I'm a fan of Thai food, so I have high expectations, and this place was surprisingly good. The Pad Thai was above average, with a slightly sweet flavor, and the thai iced tea was delicious. Not the best Thai I've ever had, but definitely solid.

I had decent fried rice and satay. The menu is more limited than I am used to in Thai restaurants and I had to wait too long for my take out order.

This does a brisk business at lunch which is when I've eaten there. Service is spotty but the entrees and soups are well-seasoned and served hot. There are a few outside tables which are comfortable for most months of the year. I don't eat pad thai but my friends order it a lot.

Food was very good and great price. Everything was fresh and spicy. Not many people on a week night but good service. Kind of hard to find, but worth the search.

What I love about Kitima's is the diversity of people you find there. Not once have we gone and not enjoyed a conversation with a new stranger. My review is more about the Bar section of Kitima's. The restaurant food can be average at the best of times but the gorgeous decor makes the experience so worthwhile. I don't know... More

This place is fantastic. I've eaten here around 15 times now, having visited regularly for several years while in town on business. The wait staff is incredibly kind and accommodating, suggesting (successfully, I might add) dishes according to what I said I liked. They always are kind and attentive and genuinely seem happy that I am enjoying the food or... More

We have had far better experience with Thai food. When ordering we had clearly mentioned that we wanted to have something spicy, the Bangkok duck served looked good, but tasted like molten candy over BURNT DUCK. A stick "STAY AWAY" if you are in the mood of something spicy. Calamari served was under cooked, seemed to have jumped on to... More

I went to Kitima not too long ago. This restaurant is a little hard to find. It is in an office courtyard on the ground level. Small and quaint venue. The food was tasty thai....not too different than anywhere else you may have had thai food. What makes Kitima different is the staff, location and free refills on your Thai... More
