I've been a regular customer of this restaurant for quite some time. It's always been great. On 5/14/17, I visited at 9:30 p for an easy meal. It came at 10 minutes til closing and it was made clear that I should be out by 10p. I was asked to pay my bill within 5 minutes of its arrival. Chairs... More

We like the food but what the restaurant uses to clean the tables over powers the smells of the food. The menus are falling apart, no soap in the ladies room and no towels in the men's room.

We stopped off the interstate for lunch and couldn't be happier with the food. Many options, affordable. Great flavor and presentation. Clean, hip atmosphere.

It's been a long time since I last ate here and there have been some changes/improvements. My wife and I came for a date lunch. We were quickly greeted and allowed to sit where we liked. The restaurant has been attractively divided by various lattices in places. It's nice - it give the feeling of intimacy without cutting you off... More

We were there for lunch on a Wednesday and both took advantage of the value the lunch menu offered. We both had different curry dishes. Quite tasty but nothing to make me jump for joy. I killed the budget when I ordered the squid salad appetizer for $8.95. It was quite a large amount so we shared it.Nice and spicy... More

My wife and i both enjoyed this place, which now bills itself simply as the House of Thai. It's in an older building and appears to be popular with Tennessee Tech folk. We have eaten at a number of Thai restaurants, and found the food here to be very good. I had a yellow curry and my wife had a... More

Having eaten at Thai restaurants from Maine to Florida, I've experienced all kinds of them.. House of Thai is not bad, based on the Street Noodles I had for lunch today. The first bite suggested good flavor but half way through the dish seemed bland. Service was pretty poor, and those white kids don't have the excuse Asians do of... More

It is the best Thai in Cookeville. I have had several things on the menu and they are all good. The service sometimes lacks a little.

Every time I have to come to Cookeville to get my Honda worked on, I have lunch at the House of Thai. The service can be hit or miss, but the food is always fantastic. They make some of the best pad Thai I've had. I'd be here weekly if it were not so far from home.
