We ate here due to the reviews. The Spring Rolls were fantastic! However, I found out that I do not like Thai food. The flavors are great....just not my style. Very garlicky. However, I am told that this is really fantastic homemade Thai...and the locals swear by it. It was also written up in The State magazine.....So go if you... More

Each time we eat here we enjoy the experience. The food is delicious and authentic (a friend who is a Thai chef verifies this! ), the atmosphere is cozy and the staff is super helpful.

We have had many, many lunches and dinners at this wonderful place over the years and were never disappointed. Food always come nicely prepared, spiced to our liking, served with a smile and authentic Thai ingredients. A "hole in the wall" gem that deserves highest praises for it's consistency and the unassuming, welcoming ambiance.

Thanks trip advisor for not letting us down. The food was very good. Service was a bit slow but the place was full and it was a Thursday night. May want to sand the front door down. It sticks really bad! Don't ask me what we ordered I can't even pronounce it much less spell it.

Love Rutherford Thai. Have eaten there many times, but like the Drunken noodles(with leguine noodles)is is excellent. Have eaten many dishes and all are fabulous. Soft relaxing music and good atmosphere. Only problem is sometimes when they get very busy, service is a little slow. However, it is worth the wait.

Great little place in the small town of Rutherfordton. I've only been there once, but plan on returning with my family. It's very small, so try to get there early to beat the crowds.
