US Thai Cafe

5228 W. 25th Ave. Lakewood, CO 80214 | West Denver Suburbs | 303-233-3345

Location Description:

Owner Ma Vue understands Thai cuisine, and it shows. The fare at his US Thai is simple: authentic street food and everyday food made by cooks and a chef who also understand what that means. The curries are deep and complicated and absolutely addictive; even the simplest fried rice and spring-roll plates are done with style. The dining rooms are small and seating is tight, so you may have to wait - but you can spend that time watching the cooks in the open kitchen work their magic.
