I have gotten food here three times. The first time, it was actually pretty decent. The second time, I got food to go. I had to throw out the Thai ice tea- the most foul tasting concoction I have ever had. The entree was barely passable.

Ok, so everyone has a bad day. Tonight I gave it another shot. The first thing that was terrible was the customer service. I came by myself, and there was one other table in the room of diners. After I ordered, a large group of people came in. Why exactly did their food come before mine? I cannot figure that out. Seems they forgot about little old me.

My tom yum soup finally arrives 25 minutes later. I take one spoonful and cannot go on. It's like they dumped in a cup of sugar. I have had some pretty sweet-but still edible-tom yum before. I could not eat this. On a positive note, they did not charge me for this soup.

My entree was pad kee mao. DO NOT ORDER THIS. When I have had this dish at other places, it usually has a nice mix of garlic, maybe thai basil, and perhaps some chili peppers. Their version was noodles with red pepper flakes dumped on it. I don't mind spicy, but I need some flavor with my spice. There was only heat and poorly cooked vegetables. The carrots were the worst. They were limp and horrible. I took a few mouthfuls, trying to scrape some of the chilli pepper off each mouthful. Finally, I gave up and asked for the check. I did NOT take home leftovers.

I did stop for sushi on the way home.

This is the worst Thai restaurant I have ever been to.

I came here a few weeks ago and I was a little bit disappointed. I ordered rice and it felt watery which is VERY strange. Also, my waitress seemed to be in a bad mood and it was inflicting on me and my friends.

I only went to this place once, and I won't be going again. The shrimp fried rice I ordered was very egg-y and the pasta was bland. A disappointing visit.

Cozy Noodle is a great place to go on a cold day ? the dcor is bright and spicy and so is the food. I usually go for lunch on a day I need a pick me up at work. The lunch specials are great values and come with an appetizer (cucumber salad, mini egg rolls, or spring rolls). Remember to ask for a tray of spicy sauces to kick it up a notch! When I go for dinner I always order the beef salad ? they really know how to do it!

This doesn't have the more refined Thai style and presentation of some of the other restaurants in the area. It's a tiny area crammed with odd lunchboxes on the wall and too many tables in too little space, but the food is very tasty and it's very inexpensive. The service is almost always snippy, but who cares. Your tastebuds will be going crazy for the Pad Thai and the Tom Yum Soup. Yummy.

Cozy is a great place to stop for some good food at a great price. The restaurant is a little small, so you may have to wait for a table, but it is worth it. Oh, they also deliver. :-)

They take some old favorites and give them a new twist and are a great bargain. Went in for lunch on Saturday afternoon - had soup, appetizer and entree for less than $10 per person. Try the Crispy Pad Thai or the Spicy Basil Leaves (really spicy). Not only is the food great, but the decor is fun and playful. The restrooms in the Sheffield location is a must see. The service is not as attentive as I would like, but the rest of the experience makes up for it.

This two-room restaurant--painted in a blithe mustard color--takes diners on a nostalgic trip with walls lined with robots, cars and action figures. Vintage Knight Rider and Woody Woodpecker lunchboxes throw back to a…
