So, I've never been here... but I've ordered take out... It's good. Even when the take out service takes forever. Delicious Pad Thai, but holy cow, keep it tame on the mild. I ordered mild + and it was ALMOST too hot... Had to keep wiping my nose but was so happy with how amazing it all was. I ordered... More

This is a real nice Thai restaurant in the Pearl District. I was actually drawn here by the clever name, but the food was great and the service fast. We were there on a weeknight when not crowded so that may have been a factor in getting food served quickly. If in the area and hungry for Thai, I would... More

The lunch at Beau Thai is $7.50 for a generous portion of food. The vegetables are not overcooked and the meat is tender. We asked for our food to be served family style so that we could taste each other's dishes. The ginger sauce was very mild and the peanut sauce tasted more like just peanut butter. I am use... More

We ate here last week, enjoyed finding bright, beautiful, flavorful Thai food! The selection is excellent including vegan. Level of spice goes from mild to fire food. All our selections were delicious. Basic wine/beer list. Very good service and the atmosphere is inviting. Street car about three blocks away. We'll be back on our next visit!

Pad thai was very good. Other dishes were OK, but I've had better Thai food elsewhere. Prices are reasonable and service was good.

My son and I love this restaurant. We've been going for about 6 years and it's one of our favorites. We are total peanut sauce addicts and Beau Thai has a wonderful peanut sauce chicken - which is exactly that: it's a giant bowl (literally one dish serves two), full of chicken swimming in peanut sauce, topped with peanuts. There... More

Lots of menu choices, including all of the Thai standard dishes. They adapt to dietary restrictions without making any fuss. All five dishes we had were delicious and the service was friendly and efficient.

Have been going to Beau Thai for 12 years off and on - hasn't changed much, and that's not a bad thing... but could maybe use a little bit of an exterior/interior remodel to gain more foot/car traffic interest. Food and value are solid. Unfortunately, they changed their recipe for Pad Thai a long time ago (used to come with... More
