I absolutely love this place!! My sister who lives out of town says this is a "MUST" please to go every time she comes to visit. The staff is very personable and very helpful in selecting your dishes. They will change anything to suit your tastes also. The owner also always stops by and talks to you to make sure everything is going well and offer suggestions for your next time there. There is so much flavor in every bite. Be sure and try the coconut ice cream. It is unbelievably good!!

My husband I had never tried Thai food before. We decided to check out this restaurant. Not only was the food GREAT, the service was even BETTER!!! The owner and his staff made us feel right at home! The owner himself stopped by our table and asked us if we had ever had Thai before, asked what we like best (spice, noodles, rice,etc.) he then gave us suggestions!! I can not even remember when the last time I have had such a GREAT overall experience!! We will be back the next time we are in Evansville!!

My husband and I visited the restaurant last night and I was blown away. The food was fantastic and the service was fantastic also. The owner is charming and very personable and helpful in explaining the dishes. I've never had Thai food before and have found my new favorite. I'm ready to go back as soon as possible. It was a very good experience all around.

My new favorite restuarant; the food is fabulous. I have a bunch of food allergies and I have never had any problem communicating to the servers what I can't have, and they are perfectly willing to make adjustments for me to avoid allergens. If there is no way to do that, they make suggestions and/or make something special. If you are allergic to peanuts and have avoided Thai for that reason, this is a good place to go to get Thai dishes without them. The owners are very aware of all ingredients in the foods. Not to mention it's the best Thai food I've ever eaten. I highly recommend the Panang Salmon, fresh rolls, Tom Kah Gai, and the desserts. Everything is just really fresh and the atmosphere is pleasant.

One word can describe this restaurant, AMAZING! The staff are very personable and always willing to recommend an item based on your likes. Food is unbelievably good. Highly recommend the special thai spring rolls and cucumber sauce. The curry dishes are wonderful. Thai food is very unquie in that every bite you discover something different about the dish. Would highly recommed this restaurant to anyone.

My husband and I first discovered Thai Cuisine last Sunday for our anniversary. We had never had Thai food before and wanted to try something new. I have to say the food was beyond amazing. We eat out at least once a week and have tried nearly everything. The food is wonderful. We have eaten there twice in the last 5 days and have ordered something different each time plus different appetizers. The spring rolls are the BEST I have ever had in my entire life. The owners are so nice and have always talked to us. Joe suggested I add Lime juice to my food and it was even more amazing. I can not say enough wonderful things about this place. We plan on going back Sunday for Mother's Day! I am going to try the homemade coconut ice cream. Yum!!!

I have been to a lot of Thai restaurants in a lot of different places but this one is the best! My wife is addicted to their Fried Rice and I have been trying to work my way through the menu. Their curries are great but I am repeatedly drawn back to their soups. My main stay is the noodle soup but every once in a while I have to go all out for their coconut soup and the many layers of flavor it offers.

I'm so glad that Evansville has a Thai restaurant... I can be found dining there once a week (and that doesn't include all of the orders that I carry-out) Joe is so personable and the food is amazing. I highly recommend this place!

My wife Lori and I LOVE this place. There has been more than 1 occassion that we have driven the 35 minutes to Evansville to eat here. After relocating to Mt. Carmel, IL from a city that had a Thai restaurant we were sad that we wouldn't get a chance to eat Thai food frequently, but now that we found Thai Cuisine we are MUCH happier. Thank you to all the staff that works here. In Christ, Nate

Joe and his family are warm, gracious hosts. He spent time with us discussing the menu as well as other things. The food is amazing and we will be back quite often. Tell your friends - no, bring your friends!!

My husband and I made a repeat visit to this newer Evansville restaurant today. The dish I had last time - Pad Thai - was so good that I ordered it again today. Neither of us had ever had Thai food before, so we really enjoyed our visit. The owner, Joe, is very friendly and helpful and the service is great. We went for lunch, and the prices are very reasonable. We also had the chicken satay with peanut sauce for an appetizer and it was mouthwatering. Our experience there, both times, has been excellent and we plan to return as often as we can. Joe recognizes repeat customers and makes suggestions on what to order and how the food is prepared. You have to try this place! The food is spicy, but not too much, just right. Enjoy!
