Delicious Pad Thai!

We tried this place on a whim last night and it did not disappoint! The pad thai with chicken was absolutely wonderful! We also tried the green curry, which was tasty, but the pad thai was definitely the star! Highly recommend for thai in Chapel Hill!

Some good some not so. One thing that was good was the servers, they are super nice and quick. Good came out almost to fast. We had Tom Kar Gai soup which was not good. Really salty and boring. By far way down on the tasty list of ok coconut soups which we always get at Thai restaurants. The spring... More

Very good Thai. Have had take out several times, and it is always very good. Love the curries. Tofu is great. Decent prices.

I stopped by Thai Palace only because it was on my way home from work and I really, really wanted pad thai. I ordered to-go and my food was ready in about 10-15 minutes. The appetizers, curry puffs and summer rolls, were so delicious. I would come back for those alone, and my husband agrees. The pad thai was also... More

To begin with, if your meal is not to your liking, be sure to let your waiter know. A review after the fact will not help you get what you want. I'd suggest even letting the staff know ahead of time that you are looking for a more authentic Thai experience. That said, our meal was very good! We waited... More

We must have also even there on an off day because this was the worse meal we have had in a long time. We ordered chicken sates that were produced to fast that they must have been already made -- the chicken was dry and the peanut sauce was floury. We ordered steamed dumplings that tasted gamey, and the padthai... More

Perhaps we were there on an off day, but we found our meal almost inedible. We ate here for lunch and ordered appetizer and soup, plus one main dish. The restaurant was empty except for us, so perhaps the kitchen was not firing on all cylinders. We found our food over cooked and poorly seasoned. We are big thai fans,... More

This place is exactly what you'd expect from a local strip mall Thai joint - but in a good way. The place is clean, the service is quick. The food is good and the prices are fair. Seriously, what more could you want? It may not be 5-star, that is perfectly fine wig me. Here you get exactly what you... More

We had a relaxing dinner for two. The service was pleasant. The surroundings were calm and I enjoyed looking at the wall decor. My companion is a vegetarian and so we had all tofu dishes. That is easy to do. Many dishes allow choice of meat. We liked the food but we didn't love any of it. Many there are... More

We ate dinner here one night and we were so happy with the experience we returned the next day for lunch. I don't have time to share all the details of the menu so just highlights: The atmosphere, decor, and layout are outstanding. Beautiful decor, bright colors, very clean - just simply a delightful dining environment. Not what you might... More
