Don't order your food spicy or it will come nuclear hot. Not the greatest Thai in Plano but not the worst.

The billboard for this restaurant is what attracted me to it, so perhaps I was expecting something based upon the photo. The pad thai was good but the pad see ew was so salty that we couldn't stop drinking water during and after. The restaurant is convenient to the movies & that would be a reason to go there. But it really was ultra casual. There were dirty dishes all over the place, which was a turn off. We tried to sit outside but there were too many flies so definitely sit inside until they get a fly zapper or something to correct that. I would go back for the pad thai if I'm in the mood for Thai right before a movie but I woudn't really go there otherwise.

We arrived at 7:25 for our 7:30 reservation but they had not reserved a table for us. When we complained, the hostess just shrugged and told us there were "walk ins". She asked if we wanted to sit outside.....it was 100 degrees.....no one was outside.

Went on a Monday night, and it just happened to be Pad Thai special night. Gluten Free Chicken Pad Thai that was AMAZING! and loved the Chularita with Prickly Pear swirled in as well.

We have been looking for a good Thai restaurant that had fresh ingredients and authentic Thai flavors and we have found Pakpao meets all of our expectations. We will definitely be going back for lunch, brunch and dinner again. Outstanding food and service!

This was my first time at this particular location. The ambience was beautiful on the inside and outside, but the restaurant was hard to locate. The sign on the actual building is tiny. The service was good, but the food was just okay.

I had the pineapple fried rice and I didn't like it as much as I did the one I had at the Design District location.

We are eating dinner at this restaurant very often and most of the time enjoying....

Tonight dinner was awful....disaster....experience!!!!
Noisy...
We was waiting for the food almost 30 min...
The soup wasn't hot and served in a broken cup...
The rice noodles in the pad Thai dish wasn't well cooked...
And not hot...
Seems the restaurant team lost the control....
We really didn't enjoyed our dinner and sure it wasn't deserved the money we paid for our dinner...
We definitely will not recommend this restaurant to anyone and definitely not come back to this restaurant!!!!

Michael our server was attentive and efficient.

The food was delicious! My husband and I are big fans of Jet Tila, so we had to try this restaurant, and it delivered!! Big on taste, fresh ingredients and interesting combinations. The food was definitely approachable, with an upscale twist -- like a lot of dishes have cashews, no peanuts. And the dishes come in a range of levels of spice. Our server was exceptionally helpful in directing us to dishes that were delicious and fun. And the cocktails were definitely worth trying. We will be back!

Restaurant had both doors open so there were several Gnats and bugs flying all around our table. The manager continually hollered into the kitchen demanding dishes in an overbearing loud tone. This made our dinner unpleasant.

Hoping this place does well but location slightly hidden. Great ambiance. Service was very good. Menu tighter than most thai restaurants with some standards missing. Spicy dish not spicy at all and a bit too much salt in what I tried (dumplings and pad grapow pork).

Food is good. We were disappointed in the lack of value of the scallops - high price for 3 scallops; more of the size of an appetizer. Staff is friendly, helpful & willing to make adjustments for food allergies.

The food is always good and I love trying new things on their menu. The night we went, there weren't many customers in the dining room, yet we had to wait for our server to come take our order because she was talking to another server. One of the chefs noticed I was looking over at them and I know he said something to her as she immediately came over to our table to take our order. My husband ordered some appetizers for his dinner and asked if it would come out with my entrée, but they came out first. We been several times before and have asked for John who is great and very attentive, unfortunately he was not working that evening.

Poor table service and the restaurant was empty. We had to ask multiple times for drinks and to order addl food. Also ran my credit card 3 times (and voided it) without letting me know there was an issue. Would not recommend until the restaurant gets a better staff--food was delicious though.

We've been to Pakpao before and we've found it to be hit or miss. The fried chicken curry was WAY over breaded. Pad Thai is always delicious. Crispy Duck was very good. We were very cold at our table. Service 2 of the three times we've been there the service was bad. I think they could be awesome, if they just got some consistency and attention to detail.

Extremely slow service!! Food was pretty good, but the noise level was horrific...not even possible to have a conversation. Wait staff appeared very confused about who was supposed to do what.
I had to numerous times for someone to take our order, then to remove the dirty dishes, waited 15 minutes two times for a glass of wine and it was finally delivered after the 4th request but I ordered white wine and red wine was brought!
The whole experience was unpleasant!
