Great Thai at a cozy place

Myy husband and I ate there with my daughter and her college roommate. The good was very good, service was fast and prices were comparable, if not below the standard Cary Town standard. Pad Thai and yellow curry were excellent.

Have been many times and it is consistently amazing! Best Thai I've ever had, hands down!! Don't know what they do that makes the food here so exceptional, but it is. May be their sauces and their jumbo-sized, juicy vegetables. Small venue, but pleasantly cozy, plus they have a covered patio. A favorite!

Best pad thai around. The owner has been back to Thailand multiple times for training. She is very concerned with your satisfaction and does everything she can to make your experience the very best.

Super fast service... Bit pricey for what you get. Curry flavor was great. Had soup with tofu. Tofu was just weird. Look like maybe fried first and had horrible texture. Crab ran goons expensive and not great

The room is nice and cozy, and the service was fine. I can't wrap my brain around the Sinatra-style music. The foods was pretty good, but an otherwise-fine Pad Thai was scarred by a large amount of white onions, even though were plenty of green ones. White onions don't belong. And really, $12.50 for lunch Pad Thai is steep.

My husband and I had not had Thai for a while, and quite honestly, its pretty expensive in Richmond. So we decided to stop by this little restaurant while we were in Cary Town. We always try to go some place different in order to sample all of Cary Town's cuisine. We were not disappointed. It was small, quaint, and... More

I would like to see a little more variety, but excellent service and great Thai food. Don't order it "Thai hot" unless you mean it!

We have patronized Ginger Thai many, many times over the last several years because some close friends really like it. My most recent visit, though was with my daughter. Her first experience with tofu was at Ginger Thai, and she loved it. If you are not familiar with the restaurant, they are on the corner of Cary and McCloy streets... More

Everyone ordered something different. It was all very good. I would highly recommend it. We have also ate there at a very good pizza restaurant, however I cannot recall the name.

This is our favorite place to stop for lunch in Carytown when we're visiting Richmond for the day. A little pricy for lunch, but the flavors are exciting, portions are large, and it's a laid back, cozy atmosphere. The pad thai is exceptional, as is the drunken noodles.
