Group of 3 of us went for dinner and it was very fresh and tasty. Veggies were perfectly cooked, everything very flavorful and spiced as we had requested. We ended up getting 4 dishes and doing family style, and we all enjoyed each dish- red curry, cashew pork, basil beef, and fried shrimp dish. Staff was kind and added to our enjoyment. We don’t live close by but we’ll be back!

Good, not great. The flavors were very authentic. I arrived late in the lunch rush and they were full but not slammed, always a good sign. I ordered the summer rolls at the recommendation of another review, they were a less flavorful version of the kind that appear in your local Vietnamese spot. Mostly lettuce and very little shrimp. I ordered the Pad Thai because that's what you do. It was like trying to eat a ball of glue. Again, tasted great, but so overcooked and clumped together I ate a little more than half before giving up.

The servers are friendly, but the food was not so good. The green curry was very watery, with very little curry flavor. It also had an odor which made me nauseous smelling it on my plate! The curry puffs were tasty, but overcooked (they do not look like the picture on the website-much smaller in reality); the spring rolls were overcooked. The summer rolls were very good! I agree with another review regarding the Pad Thai-it was OK, but in a lump of noodles. We decided to try a dish we had never had before, the Pad Ma Moung Him Na Pan; tasted like semi-pickled vegetables in a sauce with no flavor. All-in-all, the prices are comparable to Thai Café, but Thai Café has much better tasting food! I would not dine at this restaurant again.

Their Salad dressing and Red Curry are the best. I am a regular customer here

Good flavor but that is it. The portion was smaller than a frozen dinner and the server was rude and never once refilled our water.

WRAL reported a bottle of SCALP TREATMENT was found in a cabinet above food prep. Washing of hands and using clean gloves is also not mandatory for employees. They got an "A" upon reinspection, and that is supposed to make me feel better about eating at a restaurant? It is amazing how Americans think they are the cleanest people in the world and yet they can be so disgusting in both their personal and public hygiene. Mama did not raise these people right. This goes on with white CEOs in the bathrooms of high rise exec buildings and poor, underpaid Asian restaurant workers and just too many people of all creeds, races, income status. Yechh! Not as bad as Dickensian England or the disease-ridden, crippling street poverty today in the wealthy country of India, though. Now THAT is the ending of a negative review on a positive note!

Was looking for a food Thai place, unfortunately not Thai Lanna. Food was uninspired and lacked any effort. Apps seemed precooked rather than made when ordered. "Salad" was the bagged variety with some dressing.

Great place to get a lunch. The prices are reasonable and you get free salad with ginger or peanut dressing, with your meal. I would recommend the fried rice and the orange chicken.

If you haven't been to Thai Lanna, you must go! Very authentic Thai food that has a home cooked touch to it. Not the commercial kind. The lady that served us was very helpful and friendly and took interest in our preferences so she could make recommendations. We ordered the Larb (cold, tangy and spicy salad with ground chicken) and absolutely loved it. The most flavorful and mouthwatering salad ever! It is very similar to the Nam Sod. Other food we ordered include Green Curry with Shrimp (lip smacking), Pad Khee Mao with tofu, eggs and vegetables (delicious), Pad Kra Prao with Tofu (also delicious) and Pad Cha with Grouper (couldn't get enough). We initially ordered the Pad Pet Pla, but the lady recommended the Pad Cha instead. Happy we took her choice. This is my second visit and totally happy. Will visit again and will post pictures the next time.
