A Porsche Cayenne of Thai

After being for here for many months, I decided to Thai. And I'm glad I did! Now at times, the flavor was actually overwhelming. But at the end, there was subtlety left over. I did takeout and only waited 5 or 10 mins. I chuckled as I headed home. I pulled out behind the owner. Yea, he was... read more

I can't believe people actually consider this to be authentic Thai food, to me that speaks volumes about the lack of options in town more than anything. None of this is made from scratch, everything is pre-packaged and just thrown together with some meat and veggies, it's not good, it's the same generic Thai food you can get at any... More

OMG...this is our standard go to place for take-out Thai. Menu is fantastic and very authentic. I've been to Thailand twice, and this was as good as the best street food in Bangkok. Located inside a Harris Teeter Grocery store, they have limited low frills seating. Its largely a fantastic take out place

Just out shopping in the Harris Teeter Grocery store last night and saw that there was a Thai restaurant in there! Not full service, but you can order at the counter, sit down and they will bring it to you. It was so nice to be able to shop then get something to eat, one stop! We had appetizers and... More

Ate here on a recent trip to Winston-Salem based on the reviews. Food was too greasy for me, more noodles than chicken or tofu. Portions are big but taste was not what Thai food should taste.

Wow, I realize their web site said they were #1 on Yelp, but I didn't believe it until I had dinner there last night. My wife, daughter and I started off with basil spring rolls and fried cheddar rolls - both excellent. Then for my entree I had Spicy Basil Catfish - extra spicy - and let me tell you,... More

The fresh basil rolls are to die for. I LOVE the spicy noodle. I have never eaten a single thing here that wasn't fresh, delish and an incredible value. Can't say enough good. We get take out, since the atmosphere is a Harris Teeter grocery store.

This is the best Thai and possibly the best restaurant in Winston-Salem, situated in a rinky-dink corner of Harris Teeter. Addictive flavors, extremely fresh ingredients, nice-sized portions and lovely presentation. We have tried almost every item on their menu and with only one exception (Pork Laab) have loved it. I can't say enough about the eggplant curry. The prices are... More
