Diner Reviews
  • "We used a Groupon which allowed me to go and explore and even with that the meal was what i considered to be high. The taste of the food very good and ingredients appeared to be fresh. One comment, for my taste, the seafood curry had too much sauce and that is the reason for the 3 star because the seafood was soaked in the sauce. I do not like soggy fried seafood and that was the case if I had not removed it. My husband's dish was wonderful. For dessert we had a slice of chocolate cake and I was not impressed. I suggest they reconsider the choice of the chocolate cake because it is not tasty, does not appear to be homemade like the server suggested and it did not appear to be fresh."

  • "There is a full bar with speciality cocktails that are quite good. Steamed Dumpling appetizer was excellent- as was Shrimp Red Curry entree. The curry did not come with enough rice, but the waiter noticed this and brought more without being asked. Dining partner had Mee Grob which was good but not quite on the level of the curry. Owner - a very nice lady who goes by Mama - was working the floor and making sure guests were well attended. Only real negative was the noise level, but this may have been louder than usual, as even the waiter commented on it. Overall a very good dining experience and very well priced for the quality of food and service provided. Will be going back again soon."

  • "This was an awesome experience. I was having trouble deciding between 2 dishes so the waitress suggested that i just try both....I looked at her and said I cant eat that much and she laughed. She said they would give me a half order of each....PERFECT IDEA. the food was great service was unbeatable. everything was refilled as you emptied it, the wait staff was very attentive and the ambiance was nice and relaxing. the area is very open so you will have some noise but not enough to distract you from the amazing food."

  • "This big open & mostly empty space (empty as far as patrons) was a disappointment from the minute we walked in. The menu is all over the Asian Map; it is hardly a Thai restaurant. Service was mediocre at best, spring rolls were greasy, and the drunken noodle dish had way too much sauce & the vegetables in it were over cooked. Would not return again"

  • "I have been here on other occasions and really liked it....this time the food was bland and service was terrible. My iced tea ran out and was never refilled (the server never came back to the table.) Really needs to go back to the way it was!"

  • "LaThai is definitely one of my favorite restaurants in New Orleans! I love that they are willing and able to accommodate my gluten free diet (medical reason...not for the fad). LaThai is delicious!"

  • "When we were seated there was some confusion and no one was servicing us. Finally the Chef came out apologized and took care of us. A take care of us he did! We ordered pad Thai, shrimp, pineapple fried rice. While waiting for our food he brought up food for the table. On the house! We ate so much that night we couldn't fit dessert. We've been here before and will definitely be back. The food is consistently great and probably the best Thai Asian fusion cuisine in NOLA."

  • "I made a reservation on open table for Monday May 5...upon taking a $20 cab ride we arrived and saw the sign on the door that they are closed on Mondays. Really disappointed that we were able to make a reservation on a dark night."

  • "About the idea of a fusion between Thai and New Orleans, but figured it was worth a try. And turns out that it works surprisingly well, mixing Thai flavorings and preparations with ingredients like oysters and soft-shell crab. Throw in a decent beer list and you're good to go. Interior is Spartan / utilitarian, probably not the best spot for a romantic date night."

  • "food was terrific, but the concrete floor and brick walls make it a very cacophonous environment."

  • "The food at La Thai is uniformly excellent. There is a large variety and we have not been served anything less than very good. Many of the dishes are outstanding and the prices are moderate."

  • "I purposely used OpenTable because I was looking for a res for Easter Sunday lunch in New Orleans. I assumed if the time was listed available and was confirmed, the restaurant was open. It wasn't. After a 2 hour drive, I was very disappointed not to mention now in NOLA w/ no res on Easter. OpenTable was very clear about my obligation to show up or cancel res, but what about La Thai? Are they not obligated to have current info for customers? "

  • "If you are looking for the best Thai food and best service in New Orleans, go to La Thai. Their superb dishes are served by an attentive wait staff. La Thai carries on the legacy of the Chauvin family's creativity, quality and hospitality."

  • "As a resident of Bangkok, I was pleasantly surprised by the menu choices and the genuine green curry taste of the seafood curry that I ordered. Many Americans confuse Thai curries with Indian ones, not knowing that Thai curries are much better than Indian curries, so perhaps an explanation on the menu or by the waiter is in order. The service was impeccable and the ambiance tasteful. I highly recommend this place in the trendy Uptown Prytania neighborhood. "

  • "Some plates were a little spicy for my taste but still very good."

  • "It can be hard sometimes to find a restaurant that serves gluten-free dishes, but La Thai has a plethora of options. They not only have specified gluten-free dishes on the menu, but the kitchen can accommodate any noodle dish to a gluten-free version. They also took out the vegetables I was allergic to, so those with allergies should have nothing to fear. Great place. "

  • "The service really couldn't be better. The food though was average. If my wife was writing this review, she'd rate the food higher because she enjoyed the veggie curry but my cashew chicken was too sweet and a little odd tasting. The kids rice noodles were good but also kind of sweet. Because of the exceptional service, I would return--I would just order something other than the cashew chicken. "

  • "Food was presented in a very nicely matter, but not terribly impressive in taste! Still a good place to go in groups and have a good time. Service was prompt and courteous."

  • "Looking for something different than the usual Creole/Cajun in New Orleans, we discovered this gem of a Thai restaurant Uptown. The food was excellent and service was very efficient. The noise level made it hard for the waiter to hear our order."

  • "I decided to treat my boyfriend to dinner to celebrate his birthday; a place that I thought had a variety of food to meet our unique needs. I was on a cleanse and he loves anything with noodles. Not only did I see hundreds of great reviews, but they have a pretty impressive menu (even some Ochsner certified meals). Parking was great even on a Saturday at 7pm. We ordered Crispy Coconut Shrimp (extremely good), Spicy Basil Shrimp (really good), and Seafood Curry (curry is strong).Chef Merlin is extremely outgoing and funny. If you are looking for an intimate place that is quiet, this is not the place for you because it was a bit noisy (kids & groups). If you are looking for a place that has the right balance of energy & romance this is it!"

  • "I've been trying to go to a new restaurant every week and I'm glad I chose this place it is awesome!! I'm trying not to double back on restaurants, as to be able to try them all, but I may have to bring the kids here or my special guy!!"

  • "Not much to say, overall a great experience and excellent thai food! The only thing I didn't like was the tip of 20% that was added automatically, I thought this was only applicable for a group of 6 persons or more, we were with 5 (Didn't make a big point or mentioned it)."
