We decided to try this out because we were staying nearby. My chicken dish was very tasty, and my daughter had a very large bowl of soup that she loved. The service was good as well.

I used to go to Twisted Noodle every year for my birthday because I believed it had the best Eastern Asian food in the Chapel Hill-Carrboro city area. But I stopped when they raised the prices on every dish by $3-5. Suddenly, I had to pay $12 for my favorite dish instead of a reasonable $7. Compared to some other... More

Eating in this restaurant is not the best experience, since it feels just like eating at the Subway a few doors down. I don't think there is much of anything that could be done to make it feel any differently, so I'm not blaming the restaurant for that. The food, however, is the best! I have eaten pretty much everything... More

Had a late lunch/early dinner here on a Sunday afternoon. Was a little unnerved upon arrival, as the dining room was completely empty- usually not a good sign. However, we were pleasantly surprised. Other parties arrived while we were there and several people came in to place or pickup carryout orders. The summer rolls were a great starter. I had... More

We asked for seats with benches. Host asked us to sit on hard chairs instead of the benches because they wanted to reserve tables for kids. Other bench tables for 4 had only 2 people. Why give us a hard time for seating? This shows misunderstanding of customer experience. Female host/server on march 6 at 7pm will drive other customers... More

It was in the middle of lunchtime, I was seated immediately. Service was outstanding, and lunch was great. The ginger dressing on the salad was super, light but tasty. Will return.

Another tip from the local food blog, Bites of Bull City. We stopped in for lunch and was awarded with a terrific meal. The Tom Yum soup was flavorful and satisfying. The roast duck with red curry was very unique and very delicious. We will definitely be back on our next visit to the area.

There are times I just know I don't want any American food. Many times it is when I'm on the road and I have seen 50 McDonald's and smelt 50 more Hardee's. This was the case when I pulled into here. I got nice, polite service from a teenage boy and girl, but the food was very mediocre with the... More

The taste in my opinion was just ok but well below very good Thai restaurants. I'm traveling through the area and always look for good Thai. This wasn't as good as previous reviews. I probably will not give it a second try.

This is mostly a take out place, but it does have tables. I've had take out from there several times and have always enjoyed the food. It is not great Thai food. They recently raised prices, so I am looking for an alternative.
