons on Stelton Road in Piscataway. I think Four Seasons is way better but it is a tiny little hole in the wall and cash only. Pad Thai is elegant and has a beautiful restaurant. Food is really good.

The 4 star rating is for the food, we had green curry, panang curry and the garlic soft shell crab was my fav (see pix). Based on service it'll be a 3.5, we had 3 servers and one was just grumpy. It was a spacious restaurant as our party of 10 had an almost private space. Overall we were surprised... More

Good food and service. Pad Thai is quite good, spring rolls were OK. However, they are not kidding when they tell you that the medium is very spicy! All-in-all a good choice for thai food.
