“Thai has an excellent variety”
Reviewed 8 February 2012

I am not a big fan of spicy, so was hesitant to go here, but was very pleased to find a selection of dishes that were made for my pallet. I had the combination fried rice dish, which included veggies, chicken, pork, beef and shrimp. topped with green onions and a lime on top. The lime really adds to the flavor of the rice dish. Pricy but you get so much food, I am able to make it into 3 dishes.

“Thai food without spice sure ain't nice”
Reviewed 30 October 2011

We are thai food fanatics and were excited to check out this restaurant. It was so disappointing. We have never had thai food that was so bland and blah! We tried a variety of dishes and will not be returning. I guess we still need a thai restaurantin western WNC!

“Good Thai in the mountains”
Reviewed 29 September 2011

We decided on some take-out Thai here in Franklin, NC. It was recommended by some neighbors who have eaten here several times. Easy to locate on 441 (the Georgia road). The parking is a bit tight especially when busy like it was on this one weeknight, which is always a good sign. Although we did not eat inside we found it nice and clean. Our take-out consisted of two egg rolls, two veggie rolls, Won ton soup, Pad Thai, and Pork with garlic. We were told it would take 30 minutes so we waited outside in the car on a wonderful evening. After 15 minutes, a delighful girl brought out our order to our car. What a surprise and great service! The food was very good overall even though the veggie rolls were a bit overcooked. The soup was delicious and high marks for the other dishes even though there was very little 'hotness' as found in most Thai dishes. Probably tuned to the 'local' tastes. I imagine we could ask for the authentic deal in the future. It should be noted that the order came with two very tasty sauces for the rolls, a side of white rice, and fried noodles. Many restaurants would not offer this extra touch. We would love to give this restaurant an excellent but after dining at many Thai restaurants in the big cities, we just have to be accurate and rate it as very good. The prices are very fair and not too high. We will be back.

“AMAZING THAI IN THE MIDDLE OF THE MOUNTAINS”
Reviewed 16 August 2011

I had the most wonderful dinner with a friend while visiting Franklin and could not believe this was not on the Trip Advisor radar yet! Great selection of vegetarian dishes as well as family friendly. We ordered enough for four people because we could not decide--and the two of us ate every morsel. Prices very reasonable, atmosphere comfortable and clean, not fancy. The place was packed early in the evening with folks from everywhere. I can't wait to go back.
