Valley Thai

The Valley Thai, located at 1725 E. Warm Springs Road in Las Vegas is a palate’s delight.

Located in a “strip mall” about 10 minutes from McCarran airport, it is newly owned and operated by sisters Belle and Phatcharin. The restaurant gives you a feeling of warmth as you enter through the door.  It is very clean and inviting with a friendly staff—always aiming to please.  Expect your food in a timely manner.

Panang curry with chicken, a personal favorite, is always a flavorful and simply delicious!  The appetizers, and entrĂ©es are always well presented and the flavors are consistent, from visit to visit. Don’t forget to top off your meal with a tall glass of Thai iced tea—yummy!

Overall pricing is reasonable, and the weekday lunch specials are great if you want an even bigger bang for your buck!

I highly recommend you stop in and order up.  These young ladies have really succeeded in creating a great dining experience from hello to good-bye.
