Thai Drift Swift – Lehi, UT (Review)

I’ll start off by saying that I just found my new favorite Thai restaurant (subject to change per the whims of my discerning pallet)!

My experience is related strictly to the green curry- that’s all I’ve eaten so far (well, I did nibble some excellent tamarind chicken). Great flavor- very strong with a good spice level (I have had some very bad green curry experiences). The best part is that you can mix our curry choice with whatever meat and vegetables you’d like. In effect you can make unlimited combinations. Although the meats and extras aren’t cooked in the actual curry you’d never know as everything tastes full and rich (they are probably cook/ steam the extras in curry broth- is that a thing?). I really liked the rice too- long grain, cooked properly and it seemed to hold the curry juice really well.

Another major benefit for me is that you get your food much quicker than at a sit down restaurant. Some of the servers move in slow motion but it’s never taken more than 10 minutes to my meal.

Info: Curry types include Masaman, Green, Yellow or Red. Meats offered are chicken, beef, pork and shrimp. Select from vegetables like broccoli, bell peppers, snap peas, potatoes, pumpkin, etc.

Prices: You can select from a half or full size curry meal. Prices are lower than / in line with other Thai restaurants (around $9)

Location: They have three locations but I have only been to the one in Lehi (in between 7-eleven and Subway by the Thanksgiving Point area). Not an easy spot to get to during the lunch rush (go around from the back). Sort of a hole-in-wall feel. Around peak hours things get crowded but the tables seem to rotate out quickly.

Final verdict: 8/10

  1. Thai Drift Swift is really good. I like the original one in Lindon better but the Swift is still really good and very very quick. It’s our go to Thai place for carry out. Also I’ve liked Sabaidee Thai http://sabaideethaicuisine.com over on Lehi main street.
