Houston Press' Description
Tucked away in an unassuming strip mall on Richmond near Hillcroft, Thai Gourmet is one of those places that are authentically Thai yet still accessible to relatively untutored palates. Dishes like Penang Beef ordered "Thai hot" may scorch the tongue in true Thai style, while others, like the basil beef or their excellent tom kha gai coconut chicken lemongrass soup, make room for an exploration of Thai flavors without the requisite spicy sting. The decor of wall hangings with Thai imagery creates an exotic ambience that is well-appointed enough for a nice date or family meal, yet readily caters to clientele wanting takeout. Great Thai food at reasonable prices with a nice atmosphere and courteous waitstaff make this place a sure bet for Thai anytime.
Tips from foursquare
Pretty good place. The red curry almost tastes 100% authentic and made-from-scratch. Vegetable dishes really nicely done, veggies cooked perfectly. Cheese rolls rocks. Lunch is so reasonable, too.
The dumplings are the best
The eggplant and chicken is legit.

You can't go wrong with the Eggplant Chopped Chicken and the Garlic Shrimp! I like them both mild.
