I live in Burlington. There's a decent Thai place called Simply Thai within 5 minutes near the Elon campus. If your daughter can find her way to Fat Frogg's, you'll find Simply Thai - it's on the other end of the shopping block.
Dan Thai used to be on Church Street, and it was good, but they've since closed and reopened as Thai Similun. Haven't been there yet.
If you do make the trek up to Greensboro, Taste of Thai is our favorite.
Drop me a line. I'll be happy to share with you and your daughter some of the better places to eat in town. My wife and I like to eat out, it's just become tricky lately with the kids.
