It's been about a year since the last time---when I rated Khun Thai "very good". I rarely rate any restaurant "excellent ", but this time, based solely on the special dish my wife and I had, I need to increase KT's rating. It was jumbo shrimp and scallops on a bed of asparagus and an exquisite sauce---so good we wanted... More

The food is very well prepared and presented. The sauce is flavorful and lightly sweet, but not overly sweet. The main ingredients are prepared to near their ideal point. And the vegetable garnishes are edible flourishes. Three of us had duck: with basil and ginger, or honey and ginger, or ginger and shiitake mushrooms. Mine was less than crispy, which... More

Went to dinner on a Friday night with a few girlfriends. They had been before. It was my first time. There is parking on the street, but there is also parking in the back. You can enter from the rear also. It is small, but the service was good and the food even better. I had a salmon dish and... More

Khun Thai is an elegant little Thai restaurant with authentic Thai food and gracious Thai service. I had the wild mushroom soup and chicken massaman curry, both very good. Mushrooms are fresh and delicately cooked in a clear broth. I can also vouch for the salmon spring roles, robbed from my wife's plate. Delicious. The crispy duck salad is also... More

We went there on reading great reviews and weren't disappointed. Its a small busy cosy place. We ordered the green curry and basil rice. Vegetables in the green curry were perfectly cooked, crunchy and fresh but not raw. Flavours and aroma were wonderful. Till date the best we have had in and around NY. Must visit if you are in...

The lunch special is a great deal. Soup, salad, and chicken satay & spring roll appetizer, plus a delicious entrée, for a very reasonable price. The Se rvice is excellent, and the atmosphere is relaxed & comfortable with a big fish tank in the middle of the two-story dining room with loft above. A great choice for dinner as a... More

The restaurant is a really good Thai restaurant. It is BYOB so you save money there. The service can be slow and expect to wait 15-30 minutes sometimes (unusual for a chinese/thai place). There are only a few tables so sometimes you have to wait to get seated. I think they only take reservations for 4 and more.

I think there are better thai restaurants around, fortunately. Food is pretty boring and expensive for what you get. Rarely see that many people in there which is not surprising. Much prefer Wild Ginger in Maplewood

At Khun Thai, every dish is carefully crafted to offer a diversity of flavors and aromas that are sure to allow you to experience your food.

Our head chef is originally from Thailand and uses many family recipes to create authentic Thai dishes. Whether you're new to Thai cuisine or a seasoned Thai food diner, our dishes offer a diversity of flavors and aromas that will surely make relish every bite.

As with tradition Thai cuisine, there is a strong emphasis placed on lightly prepared dishes with aromatic components. Our dishes are never one dimensional in flavor, rather, each dish has a balance of sour, sweet, and salty.

We hope you will dine with us Khun Thai and experience authentic Thai and Asian Fusion cuisine.
