Great little out of the way place @ corner of Spruce & Chicago in Riverside. Ample parking for Lunch & Dinner. Small indoor dining room, but there are a few tables on the sidewalk just outside of the restaurant
Upon ordering you food comes very quick. The portions are very generious for the low cost. My very favorite
dish for one or two people is the (Pad Sophon) plus (House Special Deluxe fried rice). Those two dishes for two people will fill you up anytime.
Note: Now they opened a Second location in Moreno Valley. In a shopping center @
Corner of Perris just off I60 @ 25155 Sunnymead # G1B (951)242-1667. Same Ownership, Same Great Food & Service. Bigger dining area, not as busy as original location as yet. I'm a regular twice a week guest at there Moreno Valley location for eat in service, & I get take out Lunch once a week in Riverside near my work. When I place my order over the phone, it's ready in 15 minutes. It takes me only 5 minutes to leave my work pick up my food & return to my work. Better than any FAST FOOD ever.

I've been to Thai restaurants all over the world, including in Thailand, and Best Thai is very very good. Their curries are the best (try the Panang) although their noodle dishes are great too. Whipped cream on Thai tea is kind of strange, but I ordered it without the cream and it's just as delicious as anywhere else. The service is good. I don't see a problem with paying up at the register. You have to be extraordinarily lazy to care about something like that.

I love Best Thai! I've been a regular since they opened several years ago. My office is right across the street so it's a natural lunch spot and convenient dinner place (dine in or pick up) on the way home, especially since they stay open until 9 PM.
Carnivore or vegetarian, the food is consistently fresh, attractive and delicious...and they'll keep your water glass full! The prices are fair and reasonable, and the portions are good. I often have leftovers--and it still tasted great!
The restaurant is always neat and clean--and I've never seen anything but an ""A"" Publicl Health rating in their window. And to top it off, the service is good, even when packed to peak capacity. The staff greets you with a smile and is always polite and responsive. A favorite of international students from a nearby university, it's not unusual to find the place bustling even in the evenings when the rest of the complex is abandoned.
After a long, hard day, Best Thai's warm hospitality always helps take the edge off!

bad food, bad service. worst pad thai i've ever had, and i've had a lot of pad thai. our waiter had the audacity to make us get up and pay at the register even though most restaurants take care of that for you. they charge you extra if you use atm and cannot give correct change. their drink portions are ridiculously small and well the pad thai was horrible. how can a thai restaurant have bad pad thai? really now.

The best low-budget Thai restaurant in the Riverside area. The service is prompt and the waitstaff usually have a smile and friendly recommendations for the unititiated. The angel wings are a great appetizer that appears to be the rage at many thai restaurants in CA. Their Pad Thai is delicious as well as the curries of all flavors. The dining room is usually full so you may have a small wait on some nights but it is worth it! Be sure to take your cash and give them a try soon.

This really is the best Thai I have ever had. It is very authentic and delicious. There is a great variety of food, really good portion sizes (be prepared to go home with leftovers), and the prices can't be beat. They even have lunch specials where you get an entree, rice, soup, and an egg roll all for just under $7. They have an extensive selection of curries, noodles, soups, and appetizers.
I live nearby and have eaten here many times. I have never had anything that wasn't delicious (my favorite is the variety of curries). The service is also great - very courteous and fast. Whether you dine in or place an order for take-out, you never have to wait too long for your order.
Just to give you a heads up, they only accept cash. So be prepared for that. If you are stuck without it, there is an ATM nearby. But, it can be a pain.

I tried this place based on the reviews from other users and was not disappointed. The place is rather low key and located in a small strip center. I went there for lunch, on a rainy day, and was lucky to find a seat. This place is really poppin! The food pretty close to authentic and the service was great. Great place to go for great thai at a great price, but not a great first date place.

It is quite small but it's cozy, of course it wouldn't be good for large groups. The food there is excellent. I they have a variety of spicy foods which I always stay away from but I tried one of their spicy dishes and it wasn't that hot at all. It was sweet and delicious. I wasn't all that content with the service. They took forever to take our order they didn't even notice that we had been waiting there for quite a long time. You pretty much have to call to their attention. They're just not keeping an eye out. It is, however, very inexpensive. I was surprised and they serve you plenty, that you might have left overs. I thought it was a really good deal.

I have eaten at 50 Thai restaurants accross the world and can say this is a great restaurant. Located in a small strip mall and easy to miss, the dining experience is worthy.
I decided to find a good Thai restaurant so I searched Citysearch and came across the highly scored Best Thai Cusine. It turned out to be one I had great lunch at with clients.
The prices for dinner were extremely low. I told the owner she was leaving money on the table and asked her to consider at least a 10% increase. After eating there several times, I reassured her no one would desert her wonderful restaurant with such superior service and food quality.
The food and service are superior. The chicken and beef Panang are my favorites and very flavorful. The Tom Kha Gaa soup was wonderful as was the dessert, the Mango Sticky Rice.
