My family and I went to Lahn Pad Thai the other night. We order a couple of appetizers (Fresh Rolls and Angel Wings) the appetizers came out really quick and tasted really really good especially the Fresh rolls. It was Pretty and different from others that I've tasted. I can taste everything inside it . (shrimp, chicken, lettuce, apple, cucumber, celery and more..) dipping it in the sweet chili peanut sauce was awesome. The stuff wings was so good and crispy. It was stuff with clear noodles, pork and veggetables . We then order some Pad Thai noodles , Kiew Warn Chicken (green curry), Krapoa Shrimp and Tom yum chicken. Our dinner came out pretty quick. The portions were big, Pad Thai tasted so good, not too dried like some other restaurants, the kiew warn was not too spicy and creamy came with green peas, bamboo shoots and fresh basil that was good too, krapoa shrimp was good and tasty with bamboo shoots, string beans and fresh basil , you can taste the fresh garlic and the Thai chili , the spices were perfect, they also use large shrimp not small ones. For the Tom yum, It was so good ...I can taste and the smell all the flavors, lemon grass, limes leaves the chilis. Over all my dinner at Lahn Pad Thai was awesome my family and I enjoy it very much., I can say that Lahn Pad Thai is my favorite place for Thai food.
They have the cleanest tasting (not muddy) catfish I have tasted anywhere in anchorage to date. I thought they were prepared just perfect. The sweet tea is soooo good. The red beans and rice was perfect. I have tried other items from the menue in past visits and have not been disapointed with anything.. It was all "Smack your face Delicious!!!" The service was right on it. Friendly smiles and Great food! When you go in, you walk up to the counter and place your order. Then you go sit down and they bring your food to you. If you need extras... Go to the counter and ask. (~: They are eager to make you visit a return visit. Everything is consistant each time I go there. The portions are worth the money I am never hungry when I leave and I walk out with a smile. Now I am having a craving for catfish. Good thing I am going to Anchorage in a couple of days. This place is definately a MUST stop! \\
The food is great! The prices are AWESOME! The service... kind of slow, but who cares? They're not rude, just slow. Their employee customer ratio doesn't seem adequate, but I assure you it's worth it! I go there fairly often, and I've only come across one child... He could be 12yrs old, give or take. I wouldn't exactly think that means it's being run by children. I think whoever wrote that other review must be lacking in taste bud expertise, and quite possibly a little too uptight . Have fun finding an Asian restaurant that meets your high standards. Thai Kitchen is great. Don't let this funny little restaurant fool you, the food is delicious.
