The food is very good but the dining area can be very noisy. It is hard to carry on a conversation, especially at lunch time. Metered parking is available in the adjoining lot or on the street.

We have visited the Cozy Thai for lunch and for dinner. I would probably recommend the dinner with a full menu. The lemongrass chicken is fabulous but it doesn't taste like lemon at all! It's almost like a sweet barbecue or orange chicken but no breading. If you prefer to have alcohol with your meal you bring your own and... More

Arrived shortly after noon. It was already fairly crowded, Filled up quickly. Our server was prompt and friendly. Food arrived in a timely manner. Both of our meals were delicious! You get a lot of food and it's fairly priced. It's BYOB, not sure if there is a corkage fee. The place was clean as were the restrooms. Parking was... More

I have been in the culinary world for over 25 years as a professional chef ,as well as my husband. We love Thai food and are very familiar with this particular cuisine. We arrived at this restaurant and immediately were thrown off by the place and staff. The restaurant itself has potential to look nice but unfortunately it was dirty... More

This place is one of the best Thai restaurants in state college. I've been here since it opened and it has improved a lot. I love their shrimp pad Thai and drunken noodle! Spring rolls are good for appetizer! If you crave Thai food, definitely try this place out!

Chic Thai restaurant that can serve both authentic and toned down Thai dishes based on your preference. Portion is large and price is reasonable. The restaurant has different corners to serve couples and large group. Pad Thai and Chicken Pad Krapow on rice are my lunch favourite. Penang, Tom yum Kung or Pla, Green curry, Satay and Thai salad Somtam... More

I am a Thai food enthusiast, and I love Cozy Thai! The service is good, and menu large enough to have good choices, but not so many choices that you can't decide! Love the Thai Tea and warm peanut dressing on the lunch special salads.

I love the food at Cozy Thai but frequently the lunch service is slow. The restaurant can have only a moderate number of customers but the service is slow. They seat you quickly but it may take a while for drinks, food, and your check. They seem constantly understaffed. Conversely, if you order takeout ahead of time. The service is... More

Had a very good lunch at this spot. I would t recommend it for a couples dinner outing because it's counter service and limited seating. It's a nice place if you aren't planning a formal dining experience and probably caters to more if the college student crowd. It's the number 1 rated Thai place on TA.

Have eaten here many times -- often enough to know that today something was way off. We arrived at about 12:45, shortly after the lunch hour rush. We were seated in the rear of the dining room, the four-table section closest to the kitchen. Three tables were still littered with stuff from the previous users -- backpack, books, apron, half...
