    55555 by Lisa Han

    55555 by Russell H.

    55555 by Joe

    55555 by Julia J

    22222 by Alejandra C.

    55555 by Gusto Del Buen Vivir


  • Josh K.Order the Son In Law and grab a bottle or two of The Bride of the Fox.

    33333 by Josh K.


  • Andrey KlenJungle curry is crazy hot. Also the owner Rick is a great guy. The place was super busy and we waited our meal for 45 minutes, so he payed the bill.

    33333 by Andrey Klen


  • Glenda M.Chicken confit curry, son-in-law, and crab fried rice make an excellent trio for sharing.

    55555 by Glenda M.

    55555 by Avery Epstein


  • David SzwedoRene the bartender was great! Busy Valentine's night and we got our food pretty quickly. Delicious. And spicy. Loved it. Try the jungle curry. The ribs were great too.

    55555 by David Szwedo


  • John GannonEverything was amazing. Wish I lived in Austin, I'd be here once a week.

    55555 by John Gannon


  • Marcus M.Basically anything on the menu is delicious. Family style with their portion sizes is odd though.

    55555 by Marcus M.


  • Victor MedinaAny option you can try is perfect, my favorite reataurant by far

    55555 by Victor Medina


  • Bryant LukSon in Law is great and not spicy. The Tiger Cry is very tender and has a nice kick. Jungle Curry is hot. Great decorations but not Thai authentic. Most Austinites and visitors would love the mood.

    55555 by Bryant Luk


  • Diana RomeroBuenísimo!!!!! El postre chai cake está increíble!

    55555 by Diana Romero


  • Barbara GaribayDelicioso!

    55555 by Barbara Garibay


  • Danielle V.The wild boar ribs were insanely flavorful and spicy!! Probably my favorite part of the meal. Chinese broccoli was nicely done as well, very savory. Both apps were enough to split btwn two people.

    55555 by Danielle V.


  • Scott ShawTruly a fantastic atmosphere and meal. The green curry in particular was outstanding - very spicy

    55555 by Scott Shaw


  • Jen F.Jungle curry!

    55555 by Jen F.


  • B WNot as good for indoor seating as outdoor. Son in law and nashi pear chicken are both great.

    55555 by B W


  • Josh A.Delicious up-scale thai food. Smaller portions means sharing opportunities. It's community seating and kind of loud.

    55555 by Josh A.


  • ASK Gwen C.The Kai Yaang chicken dish was amazing!!

    55555 by ASK Gwen C.


  • Gregg BernsteinPapaya salad is refreshing and spicy all at once. Green curry is excellent. Best stateside pad Thai.

    55555 by Gregg Bernstein


  • Erika LoyaI love the contemporary Thai Fusion. I had the Tigers Eye(?) it was amazing! The set up is Communal dinning which is trendy so its great if your single but I personally love traditional seating

    55555 by Erika Loya

  • Corey W.Everything we've had here is delicious — you can't go wrong — but the Son in Law is definitely one of the best.

    55555 by Corey W.


  • Madelyn G.It's way too loud, get takeout. The ingredients are deliciously fresh and authentic. The dishes are below basic, but are very very much helped by the fresh ingredients.

    55555 by Madelyn G.

    55555 by Cody L.

  • Susan K.Green curry

    55555 by Susan K.

    55555 by David S.

    55555 by Sebastian Hassinger


  • Mike S.Everything

    55555 by Mike S.

    55555 by Frani L.


  • Katherine M.Food blogger Hank Shaw of Hunter Angler Gardener Cook said he loved the jasmine tea panna cotta with lychee/coconut sorbet here.

    55555 by Katherine M.


  • Ignacy Z.Fantastic, layered flavors. A welcome change from the standard US Thai fare.

    55555 by Ignacy Z.


  • Colin N.The prawn appetizer and the jungle curry were good selections.

    55555 by Colin N.


  • PlesserchickGet the fried rice. Was a last-minute call & blew everyone's minds. Of five dishes, this was the table's favorite.

    33333 by Plesserchick


  • EaterThe curries are hot and flavorful, and the vegetable dishes are especially good. The dining room does get buzzy and loud during dinner; quieter diners should check out lunch. [Eater 38 Member]

    55555 by Eater

    55555 by Shelby L.

  • Sajid S.It was meh..

    33333 by Sajid S.

    55555 by Minh Tran


  • DarkSkin 🌺 Q.The Green Curry is a tiny bit spicy but delicious, it goes great with the Ginger Ale they make in house.

    55555 by DarkSkin 🌺 Q.


  • Social N.Great, warm atmosphere in the heart of downtown. Order the jungle curry and don't miss out on their iced teas. No reservations are accepted and the seating is community style, so be prepared to wait.

    55555 by Social N.

    22222 by RevsLaws

    55555 by Brian K.


  • Tara C.Perfect food. Had a refreshing Italian rosé while waiting for a table. Downside: it's loud so although it's communal dining, would b hard w/a group but if u scoot close to ur sweeties, ur good!

    55555 by Tara C.


  • Cara M.The raw oysters are amazing

    55555 by Cara M.


  • Shellie MSit at the bar for a view of the kitchen in action! Try the Green Curry if you can handle some spice that is!

    55555 by Shellie M


  • Jeremy H.Must haves: Raw oysters are amazing, the peanut sauce on the satay rocks. For main dishes, you can't go wrong with the jungle curry or son in law - friggin both are amazing! Grab a Chang beer too!

    55555 by Jeremy H.

    55555 by Stephanie H.


  • Carlos R.First of all if you're looking for traditional or authentic Thai, don't go here. I had Thom ka ghai soup and it was so sweet it was gross. The path Thai was meh. Not impressed at all, won't be back.

    33333 by Carlos R.


  • Cyndi B.Green Curry is a must. You won't regret it !

    55555 by Cyndi B.


  • Austin ChronicleThe Thai-based menu offers the ideal platform for innovation at this South First hot boîte. The food is divine – and often quite spicy – and we especially love the simple but stunning peanut curry.

    55555 by Austin Chronicle


  • chris e.I wouldn't waste your time on the appetizers. Mediocre at best. The Tom kha gai was awesome though. Other faves were jungle curry and pad kwetio. Definitely more of a fusion than traditional Thai.

    33333 by chris e.

    55555 by Kristen Raines


  • Marina G.Amazing pad thai, the fried fish with coconut cream, deserts are delicious!

    55555 by Marina G.


  • Elizabeth F.If you're going to come on a Saturday evening come earlier for good parking. If you sit at the bar style table facing Elizabeth St. You might get the pleasant aroma of the jasmine flowers.

    55555 by Elizabeth F.


  • Wendy Jo P.Save room for dessert !!

    55555 by Wendy Jo P.


  • Joel M.If you like avocado, try the avocado sorbet! So good!

    55555 by Ryan A.


  • Samantha N.Just eat and be happy

    55555 by Samantha N.


  • NadineThe best part here is the dessert: the Thai tea affragato. The pastry chef is elite. Do not order the Tom kha or wings. The beef fried rice and cuttlefish were good.

    55555 by Nadine


  • Kyle B.Australian Thai from the La Condesa guys. The Jungle Curry and Nashi Pear Chicken are the truth.

    55555 by Kyle B.


  • Serious EatsKai Yaang: Large pieces of charcoal grilled rotisserie chicken are tossed with an herb salad and loads of fried shallots. Ask for a side of nam prig pow, their housemade Thai chili jam.

    55555 by Serious Eats


  • Karla SWow! What a service... staff is excellent! Always on point

    55555 by Karla S

  • Sarah S.Tiger cry beef is delicious! Even the plain pad Thai is to die for.

    55555 by Sarah S.


  • Steve F.Awesome food, but be prepared for seating at large group tables, with narrow aisles that lead to lots of bumps and "excuse me" experiences from the waitstaff.

    55555 by Steve F.


  • Diego P.Make sure you top off whatever deliciousness you eat here with the decadent "Jasmine Tea Panna Cotta"

    55555 by Diego P.

  • Nick S.the Son In Law. you want to eat this.

    33333 by Nick S.


  • Natalie CIf you're allergic to shellfish, double check with the server when you order. They sometimes garnish with dried shrimp without it being on the menu ingredient list.

    33333 by Natalie C


  • Joe M.Dare to be different: try one of the drinking vinegars.
