Recently redecorated. Noisy, VERY crowded and small. Wheelchair accessible barely. Had to disturb other diners to get through aisle. Food becomes more americanized every time we go, but still excellent and the service is outstanding. Priced so that a family can easily afford.

The atmosphere was very nice, very clean restaurant and the servers were friendly. Our food on the other hand was very bland. I had the Tom Yum soup and chef shrimp fried rice. The rice lacked any flavor which was disappointing. It was more Asian-American than authentic Thai food.

Had the princess chicken today with soup & egg roll. Lunch special was only $6.99! Excellent, fresh, clean, great service & good parking. Separate checks with 11 girl friends yet our waitress wasn't flustered at all. Will return soon!

It's a small melon and black colored Victorian style house hidden amongst strip malls, but on the main street so not too hard to find. It was busy and crowded and we were told by the stores across the street later that it stays that way. The food was excellent, service was very fast. We had Pad Thai and were... More

Thai Cottage is one of our favorite restaurants. It's atmosphere in a quaint old house with an outside patio is unique and refreshing here in Corpus. My favorite is the red curry but I've never had anything bad here. The sticky rice dessert is delicious too. Our go-to for Thai food.

We had a groupof five adult professionals. Very good food. Good service. Prices are reasonable. All staff were very friendly. Loved the restaurant itself although it was a little too loud for me. Will definitely return.

Ten years ago, Thai Cottage was a favorite for dinner with friends, after a nice workout. We continued the tradition for several years... but we had a bad experience or two, then the quaint little place closed for a couple of weeks, and fell from our radar. A couple of months ago, I went there with a group from work... More

First time eating Thai food and it was delicious. The papaya salad was real yummy and the sweet sticky rice and mango were out of this world! I didn't care too much for the green curry chicken but it might just be one of those things you either hate or love.
