    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.

    I agree.

    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.
