Very Good!

My wife and I have traveled Thailand many times. Although I would not call this localized Thai food it would be more similar to Thai food at good hotels in Bangkok. It would also be comparable to the better Thai restaurants in Shanghai China. Although this is not the most authentic Thai food that... read more

Hidden behind Fresh Market is this lovely quaint Thai restaurant with a nice ambience and great food. They offer a wide variety of choices - great soups, entrees and deserts. The service is excellent. I have been over two dozen times since I moved to Charlotte a couple of of years back from Chicago and never been disappointed. The food... More

Thai Orchid has been around forever, and I believe the owners were the first or among the first to open a Thai restaurant in Charlotte. Over all these years, the food remains consistently good and the menu is pretty much the same. But it is a big menu, with a lot of choices, lots of vegetarian options.The service is very... More

This is our go to place for Thai food. Always good service, food is always good, pricing is very reasonable, and the ambiance fits the restaurant well. They do a large take-out business also. What else is there to say.

I enjoyed my first taste of Thai food in this quaint little restaurant that is tucked away in the middle of a small shopping center. This is not one of those places you drive by and say, "we should go there". It is almost invisible from the parking lot. What this place is, is the type you place your friends... More

Good food, reasonable prices, great service, average ambiance, but all things considered I really like to eat here. It is tucked away in the Strawberry Hills Shopping Center which is a good thing because otherwise it would be difficult to get a seat. Great choice for lunch or dinner.

Well I really wanted to like this place. It's close to home and an acquaintance ran it until recently. From what I've been told it was the first Thai place in town. But that was then and this is now and tastes have changed. I have eaten Thai in several countries (including Thailand) and cook my own so have a... More

We live in walking distance so I may be a little jaded on "Best in Charlotte" but it is darn good food with the same staff for many many years. Nudi the former owner has left to operate a B&B in Thailand last year and I must say the food is still great. Closed on Sundays.

We have eaten at numerous Thai restaurants in Charlotte. We just had lunch and found our new favorite Thai place. The food was delicious and we were served very quickly. We each chose an item from the lunch menu and were very pleased with our selections. We will be returning for dinner soon. I did notice that they had a... More
