Massaman Curry is great

Service attentive, curry spice just right, salad fresh and tasty. Went on a Wednesday afternoon and it was quite crowded

Cha da Thai is easily the best restaurant in Boone. The lunch specials are by far the best value around; only $6 for a perfect portion of 5 star quality food that comes with a soup or salad, and the service is very fast, even when they are busy. I took a friend there for lunch once and we got... More

I get a migraine from eating MSG so I asked them to not put it in my food. The food tasted like MSG and I immediately started getting a headache as I was eating. The food tastes good but if you're sensitive to MSG I would recommend avoiding them.

My husband and I ate in here for dinner while visiting Boone, and loved it. The decor is very cute and friendly. The staff was great. The food was full of flavor and reasonably priced. We will be back!

A group of five of us tried the lunch. We tried different lunch specials. The salad was too spicy for everyone at the table and nearly everyone left their salad. The soup was quite tasty. Massaman curry (very good), panang curry (very watery and fairly good), sesame chicken (looked good but chicken chunks were so big and we had no... More

We arrived at the restaurant (6 of us) to eat prior to seeing a play at App State. We arrived 65 minutes prior to needing to leave and informed the restaurant of that. The restaurant was not at all full when we arrived. This would typically be enough time to order and eat in 99.999% of thai restaurants with no... More

We love Thai food and this one was OK. We had Masaman Chicken curry which needed to have more flavor, and I had the Tom Yum soup which was too sweet. The service was good and reasonably fast.

This place is ok if you are not that into Thai food. But if you are a Thai food lover then better try elsewhere. We had several curries, but all very blend, the flavor hadn't gotten into the meat and vegetables. The Tom Yam soup was overly sweet, so couldn't even finish it.

Went out with a few of my girlfriends there for lunch and had a wonderful time. The place and people are nice and the food was great! After leaving, we were already talking about when we should get together and do that again.

We were visiting Boone on vacation, and this family-owned restaurant was recommended to us. Ever since my favorite local Thai place closed, I have been craving good, authentic panang. I found it here. And it was SO. GOOD. There are no frills here. I ordered panang, and I got panang and a side of rice. No appetizer salad, nothing on... More
