This was very good food well prepared with excellent flavor. Recommended by locals for its family friendly atmosphere, taste, nice presentation, and quick service. The locals know the place to go for a quick bite that leaves a pleasant lasting memory.

This is our "go-to" for great Thai food.... eating in or taking out. Excellent food choices, quick service. Very limited seating.

The place is small and kind of dumpy, but clean; also, the smallness means you can make eye contact with your waiter in a second and he immediately asks you if you need anything. The food was good, if perhaps a little oily (I got the Pad Kee Mao). The fried rice is excellent, and so is their Thai Iced... More

Used to live close by and still drive over for the food. Best and most authentic Thai food I can get without going to issaquah or Renton. Place looks like a dump. But tastes oh so good.

Look, I eat Thai food all over the world. I don't write reviews unless places are special. KRUA Seattle is. Family run, very casual almost hole in the wall about 20 seats. Sit down and a small delicious complimentary salad is placed before you. The Thai chicken noodle soup, the Pad Thai, the Green Curry, and the Phad Sei were... More

Really enjoy this restaurant and feel it is some of the better Thai food in NE Seattle. It is a small location so most people take it to go but you'll get it home and it holds up well so you can enjoy it still. Turnaround is good and the value is fair, nothing spectacular but not unexpected. Definitely worth... More

Lots of fresh veggies and great flavors really stand out for me about this meal. Spring rolls were fresh and presented well, Phad prik pao had lots of fresh, shocked veggies (the eggplant was particularly to die for) and the fried tofu was still tender, crab pad Thai had good balance of flavors and noodles were not overdone or sticky,...

We decided to check out the restaurants in the area that we are staying in for happy hour & settled on Krua based on the menu posted outside the door. The two of us were the only people in the restaurant & ordered our drinks. Most of the appetizers listed on the menu for happy hour were crossed off the... More

The place is simple but clean and modern looking, the open kitchen is nice but it gets a little loud when lots of things are being cooked. We ordered two noodle dishes, both of which were tasty and came quickly. The service was very friendly and efficient. The location near Seattle Center is very convenient as I'm there a lot--I...

Food is always fresh, you can taste the individual vegetables in each dish. It could be spicier, I ordered 3-stars, I will ask for more heat next time! It is small, and casual, I wish it were in my neighborhood!
