First off, there have been several renditions of this Thai restaurant. Once called Dan Thai, it became Thai Simulan and eventually Thai Blues, which is its current name. We have eaten at all during the years and based on our recent visit to Thai Blues, the current edition is the best yet. We found both the service and the food... More

Love their Pad Thai, but won't go back now that their health ratings have been consistently awful. For more detail on that, check out WRAL.com.

The food here is really good. But service is variable. One week food arrives quickly; the next is an extended wait. Went for lunch today with a work colleague. We got the customary soup and spring roll within about 10 minutes. Took another 5 minutes to get a glass of water and our order taken. 25 minutes later, still no... More

Stopped in by myself for lunch from work. Seated quickly but a little slow and getting the order in and food out. Food was very good. The Yellow Curry - Chicken lunch was large with a spring roll and chicken soup. Nice spicy dish. Maybe a little heavy for a warm day. The AC was not working and the front... More

Echoing the other reviews on here we found the food to be good. Not the best Thai we have had but very enjoyable. However the service was comically slow and disorganized. They would be well served to hire someone with some experience is running a front of house. It would make the whole experience much better.

The chef here is excellent 5 delicious meals and appetizers However, its a good thing we had plenty of time and good company since it certainly took a long time to get our food It appeared the kitchen was understaffed and the young server under trained. On the positive side the staff tried really hard even to the point of... More

My work group often visits this restaurant for lunch. We all love it and find it a good lunch time value. Lunch specials have plenty of food for under $10. They always start you with some soup and a spring roll. I've tried most items in the lunch menu and have never been disappointed. They are typically slow, and we... More

We went for lunch (but are eager to go back for dinner next time we are in the area). The food was great- very authentic Thai food in a nice (and relaxing!) atmosphere. The menu looked really extensive for dinner although I thought the lunch menu was small. The food was very very good though. Some of the better Thai... More

Also known as Dan Thai. This place has great Thai food. Their pad thai, pad see eu, and spicy noodles are all amazing. The peanut sauce on their salad is the best. Nice atmosphere, helpful staff, fairly quick service most of the time (it was a little slow on valentine's day, but they also had a full restaurant and they... More
