This is a neighborhood gem...not strictly Thai, except for great customary dishes...more "world" oriented with Roti and other items on the menu...we will definitely go back, probably often...Dale

This is a neighborhood gem. We love it and have recommended to friends and brought visitors. Everyone likes the food and Moulay is a gracious host always. I love the noodle dishes, my husband has tried lots of dishes and never had a bad one. The food is creative and fresh and you can pick your spice level on all items.

Fantastic Thai dinner! The spicy cashew stir fry had an excellent blend of spices. The eden veg stir fry also had a nice blend of spice and vegetables. The lettuce wraps with tofu were tasty too.

Really good food with a terrific Phad Thai with chicken and their signature appetizer of Hot Edamame.

But the service was too familiar and thus a bit casual and almost lazy.

Worth a trip for the food.

Moulay makes the most outstanding Thai food. All the ingredients are super fresh. He keeps the heat level of spices exactly as you ask for. I highly recommend Takeda Thai and it's wonderful food and owner.

Unlikely location in a strip mall may put you off but the food and the service and the reasonable prices all make it worth the trip. The curries we tried were exceptional and generous in portion side. The lettuce wraps and pot sticker starters were delicious and again, generous. The sweet and sour tailspin was s bit sweet for my taste but the fish itself was delicious and perfectly cooked. Veg was fresh and spicing levels are tailored to your taste by the owner/chef. Finally, an excellent Hot and Spicy martini rounded off the meal.

It has been eleven years since Takeda Thai by Moulay opened in the Scottsdale Shea SE corner- directly across from Enterprise Rentals. They continue to offer spiciness to suit everyone's taste, but if you casually ask for #4, the hottest, you may be surprised because this numbering is according to Thai, not American, tastes. The menu is varied, but the menu makes it easy to locate dishes according to type. It is usually quiet enough for conversations including some with Moulay himself. We were there to celebrate a birthday and it was a perfect place! It is a pleasant, usually calm place where you feel welcome and where there will be something for everyone in your party on the menu. The food is the star of course!

I have been a patron of this restaurant for nearly 10 years, and I always receive consistent high quality dishes. I have introduced the restaurant to many friends and they marvel at what a great gem I have found. Moulay runs a great restaurant and we are lucky to have him here in our Scottsdale culinary arena.

Chicken in Pad Thai was over cooked and overall dish was dry. Spicy cashew chicken dish was very salty. Service was slow when we first arrived but food came quickly once we ordered.

This was our third visit and the food has always been superb and the "heat" as requested!! Love the spicy edamame - just right flavor.
Chicken that I am I ordered a level 1 on the heat "meter" and daughter ordered a 3 and we were both very happy!!!

Pad Thai is my usual choice with tofu and this was delicious. The tofu was just the right amount of crispy on the outside and the pad Thai was not too sweet. Would recommend

Food, especially the Tom Kai Gai, was quite good, as were house-made dumplings. Service was excellent, and having the chef/owner stop by to make sure all was good was very personable.

Authentic Thai food was fantastic! Our waiter John was very knowledgeable and helpful about the menu and directed us, in a positive way, about the level of spice for our main entree’s. From our appetizers to our main courses it was really really good!
