Thai - Toms River

We have a new Thai restaurant in Toms River. Just opened today. The sign on the store-front simply says "Thai Food." Inside there are about a half dozen small tables. The menu offers 2 appetizers, 5 salads, 2 soups, and 6 entrees.

Thai is located on Fischer Blvd, near and on the same side of the street as the Wawa gas station.

Open for lunch Tuesday - Saturday. Open for dinner Tuesday - Sunday. Address and hours posted in the linked place.

  1. Finally I have to give it a shot asap....

    1. nj - Since it is such a small menu, would you mind posting the names and prices of the dishes?

      1. could it be???? thai food in TR??? won't get my hopes up but i was very happy at aamaratran(sp?) so i guess its possible..... i will definitely go tuesday and report back.

        1. njfreqflyer/bgut1,

          I am excited to see the offering of Thai food! Not many places are doing that in TR, there are areas with combination of Thai/Chinese....(all I can think of is Wang Sushi, which I found out from this site!)
          I will check out this place in the next few days and will try to get the menu here!

              Sounds great. I definitely intend to give it a try. BTW, I assume by spicy soup they mean tom yum.
              nj - What have you tried?

              1. re: bgut1

                bugt1, I'm sure that you will hit this place for lunch next week - let us know what you think. The wife and I love Thai food and would gladly drive down to TR, if it is decent.

                  1. re: JerzeyShore

                    Have you tried the Thai menu items at Pagoda Tea House on Rt70 in Lakewood.....?

                    1. re: Tapas52

                      Tapas52, we have never been to the Pagoda Tea house but will have to try it.
                      How is their other asian food? Thanks for the tip...

                      1. re: JerzeyShore

                        JerzeyShore we have always enjoyed the food at pagoda.....the family is from Malaysia hence the twist on their chinese style food......plus they offer a full page Thai menu which makes it more special.& you can mix & match.I enjoy the Thai Spring rolls & Thai soups also...the Basil beef is another favorite.....give it a shot I think you will enjoy it.....

                        1. re: JerzeyShore

                          I go to the Pagoda Tea house all the time. Great food. Decent service. One of my favorite places to eat in the area.

                          1. re: recordweb

                            The wontons at Pagoda Tea house are AMAZING!
                            Now I want a bowl of soup.

                            1. re: shabbystorm

                              The pad thai there is really tasty too! I've been craving it for weeks.

                  2. re: njfreqflyer

                    Wanting this place to be good and not willing to wait for more reviews to come in we went for dinner on Sunday. Bottom line - lacking. In spite of the fact that we asked for the real deal Thai spicy the food was not spicy at all. There may be potential here but only if they are willing to use some heat which given the location of the restaurant it is doubtful. We too witnessed several people come in and ask for NO SPICE. Go figure ...

                    1. re: JerzeyShore

                      I was thinking the same thing the location might not be right for thai cuisine. I would bet soon to stay afloat they will go more Chinese.
