Horrible lunchtime buffet - avoid – This sie does not let me rate this 1/2 of a star, so I am giving it 1 star.

This food here may have the distinction of being one of the worst food I have eaten ever both in terms of quality and taste. The buffet consisted of Tum Yum soup which was plaussible and it goes downhill from here! The remaining dishes on the buffet other then the fried wontons and fried rice crisps are:

1. Eggrolls with oil oozing out of them,

2. Pud thai noodles floating in oil (never seen them this way before)

3. A mash of greasy chicken, bean sprouts and bamboo shoots

4. Deep fried ribs, and

5. Some sort of very low quality taco meat/hambuger meat type dish, floating in you guessed it, grease.

Avoid, Avoid, Avoid!

How did it get rated the Best ??? – I don?t know what all this hype is about !!!. Having read the reviews on multiple sites I wanted to check this place out. The place is pretty neat. You can get a glimpse of them cooking. The service was bad we had to be seated for about 15 minutes till we got the attention of the waiter.

Coming from an Asian country we also have a lot of dishes made out of coconut milk those which are spicy. I doubt that this place has neither the original coconut milk nor the spices.

I ordered the ?shrimp Pud Prig Sohd? and wanted it ***** Thai Spicy (which is suppose to be extra spicy). Leaving the fact that I have to dive into it to find actual shrimp (since the whole dish was filled with baby corn and peppers and had only 6 actual shrimp), the whole idea of making the dish spicy was ruined as the dish was very sweet in taste and they have added to chili powder to make it spicy.

My boyfriend ordered ?beef Pud prig Sod? which was moderate and had nothing Thai about it.

My friend had ?Volcano Tofu? although they boast for it to be spicy that dish was very sweet as well. It was like they have put some sweet and sour source to the fried tofu.(nothing Thai about that dish as well)

This is the best Thai??? – I went here thinking this was the best Thai place in Milwaukee. I ordered one of the most quintescential Thai dishes, Phad Thai. It was oily and flavorless. The service was inattentive, I sat there for 10 minutes with an empty water glass. I think Thai Palace has much better food, and decent service. Don't get why this is the best...

Nice ambiance, good food, and good service, but overpriced. – Upscale decor, nice ambiance. Above average food quality. Good service. The curry was very oily. Overall only slightly above average, and not a good value do to extremely high prices, but still the best in Milwaukee just do to lack of alternatives. Thai restaurants on the north side of Chicago an hour and a half away are leaps and bounds better.

Popular downtown restaurant serves classic Thai cuisine in a cozy atmosphere to theatergoers and sports fans. – In Short
Lush landscape paintings of Thailand and unique wood-carved art pieces adorn the dining room as aromatic spices waft in from the kitchen. Patrons sit at regular tables or on plush pillows with their shoes off at low wooden tables. The traditional menu features beef satay and pad thai, along with several standouts like the volcano shrimp--grilled jumbo prawns, perched on a colorful bed of stir-fried vegetables and topped with an intensely flavored chili sauce.

It's pretty good – It's a nice restaurant. check it out and oh ya the parking is located all over but right behind the structure there is a parking lot. Get into the restaurant and get your ticket stamped for free parking.

Try the Volcano Chicken! This is one of the most difficult and complex Thai dishes. The King and I has perfected it. Don't be afraid to go spicy! Personally, I like it so hot I cry. But for those of you who like it a little lighter - try just one or two stars for a sweet and tangy flavor. I have never met anyone who did not enjoy this dish!
