Unique presentation

We stopped here on our way home from the Atlanta Zoo. The owner greeted us at the door, and was warm and welcoming! Our meal was delicious! We look forward to our return trip to Atlanta, so we can stop in along the way!

Sure, the decor is at the 5 star level; it doesn't get any cooler than that. But my Pad Thai was unrecognizable.except for the presence of noodles and bean sprouts. The flavor was OK, it just wasn't Pad Thai. Worse, when I requested tofu instead of shrimp, I was talked into added vegetables. My plate had not one piece of... More

My husband, son, and I ate dinner here last night, and we had a great experience. We ate lots of delicious, spicy food, including one dish called In Honor of the King, which included about twelve ingredients and was our favorite. Our waitress was extremely friendly and prompt, and she patiently explained things on the very long menu so that... More

We ate here about 10 years ago, so on return visit tried again. This place is quirky and fun. Food is amazing. When you walk in the door it smells like real, delicious thai cooking. The owners are friendly and kind/personable. What fun to have our food delivered in watermelons and large carved pumpkins (all tables with wide smiles). The... More

In Virginia highland sort of off the beaten path but worth the visit. It isn't huge on ambiance especially in the winter but the food is fantastic. I have ordered the basil duck and it's one of the best I've eaten in atlanta, they give large portions and it is fantastic 😀 and enough for three meals

We were in town from Raleigh, NC visiting my cousin and her family and she showed us this place the day before. I have to say by the looks of the sign outside I probably wouldn't have gone in. I am so glad so took us! The decor inside was very fun and there was a nice breeze blowing through... More

It's been said that Atlanta is a food mecca, and for good reason. Year after year new eateries seem to pop up (and close doors) in the squint of an eye. However, more often than not these establishments prove to be nothing more than failed menus of overpriced food watered down to suit the American palate. That's where Panita fills... More

You will never find this place if you don't know about it - but if you love Thai, this is the place to go in Atlanta. My husband and I have both been to Thailand many times, and this is the most authentic (decor and food wise) place you can find. Panita is the sole proprietor and is the only... More
