Description: Coconut Thai Cuisine owner, Amy, was born in a small South Thailand province, where she absorbed the art of cooking from her family’s restaurant business. She’s proud to have brought the unique techniques and flavors of her home to Statesboro -- she pours her heart and soul into the authentic Thai dishes she serves. Each one, from noodles to fried rice selections to curries, is designed to entice the five taste senses and take you on a culinary adventure. And because our guests deserve nothing less than the very best, we import our ingredients directly from Thailand, grow many of our own herbs fresh in our garden, and are committed to keeping MSG out of our kitchen. Join us, and enjoy authentic Thai cuisine in our romantic, whimsical space -- we hope you can taste the freshness and love in every bite.

“Best restaurant in town by far”
Reviewed June 28, 2012

A fun atmosphere, wonderful wait staff, but best of all, a selection of food on which you can't go wrong. My favorite: fried pineapple rice with giant scallops. Comes in a pineapple half and is so delicious you can almost eat the whole thing! They also do wine-tasting evenings.
We try to get here at least once a month. It may not be "standard" Thai, but it is excellent.

“Our go-to lunch place!”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

We were thrilled to have Thai come to Statesboro, and we are still glad they are here. My friends and I have lunch there as often as possible. Good curry, Thai basil, peanut dressing. The staff is delightful!

“Great food, great atmosphere!”
Reviewed March 28, 2012

This place is small, quaint, and well decorated. The staff is friendly and attentive. The food is absolutely DELICIOUS (recommend the sweet and sour chicken plate and *anything* on the dessert menu). Only complaint is that a couple items are a little higher than I would normally pay, but it is well worth it, I promise! :D

“Not great for thai”
Reviewed March 2, 2012

If you know thai food you'll probably be disapointed. If not, you might love it. The food isnt bad persay, just not great when compared to good thai food. The portions tend to be small (which has never been my experience at other thai restaurants). The atmosphere is nice though.

Our Lunch Portions are a little less than half of our dinner portions. Our dinner portions are more than generous and hardly ever can anyone finish their entire meal! Customers are excited to have Coconut for lunch the next day with all of their left overs!

“Locals love it!”
Reviewed February 26, 2012

I recently realized I should review my local restaurants while searching for dining options in another city.
Coconuts is the best restaurant in Statesboro when you evaluate food, service and atmosphere. It is appropriate for a date or business meeting. It is not a great place for families, which makes it nicer for adult gatherings. The servers are attentive and the chef is accommodating. The specials are based on ingredients available. The only time I would not choose Coconut is a special occasion during which there will be a lot of college students.
My favorites include stir fry vegetables with tofu, pad kee mao, and the crispy beef. Many diners eat their favorite over and over. We always check the dessert case to decide if we will have an appetizer or dessert. The chocolate covered apple is fantastic and the best dessert in the city hands down. It easily serves 3.
