"ALL" That is impressive. I thought I liked Thai food.

I have had good meals at Thai Place in Fox Chapel and on Walnut St., but I felt the place in Verona and Green Mango are better. Not by a lot and I would eat at any of them.

I used to be at the Thai place in Verona all the time, because I was taking Muay Thai classes there. It was pretty good back then as well, but I think Nikki's is even better.

Yep, nothing in East Lib.. yet.
Personal favorites are:
Pusadee's Garden, (Upper Lawrenceville)
Nikki's Northside
Smiling Banana Leaf (Highland Park)
Thai Gourmet (Bloomfield), I think it's much better than Thai Cuisine.

Lulu's has been consistently bad every time I've gone, so I'd stick with Spice Island for good noodle dishes in Oakland.

I've never had bad food at Lulu's, but it's not a dining experience. It's a college joint.

I've also never had bad food at Lulu's, but their service has been very inconsistent.

Same here. It's a place I'll go to if someone else wants to, or if it's a group in which people don't want to spend a lot.

Unlike most of you, I didn't care for Green Mango, where I was served such a bad piece of salmon, I could smell it when the waiter put it down in front of me. Hard to believe whoever cooked it didn't smell the nasty as he was putting it in the pan. I didn't even take a bite. The waiter could smell the badness just as well as I could.

He brought me another dish, but I had to wait while my friend ate his dinner. I never went back.

The Thai place in Verona is nikki's. They have 2 locations.
