I used to come here often when the restaurant first opened years ago - food was first rate and used to have authentically prepared dishes like stuffed chicken wing and homemade coconut ice cream, and their curries out of this world. However, the recent visits showed the changes for the worse: (1) While the service was efficient, it was less... More

This is a truly fabulous Thai restaurant! Do NOT come if you want "fast" food - they cook each item after you order it, so settle in for a wonderfully delicious leisurely meal of food cooked just for you! My husband got the dumpling appetizers to share with my brother, and they both inhaled them! My brother also got the... More

My partner and I eat here several times a year and find it to be VERY consistent. The service is friendly and prompt. Seems that the same great people are always working (maybe family members). I drink huge amounts of ice water and my glass is always kept topped up! Plenty of well lit FREE parking. Always a plus in... More

The Thai Palace is a nice place to eat. The food is always good and the service is good and low key. There are spaces to accommodate varying numbers of diners from an intimate twosome to a larger gathering. A place to count on for good food.

Some good some not so. One thing that was good was the servers, they are super nice and quick. Good came out almost to fast. We had Tom Kar Gai soup which was not good. Really salty and boring. By far way down on the tasty list of ok coconut soups which we always get at Thai restaurants. The spring... More

We tried this place on a whim last night and it did not disappoint! The pad thai with chicken was absolutely wonderful! We also tried the green curry, which was tasty, but the pad thai was definitely the star! Highly recommend for thai in Chapel Hill!

Very good Thai. Have had take out several times, and it is always very good. Love the curries. Tofu is great. Decent prices.

I stopped by Thai Palace only because it was on my way home from work and I really, really wanted pad thai. I ordered to-go and my food was ready in about 10-15 minutes. The appetizers, curry puffs and summer rolls, were so delicious. I would come back for those alone, and my husband agrees. The pad thai was also... More

To begin with, if your meal is not to your liking, be sure to let your waiter know. A review after the fact will not help you get what you want. I'd suggest even letting the staff know ahead of time that you are looking for a more authentic Thai experience. That said, our meal was very good! We waited... More

We must have also even there on an off day because this was the worse meal we have had in a long time. We ordered chicken sates that were produced to fast that they must have been already made -- the chicken was dry and the peanut sauce was floury. We ordered steamed dumplings that tasted gamey, and the padthai... More
