Golden Thai on Church St

Has anyone been to this restaurant? I know there have been several posts and reviews on the "best" Thai restaurant, but I'm looking for a special place for our anniversray. I'd rather not go to Bankok Gardens.

Can anyone give me their thoughts on "Golden Thai"?

  1. Have been there. Some folks think it is one of the best local places around. A little greasy for me. But a great find non the less.

    1. It's OK - and that sums it up.
      I'd recommend Linda's as the'special place' - resembles a Bistro but serves Thai food.
      Only drawback is having to enter through the line-up for the Salad King downstairs, which ill-prepares you for the calm upstairs.

        Looking at the menu, it seems like Linda is much more Thai-fusion than Thai. Most of their dishes are not Thai. This, of course, doesn't invalidate the flavour (I have yet to try it, and I look forward to it), but just a word of warning.

      2. Just went recently, good lunch specials. Golden Thai is one of the more nicer thai places in terms of decor/ambiance. But Linda's probably still best and only higher end thai.

        1. I used to go quite frequently for lunch for convenience sake. I liked it, but wouldn't go out of my way again.

          FYI, since I've just posted about finding a good thai restaurant, I guess I either didn't consider this because I've been so many times, or because I wasn't wowed by it enough to return.

          1. I went to Golden Thai on New Year's Eve. The decor was nice, but I wasn't much wowed by the dishes; it seemed to be about 50/50. Some of them were very good, and others were just bland and completely unmemorable. I would hesitate to recommend it.
