    Cute little spot that you could easily miss on a drive by. Cozy atmosphere and wonderful food. Be careful! Their medium (3 out of 5) spice is killer hot for some folks.

    Thai E-San distinguishes itself with bold, pungent flavors and some unusual items that you don't find just anywhere, like tangy sausages filled with pork and pork skin. Read more

    Voted the best of Phoenix? Had special, chicken dumplings. Sauce thick and salty, YUCK. Pad thai, THE WORST Portions small for price. I wouldn't have paid $10 for this dinner, cost $20! YUCK!

    Great Midtown Thai joint specializing in northern Thai cuisine. All the basics are dynamite here, but for an extra special treat, be sure to try the powerfully savory BBQ Thai Chicken.

    You must try the pork spareribs. It will change your life! With love, The Mayor.

    Try the Thai BBQ Chicken! An alluring marinade infuses the meat with great flavor, while giving the deeply caramel-colored coating a savory, salty boost - it's one of Michele Laudig's Favorite Dishes! Read more
