    Three of us came for business lunch on a Thursday at noon. The service was attentive and our appetizers came out quickly. Unfortunately, we waited on our main entrees for a long time and did not see or hear from her server until a minute before it arrived. Perhaps the kitchen was short-staffed, but it would have been better if the server had checked in to inform us of the delay. We had to pack up half our lunches since we were late in returning to work.

    The food is always good, and good-looking. Outdoor seating is OK, if unremarkable. Staff ability, enthusiasm, and pleasantness levels vary greatly.

    This is a great find in a mall type setting. The spices in each dish were amazing. Lots of choices. Very fresh ingredients. Service was excellent. Suggest getting reservations if going for dinner as it gets very busy.

    We were there with friends who knew nothing about Thai food, and our server was very helpful in selecting what to eat. The food was excellent as was the service. They also have delicious Chinese food, although we didn’t have any for this dinner. We highly recommended Ses Thai Bistro.

    The Thai Bruschetta is usually delicious when it’s on the French bread toasted - yesterday it had different bread & was not crunchy - a bit disappointed. The chicken peanut noodle dish was delicious.

    Delicious food. Served hot and with just the right amount of time between ordering and eating. Basil chicken was great, but portion a bit small for the price. The chicken salad was yummy and spicy and a good size. Would definitely go back.

    The entire operation runs smoothly. The food is very good and heat level can be requested. This is the type of restaurant where you want to return to try different items from the diverse (but not overwhelming) menu. Since I am a fairly regular customer, and have my favorites, it would be welcome to see a couple of new items placed on the menu (and not just as daily or weekly specials).

    Convenient reservations available. Promptly seated upon arrival. Not so enamored with table location, we were located in a high traffic zone…a lot of butts squeezing by:( Delightful order taker, indifferent wait staff. Food/wine very nice.

    The food is amazing and they have very good service. My only complaint is the level of flies that keep trying to go into the food. Because they leave their doors open to the outside patio, the inside is loaded with flies that make the dining experience stressful. Having to constantly swat away flies off the food is not particularly a pleasurable dining experience.

    The service was very slow. Requests needed to be repeated. The rib eye dish was too tough to be chewed. The squash dish was almost cold and had no taste other than flat. The other dishes were ok

    My friend had never eaten at SEA Thai Bistro and decided for out monthly lunches we'd eat there. The food was fantastic! We ordered appetizers to share including the large sample platter which was perfect including desert of mango sorbet which was fabulous. We well be eating there again. Service was perfect our waiter was very attentive and not over shadowing at all. Nice place to enjoy a great meal.

    Food is always fantastic! Ambience wonderful. Service is usually good but it was awful. Barely saw the waitress, didn’t offer another drink, didn’t refill waters, had to ask multiple ones for to-go containers, her language was too casual for a server… thanked her and her response was “yeah” just not good.

    If I could give this restaurant 3.5 stars overall, I would. The $16 apple salad was mostly lettuce. The service is lacking - never came by to refill drinks or ask if everything was ok. The restaurant is popular and crowded but not sure it's the best option.
