The food at Songkran was pretty good. We did ask for some additional spicy sauce to add to our pad thai and shrimp special entrees. The dessert was some kind of chocolate pyramid with macerated berries. It was Houston Restaurant week, so we were glad to support a good cause. The dumplings were pretty good, overall everything would just benefit from a little more flavor/spice for us. Nothing tasted bad, and we will probably try them again to order off of the regular menu. Service was good, our glasses were always filled.

The food was all fantastic as usual, especially the crispy duck salad, the short ribs and the whole crispy fish.

The noise level was especially high and it was hard for me and my guest to converse without difficulty.

Restaurant Week Menu
Shrimp shumai Tom yum soup:
Watered down and lacking greatly in flavor. Under seasoned. Needs a little bit more fish sauce to balance it out, perhaps tomatoes but I can appreciate their interpretation of Tom yum.

Noodles weren’t all that either but the beef was fantastic; about 8oz of braised perfection.

The dessert was delicious.

This restaurant is very small and we felt rushed to order (our drinks hadn't even arrived yet), so don't go there expecting to have a long dinner. There was a long wait at the door which is understandable because the food was excellent.

As always, Songkran never disappoints. Everything was first rate and the Crispy Duck Salad was over the top as it always is. Our waitress was most attentive, friendly and efficient and the ambiance of the place was most pleasant.

An unexpected surprise tucked away in Uptown. Delicious and priced right. Lunch menu has a dozen items served with soup and salad. I got the tasty green curry chicken and my wife got the Drunken Noodles. Friendly service from all the staff. And I’m glad we got a reservation because it was packed by noon.

Terrific menu. The variety of dishes is really among the top Thai menus I have seen. The cuisine is upscale. Reservations made entire experience smooth. The restaurant is well-situated, but is a small venue. We will be returning.

The pad Thai was indescribably delicious. This dish had every hint of flavor and more. From sweet to spicy and a bit of tang.
It accentuated on my taste buds with excitement. The ambiance was modern /eccentric. This will be my new date night spot for a tasty meal

Second visit and it was as good as we remember. Had the curry chicken and it was prepared just as I requested without any eggplant. Husband had the cashew chicken and really enjoyed it. We were there at lunch and the portions were plentiful. Food came out quite quickly as well. Will return with pleasure.

Food was good. That is where the positive experience ends. The service ruined the evening. Restaurant became busy after we arrived. There were only two servers. This resulted in terrible service. Waited 16 minutes for refill of water and to ask to order another glass of wine.

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!

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.
