I was looking for a dinner place close to Lap It Up where I was taking a dog training class. We decided to give Thai Lanna a try. I thought it was totally delicious. The side salad (that comes as part of any meal) has a delicious cilantro dressing. Unusual and wonderful. I also had a really warming lemon grass... More

We've had to travel far and wide in Durham and Cary to find decent Thai food. Some restaurants have been disappointing. Imagine our surprise when we found one in the little shopping center near our breakfast place (Benetis). Zero atmosphere, but super food, graciously served. My wife had the Pad Thai (her standby) and I had Panang Curry. We also... More

One of my favorite Thai restaurants. The Tom Yum soup is fantastic. Squid in Love is always great. Very fast service. Friendly staff and reasonable prices.

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
