Saen Thai in Shawnee-on-Delaware is a quaint, charming Thai place tucked into an unassuming strip mall. Crispy whole fish, Drunken Noodles, Pad Thai, spring rolls, Goong Pahd Preow Wahn (sweet and sour shrimp), Kaow Pahd Kai (fried rice with chicken), or steamed dumplings made of shrimp, pork & mushrooms. It’s the best Thai in the Pocono Mountains.
Saen Thai can get crowded and the staff can get a bit overwhelmed. We recommend you know this going in, and just chill and enjoy some very good food – as of 2022, this is still the best Thai restaurant in the Pocono Mountains. Lunch specials are served from Tuesday through Sunday.
“This is a must visit place for out of town visitors looking for spicy food. And for the locals, you are missing out on a great place if you haven’t visited this place. Excellent Thai Food! Great host! Puts a new flavor to the term “yum”. Felt like family even with carry-out only option during COVID-19. Our second visit to this place. Ask for the extra spices in tiny cups (power and the tiny spice paste) if you want to have a extra zing to your taste. Wish this place was close to home. Whole family loves the taste of this little paradise. Pad Thai, Drunken Noodles, and “Pad See You” are our favorites! Thank you for the wonderful flavors!”
