Good place for simple Thai in downtown Palo Alto.

★★★★☆

Good place for simple Thai in downtown Palo Alto.

Pros: Example: best croissants in town

Cons: What are the drawbacks?

.

Off the main street in Palo Alto, so it's not usually busy and there's usually no wait. Great Thai food in an interesting atmosphere.

Full bar with decent wines.

Order the Fried tofu, Satay, and Penang Curry!

I would definitely recommend this restaurant. We did take-out. The service was prompt, we ordered chicken pad-thai which was good, as well as the spring rolls, which tasted fresh. The best dish was the beef satay though! They give you large pieces of beef, which are very tender and delicous! The peanut sauce is also very good, very creamy...not the sauce and oil separated that you sometimes find at other places.

Although the prices have gone up a bit since Thaiphoon took over from the original Thai restaurant in this location, the food is still outstanding. Extremely fresh meat and veggies, real prawns, authentic sauces. The curry dipping sauce that comes with the Roti prata is outstanding! You can find something to please almost any palate, from conservative to the most adventurous. Especially good are the salmon curry and the tom ka gai soup!

My boyfriend and I read a few reviews about Thai restaurants in the Palo Alto area before deciding on this one, and we're glad we did! We started with the shrimp spring rolls and they were fresh and delicious and came with 3 great sauces. For dinner we had the red curry and green curry, both flavorful and the perfect balance of vegetables and chicken. A word of caution, we both enjoy spicy food and ordered our entrees "5 star." Even for heat-lovers, this was a bit too spicy for us. We were sweating bullets. If you enjoy spicy, I would recommend ordering 3 star. It is still spicy without overpowering the food. The service was also friendly and prompt.

Great, authentic Thai food -- and they'll dish it out as spicy as you ask for. Also some interesting fusion plates (the Mango Tango chicken is a treat). The interior decorations are simple and sparing. Usually quiet, but can go from tranquil to packed in less than 10 minutes once all us suburbanites get home from work.

I was there with my girl friend. We had Fresh Spring Rolls with shrimps for appertizer, then we had stir fried Mango Chicken with cashew and Panang Beef Curry. The food was wonderful. For beverage, my girl friend had Tango with Mango cocktail, I had me a large 20 oz. of Singha Thai beer. We highly recommend this place. It's been open for 6 months. We cannot wait to go back again soon.
