This is one of my favorite restaurants! Definitely the best Thai around. Food is amazing. And, Staff is very accommodating. I especially like the pumpkin red curry but I’ve never had anything I didn’t like there. When we get past COVID-19, you will love the interior.

The food was amazing. We really loved everything that we ordered. The server was given too many tables to manage, and that made service slow. It also made the experience a little lacking. We did not want to continue to order because the server was so busy

Whenever I have a craving for thai food, my first thought is SEA Thai. The food is consistently delicious, made with fresh ingredients. In fact, I love their food so much I always order a take out of their pumpkin curry and brown rice so I can have several meals, after I've had either lunch or dinner.

The food is always tasty. In my opinion it’s a bit overpriced for Asian food. Due to COVID-19 we are sitting outside and the area that we were sitting in there were lots of flies in and around the tables. Maybe the restaurant should consider putting out some fly traps or fans to keep the flies away.

Excellent as usual. It's been awhile since I've been able to visit SEA Thai Bistro due to the pandemic, but they made it comfortable, we were safely distanced from other diners and the staff visited minimally and always wearing a mask.
Aside from that, the food was EXCELLENT! Love those Thai Bruschettas - yum! Tried something new this time, the Massaman Curry, recommended by our server. It was excellent and plentiful.
Always enjoy the food here.

The hostess, Cassandra, must have been having a bad day. She was unhappy when we approached her and disgusted with us for not having reservations. She told us it would be a 20 to 30 minute wait. We said no problem. We waited an hour and then she told us to go around the corner, did not lead us to the table. We bowed ourselves to the corner to discover that the only table was in the direct sun. By this time I made a reservation through open table and that is the only way we were given a seat!
Travis, the waiter, did his best but forgot my drink order but did give me a small salad to apologize.
The buser who delivered my curry, accidentally stuck his thumb in my dish when serving it, so I requested that I get a new one. Hopefully, it was a new one! But the food itself is delicious.

We have been here a few times over the last year and that initial visit has not been duplicated. Overall the food is good and the service and atmosphere is good. Food preferences vary so you just have to try and see what you think. For us it is just good. Nothing stands out and so I think this will be our last visit. BUT definitely worth a visit because again preferences vary.
