Is this a low-key, easily accessible Thai restaurant just off 85 in Durham. I have been here many times passing through and always enjoy the food. The green curry is my favorite as it is spicy served quickly with a nice pepper tray

We had been at the museum of life and science all morning and were extremely hungry after walking around the grounds for 3 hours. We both were craving some Thai food but hadn't tried any places yet in Durham and found this place only which...More

There were quite a few customers when we visited this restaurant on a weekday night, so I kind of expected it to be better. The food was just ok. I would probably eat there again, but there's just not anything remarkable to say about what...More

The food is terrific, easily the best Thai in Durham, for my money. Order takeout if you can, as the restaurant dining area is low on ambience. Focus on the food, which is wonderful.

We ordered the masaman curry and pad thai. Both were served promptly and in an appealing presentation. The food was very good, the service was very good, and the price is right. If you are going to look at the decorations, you are going there...More

Not a lot of atmosphere, but the food is pretty darn good. And when they say hot, they mean it. Pain and flavor. Winning combo!

Ordered the Thai Ginger and Masaman curry. It was fresh and hot, reasonably flavored, though chicken was a bit tough. Thai tea and coffee were good. Overall, average food.

Spotted the Pad Thai across from our hotel and decided to try it. An unassuming exterior did nothing to give us pause. "It's the food" as my father says, and having eaten food in Thailand on several occasions I am familiar with the cuisine. Since...More

I feel like it was expensive for what I got. But it seemed clean, the clientele seemed like a good crowd, and my waitress lady was really sweet and pleasant to talk to.

Wanting a tasty, inexpensive dinner, we chose Pad Thai. The two dishes we chose were the Massaman Curry and the Basil Fried Rice with chicken. Both were excellent. The basil fried rice with chicken had a little bit of heat to it, but not to the degree I expected with the single chili pepper icon next to it on the menu. In any case, the dish as excellent and the value was terrific as the total bill, including tip and two soft drinks for two of us was $30. I'm concerned that they won't make it because there were only six people in the place when we left at 7:15 pm. That is a shame as it is cheap, clean, and the food is delicious.
