Houston Press' Description

This is one of the few restaurants in Houston that offers large portions of authentic Thai cooking, a relaxing ambience and a fairly extensive wine list. Plus, its second-story location gives the effect of dining in a tree house. The kitchen shows some creativity, using basil, pineapple, wine and garlic along with the traditional fiery Thai curries and chilies. A good-value buffet is arrayed at lunch, but of course the best dishes (such as crab cakes, green chicken curry, crusted ginger sesame beef and drunken chicken) must be ordered à la carte.

    They make nice tom yum goong, summer rolls and I like their red curry. I've always gotten it as take out - I don't usually eat there. Overall good Thai food that's reasonably priced and convenient.

Tips from foursquare

  • Nupur B. on 10/11/13

    Thai spice has the best soups (Tom Yum). Their hot sake isn't too bad either. Good food and great outdoor, upper deck seating- good idea on a nice day with nice weather.

    Not so good for dinner... Thai Cottage is much better

  • Scott F. on 02/03/14

    The buffet on weekdays usually has over ten main dishes, two soups, and a large amount if cold items. It's a great deal!

  • Marc S. on 12/07/13

    Ask for extra hot spices

  • Miranda D. on 02/18/13

    Always a fan since 10 yrs back!
