Nothing bad, but also nothing really exceptional. We (a party of 4 friends who eat out together a lot) personally prefer Sukho Thai - a lot. Perhaps LaThai is supposed to be fusion, but they don't really seem to be that either.

We enjoyed our dinner. The atmosphere was nice, the service was very good and the food was excellent. The owner came out and greated us, we enjoyed that also. I would recommend La Thai to friends.

This is more Americanized Thai rather than Authentic. We began our meal with summer rolls. The peanut sauce was mixed with sweet and sour. We enjoyed it but the portion was more of a tapas serving than a sharing appetizer. My husband ordered the yellow curry, I ordered paht Thai chicken only and my daughter had the 3.5oz filet on the children's menu. My daughters filet was rare even though we said medium and the cut was terrible. It tasted like liver. Children don't eat meat that tastes like liver. So she had a very expensive (for a children's meal) plate of French fries. My paht Thai wasn't bad. I nixed the shrimp and had double chicken I'm glad I did because the amount of chicken served wasn't enough for my noodles. Unless, they forgot to add extra chicken which is a possibility. Lastly, my husband took two bites of his curry. He said it was very salty without any other flavors. The only redeeming factor was the service. It wasn't spectacular by any means, the waitress kept having to come back and clarify our order because she'd scamper off every time we finished a sentence. She didn't even mention the fact that we left our meals whole. That leads me to believe either she's seen it enough before to know the food isn't great or she's not a great server. Either way, we won't return and would vehemently discourage anyone thinking of having a meal at La Thai Uptown.

Great Spot for Good Eats
La Thai is a great place for dining on "Asian" food with a twist. We especially like to order a variety of the appetizers seated at the bar. The staff is always attentive and friendly. Prices are pretty reasonable and with good portions. One of our favorite Uptown area eateries.
Best Thai in Town?
Overall the meal was great. The service was quick almost too quick. We were presented with appetizers, drinks, and entrees in a flash that there was none of the normal restaurant layover time to talk. I haven't determined if this was good or bad thing. Food was very delicious with excellent presentation. The cocktails were overpriced for the average consumer. The decor of the restaurant did not match the expected ambiance of that of a normal thai spot. However offered a refreshing ornate dining experience. Overall great choice and would recommend to others. I will be back.

Food was great. Service a little slow considering restaurant was not crowded.
They are trying but
The are very happy to make any dish on the menu veg or vegan which is a big plus. The eggplant starter was outstanding. The rest of the food was good but nothing special. The service was ok. There was a bit to much of the "How is everything?" type of check-in and not enough promptness in order taking. The one thing that will keep me from ever going back, however, was the noise level. My wife and I practically had to shout at each other to carry on a conversation.

I love this place it's Thai food with a Cajun twist!! I've tried several Thai places and they're by far the best!!!!
Good appetizers, good food, good atmoshpere!
Located in a nice spot in uptown New Orleans Garden District off Prytania next door to Creole Creamery. The appetizers were delicious and the recommended entree, Crab 3 Ways, is excellent!!! Great service. The ambience is nice, not too loud, with low lighting (but not too low). Perfect restaurant for a "date night."

Great Thai restaurant
It is very good. Much better than a typical thai restaurant in the US. The only drawback is that the prices are quite high for a thai restaurant.

This was our second visit to this restaurant and our meals were just as good as the first time. We also had Cory as our server again. He is very attentive to our needs and always makes good menu recommendations. We'll be back.
Awesome as Always!!

cold, loud, and busy staff but food was very good
The building has a concrete floor and open ceiling and was quite noisy and cold when we were there. The fish was done perfectly, the portions are not too large, which I appreciate. The staff was pleasant but maybe overworked as the appetizer came out very fast, but then there was probably 30 min. before the entree, and hard to get his attention to get the bill. Overall good food but there are so many amazing places to eat in New Orleans, I don't think we'll be back anytime soon.
Solid Thai Fusion
La Thai offers outstanding Thai food but with a South Louisiana twist to some dishes. Traditional Thai is very good and the creative dishes shine. On a recent visit I ordered surf and turf special, which while a bit pricey, was stellar. A tender, flavorful filet mignon topped with a fried softshell crab and some lump crabmeat! Wow. Getting again just writing about it. Service was attentive without being too fussy.

Great food, service, and atmosphere
Was my first visit, and was a great one. I am a curry fanatic, and their red was among the best I've ever had. Great, attentive service and though they were out of my date's favorite wine, the substitute they recommended was very good. Definitely will come back and recommend it to my friends.

La Tahi is always good!
The entries are always delicious and complex. This time we got the more standard fare: crab cakes and Phat Woon Sen. And they were delicious as well! Good service, nice wine list. We will return.

First time at this location. Was looking for a nice northern Italian restaurant. Very nice corner location near French market. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful. We had bruchetta which was fresh and tasted great! Our main dishes were the Italian sausage pasta and lasagna both were very good. The chocolate "cookie" and lemon desert were both excellent. Would definitely go back.
