good Thai food in the triangle

I've only had Thai food a couple of times and really enjoyed it, what are some good restaurants in the triangle area?

  1. Thai House in Raleigh is my local favorite. Sawasdee is also much appreciated.

    In RTP, try Thai Lanna.

    1. Agree with Thai Lanna for sure... only been to Sawasdee once, but definitely enjoyed.

      1. My fav in the area is Thai Villa in Cary. Yum!

          I love Lemongrass off of Litchford Road in Raleigh. I eat there at least twice a week. They have a great lunch special for $8. It includes a drink, an appetizer, and and an entree. They offer this deal 7 days a week.

        2. Thai Cafe on University in Durham

              I'll just have to personally disagree with you there.

              1. re: TSQ75

                and I have to personally agree with BryanZ on it not being very good. i think Twisted Noodles wins out as the better Thai restaurant of the two.

                  I'm only familiar with the Thai places on the west end of the Triangle and of those my go-to place is Thai Palace in Chapel Hill.

                  1. re: mikeh

                    i too agree with Bryan Z: twisted noodle is far better. if you are in raleigh sawasdee is my fave.

                    1. re: pheebs

                      i'll put in a third vote for twisted noodle. i don't make it out as far as cary/raleigh, so of the thai places i've tried in durham, definitely #1 twisted noodle, and thai cafe has decent lunch specials but comes in at a distant second.

            2. viva thai in Cary. Very accomodating, always cooked to order and delicious!
