I’ve had a lot of Thai food, but Krua Thai is the restaurant that my family and I keep coming back to. The owners here are so sweet and the food is just divine. My Mom is in love with their Yellow Curry and I adore their Thai Sweet Basil. I always start out with their sweet Thai Iced Tea with just a splash of cream. If you go to Krua Thai for their lunch special you’ll get to enjoy fresh spring rolls with sweet and sour sauce as well as their daily soup. I would come to Krua Thai JUST for the soup!
Their soup is made daily and it is always a bit different, sometimes it has tofu, sometimes, rice noodles, but the broth is always refreshing and peppery. If you’re craving something sweet, Krua Thai’s coconut ice cream is amazing!
Krua Thai also has some great appetizers, including a Crispy Tofu which is served with a sweet and sour garlic sauce. Their Yellow Curry is the best I’ve ever had, a perfect balance of sweet, spicy and savory, jeweled with carrots, onions, as well as potatoes that melt in your mouth. The Thai Sweet Basil is equally overwhelming in flavor; it has green beans, bell peppers and onions in a sweet and spicy sauce with delicate thai basil leaves throughout. The Thai basil perfumes the dish with an enticing aroma. We also love their Thai iced tea.
Krua Thai was on the Phoenix Best of the Valley for 2012 best Thai food, and we definitely agree!
