More than one option was very bland.
I'm confused that someone would sell food without seasoning, but my vegan friend loves their pad c u

Not impressed

I've been there twice, they do tell you what's vegan, but it's not much, and you don't get the same amount of food or sauce as your non-vegan friends. I even had the person taking my order tell me something wouldn't be good if it was vegan.
Alloy Thai is where it's at if you have to be in Boulder. Busaba in Louisville is better than both ;)

Very vegan friendly!

My daughter loves Thai, so we decided to give it a try. The menu very clearly indicates which dishes have fish sauce etc. Also the waitress was excellent and advised us which dishes would be better. The fresh spring rolls with tofu were amazing. The red curry was fair. The fried rice (Khow Pad Basil) was excellent. Very casual.

Pros: very vegan friendly, excellent food

Cons: not vegan....

Fish oil?

As a vegan, I've enjoyed this restaurant for many years. But the other day I called to place a to go order for the green curry, massaman curry, and red curry. I was told that these cannot. E made vegan, as they are made with fish oil. She went on to say that the only item she would suggest is the yellow curry, as it is the only one she can be sure is free of fish oil. I was really shocked, as I mention that I'm vegan every time I've come in for years, and this has never been mentioned. Is this a mistake, or have they been serving fish oil to vegans?

By the way, if you decide to go, check the ingredients before you use the hot sauce. When I went, it contained fish oil and the staff will not warn you about this.

Pros: Tastes good

Cons: May contain fish oil

Best Thai in Boulder

While it's far from a vegan or even vegetarian restaurants, Khow Thai has at least a dozen vegan options. Most of their stir-fry and rice/noodle dishes are vegan if ordered with tofu (which they do really well!), and I havent tried the curry but I think it is as well. The waitstaff is all really pleasant and accommodating. Khow Pad Basil with tofu is my personal favorite.

Pros: Price, Tofu done right, Big portions

Cons: Not fully vegetarian, can get crowded at lunch/dinner rush
