Recently had lunch at Thai
Recently had lunch at Thai Kuu - first time. The food was excellent! I ordered the spicy curry with vegetable dish and this is the first time anyone has asked me if I desired it 'spicier' than noted! Absolutely.....it was super spicey just the way I like my curry. My lunchmates opted for the green curry and Avocado salad. Delicious. A great find!

What a gem. Lovely decor
What a gem. Lovely decor with napkins folded like 'Birds of Paradise'. I went with three girlfriends and we all ordered from the $19.95 menu which gave us soup, appetizer, main dish, AND dessert. Great value for outstanding food! Everything was terrific; my soup (won ton chicken) and dessert (ginger creme brulee) were the best I ever had. BYOB keeps price down, and they provide everything except the alcohol. SUPER service as well. Can't wait to return.

My best friend came to visit from D.C. Since she loves Thai food I searched all around the city for places to go. Almost everywhere downtown was booked and I didn't feel like the whole parking situation. Thai Kuu was amazing because not only was there a parking lot but the ambiance, bar scene, and food was great. The prices were very affordable. It is a BYOB but there is a Wine and Spirits right across the streets which gives you the opportunity to save money on drinks. It's small but very quant! A ten thumbs.

Beautiful presentaion of Food
Easter Sunday was very quiet at Thai Kuu. It was my first visit. The food was fresh, beautifully presented and very tasty. We will go again with friends.

I know I can always count
I know I can always count on a superbly delicious meal accompanied by a knowledgeable server, which is important when dining at an ethnic restaurant where you may not always be familiar with every dish. I have come to this restaurant many times and definitely recommend it to everyone I know.

A great spot for Thai food
This was my first visit. I can sum everything up in just one word, "outstanding".

Have been to Thai Kuu several
Have been to Thai Kuu several times and have always been pleased.
Food, as on the other occasions, was excellent and the service was great.
The room is a little tight with tables close together and noisey.

We really enjoyed all the dishes - Pad Thai (made very spicy per request), crab fried rice, a shrimp dish - and the portions are substantial. Deserts, too, were excellent. My only (small) complaint is that the service, while friendly, could be a little more professional. I recommend this restaurant.

Celebrated friends' wedding
Celebrated friends' wedding anniversary with dinner at Thai Kuu. They had never been and loved the combo appetizer plate, house salad with avocado, green curry, lollipop lamb chops, and desserts of coconut ice cream, ginger creme brulee, and apple tart. We had brought some roses for our friends, cut from our garden, and the waiter found a vase for them for the table while we ate, and then wrapped them up again so they could take with them when we left. All in all, the dinner made for a memorable anniversary party for our friends.

We took our friends there for a celebration and all had a delicious meals. Most of us had the stone meals and the quality of the meat and seafood was very good. It was a little difficult to hear our conversations but the food over shadowed that little flaw.

Great food and service
Our first time at Thai Kuu, it's BYOB, we forgot, but a wine and spirits shoppe is nearby. The Thai Iced Tea was a great substitute, though. Very tasty drinks! The food was great, my wife had the Shrimp Pad Thai and I had the duck soup special, both were generous servings and tasted great. We stated with the lettuce wraps, spicy and flavorful. And the Chocolate dessert was very good as well. Definitely recommend a reservation as the place fills up fast and Open Table made it easy to get one and hold our spot. Great neighbor gem tucked in at the top of the hill! The service was very good and the iPad photos for the specials is a great touch!

Stick with the traditional
Stick with the traditional Thai food. We made the mistake of ordering a (non-thai) special, which was fine, but the Thai food was wonderful with generous portions and great flavor. Outside seating is a plus in good weather.

Usually pretty good
Have eaten here 8 times. Twice it was less than great (bad soft shell crabs and overly greasy pad thai). The other times, it was really good. We've tried a lot o things on the menu, including the meat/fish on a hot stone thing. The stone is a bit too hot for delicate fish if you want the fish medium rare (like tuna). Other dishes have been delicious. Love the salads, spring rolls crispy and soft, and the way they show you the food and specials on the IPad is nice because it looks appealing. Service is usually decent--not top notch, but good enough most of the time. The outdoor dining option is nice when the weather permits. We've taken several friends here on different occasions and they've enjoyed it.

Addicted to the Lettuce Wraps!!
I could eat their Thai Chicken Lettuce Wraps everyday of my life! I love this place. Local, quaint BYOB with amazing food! The seafood pad pong karee dish should win awards. I recently had the scallop special. I've never had scallops cooked so perfectly, even at some of the finest, most expensive seafood restaurants in the city. It can get a little tight and noisy on the weekends, but mostly after the wine is flowing and everyone is in the spirit of the weekend. I've never had a bad experience here. Highly recommend!

Hidden Thai Gem
Loathe to share too much about this lovely, unexpectedly sophisticated top of the Hill spot but admit everyone I've brought there, from teens to octegenarians, has enjoyed our meals here. Lunches are as specially prepared and thoughtfully presented as dinners and feature creative and unusual choices along with the more familiar pad thai, curries and coconut soups, etc. Ingredients are notable for their freshness, never overcooked. The atmosphere is contemporary and tasteful. Service is outstanding for its genuine care and warm hospitality. This is true of owners and staff as well. Highly recommended for casual to fancier celebratory events. Outdoors seating in good weather. Remember this is a BYOB, but corkage is not greedily charged.

Great Thai Food
Everything was delicious. A definite must if you love Thai or want to give it a try. Wish we lived closer!

This was an incredible meal. I had previously eaten at this restaurant on a Saturday night. Due to the small size and excellent food, the noise level was so loud we could not hear one another. I had suggested this restaurant for lunch for a friend's birthday. There were so many delicious items to choose on the menu, it was a hard decision. Everyone was so pleased with the food, service and ambiance. I cannot wait to go back.

Really enjoyed good food & service. Requested table in back of restaurant and it was waiting for us on time.
Only drawback was noise level. I will return for the ambience and food.

This is a fantastic restaurant that hits it on every level. The food is fantastic - some of the best Thai I've had (and I've had Thai a lot!), great service, reasonable prices, pretty atmosphere. This is a place we come back to time and time again - just the two of us and with friends who then fall in love with it too!

fine meal with friends
Our first visit here: Went on Halloween, dinner for 5, friends from far.
Staff had cute costumery, Rob was very nice and others too.
Food met our needs perfectly. Every morsel was eaten up.
We'll go back, just as a couple, and enjoy it in the future.

High-End Thai Food
I've been to numerous Thai restaurants. I typically enjoy the food. But Thai Kuu takes everything to a new level. The Pad Thai is great. All the appetizers and main courses that we tried were excellent and the presentation is lovely. The space is a nice one - at the top of Chestnut Hill. This is our neighborhood. We tend to eat elsewhere when we're looking for a special meal, because it's fun to check out the many excellent restaurants in Philadelphia and its suburbs. But this restaurant draws us to Chestnut Hill for a special meal because it's so good. And it's BYO - a common, $$-saving feature in the Philadelphia area. That compensates for the somewhat higher cost for the Thai food here compared to smaller, less up-scale Thai venues.

We started with the special cauliflower saffron soup with seafood and it was delicious. although I expected a little more texture from the cauliflower, it was still a good creamy soup. The crispy duck purses were really good, the water chestnuts were the perfect crunch inside. We also had the seafood salad and the dressing was SO spicy. I love some heat in my food but this was almost unbearably spicy. We had the massamon curry with beef and the pad ping karee with seafood. The seafood was cooked perfectly and the curry was creamy and sweet from the coconut milk. The beef was tender as well, and the peanut curry was addicting! Good place overall, plus it's a byob so that's always a great thing!

A swanky gem in Chestnut Hill
I absolutely LOVE bringing my friends here for lunch and dinner! The food is always fresh, delicious and the service is good if it’s not too busy. I recently had a masquerade party of 80 to 100 people and (Thai Kuu catered some of my favorites dishes) – and, everyone noted the food as being outstanding. You can't go wrong choosing this hotspot.
