We were hopeful upon entering this restaurant since our hotel recommended it. I wish we had dined elsewhere. Our waitress was very nice and helpful about what to order. Despite her assistance, it just wasn't good. My sticky rice was dried out and the chicken dish lacked flavor although it was attractively plated. Besides being bland, the chicken had that... More

If you eat at this restaurant, don't miss the Tom Kha Kai soup. I first tasted it here and loved it and I've ordered it in many Thai restaurants since but Riverwalk's is the absolute best. Closed Mondays. Skip the chicken satay - it tasted like chicken jerky. Most items on the menu are good. The Thai iced tea is... More

Excellent, authentic Thai cuisine. The ambiance is not the best--it can be quite noisy and crowded if busy--but well worth it. An option if weather is nice is takeout. There is a park next door

I ate at the Riverwalk several times and really enjoyed the food. The owner was very nice and helpful with selecting the food. The food came quickly, was nice and hot, and seemed authentic. Prices were good.

Food was just OK. Most of it was cold when it arrived at the table. Waiter was not friendly though he was very busy with a large group.

It might look small in size but it is gigantic in flavor and friendliness. The food is amazing and quantities are good. I usually have the Pad Thai but everything I have seen/tasted has been good. You will want to get there early.

We had been to Lava tons of times and never bothered to stop here , because who wants to eat Thai food in an old gas station? Locals recommended it and we finally gave it a try and were pleasantly surprised. Good curry and sticky rice, and the waitress helped us decide what to order and was very attentive. Best... More

A local recommended this to us and we saw several people eating this. We thought it must be good! We were not disappointed. They were busy and the service was kind of slow, but the food made up for it. It was delicious. This is a definite stop when you visit Lava Hot Springs.

Everything was cooked to order; easy to switch entrees up a bit. The food would have been in the excellent category except the chicken was over cooked and very dry. The sauce on my cashew chicken was exceptional. I subbed broccoli for the bell peppers in my dish. We each asked for sticky rice rather than steamed. It will definitely... More
