Rod Dee has a huge menu with lots of choices; everything we ordered tasted great and the spiciness level was definitely set lower to suit American palates. The restaurant takes a fast food approach: after you order, you collect your own napkins, forks/chopsticks, and water or tea and settle down at a table to wait for your food to be... More

This is a very good place and is well loved by its many patrons. They do a lot of take out but there is ample, if simple, seating, too, if you care to stay. No beer or wine, not really even a BYOB place. Mango, coconut juices, etc, are available. But the variety of food is impressive, and they have... More

We've done takeout here multiple times and the food never disappoints, and the prices are really reasonable. Lots of traditional Thai choices. Definitely worth a stop.

Quick takeout with some seating available. Best no-frills Thai in the area. Cash-only but there are ATMs in the CVS across the street. Thai iced tea is often too sweet for my taste, but YMMV.

We have probably eaten at Rod Dee in its various locations 3 dozen times. We almost always have the pad thai or the udon noodle pad thai. It is consistently good. We also enjoy the pad see you. It is a low scale diner feel, but the food is great.

This Thai restaurant is cheap, fast and has a varied menu - the standard Thai dishes of satay, soups, noodles, curries, etc. But the staff is brusque and not very friendly. It is basically self-serve - you order at the counter and seat yourself and your food is picked up at the counter when ready. The main problem is that... More

Never been to Thailand but have few Thai friends recommended this place. Loved it from the very first visit and after couple of years still one of our favorite Thai restaurant. One small catch: ask them for their authentic Thai food menu, select dishes from there and you are in heaven of Thai food ..
