La Thai consistently proves itself to be the best Thai restaurant in the city. This place looks good, the food tastes great and the drinks menu is mighty fine. Every dish we had this visit was delicious. Thoroughly recommended.

Calamari was delicious. The duck cubes in my entree were chewy instead of tender. Decent service my food came out so fast I was not able to adjust my order after finding out my app was huge for just one person. This helped to sour my experience.

It was my son's birthday and he wanted Thai food. He loves La Thai so it was an easy choice of where to go. Neither he nor the other two of us were disappointed. The food is always great and because it was his birthday he received a piece of "birthday" cake (red velvet cake) with a candle. That made it truly special for him.

My husband and I love this restaurant. It's perfect for a date night. I had the Spring rolls and they were delicious. I also had the Tom Kar Gai soup and my husband had Hot &a Sour soup. Both were yummy. For an entree we split the Panko crusted Sea Bass. It was the perfect amount to split, and delicious.

The food is always amazing at La Thai, and I like the renovations. However, the service was really poor. At first, our server was nice and she gave great recommendations. Our food came out quickly, and she checked on us to see how everything was. After this, we never saw her again until she picked up the credit card we had left on the table. We had waited and waited for an extremely long time for any acknowledgement. She seemed to struggle with multi-tasking. It wasn't busy, but once she had an additional table to wait on and bring drinks to, she completely forgot us. We were there almost an hour and a half.
That being said, she was nice, and the food was delicious. That just concerned me -- what if it had been busy??

The redfin dish was terrific. We had a grilled chicken dish with sauce on the side that was quite bland (first item on the menu under chicken). Our server was great and everyone helped out so very attentive service. Very cold at front of the house but better in back where we were seated. Somewhat loud music. Very hip decor.

Loved food as always. On this occasion our server didn't keep up with our table. She took our appetizer order and didn't come back until I asked another server for her. By that time our appetizers had already come and done with.

Diana (the owner) and her crew were so great to host our large party of 18. The staff was very attentive and accommodating. When we first arrived Diana came up to introduce herself to use and made sure we were well taken care of. For vegetarians and gluten free (legitimate ones, not the ones that pretend to be) diners there are so many options. Great food and good drinks. This is my 3rd time in New Orleans and I make sure to visit La Thai every time I'm in town.

Food was amazing - fresh, delicious. The Tom yum soup is phenomenal as was the friedcalamari and coconut shrimp. Looking forward to going back and trying other options on the menu - a lot to choose from. The Rose cocktail with blood orange was delish as well.

Great food, but not a good idea to go to La Thai 2nd day after renovations. A long wait for water, drink, and menu. Ran out of a few of their most favorite food items and the computers had some pricing problems. Had fun anyway and would go back again.

My friend & I love La Thai. We come as often for lunch as possible. The service is always excellent. You cannot find any tastier seafood dishes and FRESH than here. We actually brought a small cake the last time and the girls were happy to put it in the frig for us until we were ready. They even put 3 candles on the cake and added a cake serving knife. It was my friends birthday and a send off as she was leaving for Rome & the Swiss Alps the next day.
Their new remodel is very nice giving a very inviting cocktail hour space.

Ordered an appetizer initially. Took a long time but when it came it was good. Before we were halfway through she brought the entrees. When I asked why she didn't wait until we were finished with our appetizer, she said she brought the entrees when they were ready and said "you don't want them to get cold do you" in a very snippy way. Server was rude and ignored us through the meal and I had to spend an inordinate amount of time just getting the check.

Was just ok, service was AWEFUL. I ordered the Spicy Thai Basil which comes with Chicken and Shrimp and the forgot to included the shrimp🙄. So I mentioned it and 30 minutes later here comes the owner with the shrimp in a cup🤔🤔. Will not return.

It's been at least a year a year ago I've dined at La Thai. I remember my experiences more enjoyable than today. Restaurant had an awful sewer smell. Hot & humid. One of the AC units went out per waitress. I noticed the restaurant wasn't as crowded as previous times I've visited. I thought maybe because it's a Monday. Waitress was inexperienced & inattentive. Ordered glass noodles for my 2 year old daughter, received rice noodles instead. Informed waitress, she was very adimant it was glass noodles. I'm Asian, I'm very familiar with rice & glass noodles. Requested for her to ask the kitchen & clearly they confirmed I received rice noodles. Received correct order but the noodles were broken in pieces & were overly sweet. My husband ordered pineapple fried rice. Needless to say, everyone's food came out but his. Asked waitress if she put in the order, she came back to the table & said she accidentally deleted his order. Received our check, waitress writes in the tip line more than 20%. I've never experienced this service ever. I understand parties of 6 or more, you're automatically charged an 18% tip but it's included in the check, not written in. To top it off, she was supposed to tip on pretax amount, not subtotal amount. Will never return to this restaurant. Food quality & service is not how I remembered it to be.
