Pon is the owner, a wonderful little Thai lady. All the food is fresh and prepared to order. The chicken wings are very good. She'll make any dish you like -- you can go off menu. Don't let the gas station throw you ... best Thai food in Asheville

If not for a local we never would have found this place. It's hidden away in an Exxon station. Nice staff. Big menu. Great parking.

I remember years ago a friend recommended Pons. But I thought ... not in a gas station? Finally today I decided to give it a try. Had the spicy fried rice with chicken. Wish I would have come here sooner. Definitely will return. Worth a try if you enjoy Thai!

I gave this restaurant a "very good" rating but for me it was in between "Average" and "very good". This restaurant is set inside a Stop and Go gas station/convenient store and has all the charm of such. I would have never thought to come here seeking Thai food, but my husband's friend took him here and he thought it... More

Our friend took us to lunch at Pon's Thai Cuisine, which is located in the corner of a gas station convenience store. Don't let this deter you from visiting, as the food is very good and the setting in the store is nice. We went at lunch, and most of the patrons were locals, having a way above normal lunch... More

Pon - who looks like a typical housewife or grandmother - cooks up delicious made-to-order Thai food that is probably what she makes at home for herself and her family. Favorite dishes like Tam Yum soup, Pad Thai, chicken Satay and a variety of stir-fries are offered and given she makes everything from scratch it takes a little time but... More

I decided to try Pon's Thai after hearing good reviews from some friends. I placed my to-go order at 7:05pm and knowing they had a long wait time, I went to Ingles, bought a few things and filled up my gas tank. I came back to Pon's Thai around 7:30. They had not even started my order yet. Nothing complicated... More

by the fact this place is in a gas station. The food is authentic, made fresh right in front of you, if you stand at the counter to watch. The lovely owner is sweet and makes sure you are satisfied. Prices are more than reasonable and the portions are generous. Take out or eat-in at one of the 4 tables... More

Many people recommended Pon's so I decided to give it a try. Even though it's in a gas station, it didn't put me off lol. The pad Thai is excellent, the fried rice was way too salty. Huge portions. The cook doesn't speak good English so it was hard communicating when my order was wrong, but she fixed it.

Authentic thai food in a gas station; not what you'd expect for Asheville's food scene... You won't find out-of-towners there but locals who know are regulars... Good Pad Thai, pad-see-euw and very good curries...
