Food is great, however the waiting period of the take-away orders are crazy. Sat 50min for 1 plain green curry.

I was a bit sceptical about this resturant in the beginning as I have lived in Thailand and know a lot about the food. However this place does a great job. Really good food and the service is good too unlike Thailand. Lol.

This spot is just so amazing. The food, especially the curries (try panang, musuman, green, yellow...any one). We usually have the savoury mince starter and then share a curry with jasmine rice or noodles. The staff greets us by name, and it is very relaxed.

Love eating here. Prices are very reasonable, ambiance is great, and food is wonderful. Had the crispy pork on more that one occasion, and it is great. Definitely recommended.

Our favorite Thai restaurant close to home, if not only for the savory mince. Do it yourself, spicy mince wrapped in lettuce leaves, can have as a starter, main and desert. Probably the only dish on the menu I have not seen in Thailand. Rest of the meals are as good as anything I have had in Thailand. Revamped inside,... More

I often go to Kai Thai when I'm in the mood for good flavour. The rice (jasmine and fried) are always delicious although the noodles can be a bit cold and sticky. I also think the curries could have a little more meat, by the time you get your second scoop it's just sauce, really. Really really amazing sauce, mind... More

I've never liked duck but the duck with lichi little bit of chilli with and, what tastes like lemon gras, was recommended to me and it is frigging awesome! I'll come back here.

Our family felt like an evening out and we decided on the local Thai. I had the green curry, whilst my mom had a soup and my brother the red curry. All were fantastic and we all kept commenting on how good our meals were. Service was extremely fast and efficient and came with a smile. A great restaurant that... More

We have been coming to Kai Thai in Rabie Street for a long time. However as good as the food is the service is shocking and slow. So bad that I could leave and they wouldn't even know. I would complain but there is no manager. Perhaps you should only use them for take-aways - pre-order, collect and run.
