Not afraid to turn up the heat!

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... read more

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.

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.

We had the Crab Fried Rice which was tasty but had a LOT of crab shells throughout it. My husband had a Green Curry Bowl with Chicken which was excellent.

The owner is a Thai national married to a US Merchant Marine sailor - need I say more? Its not american Thai this is THAI food at its best. Unless you are prepared for Thai HOT I recommend you select Medium or Mild or something in between. Thai hot is a religious experience if you haven't had - or if... More

Thai Moon clearly has a monopoly on thai food on Ocracoke. While the sauce bases were decent, the skimpy amount of cheap meats and scant veggies was a joke. The menu says jasmine rice, everything served with overcooked bland white rice. Super high prices for take out, cash only. Give me a break! Save your money!

The food was good, prices were reasonable. Nice area to sit on deck, but just a few tables. Bring cash, no cards accepted. Food is very fresh, herbs are grown right at the kitchen door! (Flowers at the entrance were gorgeous!)

A small place tucked away, but well worth the visit. Authentic food, generous portions and incredibly delicious. Served quickly and piping hot. Sat out front and ate right there, very friendly service, acceptable prices. Well worth every penny. Does not accept credit cards, so bring cash. This is the BEST Thai food I have eaten, will definitely return!

This is the best Thai food I've ever had. My husband and I make this our first stop when we arrive on the island.
