This place offers excellent service and good food. It's not the best Thai I've eaten, but it's run by a hard-working family who really appreciate their customers. I'm present for dinner once or twice a week, and I've worked my way through much of the large menu.

One of the negative reviewers went in with a large party (one noted 9!) and unless you warn the staff ahead of time, you'll get the cold shoulder at most places. Many area restaurants also refuse to split checks and tack on a service fee for large groups: if you have ever worked in a restaurant, you'll know why that practice is common.

As for the food: the noodles here are excellent, the fish fresh, and the green papaya salad a standout for thai flavor.

I'm very fond of their appetizers and the Pad Thai is the best in Cary Town.

If you expect a glamorous dining experience, this is not the pick. It is a family place with character in an old building. The staff have made some upgrades to the bathrooms and dining area, so please refrain from slamming the place.

We ordered two of our favorites, Pad Thai and Green Curry. Both were soooo yummy. When we switched to try each others' meal, we feasted for a while before trading back, since we both enjoyed both meals. Unobtrusive waitstaff, and all seemed to want to help; none of this "I'll be your waiter" stuff. Very reasonable prices.

I read the reviews that stated this was hit and miss but, based on a personal recommendation, we went. We are so glad we did! The food was perfect and so fresh it was easy to identify the individual ingredients. We had one regular Thai dish, a curry dish, and a fried rice dish. All were $11-14 and easily fed extreme hunger of a family of three. We thought the prices were quite reasonable. We love Thai food and we all believe this was among the best we have had. The service was fine. The only caution is that the restrooms in the basement should be avoided unless absolutely necessary.

We love Thai Diner Too! Great location on Cary Street, in the heart of CaryTown. The food is always hot, fresh. Service is fantastic. Lots of vegetarian options. The price is excellent since you get a large portion for the price. Will definitely make this part of my trips to Richmond/VCU
