It is a local, non-franchised restaurant that has been around for four years.
Thai T serves various Thai dishes with vegetarian options to accommodate to all taste buds. If vegetarianism
isn’t your thing, you also have the choice of making these exotic dishes spicy.
I brought my appetite and ordered my usual favorite, Broccoli with Oyster Sauce, with added shrimp and tofu.
My date ordered the spicy Pad Thai Noodle with beef.
Both plates were on the lunch special and included steamed rice, salad, and soup.
The crisp, green salad with special house dressing was out first and our hot meals followed shortly.
The plates are generously portioned and totally yummy.
My dish was sweet and spicy and the shrimp and tofu were savory, juicy, and full of flavor.
Besides the authentic tastes of traditional Thai food, Thai T also sells their signature Thai Tea beverage with
Boba (Tapioca) option, a delicious sweet treat to wash down those sweet and spicy flavors of your meal.
The food and drinks are not the only thing that keep me coming back for more; the service is excellent.
You are courteously greeted the minute you walk through the doors and you are seated immediately.
I almost always get the same server, Itunn or P.J.– how he likes to be referred to as–who knows exactly how I order my food each visit.
The love of Thailand does not stop at the entrance.
You are mentally transported to Thailand through the brief description of the Thai culture on the front page of the menu.
Each menu states facts of Thailand including geographical location, climate, language, and the five fundamental tastes of the Thai cuisine: sweet, spicy, sour, bitter, and salty.
Not only does the restaurant connect itself to its roots in Thai culture, but its modern decor and dim lighting gave this casual dine-in restaurant an intimate feel that young adults can not resist
The restaurant is open daily from 11 a.m to 10 p.m., offering lunch and dinner specials that keep their loyal customers, including myself, coming back for more.
The total cost for this authentic Thai meal was $28 and change; this does not include tip.
It was money well spent, in my opinion, to try the wonderfully savory Thai cuisine that will leave your taste buds highly satisfied and your belly full.
To try Thai T yourself, visit their location in Fontana at 11275 Sierra Ave, conveniently located just a couple miles below the 10 Freeway at the Sierra exit neighboring the local Stater Bros.
