The produce ingredients used are fresh for the most part although the peas, and pineapple used appeared canned and or frozen. The dishes are prepared in an authentic old world manner and the sauces and spices are very tasty. Trying to accommodate for American tastes the chef tries to adjust the heat and spice level 1-10 but this just leads to inconsistencies. The Tom Yum soup had a very nice lemongrass/tomato based broth with medium heat level. Unfortunately only fresh bits of mushrooms are in the soup, leaving you wishing for other vegetables and perhaps some chicken or shrimp. The shrimp in red curry sauce we ordered was overdone giving it a chewy texture. The quantity of food is abundant and the service is attentive. The eclectic surroundings provides a charming environment. Overall there is good value for the price. The menu offerings are not gourmet but they do offer variety.

With all of the Thai restaurants in Pittsburgh, and after eating in quite a few of them, I always return to Thai Gourmet. The food is excellent, consistent, plentiful and priced realistically. The service is pleasant, helpful and cheerful as it is mostly family all playing a part in the dining experience.
The decor is eclectic, but I never went back to a restaurant for the artwork or the fabric on the chairs!
It's basic. If you want great Thai food, reasonably priced, friendly service and access to a bowl full of snack sized candy bars at the end of your meal...this is the place to go!

I've been there couple times. Food is great and portions are big, never finished it all. Try grilled pork, Pad See Yew with pork or chicken. Desserts are all great, as well as the service. Love this place!

This is quite simply the best Thai food in Pittsburgh. I have been to all the other Thai joints in the city, and this one is the best. The food is consistently good and cheaper than many of the other places. The curries are nicely done. The pad Thai is excellent (although I prefer the pad see ew). Tom Kar soup is awesome.
Service is prompt, friendly, and efficient. The ambiance may be a little lacking, but the food more than makes up for it.
Almost forgot to mention that it is BYOB.
