Songkran Thai Kitchen - Galleria Ratings and Reviews

2nd time here. This time during Houston Restaurant Weeks 2016. Great value! Tried frog leg appetizer & was surprised how tasty & juicy. Wagyu beef so tender & flavorful. Ended with sticky rice dessert. All superb. Be warned that as evening progressed & space filled up, noise level increased to almost prevent me & my companion from hear each other. Too bad. But that did not diminish the food experience.

The food was awesome, really good tasting entrees and appetizers (we had shrimps and beef noodles of the Restaurant Weeks Menu). The place is a little noisy, because it is very open (one big room) and dining seating is next to the bar. Also, it was a Friday evening.
Our favorite Thai restaurant in Houston. ...
Our favorite Thai restaurant in Houston. Fortunately, it is walkable for us so it has become a go to place to have dinner. The food has character...multiple levels of taste. The curry Wagu beef is outstanding as well as the Singapore noodles. Heat is based on 1 thru 4. For those that like taste but not a mouth burning experience...2 is a good number to start with.
Nice wines and ice cold beer to go with the Thai cuisine. If you like last minute choices, dining at the bar is a great option. Nice bartenders and ESPN!
They earn their great reviews.

Songkran had been our "to try" list for awhile after hearing positive reviews from friends that had experienced the restaurant. The Thai menu does a great job of staying authentic to the country, but without doing anything that feels too unexpected or uncomfortable. It's progressive, flavorful and modern, while retaining traditional flavors and dishes. We started with two appetizers: a soft shell crab with chili glaze (only complaint here was that there wasn't enough glaze - we could have asked for more sauce, but didn't), and a beef dish with sriracha sauce & egg on top. My husband ordered Pad Si-ew (one of his faves) for the main course and I chose a Yellow Curry - both were fantastic. Coupled with a great cocktail menu, and service to go along, we are definitely coming back!
The chicken curry was pretty good. The ...
The chicken curry was pretty good. The service was subpar.. The server seemed disconnected, uninterested, and unfamiliar with the menu and wine list.. The food had to be auctioned (major pet peeve). It seemed that we had to look around for the server, despite the place being half empty.. Overall, the food was good, while the service could use some improvement.
The lunch specials are a good value and ...
The lunch specials are a good value and reasonable amount of food. The salad is especially good and fresh. The waitress recommended the short rib but my guest said the Heavenly Beef was better. There was nothing particularly Thai about the short rib.
Nice Mothers Day on the patio
We visited the Sugar Land location not too long after it opened and that place is a disaster. However, the Galleria location is good enough for another visit. Food was flavorful and well prepared. Service wasnt horrible, but could have been better. Not bad for a last minute Mothers Day reservation.
The waiter was nice but not efficient. W ...
The waiter was nice but not efficient. We sat down at 7:15 and ordered wine which we did not get until 8:50 (after finishing our meal) because the restaurant was out of clean wine glasses, the only "option" we got was to drink our red wine in champagne flutes. The manager did not think this was a big deal and did not offer apologies or for the wine to be complimentary. The kitchen is very slow and the restaurant loud. I would not recommend.
In a word, SUPERB!
Every time that I have visited Songkran Thai Kitchen, I give the establishment five stars. The food is always great, the service exemplary. Songkran is the kind of place that even on the worst of days, you can visit and feel welcomed, and well fed, all in the same time and space.
Keep doing what you are doing. An idea: expand your dessert menu.

Have been here 4 times and never disappointed ! Food quality and consistency are unsurpassed. They have great adult beverages as well. Reasonable priced for the location in UpTown Park. Can't wait until our next visit !
nice place, tasty
We liked our food, but were disappointed that almost everything on their vegetarian menu wasn't available because they'd run out of key ingredients! But what we did have tasted great, and the service was very good. I think it was b/c it was a special occasion and they're not used to that many people in one night.

I have been here twice. One planned and the other time was just a quick stop. The flavors of the dishes are AMAZING...Started with the chicken satay, then the curry lamb and duck dish! YUMYUMYUMMY! The second visit, we ordered the fried rice and a few drinks. So, why the 3stars? It was the service! Drinks were NOT good and SLOW coming out! Waitress did not know or have a good understanding of the menu! Hard to communicate with waitress, language barrier!
delicious food, but tables/ambiance not optimal...
The food was delicious I must say, and some of the best Thai food I've had in Houston in the last 5 years! The tables are very close together and it took 45 minutes for us to be seated despite having a reservation, so could use some improvement there - also very loud. Good food though so worth trying out and prices are reasonable!
