We eat here every time we are on Ocracoke (several times a year). It is always great. American hot is really hot and Thai hot is beyond that, so be aware.

Here's a thought for island visitors who have kitchen facilities and a taste for Thai. With local seafood readily available, you could buy some fresh fish or shrimp and then simmer in panang curry paste and coconut milk, both of which can be purchased from Thai Moon. They sell a good variety of Thai cooking condiments as well as rice.... More

I am still searching for a better Thai experience on the mainland. The food is just fabulous and authentic. Highly recommended but make sure to bring cash.

Ate there once, just for a quick lunch, I remember the spring rolls being very authentic and good. Seemed like the service was a bit slow.

Their pad thai is different from any I've ever had, and it is my absolute favorite. The owner goes to Thailand every year, so hopefully you catch them open if you go in the spring. It's easily the food-highlight of the trip!

My sister recommended this restaurant. It is simply a takeout place with no seats in the restaurant. They have a few tables on the porch which is perfect for us since we travel with a dog The food at this place delicious and plentiful. I ordered the pad thai with shrimp and my husband had the lo mein with shrimp.... More

Had a quick light lunch. Nice to find a Thai restaurant here. Food was adequate, not bad but not great. Service was average. It's takeout only but there are tables outside where you can eat which i think are shared with other establishments.

I love spicy food. I ordered the Drunken Noodles (as I do at many Thai restaurants). She asked if I wanted it spicy. I said yes. She said medium, I said yes. They have a sign at the register that says, "Thai spicy is very spicy. If you order something too spicy and you cannot eat it, we are not... More
