Songkran was ok.
Food was good, but not that special. Had two types of curry, the Larb Gai and some fried rice.
Had a table Sunday, Mother’s Day, for 7pm. Got a call at 5:30 telling me to come earlier if possible, as last seating is 7pm and they already close at 8pm.
Arrived 6:30pm and our waitress told us to rather order quickly, as they have lots of guests and already closing at 8pm.
Food came very fast and was just dropped on table by an unfriendly server, so that sauce splashed to rim of plate.
Felt really rushed and that kind of ruined my whole Mother’s Day dinner with my boys.

Our food was fresh and delicious, and our server was extremely patient and helpful with two family members that are doing the Whole 30 diet. Our meal came at the very end of a long and busy Mother's Day for Songkran's kitchen and staff. Well done!

Pretty good for Houston. Average food compared to Los Angeles or other cities with amazing Asian food. Casual environment is friendly and good for easy dinner out with kids or friends.

As always, Songkran did not disappoint this time around. I brought some relatives from New Orleans (who definitely know great food) and they loved everything about Songkran. We sat outside in the patio area and the noise level was subdued even on a Friday evening. I highly recommend Songkran to anyone who enjoys great Thai food.

We are Thai foodies. The Pad Thai did not live up to our expectations; in fact, mine was awful. The orange color gives away the fact that it is NOT made fresh (per their claims that everything is made fresh). We ate in the courtyard, thinking that it would be quiet, but very loud music was blasting from the little shopping mall, and there was a horrible echo, so words not discernible. Plus, we were looking for a QUIET location, and this definitely did not fill the bill. The entire experience was less than satisfactory. The only bright spot was our waitress. Otherwise, it's a no-go.

Great food, cool vibe. Lounge tunes and modern decor set the scene for a great date night or just yummy Thai food with friends/family. Creative cocktails with Asian twists complement a wide array of starters to share. Authentic mains are enticing and also difficult to choose just one! Food is served steaming hot and is beautifully presented. Bangkok fish is a hit out of the park! Spicy and delicious. My niece enjoyed her Pad Thai, too. We have added Songkran to our short list of regular spots.

Love this place for Thai Food. Love the artful atmosphere. The food is always fresh and as much spice as you like. With spice comes the need for lots of water and our glasses were always topped off.
Love the Tom Kha Gai soup as well as the Crispy Duck soup.

While the ambiance and the service were really good, It was very difficult to have a conversation. The noise level was pretty loud and everyone at the table had to speak above a normal level in order to hear each other or had to move close together in order to speak. As for the food, it was pretty good. Out of 3 dishes, a veggie pad thai, tofu Kang Kari, and a Kang Phet Ped Yang all served medium spicy, we only enjoyed two. The Pad Thai was not very flavorful and was pretty mild. The other two though had a really nice spice level that was not overbearing but made the dishes really stand out. We will definitely be back for the Tofu Kang Kari, but the Pad Thai left us desiring more. The dessert we got was the lychee and jackfruit creme brulee and this is something we found different and really enjoyable. We just wish there more on the plate!

My wife and I both had a soup as appetizer, Tom Kha Gai and the Tom Yum Goong. Tom Yum is pretty much the best soup on earth so I already had expectations going in. They did not disappoint! We had never tried Tom Kha Gai before and it was amazing. Hard to describe the flavor- delicate yet very flavorful. After the soups, my wife had the Pad Thai which she loved. I had the Poh Taek which was also new to me and I thought it was great. The fish and prawns were perfect. I had a few Chang beers and the wife had a drink called Red Lotus that she loved. I can’t recommend this place enough. We will be back soon.

We had dined at the Sugarland location many times and I preferred their space and menu better. I was disappointed they were out of two white wines I tried to order and no vegetarian menu(I saw one online)but they can accommodate veges by taking animal protein out of some dishes.
Accommodating service and nice decor.
