I am a bit spoiled having been to Thailand and for having Thai food many, many times. It was solid, sort of North American-ized, but it was solid. I got there and they said to just sit down and pointed at a table, then was...More

I had chicken pad Thai that was just so so. For the portion size I felt it was overpriced and did not have much chicken or other ingredients in it except the noodles no bean sprouts. The service was average and I probably would not...More

We found the Thai Lao Orchid tucked away just a few blocks from the Alamo on a not-so-frequented street but very nearby. The restaurant is quite small but there was no trouble getting a table. The service was excellent, and the food was great. We...More

Small kind of hole in the wall but the best Thai in San Antonio. It is only two blocks from the Alamo but you need to look at a map to find this place. It does not stay open late but is open for both...More

This is about a block over from the Alamo, and is worth a trip. Small place, but staff are nice and friendly, and service is good. Tried the crispy egg rolls, which came with a peanut sauce of sorts - delicious. For my entree, I...More

Wasn’t sure how it would be based on other mixed reviews. I ordered to go so I can’t comment on the service although the lady at the counter was perfectly nice. The Thai crispy egg rolls were delish with a little tricky spice you don’t...More

I ordered take-out, and had only one dish, so I can't comment on the whole menu. It was prepared fast, which is a plus. Flavor was so-so — neither exceptional nor poor. I'd requested spicy, and it was quite mild, which was a disappointment. Prices...More

Unfortunately this place has a roach issue. Couple of months ago a coworker found a roach in his Pho. There is no other place downtown so decided to try it again today, three spoonfuls into the Pho and a live roach crawled out of the...More
