The food in general is pretty good. Their phad-thai and curry are tasty. However, one time, I ordered the crab fried rice. It was so disgusting. The crab meat was obviously not fr...

It's Grrrrr-eat! 12/9/2006

I have yet to find a place that has spring rolls as good as this place. They are fried, but are so light and crispy like a pastry. Seriously, I have gone to Cleveland and back without finding a comparable spring roll. Their noodle dishes are typically excellent. The only complaint is that they aren't consistent. One day, my Phad See-Ew is perfectly stir-fried, perfectly sauced with crispy veggies. The next day, the pan wasn't hot enough so it's soupy and the noodles broken up and overcooked/simmered. Then the day after that, there's barely any sauce and it's burnt everywhere. It's battered customer syndrome. When it's good, it's fantastic. After that, I'm chasing the dragon. Their brick wall is insufferably unique and cool. Feels like dining in a prison with IKEA lighting...but I like that. Also, beware of the gruff waitstaff. They can get pissy when they realize you didn't tip them what they didn't earn. Word of advice: Pay fast and get out the door before they see what you left behind! more

My pick for the best Thai in town 11/30/2006

I was lucky enough to be at UW for both undergrad and master's and although living in the U-district that long was maddening, the Thaiger Room kept me very happy. There could be better Thai food out there...if so, I've never had it. The Drunken Noodles (aka Pad Kee Mao) are blow-your-mind amazing. Their cooks have a way of keeping the veggies crunchy while the noodles are covered in a delicious sauce. The Golden Noodles are also a favorite, because it is surprisingly hard to find a noodles, veggies and peanut sauce combo at most restaurants. Their peanut sauce is fantastic by the way. My husband is hooked on their Cashew Chicken and both of us agree that the serve the best Pad Thai around. And try the spring rolls! Lightly fried and served with a lovely (not syrupy) plum sauce. The kitchen is open so you can see all of the action. Yes, it can be crowded and warm and there really isn't much ambiance, but they could serve this food out of the back of a truck and I would still line up for it. I work downtown, but sometimes my coworkers and I will jump on a bus or take a taxi just to eat here. more

Meat is Seared to Perfection! 10/31/2006

One of my favorite Thai restaurants in Seattle. Nowadays, I actually prefer Thaiger room to Thai Tom's (after 7 years of Tom's being my favorite). I love how they cook the meat. It tastes incredible, it tastes like they marinate the meat perfectly and then heat it in such a way it seals in the flavour. My favorites are the Pad See Ew with Beef and the Pad Kee Mao with Chicken. If you are with people, I suggest getting both and splitting them, they taste delicious in contrast to one another. The Pad See Ew's mellow sweetness goes well with the Pad Kee Mao's rich spice. I only order 2 stars here, though because it is VERY spicy and sometimes inconsistently spiced which can result in TOO spicy. (I used to get 3-4 stars at Thai Tom's). The food is consistently good. However a few times (out of nearly 20 visits) I have gone the meat hasn't been quite as perfectly cooked. Still the food is so delicious I get weekly cravings! Portions are generous. If I am starving I can eat the whole thing, but usually I take a snack home for later. Food quality is consistently good (but not great). Left-overs taste decently heated up the next day with no trouble for my light-constitution. Rice is included and the prices are very reasonable around $7-9 for most meals. Atmosphere is plain but fine. The noise can be a bit loud (mainly banging from kitchen) and tables are spaced closely (like many U.Dist. places) but I don't think twice about this since I'm here for the food! Service is good, and fast, though attentiveness can vary a bit. Still with a small effort of flagging you can get someone's attention who is happy to help you. I haven't had to wait more than 10 minutes, though the place is usually full. more

A decent Thai alternative 10/17/2005

I am a hardcore fan of Thai Tom's, even with the wait, the cramped quarters and the overall craziness. On the off chance that I am just not in the mood to wait there, I typically go down the street to Thaiger room. They are usually relatively crowded as well, but its not too hard to get a seat and the restaurant is much bigger. The food is definitely good there, just no Thai Tom :) I don't know if this is true, but I have heard that the person who runs Thaiger room is actually a relative of Tom. Anyone know for sure? more

Great Thai food 10/6/2005

This place has very good Thai food. I love Thai food and this is one of the better ones I've been to in Seattle. If you love spicy, which I do, this is the place. I had the eggplant with 4 stars and it was SPICY. Trust me I can handle spicy and this was up there. more

Good Thai Food 9/27/2005

Thai-ger Room is a popular Thai restaurant, and the space is pretty small, so expect that you'll have a bit of a wait to get seated during the busy meal times. They also do take-out and catering. The menu is pretty extensive and includes great vegetarian options. For vegetarian soups, I would recommend the Vegetable Soup with Tofu (mild because if you get it spicy it won't taste quite right). My friends really like the Phad Kee Mow so I'd recommend that as well. Pretty much everything on the menu is a safe bet. Be careful with the spiciness scale, though, because 5 stars really is extra hot. For your first trip I'd recommend ordering one star below you're normal level. more

Best Thai on the Ave 8/20/2005

Some of the best Thai food on the ave. The Tom Yum and Tom Kha soup are excellent,. Serving size is impressive and I have not been let down by any of the menu items I have sampled to date. Seating space is small, but not quite as bad as Thai Tom's down the street. Arrive early unless you like to stand. more

Maybe the best Thai in Seattle 8/19/2005

The Thaiger Room is some of the best Thai in Seattle. I eat vegetarian usually and they have the best tofu I have had at any Thai place around here. The dishes are very tasty and they have a good sized menu with yummy appetizers too. It’s very crowded during lunch time since it’s in the U-district, and the kitchen is open so it can get pretty hot and spicy in there, but I definitely recommend it. more

Great cheap Thai food 8/16/2005

I have dreams about Thai-ger Room's yellow curry. The potatoes are perfectly flavored, the curry well-spiced, the tofu (or chicken, or beef) cooked just right. The Phad Thai is fantastic, the Swimming Rama is super-yummy. The Drunken Noodles and the Golden Noodles are both worth a try. The only caution I would offer is that the cook has a heavy hand with the chili, so order one or two stars less spicy than you usually would. Thai-ger room is open until 10 most nights, they don't deliver but you can call ahead for take-out. Around dinner time (or lunch on weekdays) there's often a wait of 15 or 20 minutes, so be prepared to stand outside waiting for a table to open up. Entrees are $6-7 each. No Smoking. more
