Go! Sy Thai-Detroit : Family Friendly Thai Food

Go Sy Thai-Detroit is one of the best Thai restaurants in Metro Detroit. With two locations in Detroit, Go Sy Thai is a convenient restaurant for many of your downtown Detroit family activities.

Our go to place when spending time at the Detroit Institute of Arts, the shops in Midtown, and other activities around the Wayne State campus is the Go Sy Thai midtown location at 4240 Cass.

The food is amazing and reasonably priced, but the decor and service are just "okay." The interior is very much like any modern small cafe-cramped seating, with the counter morphing into the seating area. It is redeemed by being mostly windows which allow for natural light to flow in. And the cool Thai movie posters on the back wall.  The service is okay- seemingly mostly Wayne State and College for Creative Studies students, neither particularly friendly, nor surly-just perfunctory.

But the food at Sy Thai is wonderful- neither too saucy or sticky, each dish we have eaten there has been enjoyable. The mild is perfect for our taste buds-a bit of zip, but never overpowering. We usually split several dishes and add an a la carte item such as a Veggie Roll or Tom Yum soup and are always satisfied-this cuts down on the calories and the cost!

Be sure to try to time your stop at Sy Thai Detroit to avoid the lunch rush. We don't mind eating at 11 am or having a granola bar in the morning or stopping there after 1pm for lunch. The times we have been stuck in the lunch rush, we have waited over 20 minutes for our meal, which is a bit much when you are crammed next to other diners. 

Still, Go SY THAI Detroit in midtown continues to be a satisfying lunch destination when our family is in midtown. Hope you enjoy too!
