Topping the list is Sikhay Thai Lao Cuisine. The Thai and Laotian spot is the highest rated Thai restaurant in Fort Worth, boasting 4.5 stars out of 226 reviews on Yelp.

You can also get pho and curry dishes.

Yelp user Janice D. reviewed the restaurant on July 8. She wrote, "Food was amazing, service was exceptional and the restaurant looked super clean. Papaya salad is oftentimes made too fishy or too limey, but theirs was a perfect balance of flavors that didn't have any one ingredient overwhelming the dish."

Everything -- the egg rolls, the glass noodle salad, pad woon sen, tom kha soup, the green and panang curry (it's loaded with vegetables and they never skimp on the rice) -- is super flavorful!"

All were tasty and fresh. The rice was cooked perfectly, not mushy like a lot of places. You can customize your spice level."
