Never thought to find such an excellent Thai restaurant in such a small town. Food was excellent--fresh appetizers and each of our entrees totally surprised and satisfied us. Service was attentive, meals were served quickly, and prices were very good!

Had read about this restaurant in "Our State" magazine about a year ago and filed it away as a place to try out if we ever happened to be in Rutherfordton. Well we were finally in Rutherfordton and Rutherford Thai was certainly worth the wait....More

Very small restaurant; but excellent food and good service. An outstanding find in a small town with not many dining options.

My husband and I ate here for lunch today. Everything was an A+! The food was excellent and the service was just as good. This is a place I could eat at on a daily basis.

A nice surprise in town. There are not too meant restaurants around here so this was a refreshing surprise for a date night when we didn't feel like driving to Asheville or Hendersonville. Good food, fast service

Quaint restaurant with great service and food. I tried the shrimp potpori and was pleased. Pad thai dishes also very good. Excellent Ginger tea. A tad pricey for some dishes but great food overall.

When we first started eating here it was so good, but the last three times we have eaten there it was very disappointing--there has been a lack of detail and care in the preparation of the foods. We ate at Thai Basil in Black Mountain...More

The Thai food here is excellent. Very authentic. My husband said it was the best Thai food he has ever had. The herbs and seasonings are done to perfection. This is a great choice if there are vegetarians in your party. So healthy and so...More
