Second time visit to this restaurant and it did not disappoint. The appetizer of Shu-Mai, steamed dumplings stuffed with chicken and shrimp was delicious, but could have been a little hotter. The sharable side of edamame was served hot and cooked to perfection.

The entree of Mee Grob Laht Na, crispy egg noodles, chicken, shrimp, veggies and Mama's sauce was outstanding. The noodles on the bottom of the dish were hot and cooked, however, the noodles on top of the dish were crunchy, almost like fried. The balance was excellent. The only negative to this dish was the lack of more chicken and shrimp. The meats were very skimpy.

The service was very good and the server was very attentive without being intrusive. Will definitely return to try other Thai dishes.

I had dinner with my daughter, she ordered the duck and it was absolutely wonderful, I ordered the crab three ways, which was just okay, the soft shell was great, the crab cake was not seasoned at all. The lump crabmeat on top was lukewarm. I would have ordered something else. Overall it was a great dining experience. We will definitely return even though I was disappointed in my meal, I am definitely returning for something else. Thank you, CLB

We got together for a ladies night and couldn't have been more pleased. Everything was wonderful from our waiter to the fabulous food. Jay, the owner, came over and visited with us and I so personable and friendly you feel like you're eating in his Own home.
We would definitely recommend any of the fish dishes, the crab cake, and the steak was fabulous. We even splurged on dessert which finished our perfect meal.

Perfect for a Friday night to accompany conversation without the large crowds and noise. Music was at a comfortable volume level to have good conversation. Food and service was A+ (this was my 2nd time here). Ordered off off the Nit Noi menu and had traditional thai curry dishes and fish of the day/season (red fish). Recommend!

We went to La Thai with friends so that my husband could try it. The Calamari and Crab 3 Ways was unbelievable! Both the calamari and the soft shell crab were so juicy, fat & fresh. There was a light batter so I could really taste the crab. The crab cake was a little burnt on one side, but I ate around it. Next time I will ask them to cook it less. The calamari was so tender. The best I had ever eaten. My husband was quite impressed with the experience. We will go back again.

As usual, the food was outstanding and the service was excellent; easily the best Thai food in the New Orleans area. This was our second trip there and find the chef extremely innovative. We also experienced and enjoyed the La Thai when it was on Metairie Road. We would come more often if it was closer to our Metairie home.
