Talk about a transformation! Knox-born Ka Thai has a new location, still on McKinney but now in Uptown, and it is BEAUTIFUL!
Updated February 2022
While we couldn’t find too much about the background of Ka Thai, it was opened by a Thai woman back in the summer of 2018 in Knox. It was a hidden gem, that we instantly fell in love with, ordering for takeout at least once a week.
THE NEW SPACE
And now, Ka Thai has moved several blocks up McKinney Avenue, to Uptown! Find it next to Blue Sake Sushi at 3220 McKinney. If you knew the Knox Ka Thai location, you’ll be blown away! It’s a complete transformation, with a space about 3-4x the size, plus they went all out with the decor.
Think boho Tulum vibes with hanging basket lights, lots of plants and flowers thanks to Twelve Thirty Four Flowers, plant murals and an airy light but upscale feel. It’s really well done!
To start, we always go for the Ka Thai Sampler, where you can choose 3 of their starters, for $14! For an entree, we love all of the noodles and can never decide on a favorite between the Pad Thai, Pad Woon Sen (glass noodles or Pad Kee Maw (drunken noodles).
(PS if you’re ever sick or want a cozy soup, we always order the Kiew Nahm dumpling chicken broth soup for delivery.)
DRINKS + HAPPY HOUR
The new location also has an extended bar and lounge, and coming soon, a patio! There’s 5 signature cocktails, all with a Thai twist to them like a Ranch Water with Kaffir Lime and green papaya. And bonus, you can stop by from 3-6pm DAILY for 50% off glasses of wine, $6 select cocktails, $3-$6 small plates, and $3-$4 beer and sake.
So if you love Thai food like us, check out Ka Thai, and also mark it down for your next date night or ladies night! The atmosphere is premium now!
