Pad Thai near Burlington/Greensboro

My daughter is a freshman at Elon. We're going to visit her in October. Pad Thai is her favorite food. Is there good Pad Thai within 30-40 minutes of Elon?

Thanks for your help!

  1. It's been a while since I went but I've enjoyed Taste of Thai:

    If you go, let me know if you liked it.

    1. there is taste of thai, rearn thai on west market in greensboro and pho hien vong on spring garden which features vietnamese and thai dishes. All within a 30 min drive of elon

        Thanks for the information. Do you have favorites among those?

        1. re: blk616

          rearn thai and pho hien vong on spring garden. I rarely get pad thai but their other thai dishes are good. If conversation is important skip rearn thai. Their beautiful new location is an echo chamber

      2. 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.
