We've eaten at every Thai restaurant in Austin, as well as having eaten at a fair number of Thai places in San Francisco and Seattle. In terms of the tastiness of the food, Thai Kitchen knocks our socks off. The food is simply wonderful. They are known for their hot and spicy menu items, but we've found that the really delicious items are the more tame ones. The chef possesses an extraordinarily deft touch with spices. He also cooks the vegetables and meats (tofu included) to perfection. This is very unusual. For example, the broccoli is always (and I mean always) tender-crisp, like broccoli should be. I've had the broccoli there (in various dishes) 40-50 times, and it is always perfect. How great is that? The food is so good that we cannot seem to go more than two weeks without paying it a visit. Although we are not vegetarians, we have gradually moved over to the vegetarian side of the menu because the over-30 vegetarian options are really quite delicious.

For some inexplicable reason, the soups are terrible. As someone who knows how difficult it is to create a really delicious soup, I normally wouldn't be surprised by a restaurant's failure to serve a good bowl of soup. However, the appetizers and entrees at Thai Kitchen are stupendous; shouldn't the chef's skill spill over into soupmaking? We've tried several of the soups at various times, and have always been terribly disappointed. With the exception of the soup, we've never been disappointed by the food, and this is over the course of approximately 50 dinners. At times, the service is slow, and apparently the air conditioner takes after the service--it is glacial. However, these are minor inconveniences. The food at Thai Kitchen will keep up coming back frequently, albeit with warm sweaters (even in the heat of summer, when the a/c creates a chill to rival Nanuk's stomping grounds.)

The people were nice but the food was awful, i would never suggest that anyone go there. Since i have moved here i have been telling all of my friends about how good food here is, but there is an exception to every rule and this place is it.

The food is definitely worth every penny here. The menu is full of great food and is varied enough that even a picky eater should be able to find something that makes their mouth water. It's a little bit too pricey to be an everyday stop but is s ...
