This is a jewel of a restaurant right beside the Rutherfordton courthouse. I've traveled all over Asia, and this is some of the best thai I've ever eaten. And the people running are very nice people.

Moved here from a big city with many Thai Restaurants and was afraid I'd have to travel far for good Thai cuisine, but fortunately that is not the case with Rutherford Thai! Friendly service and well prepared food!

While dining for any business purposes can yield a great experience, I find the true test of a restaurant is when dining with your family - specifically, with three children. I dined at Rutherford Thai during a business trip and enjoyed it so much I returned with my family. We decided to go on the early side since our children... More

The restaurant is somewhat small but the service is first rate and the food is reasonable and well prepared, a good variety for a small town.

We are so blessed to have such a good Thai restaurant here in Rutherfordton. The food is fresh and delicious. I have had the garden rolls and the spring rolls, but I think I liked the garden rolls better. And I have had the Green Curry, which was outstanding and the Drunken Noodle. Next time, I'll try the Drunken Noodle... More

Traveling through the area en route back from Atlanta and found the TA reviews on this place. We were the only ones in there, as they were almost ready to close. We ordered a fantastic appetizer, as summer roll type with a delicious clear spicy condiment. We then had two different curries and my 7 year old had the fried... More

After a week of spiceless food in western North Carolina, we were thrilled to stumble into the charming Rutherford Thai. The waitress, who was excellent, asked how hot we wanted it on a scale of 1 to 10. I chickened out from the 10 to the 8, but 10 would have been fine for me. My husband was fine with... More

I discovered Rutherford Thai today while just cruising Rutherfordton for anyplace OPEN to have lunch on a Sunday afternoon. I love cozy little mom & pop shops so I immediately felt comfortable and liked the simple atmosphere. The young waitress named Jullie-Ann was cheerful and really knew the menu backwards and forwards, which was a good thing, because the menu... More

You can just tell the food here is prepared by a chef who has a genuine passion for food and its preparation and presentation. The ingredients were incredibly fresh and full of flavor. This is the first time I've ever had Thai tea and now I crave it. We had the garden rolls as an appetizer and never have I... More

Rutherford Thai is a small mom-and-pop place downtown. I ate there in a group of six diverse people, and we all greatly enjoyed our food. Almost all of us ordered something different. The food is cooked to order, which accounts for its high quality. The waitress was very helpful in guiding us toward the spiciness - or lack of it... More
