The service was just bad - after an hour there was still no food. Guests were leaving the restaurant. The staff was pretty unapologetic. Apparently this is what passes as normal at the place.

This is not fine dining - the chairs are uncomfortable and the tables kind of sticky, but the food was very good. I ordered a panang curry and they customized it for me - delicious, but spicier than I ordered. There are meat and vegetarian options. The crab rangoon appetizer was very weird - very thick and chewy instead of... More

I've been coming to this restaurant and ordering takeout for over a year now and never have I had a problem until today. I ordered what I always order, Red Curry which comes with bamboo, green beans, bell peppers, and sweet basil. I order that with no bell peppers and add potatoes. We ordered for take out and my curry... More

My wife and I visited Thai Flavors around 5:30pm. It was fairly busy when we arrived. And it was very busy by the time we left. We were greeted right away and seated at a table towards the middle of the restaurant. Our server was wonderful! She was a joy to visit with and took great care of us during... More

I just like the folks here, and the quiet is nice, with no TV and no music...thank you, so rare!. The food is tasty and reasonably priced. For dinner we had the fresh spring rolls...really a salad in a rice wrap, very fresh and enjoyed the ginger sauce. The appetizer rice noodle soup with pork and many cooked vegetables was... More

We had two grandchildren and a limited amount of time, so we called ahead, ordered, and then picked it up. I had chicken, rice, and pineapple--a great choice without worrying about too much spice. The food was great and the portions large. The kids swore that the chicken was the best they had ever eaten. We will be back.

I was in town for business and was craving Thai. Found this, somewhat highly rated, Thai restaurant on TripAdvisor. Easily the worst I have ever had. My meal, a commonly order meal at any Thai restaurant, tasted like nothing. Eggs were scrambled in it very weirdly. It is fast food like quality. Won't go back.

My wife and I ate lunch here with friends while attending a conference in downtown Iowa City. The Thai food was decent enough, but not as good as Thai restaurants we have eaten at in Des Moines or Ames. The service was cheerful but slow. My hot and sour soup was o.k.; pot stickers very good. My wife enjoyed her... More

I love here's Pad Thai! Very light and clean flavor, but spicy! Curry and fried rice is also very good. Price is reasonable, most of them are under $10.
