We really were looking forward to good Thai food and were very disappointed. The server was very rude, extremely unfriendly. The pad thai could have been one of those frozen ready made meals at the grocery store,lukewarm,no lime, no cilantro, no green onions, over cooked noodles and bland chicken, it was sad, had to drown it with chile sauce. We... More

This is one of the best Thai food restaurants in Idaho. We drive a half hour (passing many closer Thai food joints) just to eat here.

I know many have raved about this cafe, but we found it to be only OK. The service was very rushed and the food was tepid. Even though we had ordered different dishes, they were almost identical with the sauce and taste. And our server brought our bill to us before we were finished; even if we had wanted anything...

You would never expect to find good Thai food in a reworked gas station in Lava Hot Springs, but...surprise! My wife would go a long way out of our way to get their hot & sour soup. I'm personally a fan of their Pad Thai, but we've enjoyed everything that we've tried on the menu. The services is usually just... More

We needed a light lunch and my wife wanted soup and fried rice sounded good to me. The cafe use to be a service station and they have done a good job of making it feel like you're in a restaurant. The staff was friendly and helpful, Thai food not being something I familiar with. My wife really enjoyed the... More

My husband and I ate at Riverwalk Thai during our first visit to Lava Hot Springs last year. We enjoyed it so much that we agreed we would do so again on our most recent visit. Things were even better the second time around! Last time we were there, the place was packed, and the owner was all business about... More

There are not to many places in town to eat.. This is certainly the most different. This is the only non American cuisine in town. While I would drive out of my way to stop, if your in town it's great.

This is a very busy restaurant , It is nice to see just a local place of business, there are no franchise's in Lava, which is nice for a change. I hope they keep it that way. If you are in a hurry, don't go here. The food is good. If you are expecting 5 * go to a different... More

This place offered good Thai food in a town with very few options. There were vegetarian dishes (and likely not many of these in town). The décor is simple - it a converted gas station. The owners were quite polite; our family had an occasionally raucous card game going on throughout dinner and they didn't seem to mind.
