    Food is delicious. The service was poor and our fried rice came about 30 minutes after our appetizer. We had to flag the waitress down for almost everything including to run our credit card after getting us the bill. I didnt think it was too loud

    The food was absolutely delicious. However, I wish there were more waitresses to cater to the crowd they were somewhat busy and there were not enough waitresses to deal with everyone in a timely fashion. The noise level is extremely loud you have to yell to speak to the person you’re sitting across from or next to.

    The only experience that can be commented to is the service, ambiance and noise level. The service was so slow that we left after being seated for 15 minutes and no indication from servers that they were coming at any point soon.

    We celebrated our son's graduation here. The crispy whole snapper is one of the best things we've ever eaten. We happened to see it being brought to another diner and asked about it. We're so glad we did. The whole meal was enjoyable, but that was the highlight.

    Pleasantly surprised. The food was outstanding just as at Banana Blossom. The cocktails delicious. The service friendly and attentive, but relaxed. A bit loud, but we understand restaurants can't control how loud their diners are. Overall, a great experience.

    Great menu choices. The shrimp dumplings and the naan were amazing. Clams were tiny but the broth was delicious. Crab rice and chicken noodle entrees tasted good at first, but soon started feeling the sodium overload (or possibly MSG)? I would go back for small bites and a glass of wine or beer, but not a full dinner due to the saltiness. (I'm not on a low-sodium diet, and rarely feel the affects of sodium but we both did at this meal).

    I have been to this restaurant several times and the food is ALWAYS outstanding. I guess everyone else thinks so too as it is always pretty full of diners. This particular occasion was so busy the server apparently forgot to put in the order for our entrees! They apologized and comped but it was less than a great time post appetizers. We ended up taking it home as carry out 2 hours after we arrived. That said it was a server issue and hopefully will not be repeated. The food was outstanding even as carry out.

    First and foremost, Jessica, our server, was outstanding! She provided thoughtful insights and delicious recommendations. We suggest being seating in Jessica’s section for the most enjoyable dining experience. Secondly, the food was fantastic! Three people shared three appetizers and two entrees. The Crab rice was so delicious and mouth watering. We loved everything about Cho Thai and cannot wait to return!
