My friends and I ordered the Pad Kra Pao; it was amazingly flavorful, featuring Thai Basil. We each had the dish with tofu, but meats are available, as well as shrimp. The dish features lots of vegetables and rice with a spicy sauce. As this is a favorite dish of mine when eating Thai food, I was pleased to find... More

I think the place itself and the food are very authentic. It's two of the reasons of why I love eating at Cha Da Thai. I ordered the Red Curry that comes with a side of white steam rice and it tasted amazing. The spice, the sauces, everything! I would definitely go again and recommend others to go as well.... More

We stopped in after reading the reviews. Very flavorful and fresh! . Priced reasonably and nice atmosphere. Best to stop by on a non-holiday weekend. Parking in downtown Boone can be a nightmare!

Food is routinely above average. I've had a few great meals here and I've had a few so-so meals here. I'll be back next year. Hope OK NOTE TO OWNERS!!!!!. Your restrooms are disgusting. You need to invest in new toilet seats and lose the moth ball smelling deodorizers and darkly stained toilet seats. The restroom literally ruins my meal... More

We ate here a couple times when visiting our daughter in App. This was the best Thai food I had found in the entire state of NC. I highly recommend this restaurant.
