Perfect spot for lunch especially if you work in the RTP area. Very affordable and extremely tasty Thai food. Really recommend the Tom Ka Kai soup! The Chicken Pad Thai was also very good!

I have only gotten to go orders, but everything that we've had from there has been yummy. My husband loves their pineapple fried rice and I like almost all of the noodle dishes.

Our dinner was good, but not spectacular. I should have tried something with a little more spice, but it being my first time at the restaurant, I played it safe. The service was good, and the menu diverse, so the place deserves a second chance.

In the area for business, and we had about 45 minutes to grab lunch so my colleague popped in here. We were seated quickly, ordered in about 5 minutes, and had the food even faster. We found it to be fresh, tasty, and an all-around good choice for a quick lunch and a good value. I had shrimp pad thai... More

Expectations are best set low when dining out at lunchtime in the vicinity of the 54/55 intersection, but the Thai Lanna still managed to disappoint. Truth in advertising was challenged as soon as the ‘side salads’ arrived; I suppose I should blame US rather than Thai culture for permitting a few lettuce leaves underneath a cilantro dressing to qualify as...

Was bringing dinner in for a family. Restaurant opens at 5 but gladly took my order 10 mins before. Inside of restaurant somewhat staid but this was not an indication of food. Entrees of Pad Thai, and chicken Panang very tasty, fresh and accurate. Children loved chicken fried rice. The fresh summer roll and spring rolls delicious with excellent side... More

If you are looking for a Thai place for lunch, 'close' to RTP this could be a great option to try. I ordered the Pad Thai, and it very good. The restaurant has a very simplistic interior.

A family environment with savory, traditional Thai dishes. The owner and employees are super friendly and attentive. I had the advantage of going there with family who know the owners but the other customers seemed to be return diners as well. I can't begin to describe all the wonderful cuisine because we had so many dishes. However, I will highlight... More

I went here to meet a friend who cannot eat any gluten and she likes this place. It has very reasonably priced lunch specials. I had a chicken with noodle dish, where the noodles and chicken are sauteed not fried. The ginger salad dressing included with the lunch specials was great! My friend had a grouper dish that she said... More
