Fanatic food. Great service!
Delish food and fantastic service. Can’t wait to eat there again.
Good, tasty Thai food. Attentive and excellent service. Location in Columbia's Vista very nice. Open-air seating. I would recommend upgrading the selection of white wines. Very Reasonable prices. We will definitely return.
This was my first time going and I had an amazing experience. We sat outside at a table for 4 and we were plenty spread out from everyone else. Everyone was so nice and helpful and the food was delicious.
Great place, lots of choices, service was awesome. Will go back again soon.
The food was absolutely terrible and had zero flavor to it. I have had a lot of terrible Thai food since arriving in the Midlands, but this takes the cake for the worst. I wish I would have never visited this place. I would not recommend this establishment to anyone else.
We enjoyed our anniversary dinner here very much. Our server was knowledgeable about the food and drink menu. Order was served promptly and was delicious.
It was delicious and the service was excellent! Will def be back and recommend to friends.
Loved the service and food. The Duck Roti Roll appetizer & Tom Kha Soup were delicious. Our server was knowledgeable, friendly and fun. Will come back again!
The staff are always so nice and friendly. The place is spotless and you can see them constantly cleaning. I’ve tried multiple things on the menu and everything’s been amazing.
The service was amazing. The waiter was very outstanding & nice & understanding. The scenery was very beautiful. No noise , food came out face, the food portion was very nice for the charge amount. Overall place I give them a 10. The place & staff was so amazing.
Sat outdoors to maintain social distancing but were bitten by mosquitoes! The management should look into that!
Took my wife on date night. Started out w the sangria, shrimp pot stickers, sausage, mango salad, and dinner was the beef noodles. Wonderful food service and drinks. One of our favorite places downtown.
Great atmosphere, extremely friendly staff, excellent food.
Probably one of the best Thai meals we’ve had except for the beef in the green curry (was a bit too chewy and tasteless) but the sauce was superb. Attentive service. Limited wine selection.
The food was so fresh tasting and delicious. Our sever was very attentive and extremely pleasant. One of our new favorite places.
Excellent Thai food in a fun atmosphere. Would highly recommend to anyone seeking options in Columbia and surrounding areas.
Kao was very accommodating and attentive. Will return!
Papaya salad tasted not fresh and had no flavor. Pad Thai was just okay and I have eaten a lot of Pad Thai. Overpriced for the quality of food. For someone who’s favorite food is Thai food I would not recommend this restaurant for good Thai food.
Date night at our favorite restaurant
Arrived early for a reservation and were seated immediately. Took 15 minutes for a server to address the table, 15 more minutes to place an order, 30 minutes to get apps, another 10-15 to get meal. We had to eat main course in a hurry as we had an event to attend. What should have been a relaxing meal did not turn out that way. No offer to adjust bill for lack of service. Food was really good and the people were nice. Dining room was not that busy. It was fist time there so I don't know if they had a bad night or are just really slow. I can't recommend based on the service.
Food is great but the glassware was not washed properly. ALL the glasses on our table had lipstick imprints on the brim.
I have never been disappointed with the experience dining here.
Upscale Asian fusion with an emphasis on Thai cuisine.
The food was excellent and came out in a timely manner. The only downside was it is tight quarters.
Best Thai in Colombia. Great wings and dumplings. Curry w/ crusty Hawaiian bread is to die for!
Excellent Valentine’s Day dinner with my girl at Kao! Food was excellent, Isiah our server was right on time, and the drinks and pace were perfect. A wonderful evening on a special day!
Food not very good, waitress inattentive
Outstanding food well presented. Service was on ooiny
Service is usually better, but the food is always good.
There were 8 of us and they got us in and out in time for us to make our show. Several of us ordered different appetizers that we shared and we enjoyed all of them. We also enjoyed our meals and were able to take some of it to enjoy the next day. Our waitress was very knowledgeable about the dishes and drinks and was very pleasant. I think we would all go back again; I know I would.
loved the food, as usual but the service was extremely slow, Without any apology from staff.
Great food and outstanding service.
Kao Thai is excellent. We will return.
Excellent service. Our waiter explained the menu and helped us with our selections. The good was great.
This is the second time that we've been to Kao Thai and we haven't been disappointed yet. The waiter was friendly and was always very present to make sure that we had everything we needed. The food is delicious. I'm planning to order the crab fried rice next time to see how good it is.
Columbia restaurant week
The service was SUPER slow and the food was average. The waitstaff was extremely pleasant
We enjoyed the atmosphere and service immensely- most of the food we had was perfect, there was just one dish that didn’t have the same depth of flavor as the others- but will definitely give it another try as 99% of what we had was fantastic!
We loved our experience at Kao Thai. The food was exceptional and the flavors something to be happy about. The service was great. We will definitely be going back.
Appetizers were very creative and nicely seasoned. Seafood salad was a very pleasant surprise and coconut soup was very good. Entrees of Pad Thai and chicken kom gai (between spell check and faulty memory, I can't get the names right) were both complex, pleasing flavors with nice balance of spice and heat. Deserts were good but the appetizers and entrees were what I would make a point to come back for. Convenient free parking along side and behind the restaurant.
