This is not a destination restaurant for tourists, however, for people living in Philadelphia in the Mt. Airy, East Falls, Chestnut Hill or surrounding area it is a great option as opposed to going into town. The restaurant is pretty enough for bringing a date or having a small gathering of friends. It is not very large and has an... More

Thai Kuu is still the best Thai restaurant in the surroundings. It appears they changed the menu, correct me if I am wrong. Anyhow, they offer wonderful Thai dishes and good service. Now they charge $2.00 for cork fee.

BYOB is a nice touch and intimate environment means great date spot but food was just ok. I have high expectations when I see a table full of Asian folks dining, but this just didn't live up to my expectations. We never ordered more than appetizers because we weren't WOWed by them.

This place is becoming our favorite Thai restaurant is the surroundings. Compare to ones in blue bell and Conshohicken, this is our favorite one to dine in and take out. The restaurant manager needs to work on better managing the restaurant other than that foods are good and can't beat the convenience of liquor store just around the corner for... More

This restaurant is easy to miss since its tucked away in a shopping strip at the top of the hill. I urge you to go stop at the state store to grab some wine, which is next door, and go! It's quiet and tastefully decorated. They have a menu that includes standard Thai favorites prepared with fresh ingredients and plated... More

Service ultra-courteous, food on target...many choices and all categories from soups to appetizers to entrees and specials were prepared perfectly and consistently...our second visit found the pad thai as well-prepared as the first, as was the tom yum soup, golden bags and red curry. We worth the visit, and use your gps as it's tucked in and easily missed at... More

Local restaurant which seems way to fancy for typical Thai food. I was very skeptical when we were served exclusively by black Americans..no Asians in sight but the service was quick and excellent and the food was delicious!
