Best

I'm writing to you to tell you how much we have enjoyed the Tai Lai Restaurant in downtown Kirkland. We've been loyal customers since the restaurant opened almost eight years ago...

Worst

Okay, so upon recommendation of a couple friends, we went here for dinner. It's not the worst Thai food I've had but I've definitely had better. They make their dishes too sweet...

We love Lai-Thai 1/25/2011

I'm writing to you to tell you how much we have enjoyed the Tai Lai Restaurant in downtown Kirkland. We've been loyal customers since the restaurant opened almost eight years ago. There are many reasons we continue to chose Tai Lai as a favorite eating establishment for our family and friends, and also, when my husband and I want a friendly, serene and enjoyable meal alone. more

Take Out portions way too small for price 11/9/2010

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Lai Thai and use to come here for dinner multiple times a week. But soon their prices rose and along with it, their take out portions got smaller and smaller. Not worth it when I can go up the street or literally across it to get loaded up on good thai for almost a dollar less. Sorry Lai Thai, your food is wonderful!! but your prices are too much and portions too little compared to the competition. more

Phad Thai is to die for! 8/6/2009

When I need my fix I go here...their Phad Thai is amazing! I'm a little disappointed that their prices went up and quantity went down, so that's why I say "fix", because I can no longer afford to eat here as often as I did. I even went as far as to boycott them for their changes, but I just couldn't stay away...it's still worth it :) Pros: Great customer service, yummy thai, nice location Cons: Pricey and they made their quantities smaller :( more

Thai Find 9/5/2008

We found a nice Thai restaurant in Lai-Thai. If you like spicy Thai food and don't mind a short wait from time to time you can eat here and enjoy your experience. more

Sloooooow service 4/2/2008

I've been to this restaurant twice now and both times the food has been good, but service is so slow that it becomes irritating and trumps the food quality. We waited quite awhile for our food. We had to ask twice for chopsticks. We waited over 15 minutes for the waitress to figure out how to split our check. You can tell by looking around that you're not the only table playing the waiting game. At least this time there were two waitresses; the first time I went there was one waitress for all tables. Good food and menu options (I like the Crab Delight appetizers), but only go if you're not in a hurry and are a very patient person! I don't think I'll ever dine-in again, but I may get take-out if I'm in the neighborhood. Pros: Good menu, good food Cons: Slow service, hard to find nearby parking at times more

Hot or not? 7/26/2007

Okay, if you're in Kirkland and you want Thai food this is the place to find it. In my opinion it is better than the joint by QFC in Parkplace. But......is it me or is the food never as hot as i order it? I like my Thai food hot, and in most places when i order 5 stars i can't handle the heat, but at Lai Thai ordering 4 or 5 stars seems like ordering 2 or 3. All i am saying is the food is good, but make sure you ask for the side of peppers and hot sauces if you like it hot. more

Fabulous Thai on the eastside! Kirkland delight. 12/31/2006

What a find! This little gem on the eastside is a great place for lunch or dinner. This is the best Thai we have had on the eastside! The quiet, candlelit decor is great for dinner chat or dates. In the shopping area of downtown Kirkland and surrounded by neat shops and galleries, this restaurant offers a large variety of dishes spiced exactly as requested and delicious every time. Service is friendly and prompt. Pros: Great food and service; Very good menu selection; Reasonalbe Prices; Casual Dress; Candlelit Setting; Good location - near Lake Washington and shopping more

Best Thai in Town! 11/11/2006

My husband and I have been eating at Lai-Thai ever since moving to the area. We lived in Bellevue when we first found this extraordinary Asian food. Now we live in Sammamish and continue to travel all the way to Kirkland to have our Thai. I love that I can customize my order by asking for additional ingredients to be added to my curry. The wait staff have always been charming to us so I am somewhat perplexed by any negative comments. I have never been refused any time I have asked for an additional veggie to be added or when a substitution was requested - exemplary service always for us. Pros: Delicious Food, Nice atmosphere, Good service, Flexible Chef more

Seriously skeptical of some of these negative reviews 10/22/2006

I have to wonder if some of the other reviewers who prominently suggest alternative, nearby Thai restaurants are being a bit disingenous (to say the least). It seems utterly perplexing that Lai Thai can be accused of "inconsistency," because that's their strong point. I've been dining there at least a couple of times per month since they opened and have never received anything less than the best phad thai in the greater Seattle area. The quality and consistency standards are absolutely first rate; this is a place that does NOT cut corners. If you had a bad experience there, give them another chance. If the same bad thing happens twice, I've gotta believe it's you. Pros: Consistently-great Thai food Cons: Finding free parking can be a bit challenging, for those who don't want to walk more

Didn't even acknowledge their customers!! 10/21/2006

My boyfriend and I decided to go to Lai-Thai last night - we walked into the place and waited.. and waited... and waited!! The waitstaff NEVER acknowledged us, not for a whole five minutes! Not a nod, not a 'I'll be right with you,' nothing! One particular waitress kept serving people water or taking orders, but not once did she look in our direction. Another couple walked in a few minutes after us, as we were leaving (deciding we weren't willing to look like fools standing there without any service) and we wished them luck getting service. Five minutes later, as my boyfriend and I walked the strip and passed by Lai-Thai again, the couple was STILL there, and the guy looked at us through the window and threw his hands up in the air in disgust - they couldn't get any service either! I will never, ever try and go there again. Pros: Um.. didn't get the chance Cons: Zero service, rude waitstaff more

Not the worst Thai, but definitely disappointed 10/16/2006

Okay, so upon recommendation of a couple friends, we went here for dinner. It's not the worst Thai food I've had but I've definitely had better. They make their dishes too sweet and when you try to get spicy, it's not spicy. My brother ordered the beef salad with 4 stars and after having that, he ordered the spicy shrimp salad and had it 8 stars. I tried it, and it was MAYBE medium spicy (if that). It's okay Thai food, but we're not going back there again. Pros: Atmosphere Cons: Food, service, price more

Delicious food, service, ambiance 7/12/2006

We have walked down to our favorite Thai restaurant at least a dozen times in the last year. Each time, without fail, our food was delicious and the service outstanding. I cannot imagine where "ridiculously inconsistant" was eating or what they were eating, but it certainly could not have been at Lai Thai. We spent a month in Thailand, eating the exact same wonderful food every single day, only to return and walk down to Lai Thai for more of the very same food. I suspect a very jealous rival wrote the bad review. Pros: EVERYTHING was great, food, service Cons: NOTHING was bad at all more

Disappointing... 7/2/2006

We went here because we heard it was the best Thai place on the Eastside. The dishes were small and watered down, service was so-so. We'll continue our quest for a great Thai restaurant. Pros: Decor Cons: Average food more

Average Thai food - although owner is cute;-) 4/3/2006

In contrast to the other Thai restaurants on the Eastside this one falls a bit below average. The ambiance is good and the furnishings are great - imported from Thailand. The food quality is average - below average portions mixed with an abundance of vegetables. The one good quality is the owner - she is friendly and quite cute ;-) more

One of the Best in Kirkland 3/10/2006

I have no idea what "Ridiculously Inconsistent" is talking about. The service has always been prompt and the prices are reasonable. As for the quality of the food, for the past month, it has been great! There are times where the portions are way too much for lunches. Unlike another thai restaurant on Lakeshore, your meals arrive in less than 30 minutes. It's a great place to bring clients to. Pros: service, food, prices Cons: chef changes in Feb more

Ridiculously Inconsistent 2/21/2006

We have ordered food from Lai Thai on several occasions, and it is almost always terrible, to the point where my husband and I throw our meals away after about 10 bites. There has been a couple of times where it was some of the best I've ever eaten, so we continued to give it a chance. The majority of the time, the food has been disappointingly bad to the point of being inedible, and over-priced. We have regretted ordering from there too many times - we will not be ordering from there again. Cons: Expensive, Inconsistent more

Lai-Thai is AWESOME!!! 6/25/2005

The Spring Rolls are light, refreshingly flavorful as are the other appetizers. The atmosphere authentic, and the service is fantastic. Sweet smiles and gracious hosting, as Phad-thai comes out, and it is exquisite. Heavenly beef, Chicken Satay just marvelously done. A bit of authenticity and fantastic flavors await you only to be pleasantly surprized by the reasonable price. No wonder Lai-Thai is widely viewed as the East Side's best Thai restaurant. You will be delighted. Pros: Exquisite Food, Excellent Service, Great Price more

rude staff and inconsistent food 6/3/2005

THe food is incosistant and the service is terrible. The seating is usually pretty prompt but the portions are small and cheap (ie the more expensive ingredients are almost non existant in the meal). If you do encounter problems with the meal it is likely that the problems will not be fixed and if they are you will encounter attitude and snears. If you want good Thai food, and good service go to any of the other thai places in Kirkland. more
