2006 update. A friend really wanted to take us to dinner here.

As before, the food was sub-par. Great people, lousy food. We really wanted to like this restaurant. They're community activists of the highest caliber. Unfortunately, the food is really bad. We ate there three times and every time we were disappointed. The last time (carry out) we threw away the food and cooked. The words "greasy" and "Thai food" should never come together. Too many white onions, not enough vegetables.

Chris, chris..... lousy? Have you had any of the curries? The spring rolls? Did you ask Pak or Cherry, the incredibly gracious owners, to keep the fat content of your food down? This restaurant is filled with love and the food they serve reflects this. I could not honestly say it's the best Thai food I've ever eaten but it is far from lousy. The vegetarian dumplings are perfectly poached. The green and red curries with brown rice (on request) are packed with flavor and when Cherry's in the kitchen she'll pack in even more. I have a special fondness for the Asparagus w/ Basil in Garlic Sauce which they will do "Meg style" which means lots of extra ginger.

So much love goes into the food at Thai Flavors that after eating there, in my not so humble opinion, the least bit weary soul will leave with not only their taste buds singing but their heart a wee bit richer. Un-weary souls just go away happier than ever.

Try this place and don't be afraid to ask for what you want. A business that does so much for its community deserves our support. They deserve for their good will AND for the food.
