    I LOVE STREET TO KITCHEN! When I’m eating here I forget that utensils exist, and my phone does not get any attention whatsoever. That should tell you how good it is. The moment you think you won’t be back, the chef has something new on the menu to keep coming back!

    So glad this place just celebrated 2 years and I was able to be a part of it! Love the energy of this place and everyone that works here! The food is fantastic, maybe the most authentic in a city that touts quite a few authentic Thai places.

    Delicious food, exciting flavors, lots of menu and off-menu choices, appreciable wine and pairing recommendations, most creative menu (loved the “images”). Dumplings and Drunken noodles w/ shrimp were outstanding; We savored every bite of the basil beef and the scallion pancakes. Service was great except food was delivered to the table a little too fast. Overall, a very fun and positive experience; made a second reservation on the way home.

    Not worth the time or money. Flavors decent, slow service even for a not-so-busy night. Ridiculous 22% mandatory tip that was not deserved.

    First time at this restaurant. It's in an unlikely location on Harrisburg Rd at 65th St, sharing a building with a convenience store. Once you enter the restaurant, you're transported to the small dining room of a charming cosmopolitan restaurant. The wait staff are welcoming and helpful. But the star of this show is the food! Every item we ordered was fresh, flavorful, and creative. Each item was served hot and was absolutely delicious. The wine menu was surprisingly complete and unique. We had an amazing Spanish sparkling wine to compliment our dinner...which it did perfectly. The appetizers -- veggie spring rolls and garlic chive pancakes -- were stunning! We followed that with an order of Drunken Veggie Noodles and another of Veggie Muselman Curry. Each dish was totally unique and delicious. If you haven't been yet...what are you waiting for?

    Not what you would expect in a gas station in a dodgy area of town! But it was an amazing experience! Their authentic Thai food was awesome. The best basil chicken we've ever had! Very nice wine list too. Service was fantastic too! We went for a double birthday and got a really nice and fun surprise from the manager. Great evening out!

    Last night ate dinner there and what a cool place. You walk by the gas station and into a very warm and welcoming atmosphere. The menu is handwritten and very unique and fun. The food is amazing. Nothing I can write will prepare you for the incredible flavors that await. The chive pancake appetizers are so delicious, crispy and flavorful. The Cashew Chicken is to die for as well as the Pork Belly with sticky rice. I went back today for lunch. I ordered online and got Tom Yum soup with shrimp which was divine, so many flavors and perfect. I also tried the Drunken Noodles with chicken today and I will definitely be having that again. Tonight I’m going to try the Mango with sticky rice as that has eluded me since yesterday evening. I can’t wait. This place should stay busy, I am thrilled it’s so close to me and the prices are surprisingly low. Inflation issues may cause a rise in price but I don’t think that will be an issue. The food is well worth it. Thank you so much.

    I lived in Thailand for several years, love authentic Thai food, and am so happy that this place exists. The food is so on-point and comforting. Someone in a past review mentioned “unpretentiousness” - that’s an aspect of Thai hospitality which I love and miss so much, and which these folks have thankfully maintained (but some may not really appreciate). They ironically make a play on this in some of their online ads - it’s definitely not lost on me. :)

    We were a group of four that really enjoyed this restaurant. We ordered the spring rolls, pork belly, pad thai, Red Curry Chicken and Boat Noodles and shared them family style! We had been warned about the spice level, but none of us found it too spicy. But we do like spice. The service was attentive and friendly. The restaurant is right next to a gas station and is unimpressive from the outside. But it is quite nice inside. We loved the unpretentiousness coupled with the great food.

    Went last year and loved it. Went again and found nearly every item I asked about was no longer available and would be taken off the menu but they just hadn’t updated their menu yet. At least four different items. I do recall the food blowing me away last time but this time it was just ok. A bit disappointed as I hd high expectations and brought someone else after raving about it for a while. Mango sticky rice was still on point and the best thing I ate while there.

    A dear friend of mine recommended this spot to me recently, and after reading all the 5 star reviews I had to come try it out! I was interested to taste the work from new, up-and-comer, line cook, Chris Trdla, who I heard is making big waves at the start of his career in the kitchen.This surprisingly young cook is extremely talented with a Wok... looking forward to following his career and bright future! We ordered the pork-stick appetizer (which was out of this world), sweet with a hint of spice, jerky style. For the main course I had the shrimp fried rice, medium heat. Be warned.... "medium" heat for Thai is like extra spicy for American, but man did it hit the spot! I absolutely loved the flavor and heat level was on pointa Loved our food and the experience so much that we sent our compliments to the chef! To our surprise, a young kid came out from the kitchen to thank us for our patronage and support..... It was cook Chris Trdla in the flesh! Not gonna lie, I was jaw-dropped at his young age, but there's no question that he is beyond his years 10-fold in skill, ability, and talent! If you enjoy authentic Thai, I highly recommend this semi- new spot (2 years and counting), I will definitely be visiting again in the near future.... drunken noodles are already calling my name! A huge huge thank you to Chef, the cooks, and friendly staff for a wonderful night out! 5 stars all the way!

    I try to take everyone I know to Street to Kitchen. I lived in Thailand for a couple of years and this is the closest I've been able to come to that authentic thai flavor. The owner is awesome and takes time to talk to us each time we go (and does a great job recommending things for those that are a little on the pickier side). Love this place - definitely check it out!

    This place is amazing and very unique for the Houston food scene....VERY low-key, it's not "fancy" so there's nothing to steal your attention away from their spectacular food and easy going vibes. Graham at the front of the house holds down the patron end while Benchawan Jabthong Painter is shelling out nostalgic dishes that are always on point and never disappoint. She's not afraid of the heat and if you aren't either then specify the "hot" option rather than the mild or medium and be ready to hold firm when Graham tries to talk you down on that :) This restaurant is one of the best values in Houston, keep them busy please!
