We will definitely return! Charming interior and really amazing specialty foods on the back page. The lamb chops are beautiful and perfectly done. The Thai standards like Pad Thai are solid.

The portion was good, and although it did take some time to have our meals ready, it’s worth waiting. Also an indication of good online sales or orders by phone calls. I ordered fried rice, which was well seasoned, not too salty nor sweet, the type of flavor for sure accepted from the point of view of an Asian. A good nostalgia when you are away from home! A must try!!

I had a wonderful experience at Thai Star Restaurant last lunch. The food was delicious, the service was excellent, and the prices were reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for authentic Thai food in Durham. I especially enjoyed the drunken noodle and the massaman curry. The drunken noodle was perfectly balanced between sweet, sour, and spicy, and the massaman curry was rich and creamy with a hint of heat. My server was friendly and attentive, and she made sure that we had everything we needed.

The food was delicious, the portions were consistent with the price, and the food was ready for pickup when promised. My order consisted of masaman curry and spring rolls. Both were exactly as expected and had just the right amount of spice. Highly recommend!

This placed used to be one of the cheapest place serving delicious Thai food. But now on my recent visit I realized it full to be running on little expensive side. The food is good here but the ambience is just above average.

My husband and I visited Thai Star for the first time today and we will be sure to return soon. This is why... The restaurant was very clean and laid out nicely with plenty of space between the tables. We were greeted as soon as we entered by a young lady with the sweetest smile. The service was excellent from the beginning of our visit until we left to go home. The single occupancy ladies room was clean, well-stocked, and had a changing table for the little ones. They even had a mouthwash dispenser in there. The menu was full of tempting choices. For our meal, I had Massaman (mild curry) with Tofu and my husband had Pad Thai with Tofu. Both were plated beautifully and were equally delicious. Thai Star is a 40-minute drive from our home but it was worth the trip.

First time trying this place and it was great! Very inconspicuous from the outside but as soon as you step foot inside, it’s a pleasant surprise. Good vibes and relaxing ambiance. The staff was also very friendly and the food hot and delicious. I got the drunken noodles with vegetables and Thai tea. With a 3 spice level out of 5 it was plenty spicy. There’s plenty of tables plus a bar with beer and wine. This is one of the best Thai restaurants I’ve tried and I’ll definitely be returning.

Best drunken noodles I’ve had! I came here around 6pm on a Sunday and the place was pretty empty. I placed an order for takeout and my food was ready in 15 mins. Staff was friendly as well. I also got an iced Thai tea and it was delicious. I definitely want to come back and actually sit down to dine.

Perfect food - I loved the drunken noodles. Perfect service - our waitress was happy to serve us. The interior was modern and clean. I loved the fun table cloths. It would be fun to hear some traditional Thai music added to the playlist. Also it may increase the feeling of hospitality if the hostess table were directly in front of the doors when you walk in. Thank you for serving us and I wish your fine restaurant all the best.

We have been looking for a go-to Thai place near us and this one is the best so far! Loved the Thai basil, panang curry, papaya salad, and drunken noodles. The medium spice was awesome…not at all bland like some others we have tried. The pad Thai was just okay. Will definitely be returning.

Their basil fried rice and Thai fish cakes are the best. Definitely going back for these. Tom yum soup was not that bad. But not so good as well. Didn’t like the clear noodles that much. They can just remove that ginger salad from the menu. That’s trash
