Songkran Thai Kitchen - Galleria
Songkran is a celebration of food, drink and camaraderie in an upscale atmosphere!
A diamond in the rough
Great Thai cuisine. I love the curry dishes, red fish and the vegetable soup.
Healthy portions and the spices are as spicy as you select.
Price/Quality is very good. The service is excellent. The food was diverse, overall good but some plates were too spicy.
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!
Delicious Thai food and excellent service. Our server made suggestions with which we were very pleased.
Always enjoy Songkran Thai. The soup with chicken and coconut milk is phenomenal.
Amazing food and service
Always great food and friendly staff. We were seated immediately and the waitress was very helpful making recommendations and frequently checked up on us. Highly recommend!
Everything was great!!! will be back whenever I am in the area.
We love the food!
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.
First time there and it was great! Will be back.
Loved the vibe, food and ambience. Staff was slightly too quick to pick up dishes - felt a little rushed and restaurant was not full. Otherwise great experience.
Delicious food and great service! Will definitely go back!
Not a good restaurant for Vegetarians. Not much of a Vege friendly menu. Expected a very authentic thai food and taste, but was a little disappointed.
Awesome for lunch or diner. Great food. Great atmosphere.
My first experience with Thai food was terrific. Food, service and overall environment were excellent. I will definitely be back.
Our go to in the neighborhood for great food. Always attentive and polite service. Wish the portions were larger.
The dessert was not good
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.
Very high reputation going in for the first time. Bean curd was delicious, but the other dishes were not as good as (and lower value than) nearby Thai Gourmet
Excellent food and great ambiance - really enjoyed it!
It's got a creative menu for Thai food and is a step above the usual NitNoi knock-off drill. All of the food was really good. We especially enjoyed the short rib, and the lettuce wraps were way above par.
That said, I'd be a little surprised if it's around in a few years, especially at this high dollar location. The service was mediocre at best, primarily due to a language gap, but they can fix that.
I just don't see it getting the buzz it'll need to keep paying that rent, and that rent is only going to go higher as they finish pimping out Uptown Park. The faux-Thai decor feels a tad hackneyed, and the crowd was surprisingly dead for a Thursday night. Even post NitNoi, I can still get really good Thai food for a lot less money, and in general I think the Thai food craze is pretty much over.
It's unique and way above average, but probably not good enough to compete at this level in this part of town. Maybe they'd be better off at a slightly lower price point in a different location. This market is just too competitive. Maybe they should try The Woodlands. There's not much good Thai up there, if any. They'd kill it up there. Kill it.
We paid $20 for a glass of wine, stopped at HEB on the way home and bought a bottle of the same wine for $28. I honestly don't know whether that degree of markup is egregious or somewhat common, but I do know that it's a tad irksome.
We have been here 5 times and it is always fantastic
Excellent food, decor and service. We dine here on a regular basis.
We both enjoyed the special menu they had for Houston Restaurant Month. We also sat at the bar and enjoyed our conversation with the friendly bartender. Food is excellent.....rare to find Thai food of that quality and the ambience was cozy and a little bit elegant.
Love this restaurant! Go frequently with friends. It is a wonerful upscale great Thai food restaurant
Great food and ambiance. Will be back again soon!
Food was just your typical Thai. Nothing wrong with it but would not go out of my way to eat here. Service was good.
We have a new restaurant to frequent!
Looking forward to many great dining experiences !
Having lived in Houston for 50+ years I have tried numerous Thai restaurants. I gauge the quality of Thai restaurants by how good their Pad Thai. Songkran has the best Pad Thai I have ever eaten in Houston. The flavor and spiciness was spot on and I can't to go back and try some of their other dishes.
Too much sugar in the dishes. Good flavors otherwise. Skip the duck.
There are plenty of Thai restaurants in Houston, but Songkran rises above all of them! The food was exceedingly fresh and the service was great. We went for happy hour and there are only three cocktails on the happy hour list, which was disappointing (please add a whiskey drink!), but the food more than makes up for it. I had the Panang Curry Shrimp that was the perfect blend of flavors and my friend had the Bean Curd dish (I can't remember the name). We both loved our meals. Hopefully Uptown Park will finish construction and get more retail back in there -- it seems desolate there right now and I hope Songkran makes it through.
My wive and I shared the soft shell crab as an appetizer. It was great. She had the shrimp dish with a great sauce. Didn't realize there are 4 levels of heat for sauces. I had the whole snapper. It was done very well. Gave us extra rice for the sauces. Finished with a scoop of ice cream (wive) and rasberry sorbet (me).
Will be back.
Great Customer service and Ambiance- Great presentation and food tasted very fresh.
However the dishes were over priced, Over all the experience was great.
Inside tables are close together and space is tight. But service and quality of food make up for that! Best thai food from appetizer, to entree and dessert, is the best I have had in Houston!
Always enjoyable. Right from the litchi martini to the entrees. Mussels were yum. Great service.
Excellent, excellent, excellent! Friendly staff and great food. We enjoyed everything from the soup to the appetizer to the entree. A must try indeed!
The Calamari was very good, the chicken lettuce wraps were not as good as expected. My friend ordered the lobster shrimp dish that was great but very spicy.
Overall, nice ambience snd great service
