So good! Pad Thai was amazing! Will definitely try again, but beware of spice!! We ordered for delivery and they asked 0-10 on spice scale, my husband chose a 3 and it was so spicy we could barely eat it!!

Visited Thai Flavors for the first time on Saturday for a friend's birthday gathering. They were busy but not overwhelmed with people, which made it the perfect spot for our get together. I enjoyed a very tasty mocktail which I would recommend if I could remember the name (there are only two on the menu and the one I had was rimmed with Tajín!). Others at the table with alcoholic mixed drinks were not as lucky, with extremely strong and poor tasting drinks. The menu is extensive - including thai, chinese, curry, and sushi. For an appetizer we ordered crab rangoon (pretty standard but still delicious) and spicy edamame. They offer spice on the edamame 1-6, we ordered a 1-Spice and 2-Spice - neither which we thought were very spicy. I ordered a Godzilla (sushi) Roll for my entree. The roll size was huge and personally I would of preferred a smaller roll to even the proportions of rice to other ingredients. But I think the taste was fine. My friend's recommended the Surf-n-Turf Roll so the table ordered several. Unfortunately they were out of steak for the "turf" and offered to substitute with shrimp, making it a Surf-n-Surf roll. Our waitress was very nice and accommodating. They let us bring in a cake. I am not ready to count them out yet, as I think the foundation is there. Would like to give them another try soon.

First time checking this place out. I advise dining in. You just can't pick off the menu if you haven't been there before. They're also very pricey. Bottom line it was so so.

Service was ok. Two of our dishes (seafood kaphrao and pad see ew) had very little flavor. Appetizer and other two entrees were good. They did offer to replace one dish. We eat quite a lot of Thai food and this was mediocre at best.

Service is great and the food is decent. I ordered the Tom kha gai, drunken noodles and papaya salad. All of them were good. Ambience is really good. A good date night spot. They were playing a lot of Alina Baraz which I appreciated. Felt like a modern American Thai restaurant.

Went to get some curry. It was average. A little heavy on the fish sauce, which is expected, but not desired. The rice portion is a little light so I got some extra. Wish they had Kao Soi (Northern Thai Curry Noodles), but the menu was long and filled with non-Thai items like sushi and Chinese dishes. The decor is above average and the music is American. I wanted to love it but I wasn't blown away, it was just OK.

Love this place. If I could eat here everyday I would. They have some of the best Thai dishes in town. Staff is friendly. Have been there so many times starting to know people by name!

Everytime I order Pineapple Delight to go they ALWAYS forget my cashews. WHY?!! This time not only did they forget my cashews my crab Rangoon was cold as if it had been sitting under a heat lamp or was just premade waiting on someone to order…just I pulled the lucky card…or am I?!

Very tasty. I got the drunken noodles with crispy tofu and no eggs. I liked the interior, and it was pretty busy over the lunch period, so you could tell it's a popular spot amongst the locals. I want to go back to try more items from the menu. They have lots of options that can be made vegan. Definitely recommend!

It was a long time since we had visited Thai Flavors. One of our favorite restaurants in Des Moines. We had started going to Cool Basil and had tried their similar dishes. We can definitively notice a different seasoning comin out of Thai Flavors. A difference my wife and I like.

I love the atmosphere of this place, the food is amazing. The reason I rate this place five stars is because of a server named Michael. He has been there on a few different occasions when my boyfriend and I go to eat dinner. He is an amazing server! Not only has he been right on the nose with our orders but he is extremely personable and super funny! I hope we continue to bump into Michael when we go eat at Thai Flavors.


My husband and I frequent this place, the food is delicious, however the prices have recently went up and I found myself being charged over $50 for two soups! That's just crazy.! Never again. Looking for a new restaurant...

Very delicious food. Fresh ingredients served in generous portions. Friendly staff and clean establishment. We are visiting from Texas and are sad to leave this little gem behind. Highly recommend trying this place out!

Great takeout! Drunken noodles with chicken have the perfect balance of spice and flavor. Good portions as well! The fried rice is classic
