Terrific Thai!

Moon's thai is half the reason we make Ocracoke our getaway destination every year. Her food is delicious, portions are just right, served up with a smile, and one of the few places where when you order Thai hot, you really get Thai hot that forces me to eat slowly to savor. Most recently we... read more

Very disappointing. Ordered soft shell crab special and some of the crabs did not taste well. Shrimp spring roll, not much shrimp.

We bought several different varieties of food, all of it was hot and delicious! They gave us bowls, forks, napkins and plenty of sauce!! This was a great first visit, we will be back!

What a surprise to find such an authentic Thai place on Ocracoke! It is fabulously authentic, having been in Thailand, I can say that this is the real deal. Take out only and bring cash (only cash is accepted!)

This place is a gem. The menu is broad, the food is fresh and prepared to order. They're hopping so you might wait 20-30 minutes but it's well worth the wait. Be sure to bring cash as that is the only currency they accept. This was by far my favorite food of our trip and I will make a point... More

Fast and friendly service at the counter. The employee took the time to explain the different levels of heat (spice) to the dishes. I went with American-hot and it was just the perfect amount of spice on my panaeng curry which was so good! I highly recommend this dish!

Even though, the sign says they open at noon, they open at 3pm. They put an additional sign at the window to tell customers that they open at noon. That was misleading.

Was looking forward to going back this year for another tasty Thai takeout. Was disappointed with our meal though, kind of stodgy. And it wasn't cheap. It's cash only too.

Authentic Thai. Don't expect this to be like the faux Thai chains. If you think you like it spicy, ask for it "American Hot." If you KNOW you like it REALLY spicy, ask for it "Thai Hot" or "Thai Hot Plus." Fresh bird chilis abound! Good Pad Kee Mao. Good Panang Curry. Not the best I've ever had, but it... More

Great lunch on both occasions. We had chicken satay, shrimp spring rolls and fried rice. It's carry out only, but there are shaded tables to eat at outside- just ask for plates. The second time we went here, we called our order in ahead so we didn't have to wait.
