My wife and I have been coming here for about 3-4 years, both for lunch and dinner, and each time we are greatly impressed by the food. If the River Thai restaurant was not in downtown South River, but in a suburban shopping center, it...More

I've been to River Thai several times for solo lunch and with business partners. They consistently provide great quality Thai food with the right amount of fish sauce, veggies, and spice. Definitely worth trying for lunch or dinner.

Food was okay but not amazing. The spring rolls were delicious. The noodles did not taste cooked enough. People there are very friendly. I would not recommend this restaurant though.

Reading the reviews and being from out of town we were happy to find this place. We did take out maybe that was the problem. Requested spicy but nothing was spicy. The veggies were boring and the food was just okay, we won't be back.
