Readers' Choice: Taste of Thailand
Step into US Thai on a busy afternoon, when both of the small dining rooms are full and the rail of the open kitchen is crowded with dupes, and you can watch the blur of the cooks at work. With the grates popped on the ancient, fire-breathing hot-top and water cascading down the backsplash to keep the whole place from burning down, they never stop moving, never stop tinkering, never stop adding to a plate, a bowl, an oil-seasoned wok, until an entree hits the rail. A dozen combative spices, countless vegetables (done rough-chopped, julienned, slivered, batonnet-cut or shaved, each in their proper way), curry as a paste, curry as a powder, nine proteins, broths and bases held aside, rice in the steamers, noodles in the lowboys, fryers always in use, flames always leaping. It's an incredible dance, with results that are almost infallibly delicious, every flavor true. US Thai isn't just the best Thai restaurant in Denver; it serves some of the best Thai food we've ever tasted anywhere.

Beware, there are only three levels of hot on the menu, and be careful because the third level of hot was Thai HOT!!! I am usually a lover of hot things, but we were not warned how hot this was. I would have thought this was a 5+ at most places. Pretty much ruined any taste in the food.

This place gave my girl and i food poisoning. i went back to just let them know and maybe make sure their cooks wash their hands or something and they refused to acknowledge. i didnt want any compensation just an apology but they refused to even listen and quite frankly didnt care. i will never eat at this place again. its not the cleanest thai place i've been into. but i was puking my brains out for 2 days. i would not recommend this place to anyone unless u enjoy praying to the porcelin gods.

Very fast. Amazing service. Definately Thai with altitude. A west side must do joint.

Westword nailed this one. What a wonderful place--food is superb--try everything at least once, and this is a promise: you'll be addicted. US Thai is that good.
