    Beware of pricing bait and switch! The food is good (let’s start with that— it’s good Thai)— BUT— the menu linked from this Google site is NOT what we were charged for takeout. I’m looking at the menu and receipt right now: salad rolls are 9 on the menu; they charged us $12. Pad Thai with tofu is 14 on the menu, they charged us $20. And so on. This is bait and switch, and we were not told until we arrived to pick up the food. Plus— a 20 percent service charge was automatically added on top of the already inflated bill, for takeout. The cashier just said “I know, we raised our prices. Covid and all” when asked about the dramatic price discrepancy. It seemed she felt bad, but nonetheless, that didn’t solve our problem. I don’t object to paying for good food. I DO object to being lied to. As for the service charge, 20 percent seems a little steep— and it, like the menu prices, should be transparent, not a surprise at pick-up. If we hadn’t been hungry and had hungry people at home, we could have walked away. If we had seen the prices up front and made an informed decision, we might have even posted a decent review as the food is good, had we not been charged overall about half again as much as we expected. Super disappointing. We won’t be back.

    Cool spot but not amazing. Worst part was the mango sticky rice - mango was underripe and nearly inedible. Service was super slow too. I’d like to come back after some time to try again, seems like it would be great.

    This town has no Asian but has this wonderful Thai food. We ordered 4 dishes, included bison pho and duck noodles. We love every dishes!

    TLDR: Slow order, good service, delicious food. We (party of 3) walked in around 5:30 in the evening and were immediately seated at one of only two open tables. The rest were filled. Adding onto the effect of busyness, we could see all the servers scurrying around and the kitchen staff (open kitchen concept) actively cooking. We were given our menus and a tall bottle of tap water to keep in the center of our table for refills, although we were poured water from a separate pitcher when first seated. We were served by two waitstaff, one by the name of Stacy (hopefully spelled that right) who was especially attentive. She came around after five minutes to take our orders. We got a local IPA beer and a Thai Iced Tea for drinks, and a Bison Pho, Mango Penang Curry (w/ beef), and a Pad Kee Mao (w/ chicken) for our mains. I asked for a level 2 spice in the noodle, and my fellow diner ordered a LEVEL 4 SPICE in the curry. Our drinks were delivered almost immediately. The beer was light (both look and taste) and very refreshing. The tea was creamy and sweet. Our food, on the other hand, came after a thirty minute wait. We could see that there were many order slips in the kitchen but we never got a heads-up until later (read below). When our food finally came, we dug in. Almost immediately I began suffering. My “level 2 spice” noodle dish tasted like a level 99 spice dish. I don’t know what went wrong, why it went wrong, how or where it went wrong, but apparently my fellow diners believed it was an appropriate level 2 spice. I sat here blowing my nose and eating ice cubes at the spiciness. I then tried the curry, which happened to be LESS SPICY than what I had eaten from my noodles. Go figure. Anyway, the noodles were chewy and the sauce was sweet yet sour. Absolutely delicious. The curry was creamy, full of flavor, and understandably spicy. It came with a side of white rice. The bison pho was delicious as well. The broth was clean (for lack of a better word) and the meat was tender. After we had finished (and I had finished suffering), our waitress Stacy came by to ask about desert. We ordered a lava cake. That took fifteen minutes to arrive. Halfway through Stacy came back around and looked surprised that we hadn’t received our cake yet, saying “usually it comes out right away.” Eventually, the cake came, and with two scoops of vanilla ice cream to accompany it. The cake was delivered by our other waiter, who was apologetic and said that the kitchen was totally swamped in takeout orders and again reiterated that usually it would take much less time to dish out a lava cake. Anyway, the lava cake was decadent, gooey, and very not deficient in sugar. Closing thoughts? Thanks for the awesome service and a special hats off to Stacy. Food, delicious. Spice, killed me. Warm decor. Orders took a bit too long to come out. Otherwise, would recommend and come back again.

    The food there was phenomenal. The food I ordered was curry and pho. The flavor just hit my ideal spot. It was very popular so my friends and I had to wait for a table when we first got there. The duck curry was very yummy according to my friend. It was recommended from some of my coworkers when they visited this place. Highly recommended. I was in Ada, WY for a business trip last summer and I wouldn't mind driving half an hour to eat at Teton Thai. So now you can see how much I like this place. The price is a little high but it is reasonable in a touristy town.
