Prices have gone up a bit so that it’s no longer possible to dine here a couple or few times a week. Some unnecessary drag gong of tables and chairs made dinner disruptive. Too bad—as a favorite neighborhood eatery, Thai72 had so much to recommend it.

Such a great spot! I’m not kidding when I say THE BEST crab Rangoon I’ve ever had. Food was great, service was fast and kind, the vibes were just truly all there.

My husband (the first review he’s my husband!!) and I went to Thai72 before the opera and it was a perfect choice, if I do say so myself. The serving sizes are perfect, not huge so you overstuff yourself, but the perfect size to allow you to swing around the corner and get Van Leeuwen’s… the red curry was deliciously spicy, not too hot and I may have for hotter next time, and Steven’s noodles were ‘yum!’ The staff were all friendly and efficient, moving between different members for different tasks, and they were not overbearing or neglectful.

It was great!

Had to come back because it was so great the first time. The food was amazing, the Margarita gave me a good buzz and overall, I can’t wait to return again. This time, This place was packed though that it made for some not so fast service and attentiveness. I don’t blame them nor am I completely bothered by it as they were well packed compared to my first attendance. This is definitely my new go to spot and I look forward to returning soon!

I have gone here over 10 times. Friend & I put order in and waited OVER AN HOUR for our food. It was insane. The table next to us, came in, order, ate and left and we still had nothing.
The appetizer came AFTER our dinner. I was furious - I called waitress over who was clueless.

A major disappointment.

Food was good, and fresh. The service was adequate, got the job done, nothing special. The ambiance indoor is adorable with brick walls and waterwheel, outdoor space nothing special, simply adequate.

The food is good, but not outstanding. Service is good, but not great.
I was disappointed that they did not ask for proof of vaccination. Thus, i will not be back until they start doing so.

After just finishing a Dance session across the street, I went to Thai72 to grab a bite to eat. Best Choice Ever!

The atmosphere was calm and welcoming from the moment you walked in. The Vax verification was smooth and we were seated immediately. We waited about 5 - 7 mins and was greeted and our order taken. About 7 mins later, our appetizers arrived hot and ready (Crispy Spring Rolls 😘) and less than 10 mins after our food and drinks arrived.

The food tasted amazing with just the right amount of Spice for me (which is spicy) and I was overly pleased. The staff was very comforting, welcoming and attentive.

What was supposed to be just a quick drop in to eat has possibly become my new favorite Thai restaurant and I can’t wait to return for another helping of the great food and service!

The service was very offhand—they seemed understaffed. As usual, apps were great but my main course was tepid, and the broccoli was clearly on its last legs. Also, the lunch special included salad or soup, neither of which I was offered! Disappointing compared to other meals at Thai 72.

Excellent food - the portions were BIG and the flavors spot on. We had the pork chops, crispy duck and curry shrimp - they were all expertly prepared. The service was great too (and totally unobtrusive). Highly recommended.

I’d researched Thai restaurants & chose Thai72 because of its reviews & they ACTUALLY USE CRAB in their Crab Rangoon. I had high hopes. We were not disappointed. The service was good, restaurant clean, noise level allowed the 4 of us in my party to easily converse & the food was OUTSTANDING! We WILL be back! The Crab Rangoon only disappointed in its smaller than usual size but it packed flavor & CRAB & was delicious. We also had summer rolls & curry puffs for appetizers. Everyone loved all 3 of the appetizers! I asked for a not on the menu, traditional green salad with ginger dressing — it was huge & as fresh as I could hope for, as were ALL the salads. Excellent freshly prepared, tasty food! One tip might be to alert patrons of “hot factor” on some dishes as a couple people had meals much spicer than expected & we’re all regular Thai food eaters. 5 ⭐️ from us!

We were looking for a fresh & light Asian fare and Thai 72 was the perfect fit. We sat outside in a very nice semi airy space. The waitress was very attentive & upbeat. The menu offered a great variety and we had the summer spring rolls- so light & tasty. Then we had a mango avocado salad split between me & my husband as it was a big portion. We finished with tofu delight & green spring vegetables. The sauces were so delicious. We each had a glass of wine & an iced tea. Our bill was so reasonable - we can’t wait to come back here. This is a hidden gem you won’t want to miss 👍

We really liked the ambience and my date loved the duck! We definitely will be coming back.

I appreciate the restaurant’s hospitality and patience while my guest arrived 15 min before the kitchen closed.

Still they did not cease to amaze me. The food was amazing!
