Great place for Lunch as the prices are competitive. Coconut cake is a step above divine (see creamy rich). There are more authentic options for Thai food in Durham but this is the best Thai lunch or family dinner option. The Thai basil stir fry plates are a personal favorite. Try the spicy chicken salad if you enjoy a little kick in the mouth-see delicious chilies. Atmosphere is warm and especially nice during the evening hours.

This place is always busy and the food is very good. Lunch prices are reasonable, but dinner prices are not. Amazing staff! They are able to accommodate most requests. Try the creme brulee!

BBQ chicken, fried rice and sweet and sour was amazing. Chicken was smokey flavored and fall of the bone tender. Can't wait to try other options.

A solid choice for Thai food if you are new to it. The food is prepared well and does not tend to be overly spicy. Staff are very nice.

Our favorite local Thai place! Wait can be long for takeout as it gets more popular, but it’s worth the wait!

I can’t believe I’ve lived in Durham for 20 years and never tried this place. Shame on me! Great atmosphere and even better food. Crab fried rice, Panang Curry Chicken. If you had just two dishes to take to a deserted island these might be it. That panang sauce? Might be the single best Thai flavor I’ve tasted in 20 years. It comes on the dumplings appetizer too! We sat at the bar. I highly recommend that. Talk with Tom the bartender. Smile and wish you had friends as awesome as him. A wealth of history and conversation, he’ll have you laughing. Mixes great drinks too. Will add more soon because I am going back. Every week that I can. You should too. 5+ stars.
