best fried calamari I've ever eaten:) – I really like this place altough I'm not a big fan of Asian cuisine...nevertheless, I like Morningside Thai a lot specially because of it's super friendly atmosphere, very nice staff, nicely decorated interior and most important - fried calamari!! I hate when calamari have to much breadcrumbs and here the amount is just perfect...just a touch with great spices! Very unique...
My family loved all the dishes they ate and they tried a lot.
Thai served well – Good food found on Morningside. Satay very nice. Plenty of choices for entrees. We really liked the no cork fee.
Eat at your own risk – I didn't plan on giving reviews on citysearch, but when I saw someone give Morningside a recent 5 star review, I had to say join and say something. This place has gone so far down hill. The building is not safe. I wouldn't be surprised if it is going to be condemned before long. Someone could fall through the floor. The food was really not good. If they can't repair the basics, what corners are they cutting in the kitchen? I have been a few times over the past years, and it used to be a very nice place with really tasty food. It is too far gone now.
One of the best Thai restaurant. – We tried this restaurant based on friends recommendation. It's really worth the drive to get there.
A small and really friendly place. The food is authentic thai with great services. We will go back again and again. Padthai is one of the best.
So sad – We had been going to this restaurant for ... 10 years ... until our last visit, which will be our very last. I am quite sure my husband is a previous 5-star review (he has also given up on this place and agrees with my 1 star review). It used to be such a neat little place, with wonderful food and very comfortable for family dining or staying out late chatting with friends. But the quality has gone down so much. The building is falling apart, its hard to even walks across the floor for fear of it breaking. I am surprised its passed inspections. The food kept us coming back even with the building decline, but no more. It is so awful now. The spicy is bland, the food tastes old. The flavor isn't there. The final straw was I ordered Pad Thai and when it came the lime had been squeezed...several times. It was dry and mashed beyond belief. I am quite sure it wasnt on my dish either. You can tell they are fighting to stay afloat, no liquor license, building falling apart and now cutting corners with the food and perhaps reusing food items. Now we are on a hunt for a good Thai place, sorry Morningside, we will miss the good old days.
Worst Thai in Houston – I have been here twice and have been disappointed both times. They do not season the food. I ordered chicken pad thai and was given oily noodles and chicken with no seasoning. Recently, I ordered a dish to-go and they had not even made it! I had to wait twenty minutes past when they said it would be ready. It normally wouldn't be a big deal, but when you have an hour for lunch it makes a difference.
Great, quiet, neighborhood place – My husband and I discovered this place pretty recently. The food was fantastic and the service was great. The retaurant itself is small and very quiet, but I love that it never gets very crowded. The best part about it is that it is BYOB!
Longtime Thai restaurant in a converted cottage in Rice Village for relaxed, family-friendly dining. – In Short
A mix of area regulars and hungry Rice students enjoy the authentic and affordable Thai fare at this family-owned gem. Ornate Thai fabrics, wall hangings, photos of Thai royalty and traditional statuary decorate the main dining room. The menu is varied and includes a combination tray appetizer for a taste of everything, fried rice, various curries, charbroiled royal beef, Thai ginger, noodles and house special seafood dishes. All entrees can be made vegetarian and spiced mild, medium or hot.
Great Neighborhood Place – I can't believe we have lived so close all these years and never ate there. It is now our favorite, easy in and out reastaurent to head to after work. All the appetizers are great, and one can make a meal just loading up on them. The red pepper curry sauces are excellent. However, we did find that the entree portions are not as generous as other restaurants in this genre. The restaurant has a strong neighborhood following and provides take out.
Very Good! – Great Food- very fresh meats and vegetables, friendly staff, clean, quite atmosphere. Bery relaxing and enjoyble food.
