We had the panang curry with chicken and the eggplant veggies, both medium spice. The eggplant dish had less eggplant but more other veggies than we anticipated but was delicious. I'd give this 4.5 stars if I could. Only criticism (and it is minor) is...More

We chose Krua Thai because of the great reviews and Krua did not disappoint. My drunken noodles were delicious, my wife’s red curry and vegetables were better than what we have back in New York. All the food was fresh and the staff was gracious...More

Great Thai food. The Panang Curry was delicious. We stopped on a whim and were very satisfied. We normally check trip advisor first but this time we checked after and all the reviews were good. Strongly recommend this place.

Enjoyed the food which was well presented and tasty. I recommend the tamarind fish, not too highly spiced and served with a mix of vegetables. Well worth a visit.
