best thai in phoenix – This is the best Thai in Phoenix. Try the soup for sure! The service is outstanding. And, the price is very affordable. I love this place.
Best Soup – My girlfriend and I go there often. Great food and friendly. They always know just what we want..The best soup!
Been in business for over 25 years! – Best Thai food in the valley. So if you want to go to Malee's and spend the extra $$$$$$$ for Americanized -Thai food be my guest.
I have been going to this place since 2000, and believe they are the cleanest family owned dine-in asian restaurant that I have seen. If the health issues were so bad, I think the dept. would have closed them down for a period of time to fix their violations. I haven't seen any closed sign by them yet, so I think after 25 years they must be doing something right.
Chef's Way or the Highway, I guess... – I moved to Phoenix about 3 months ago from Seattle, and missed all that great Thai food; the Seattle area has just a huge number of delicious Thai restaurants everywhere. I didn't find that to be the case here in Phoenix. I tried a Thai/fusion place in Scottsdale that was nice to look at, but the food was dreadful. Then I came upon this place...
I have eaten here a few times, and ordered take-out a few times as well, and I always enjoyed what I ordered. Good quality, nice flavor. I'd give it an overall 8 out of 10.
But today, I wanted to order pad thai, with NO SHRIMP, and the order taker said "NO. You must have it with shrimp." He explained that today the cook was mad or whatever, and would refuse to serve pad thai unless it had shrimp in it, regardless of what kind of pad thai the customer ordered. I always order pad thai chicken, with NO SHRIMP. And today they say NO WAY, you MUST have the shrimp included as well. Makes no sense. And I hate shrimp.
So...I guess I'm back to looking for another Thai restaurant in Phoenix.
Great Thai food, so-so service – Ordered the chicken and green beans and the PAd Thai, both dishes were served hot, tasty and in great proportions. Their Pad Thai is on the sweeter chili and peanut side, use excellent cuts of chicken (breast) and fresh veggies (extra-crunchy bean sprout). I ordered the chicken/beans mild spicy, and didn't think it was spicy at all - if I return I'll have to take the challenge for hot spicy. Prices were good, but running $2-3 higher per dish, compared to my home town. Service was a little lagging and is IMHO the reason I didn't give it a higher rating.
Time-honored recipes for traditional Thai cuisine lure spice-hungry followers and longtime fans. – In Short
The door jingles open to the smell of exotic curry in Thai Lahna, which means "pioneer", an appropriate name considering the restaurant has been touted since 1982 for its authentic dishes and generous portions. The panang phahk sweetens dried curry with coconut milk and peanut sauce, while a dark soy reveals the milder rice noodles and crisp broccoli in the phaht sii-iiw. Conclude with coconut ice cream dusted with freshly crushed peanuts.
Too Spicy?? – My husband and I recently ventured over to Thai Lahna. It was absolutely amazing. It was a true Thai experience! Being from Cajunland, we both ordered our meals spicy. They were WONDROUS! It was like having a party in my mouth, but not so hot that we can't taste the food. We ordered an appetizer of eggrolls, #39, and #69. We even stayed and had their delicious coconut ice cream! A great find! :)
Oh yeah! – What can I say.. awesome place! Everything we had was great!
This is the best kept secret here in the Valley. Thai Lahna happens to be the most amazing Thai restaurant I have ever been to! The flavors of this cusine is unlike anything I have tasted before. I have to recommend #63 with shrimp and #71 with chicken! You won't be disappointed I promise!
best spices – mid-range $ (think olive garden prices), small, usually crowded, but CLEAN, ORGANANIZED and family owned. they have the very best spice combinations in the world. not too heavy on garlic, soy, peppers, etc. all the different flavors come through. never have i found better spiced food than this restaurant. i have been visiting them a couple times a year for over 9 years.
