Wanting to try a new restaurant and craving Thai food ultimately led us to Pad Thai. Located on busy Guess Road, we had passed this restaurant many times but never realized until last night. We called our order in and it was ready waiting for us by the time we arrived 10 mins later. The young woman who waited on us was socially distant but very pleasant. I could see her smiling under her mask. We got our food home and were pleasantly surprised. There was so much food for two appetizers and two entrees. THE FOOD IS DELICIOUS. Everything was so distinctively flavorful. Even the fried tofu! I knew Pad Thai is making it on our rotation when my partner said “let’s get this again tomorrow night”. That is possibly the best compliment for a restaurant.

Tasty authentic food. Be aware there is still no dine-in... pick-up only. The owners have been unable to get Google to let them update their profile.

Wise people who held back on premature reopening. Still 100% takeout. Literally not made until ordered. Generous helpings, although honestly not as refined as before. But with increasing food prices and more than 16 months of pandemic disruption, the food is honest and made with care

On our most recent visit this Valentines day 2022 we experience great service. There was heavier than usual orders and we still received our food in a timely manner.

Got the pad Thai, red curry, and fresh rolls. Very tasty but a bit too spicy. Didn't get as much rice as expected for the curry.

High quality Thai food, with friendly service. We've been happy with the quality of the food and the promptness with which it's prepared. Spice level requested has been accurate. I like very spicy and my wife not so much, but that's not been an issue when you are clear when ordering. I usually don't call ahead and place my order in the restaurant and it's ready in less than 10 minutes. I ask to learn some Thai each time I visit and they love it. Durham, as a food city renowned all across the country, thrives off places like this! Tuck in!

My ToGo pad thai place for tasty pad thai. I also recommend their coconut soup for a hot soup that is very creamy with coconut milk and big chunks of mushrooms, onions, etc

We good fairly frequently and find their food to be very good. Of course now we can only do takeout and still the food is as good as ever. They package the food very well and are always so polite and accommodating. Great food from a small restaurant.

Good place for takeout Thai. I recommend the Massaman curry and the drunken noodles.

Found this place recently when I was craving some pad Thai. It hits the spot! And the portion is huge, I ate off of mine for at least a day or two after. The staff has been very friendly the few times I’ve been here as well.

Ordered togo during COVID19 and the food was quick, hot, large portions and delicious! We got the Pad Thai (with extra sauce) and will do the same next time! It is absolutely the best Pad Thai in the area and the closest we can get to Thailand right now. So glad we have Pad Thai Pad Thai to look forward to!

Best Pad Thai EVA! Thai spicy is super spicy, but the medium is just right for me! Have been getting take out weekly and each dinner order lasts for at least 2 meals for two of us!

I ordered Kang Massaman Curry with extra veggies. It was delicious! An ample portion served quickly with very attentive service, and just the right level of heat. Ordered Drunken Noodles the next night with veggies and shrimp. Again, it was great. So was the service. Simple, casual atmosphere. Authentic Thai. And they seem to have a thriving carry out busines as well. Across the street from The Holiday Inn! Update! One more meal here, at lunch time. 9 tables. Service was a LITTLE slow. One waitress who is also cashiering. They give complimentary soup at lunch. Lunch specials are all $7.95. I got the Pad Thai with chicken and veggies. Was not spicy at all. So ask for heat if you want it. I have had better Pad Thai. Theirs was kind of soupy/runny; I didn't like the texture. (Their curry is great!)

Very nice staff. More than 3-4 tables, there may be some patience needed. I would not get what I ordered again, fried fish filet and a house salad. I would try this place one more time only because they seem like nice people and deserve a second chance. Take a look at my fried fish filet and you decide if it looks good to you. Hope you have a good experience.

Sa Wat Dee Krahp! Consistently good every time we go. Comfortable dining area where the owner checks on guests regularly. Family owned/operated with pride.

Pretty good Thai food! Nice waiter too! Ask them to bring out the spice jars, the wet spice was my favorite.

My mother is from Thailand, and this was a delicious reminder of her. Authentic, traditional, and made with love. A must try if you've never had Thai food before. Once you have, I promise you'll be back for more!

We have eaten Thai food in TN, DC, NC, VA and even Poland, and this was probably the best we have ever had. Will be returning!

The restaurant is large, and the service was quick and good. Unfortunately, my partner and I didn't particularly like what we ordered. We're huge Thai food fans. I think I would try again and see if we can find something on the menu that they do really well (sometimes it's just knowing the restaurant better). There is a lot of parking and a nice amount of space in the restaurant so that's nice!

What a great find. We were just passing through and found the good reviews and decided to try it out. Great food, great service and great prices. The pad thai and curry were delicious. We strongly recommend trying out this place if you happen to be in the neighborhood.

Pad Thai... What can I say, the food is awesome, the staff are just as awesome, and they can make the food hotter than I want to eat it, but ask, more than once, before they do. Lots of vegetarian options, for lunch, tell your server that you are a vegetarian so they will give you the veggie soup (pro tip). My girlfriend's first Thai experience happened here (that just sounds bad... ) And she is also a huge fan, as are her kids. I cannot recommend enough, just be aware of their hours.

This place is great. Definitely get the papaya salad 3 star spicy. Portions are large and food tastes good. Got the Pad Thai and drunken noodle as well as fried rice and all were enjoyable.

The food was fresh, hot and delicious! We had the pad thai with chicken, tum yum soup and fresh spring rolls. The young lady who waited on me was very pleasant and efficient. Highly recommend!
