If you love authentic Thai food this the place to go . They get all the flavors right. The menu offers a wide variety . Staff is very friendly and attentive. We look forward to visiting this place every year.

Without a doubt, this is the best Pad Thai I've ever had. Pros: Hole in the wall feel Real heat, I always get medium at Thai joints but would suggest mild here Pad Thai had complex flavor and a generous portion Lots of vegetarian choices...on the menu Must try the sundried beef Attentive service Cons: All 'Chinese' chicken dishes are heavily coated in breading like puffy sweet n sour then coated in whatever sauce you ordered, do not recommend it. It will not be the dish experience you're looking for. If you do not arrive exactly when they open, then you should expect a wait to be seated and also a wait for your food.More

The atmosphere was good the service was great and the food was excellent. The people were the most friendly I have seen in a long time. I will be going back as often as I can. If you want great Chinese food go to the...Thai Room. You can go somewhere else but I promise it will not be as good. Not only was the food good but it was excellently presented on the plate, never have I seen such a beautiful presentation of food.Tables we're decorated nicely with live flowers and the restaurant was clean very clean.More

Excellent Thai food. We had the shrimp summer rolls, pork fried dumplings, Pad Thai with shrimp, chicken basil stir fry. Everything was delicious, even the sauce for the apps. We had leftovers and ate it the next day for lunch. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable...abut menu. I would definitely recommend stopping here.More

My husband is a BIG Thai fan and so we tried it out. We got there right at 5pm, were sat immediately, got our drinks from the full bar and ordered right away. The food was authentic, fresh, and the medium Thai heat made his...eyeballs sweat! They also have Chinese selections so I had the MooShuPork and it was fabulous. Big shout out to Jackson, our server, who was charming and very good at pointing us to the best selections. We will return the next time were in OBX.More

The Thai room has always been somewhat inconsistent with their spice levels, but still good. However on a night in June my Dinner Club decided to go for dinner since some had never been there and others haven’t been in years. Worst night ever!! 6...people we ordered our drinks then apps and then dinner. The first two went well except I had wanted mine as my dinner and had told the waitress this. 2 hours later and we still hadn’t gotten our dinners. 5 people had not gotten theirs with repeated attempts to find out where the meals were. As we decided to leave they said our meals were coming out. 2 of the people decided to take theirs home. There was absolutely NO compensation for anything!! Not a discount not a GC for a future visit absolutely nothing. We will never go there again and will not recommend them either.More

This was a place with pros and cons. The food was outstanding. I had drunken noodles and I tried someone's pad Thai. Both were excellent. We ordered medium heat and it was very spicy. I like that, but the other person didn't expect so much...heat. I ordered online and we took the food back to our airbnb. I ordered at 7:15 and was told it would be an hour wait. That was fine. I arrived around 8pm. There were people waiting inside for take out orders that were obviously unhappy. They said their orders were long overdue and had been waiting for up to an hour. The restaurant had stopped taking seated diners, so the kitchen was working only on take out orders still to be processed and I still didn't get my order until 30 minutes after the due time of 1 hour from order. So it took 90 minutes from order to food. Others had a longer wait. One person who had eaten at the restaurant said he had to wait over an hour for his food after ordering. So it wasn't just take out orders that were very slow. The staff said they tried to cut off online orders at 6:30, but obviously, that didn't work. They really need to fix that. I don't know if I'd come back even though the food was great. The unreliable and long time estimates put me off.More

Horrible experience, waited two hours after placing an order for dinner for a group of six.. When questioned to the wait staff, we were told they’re working on our dinner. There were other parties that came in after us, and they had their food and...left before we even got our entrées. We asked to talk to the manager on duty, it took him 10 minutes to come out and see us, and then he said oh your food is now done after two hours. We did not order anything out of the ordinary . It all came off of their menu. I will not go back there again, I don’t even know how the food was, but if that’s the service that they are going to give, it’s not worth it for me.More

This was a great escape from the crowds and noise at the beach. We were seated quickly and served. Although there were other people there , there was not the noise and chaos of some of the more well known spots. The food was wonderful....I really liked that you could choose your heat preference on the spicier dishes. That was incredibly helpful. Our entrees came with fried rice and an eggroll, The eggroll was large, crispy on the outside and filled with goodness inside. The food was great and well worth the money. Our entrees were in the 12 dollar range and well worth it.More

Good news first, the green curry was absolutely delicious — and we’ve traveled in Thailand. This was the worst service I have ever received in my life, and I’m not attempting to exaggerate for dramatic effect. They were overwhelmed and behind from the time we...arrived, but the hostess was sweet and open about it. After we were seated we waited 20 minutes with no contact from a server. We flagged someone down and asked to provide both our drink and entree orders at once. 45 minutes in someone came to refill our waters and tell us that our food would be out right away. 15 minutes later as we prepared to leave, the table of locals were seated and received appetizers in less than 10 minutes. Our food was good, but we never saw the same server twice. Not one person came to check on us or bring additional water during our meal, I had to get up to go to the kitchen for refills on water. We had to go to the kitchen again to get our check after waiting without success to flag someone down and ask for it. They were overwhelmed, but probably should have closed to dine in orders tonight.More

This was our first visit and we were generally pleased with the experience. My Pad Thai was delicious, as good as I have had anywhere, and the portion was generous. My wife’s pineapple fried rice was too sticky for her liking, but the flavor was...good. The service was very good as the server kept our teacups filled.More

We have been to many Thai restaurants over the years but have not been back to the Thai Room for over 10 years despite living here. The Good: Decor has been improved and service was fast and efficient. The quantity of food was impressive and...we did take a modest amount home for the next day. The Acceptable: The Pad Thai was tasty and the mild version was still spicy but not overly so for our taste. It did lack sufficient fish sauce and pad thai sauce that we use when we make it at home or have it at a more authentic Thai restaurant. The "Not So Good/Bad?": The Ginger Perfect with Chicken I ordered had a nice flavor but the vegetables included carrots, bell pepper and cabbage which are not typical Thai additions. The "sauce" was watery but worst of all the chicken seemed to have been boiled and then cut into shreds and reheated in the liquid for this dish; the chicken was mostly inedible because of the very bad/overcooked texture. Do NOT order any chicken dishes unless the menu says it has been grilled as in the Satay where it was very nicely done. Overall I would not recommend this restaurant to friends/family.More
