Superior spring rolls, delicious grilled quail, and oustanding duck hot pot. Call ahead for Vietnamese specialties, including duck, goat, and seafood hot pot. -- Mark Jones (12/08)
Chaba is a Thai treasure in the Southside sea of fast and half-fast foods. Sample the creamy coconut-milk curries, the zingy salads, and the chewy-spicy beef jerky. -- Ron Bechtol (09/08)
Newer of the Thai establishments around the Medical Center area. Offers unique dishes such as the green papaya salad. Enjoy the homemade coconut ice cream for dessert.
Nestled in a quiet office center on a nice stretch of Broadway, Mon Thai is bordered by a lovely courtyard on one side and an attractive tree-lined parking lot on the other.
Sawasdee is the sophisticated city cousin of the local Thai tribe - right down to its cool, minty green decor and silk-swathed waitresses. A hands-down favorite is the pad prik king - prok, red bell peppers, crisp green beans, and loads of lemongrass set the dish apart.
The authentic Thai cuisine at this small mom-'n'-pop restaurant is both subtle and sophisticated, spicy and soothing. Don't miss the revelatory Pad Thai, outstanding summer rolls, Lucky L. Original, Topaz of Siam curry, and the Where Are You? appetizer. -- Ron Bechtol (10/08)

; Siam Cuisine is the best Thai Schertz has to offer; it may be the best Thai in San Antonio as well. It’s hard to go wrong with typical dishes such as green papaya salad, but don’t hesitate to order a pork stir fry with loads of lemongrass, an unusually delicate fried rice with “fermented” sausage, or a curry soup with chicken, Middle Eastern spices, tamarind, and coconut milk.

Psst! Here's an insider tip: If, on an ordinary weeknight, you sit at the right table at Sompong's, your culinary/cultural experience will be much enhanced. What is the right table, you ask? The one where the waitresses, when not otherwise occupied, are folding napkins. I'm not talking about picking up a little kitchen Thai on the sly - although the language does have a certain exotic appeal - rather, it's what they're snacking on while working that is interesting: Dried, almost caramelized-looking fish about the size of a quarter were one example; we didn't ask to taste them. But we did sample some pieces of crunchy green papaya dipped in a mixture of sugar, salt, and ground, dried chiles. Great stuff. And you'll never find it on a menu. - Ron Bechtol
In culinary terms, Thai cuisine, followed closely by Vietnamese, has become the new Chinese; it's not yet as ubiquitous (and given that ubiquity breeds buffets, let's hope it never is), but whenever someone suggests eating Asian these days, it's Thai that is at the top of the list. And like Chinese, not all Thai is created equal. There are standout items at most places - the fish cakes at Sarika's and the papaya salad at Sompong's come to mind immediately - but overall, the menu at Thai Cafe delivers diversity and delight. - Ron Bechtol
Fresh, piquant, and authentic Thai cuisine makes it hard to pick a favorite dish, but we’re currently stuck on Rice of the Drunks and the Chicken Larb.
Ridiculously good, huge dishes at rock-bottom prices. - Laura Fries
