Eddie’s Thai is an unpretentious small restaurant in a shopping mall in Cooper City. There are a few chairs outside the door. During the weekends at dinner times there is a waiting line to eat at the restaurant, so Eddie put chairs outside the door for people to sit. When you go in, usually, either Eddie or his wife Roberta greet you. The restaurant was full except for two tables. When the waiter comes my friends and I ordered Spring Rolls as an appetizer. They come in a pair cut into four pieces and were delicious, crispy on the outside and the crunchy vegetables in the inside. The dipping sauce made out of pineapple and peaches was not overly sweet which made it a nice compliment to the rolls. My friends I ordered 3 dishes. The Vegetable Thai Red Curry with no fish sauce, Ga-Pao Noodles with no fish sauce and the Eggplant with the Red Garlic sauce as recommended by our server. The server came with a pot of white rice and he served the rice on our plates.

The Thai Red Curry is a creamy light pink, almost white sauce, made out of coconut milk and red curry paste. The sauce is so tasty and the vegetables are fresh and crispy. It was served on deep dish because the vegetables are basically “taking a bath on the sauce”. As expected, it was delicious. The sauce is so abundant that you can eat this as a soup without the rice! We also had the Ga-Pao Noodles, which my friend and her husband loved! This is made with rice noodles and vegetables sautéed in chili paste. Noodles were soft and brownish with crispy vegetables, sweet and savory. In addition, we ordered the Eggplant with a Red Garlic Sauce. It was the first time I tried this dish. OMG, it was good. The eggplant came in a rectangular shape with a lot of the red garlic sauce on top. It was sliced and it was crispy on the outside and soft inside. Very tasty and we couldn’t have enough of the sauce. It tasted similar to marinara sauce with a lot more garlic, sweet and a little spice. We had so much to eat and still had to take out. Food was amazing. I like that at Eddie’s food is made to order and if you ask to not put the fish sauce, they will do that. I will recommend Eddie’s Thai Restaurant if you want to have authentic, delicious and best tasting Thai food in South Florida.

As I opened the door I could hear Summer Nights from the Grease soundtrack playing softly on the speakers of this dimly-lit intimate casual Thai spot. A thin energetic man welcomes us, asks how many are in our party and invites us to sit anywhere in the restaurant. We chose a booth in the back and he brings us water for the table, and gives my son a fist bump and tells him to call him Uncle Eddie. I order the Whole Red Snapper with Thai red curry sauce and my friend V orders the Chicken Pad Thai. Our entrees come out within 15 minutes. The snapper is huge, crispy on the outside and perfectly fried. The secret sauce on top makes the dish. The marriage of red pepper, coriander and cumin seed mixed with garlic, lime and lemongrass are finger licking good. My friend’s chicken Pad Thai was good but the snapper stole the show. Thai donuts followed the entrée and are warm, soft and delicious- a perfect ending to a great meal. Eddie’s Thai… an experience not only a meal. Lunch and a show from Eddie, you can’t get better bang for your buck.

Eddie’s will be familiar to residents in North Dade and South Broward as an accessible, reliable slinger of pad Thai and spring rolls. You can elect to keep it classic and not be disappointed. The pad Thai, bright with basil and spice, is unctuous and filling. A few bits of chicken satay or shrimp in blankets into the night (can I put this peanut sauce on everything?) and you’re glad you came. Once the kids have settled into their iPads, you’d do well to turn to the more complex kick of the tom yum, which brims with scallops, squid, fish, and lemongrass. Nothing’s overcooked. A generous fillet of salmon swims happily in the green curry, which is aromatic and perfect with cold beer. Feel like sushi? The rolls are enormous and creative, each one drawing all eyes in the cozy dining room as it sashays to its destination. All the while, the service is accommodating and warm. A warm and accommodating spot for families, especially if mom and dad like a little kick in their dishes. The seafood is fresh and the portions generous. Kids will not be out of place.
