Best Red Curry we've ever had!!! Authentic!!!!!

The building and atmosphere are lacking but who cares when the food and service are this good... can't believe we've lived here 3+ years and never knew about this gem!!! The staff and employees are taking classes in Gluten Free and are VERY knowledgeable they will be coming out with a special menu... read more

I never would have anticipated finding an excellent Thai restaurant a few miles off I-77 in northern North Carolina. After a grueling day of travel, we arrived at our hotel and asked for a list of local restaurants. What a treat we discovered! While the exterior did not look like a Thai restaurant, from the moment we walked in the... More

Great food and wonderful service. These folks love what they do. Do not miss the mango sticky rice dessert! My meal was a mild spicy curry with vegetables and pineapple. Delicious! My friends were skeptical before we went, but we each had a great meal. We celebrated a birthday so it was important that the meal be special. It was!... More

Food was good, atmosphere inside had no ambiance. Next time would just do takeout. From the outside you cant tell its a Thai restaurant, we were recommended to it by someone at the hotel we stayed at.

This restaurant has changed its name to "Prime Thai". My food was very good and plentiful. I should have asked for a take out box in the beginning and only eaten half. I would go back to this restaurant again.

I enjoy going Dewey's Thai Cafe for supper with my boyfriend. I always get the same meal, which is a chicken with peanuts, and have never been disappointed (nor has my boyfriend and he likes the duck). Small, homey feeling makes this place a great little place to escape for a meal. Fast service and nice people.

Don't make the mistake we almost did. Not much curb appeal, which almost caused us to pass this place by. But this establishment puts effort where it counts most; on service, value, and product. Nice presentation of entrees. Good portions. Great prices. My pad thai was a bit on the sweet side for my taste, but this *is* the south... More

The food was just average at Prime Thai. It is no longer called Dewey's Thai Cafe. This restaurant would not be number one in any city where I'ved lived but this is Elkin after all. I don't know if I could attribute this to the Duck Pad Thai that I had at Prime Thai but I did have the runs... More

My wife and I have occasion to be in Elkin although we live out of state. My first choice of restaurants as we travel is Thai. I have eaten at many from coast to coast. Last week we ate at Prime Thai, as it is now called, after several other visits there. You don't need big or fancy to have... More

During a camping trip to nearby Stone Mountain State Park, we drove down to the 'city' to explore. After checking Trip Advisor we found Dewey's for lunch. Thai in Elkin, who knew! We noticed several civil servants coming out so we figured it had to be good. Good service and a great lunch menu. Tasty curry and a very good... More
