Thai One On is one of our favorite places for any meal, once a week; sometimes more... Working in Lake City and living only a few miles therefrom allows us to visit Thai One On regularly. We take family and friends and they fall in love as much as we have.
Appetizer: crispy crab won tons - so good. Also this warm chile and steak salad, with this great vinegar dressing - to die for!!
Entrees - Phad Thai and Pineapple Curry!! Who woulda thunk it??? Thai Iced tea is a favorite.
Employees are great; always friendly. Food is always hot and full of flavor.
Keep up the great work!

This restaurant definitely has a wide range of pros and cons. The pros include good food - though the cooking can be hit or miss. Half the time your food will come out burnt. It really depends on the cook in the kitchen for that day. The staff is cordial but not friendly. I don't think I've ever seen any server ever smile there. The problem with the food is that it's extremely overpriced --and they charge you for extra anything. I've never known a thai restaurant to charge for limes with pad thai, but they do. Want a little extra peanut sauce? $2.00. It's pretty ridiculous. The list goes on and on. It's a good neighborhood joint but not worth the trip if you live far away. I will say that their crab rangoons are delicious, as is their pad see ew (when it's not burnt). They have good Thai iced tea and coffee, but they fill the glass up to the brim with ice, so in the end, you get more ice than your actual drink. Their red curry is par to none and very tasty - but half the time they forget to add half the ingredients that are supposed to go in it. It's definitely a toss-up based on the day whether you're experience will be a good one or a negative one.

Cons: Unfriendly service, overpriced, extra add-on charges

Look mate! If you were said the owner was so rude. So do you! Maybe it wasn't they don't want to do business with American. Maybe It was just YOU. You think you own this states huh? I'm an American as much as you do. If you have such attitudes, you are not better than them. I sympathize with people who make the judgment . If I were the owner , I'd never want you to come back neither. I'd better go feed the elephant than cook the bloody food for you.

Great Thai Food and family friendly restaurant. Conveniently located on Lake City Way, although parking can be tricky. Parking lot in the back of the restaurant or park along 30th.

I went here when they first opened and kept going because I used to work in an office right across the street. The restaurant is decorated very nicely and the service is great as well. In addition to the Phad Thai they have a chicken basil dish that is delicious also. If you are in the Lake City area this restaurant is a must.

Started going here when they first opened up and for a long time it was absolutely our favorite Thai restaurant. The decor is really nice and the food is excellent. The Thai iced teas are top notch. It did slip a little bit after being around for a year but overall is still pretty good. The Swimming Rama is very good with a great peanut sauce.

Actually, the food quality slipped only from excellent to very good - the wait's started getting longer and yet the staff was not quite recognizing it- but once seated and especially once eating all but once felt like it was a great experience. In fact, only since finding a slightly better Thai place elsewhere in the city did Thai One On drop from our favorite.

We have dined their many times now and enjoyed it each trip.
Fridays can be very busy with take out orders but we have experienced friendly service. I like the way the staff ask how spicy you care for your order each time. The full bar is a plus.
Is it worth a drive across town in rush hour? Probably not.
However, if you are in the area it's worth a stop.
Thai One On is neat and clean with nice decor for a neighborhood eatery.

Pros: Good food an good value

Cons: Busy Friday nights and some Saturdays

Thai One On has reliably good thai food with a nice atmosphere. It is a bit more expensive than other thai restaurants in Lake City, but the service and ambiance are worth it.

i was a repeat customer until last night, when a server was very very RUDE to me and my family. She was rude beyond belief! As a food lover I eat out 3x a week and went all over the world for culinary experiences, and believe it or not last night on Thai One On I had the worst time in a restaurant ever. This server was very rude and ignored us for a long time only because we sat without her seating us first! ( my brother had seated himself before couple times and it was ok )and the restaurant was half empty when we got there. If she told us nicely we would be understand but she told us rudely with a sour face and tried to blame us for the lack of service, like the menu, plates, fork/spoon, water and dirty table. She blamed us twice, first when we tried to order the food and second when we tried to ask her nicely to wipe off our table since she was done cleaning the table next to us. In the end, I tried to tell her that she was being rude but instead she told me that if i have any complain to write a letter to her boss and snobbishly asked me if I want her full name. She didn't even admit that what she did was wrong. For this server, whose name Jang, Thank you for ruining our night, you have too much ego and you shouldn't be a server in a restaurant. I would never come back again and I won't recommend any of my friends and colleagues to come to this restaurant. There are a lot of other good Thai restaurants around with a better service and friendlier staff and better food!

Avoid this place unless you want to "thai on" a healthy regret of having spent money here. The food is pretty much generic Americanized slop that ends up tasting the same no matter what you order, a common pitfall of Thai cuisine in this country. We ordered a couple of rice paper-wrapped spring rolls and the imbeciles at this restaurant wrapped them to go so tightly in saran-wrap that it was not possible to retrieve them in one piece.

This is my favorite Thai restaurant for in house, take-out and delivery. The food is consistently great, I highly recommend the all the curry dishes, all the seafood (especially Chu chi pla), the veggies are always fresh, lively and delectable. I've returned here often, I am always greeted cheerfully, recognized, and treated like a valued customer. At times the wait staff is on the youthful, possibly less experienced side, but they are always very sweet ? just be kind. They always get my take-out and delivery orders right (never open the box to a surprise). I?m hooked!

The waitress was rude from the minute we walked in. she doesnt smile, she doesn't respond to you when you say thank you, and rushes you while you are trying to decide on what to order. Food is too americanized and pricey. Serving was small. We sat there for 15 mins for our checks while staring at all the workers as they chatted away. She threw tossed the check on our table. It was our first and last time there. Never was treated that bad ever.

I love the food here but I recommend ordering takeout. Last time I ate there the service was horrible, my friends food arrived 20 minutes before mine. We didnt eat all our food and the waitress practically threw the take out boxes at us while tables around us had their food boxed and brought to the table. Unfortunate since the food really is great.

There are so many Thai places to choose from now. we have tried dozens in Seattle over the past 20 years (when there were only a handful) and keep exploring new ones as they crop up - we keep going back here over and over again, these guys are definitely worth trying. In addition to the standards, they have several interesting and unique dishes on the menu, I recommend the Forest Curry as well as the Rainbow (seafood) Salad , both truly great dishes. Flavors are always balanced, never over or under sauced and "hot" isn't just a handful of chili pepper flakes thrown in at the end. We've been returned dozens of times and find the food to be consistently great and service solidly above average. It has a very nice bar but it doesn't get used very much. The decor is upscale and quite nice but it does have unusual tables and chairs, quite lovely but not a whole lot of room for western feet if you like to stretch out to make room for more great food. Only weakness I've found is truly a small one - their thai iced tea is OK but they premix it every day so you can't request a change to the dairy ratio or avoid it altogether. Enjoy!

Stylish atmosphere and the food is pretty good. The service was a little slow, but as one reviewer mentioned, the courtesy more than makes up for the delay. A touch on the pricey side, but worth checking out.

...and have never been let down. The staff here is so wonderful and sweet. They'll keep the place open past their regular hours if you're in there taking your time and not paying attention to the hour. They always make you feel at home and the interior is so beautifully decorated. Nice comfortable booths which are cushy and soft. Their pad see iew is extra yummy, as are their pomegranate martinis! I discovered their drink menu one night when I wanted to avoid some of the downtown traffic over the holidays. They have a cutesy little bar in the back, and the bartenders are very helpful and can mix up a great drink. I'm so happy to have this place in Lake City!

Thai One On is my new favorite Thai restaurant near my house. Their phad thai is great, not the sweet, ketchup-y type that I usually classify as "American" Thai. I love the wonton soup, the broth is delicious, the wontons are meaty, and there are lots of them (plus barbequed pork) in the soup. Tup Tim Thai used to be my favorite place for fried rice, but this restaurant definitely rivals it. I really like Marlai Thai as well, but Thai One On is significantly cheaper. The only thing they are missing is the beef and tomato dish Marlai Thai makes....The atmosphere is great, I love the mod bar, and the staff is very friendly. I have been there several times, and have yet to have a bad experience. They have even been a little slow, but their courteousness made up for it.

I have eaten at this place 3 times in last 2 weeks! I sit at work and CRAVE it! They have a great menu with lots to choose from. The food is always bursting with authentic thai flavors, the vegetables are fresh and crisp, and the interior of the place is inviting!

Thai One On is tastefully (if whimsically) decorated and has a very lively feel. It's one of very few restaurants in Lake City that I can describe with a straight face as being classy. The food is slightly more expensive than at most Thai places, but the quality of the ingredients, preparation, and service more than justify it. The waitstaff has always been friendly and attentive. The vast menu includes a nice selection of affordable desserts. I've had good experiences with both rice- and noodble-based dishes, but I must warn you if you are new to Thai - anything above 2 or 3 on the spice scale is very, very hot!
