family and friends like this little thai restaurant.

they know spicy but wish their spicy dishes can taste differently instead of blending together (all can taste the same).

edgewater is a nice little community with good food. us thai is good, not best thai like others claim, but we would go back.

Pros: spicy spicy

Cons: spicy dishes can blend and taste similar

I don't understand the hype of this place. The curries are spicy/hot but that's about the only good thing about it. Where is the flavor?! It must have jumped off my plate.

I have been to several of the "top" Thai restaurants in the US and find US Thai Cafe to fall flat. Thai food is about balancing of flavors and it was lacking here.

Pineapple fried rice? Greasy in a bad way and had little bits here and there of pineapple (which is not good in fried rice, one of those dishes that sounds better on paper), papaya salad was bland (had better at New Saigon), crab won tons are just wrapper no filling (try China Cafe down the street)... I could go on but I'll stop.

I base my reviews on several tries at each establishment and after eating here 3 times and bringing home lots of leftovers (I hardly have leftovers if a place is good) to my poor mutt, we have to conclude it's just not that good. On to another place.

Pros: Nice staff

Cons: Not the best as declared

.

Best full flavored authentic thai food in Denver. period.

No one in town packs this much flavor into their Thai dishes. We could go on and on... simply put... the best.

As huge pad thai lovers we cannot resist this place! Definitely not your americanized bland thai. If you get the Thai hot, ITS HOT!

Love it!

Pros: best Thai in Denver area

Cons: None

We had the pad thai, curry, and they were not good. Furthermore, the papaya salad is one of the worst I have ever had in my life. And, the sticky rice was wrapped in saran wrap rather than in a bamboo holder as other Thai restaurants. Interesting how this always comes up on top with 5280 Magazine as the best Thai. Obviously, regular patrons have not had really good Thai food or just have low expectations. Over all, not impressed.

Pros: friendly service

Cons: Food isn't that great

Best pad thai in Denver by far. Be careful of the thai hot, it's the hottest food I've ever eaten. Medium is perfect. Really nice staff also.

Pros: pad thai

Cons: Closed on Mondays, I think.

I left this restaurant blissfully happy because the food was just that good. I had the green curry and loved it, I don't understand the previous reviewer who didn't. The food is unusual and made with pride and love. If the food at every restaurant tasted as perfectly prepared and flavored as it does at this place, there'd be no need for restaurant reviews. I ordered medium spice and it was hot! . . . I should've remembered that about Thai food. It did not detract, however, from the wonderful flavors laced throughout with all the beautiful and fun ingredients. I had trouble identifying what was eggplant and what were bamboo shoots, but now I know the difference (obviously an educational experience for me as well). Truly, this is what food was meant to be. . .wholesome, satisfying, and brilliantly delicious. I can't recommend this place highly enough.

Pros: the wonderful, very friendly staff

Cons: don't expect interior design

.

Awesome. Worth the drive If your not a local, best pad thai and joe the cook is fantastic. Friendly service, cant say enough good things, I would only recommend that the degree of spicyness can change from order to order, I recommend starting mild and ordering extra spices on the side

We ate here and thought the service was very friendly.
I have been on the search for great Pad Thai in Denver and finally found it. The sauce had a tangy tamarind flavor and was not greasy. It was perfect. HOWEVER, it comes with shrimp which were small and over cooked. I prefer it with tofu alone. Pass on the shrimp.
My husband had the green curry and it was spicy but tasted flat. I dont like curries that are watery and this one was.
The crab cheese wontons we ordered were about teh size of a fingernail-barely filled with anything. They should just call them fried wontons.
The spring rolls were supposed to come with shrimp and chicken-mine came w/just chicken, no shrimp.
I was not impressed with what was inside-shredded carrots and brown head lettuce with bean sprouts and a piece of chicken. It was served with peanut sauce. The rice paper wrap was chewy which i like-but some parts of it were really thick and it had to be scrapped. I wouldnt order those again.
Another thing that I hate is when restaurants put brown lettuce on a plate. They decorated ALL of their plates with head lettuce and most of it was brown, which is unappealing.
I would go back here for the pad thai for sure. I will have to try other dishes next time.

Pros: Killer Pad Thai

Cons: Pass on the spring rols, crab cheese wontons and green curry

I agree w/ previous reviewer -- the Drunken Noodles is incredible. Also their pineapple fried rice. I have 5 kids, and they love the food, too. The soup is great. Everything we've tried (and we order something different every time we come -- which is often -- in addition to the Drunken Noodles and Pineapple Chicken. The portions are large and the service is good.

You come to this place once, you'll come again and again and again.

Pros: food, authenticity

Cons: sometimes the waitstaff has a hard time understanding you (but that's part of its authenticity).

My husband and I ate here on the recommendation of a couple of friends and now we can't stop! We started with the Pad Thai (our favorite) and order something different each time in addition to the pad thai. We have had nothing that is bad or even mediocre for that matter. We've eaten Pad Thai all over Denver and this is our new favorite. Their Spring Rolls are amazing and the most unique that we've had. The drunken noodles are delicous. I can't say enough about how much we enjoy this restaraunt. We always order take-out. The ordering and pick-up has always been satisfying We have not dined in so we cannot comment on the restaurant service.
