    I'm no connoisseur, but I like Thai Flavors a lot.

    On the West side, we love ZuZap. Get their delivery about once a week. My fav is the spicy noodle with chicken.

    Re: Best Thai in Des Moines?

    Zuzap, Thai Flavors, and Cool Basil are all the same owners with roughly the same menu. I love all three, but Nut Pob on E14th and Indianola is probably the best I have had in town.

    I like cool basil a lot. The spicy edamame is really good.

    I used to love Thai Flavors, but then the service got slow (no problem with food) and it wasn't a viable lunch option anymore becasue I getting back late from lunch. In the same strip mall (corner of 14th and University) there's a place called Cafe Fuzion which offers Thai food so I tried it. I love it and the service is excellant and fast. I would have no problem recommending both places.

    I think King & I on 22nd St in WDM is better than Cool Basil, it's one of my favorite places.

    We love The Spice in Ames too, but feel Thai Kitchen in Ames is better Thai food at a better price.

    The Spice is still a much better place for a date or romantic dinner though.

    Re: Best Thai in Des Moines?

    I've only had the King and I so I cant compare it to anywhere else, but its delicious.
    If somewhere is better, it cant be by much. I always get the Spicy Noodle Basil with chicken. And an order of Crab Rangoon. Ive never been disappointed.

    For some reason I have never been there.
