Thai Palace is my favorite Thai restaurant in the Durham/Chapel Hill area because I finally found some delicious Pad Si-Io ("Pad See Ew") in this area. My food was delicious, well-prepared, a perfect temperature, a treat for my palate. I ate with a very large group of people attending a friend's birthday dinner, and it seemed to me that everybody...

Love the pad Thai as well as Mongolia beef. We have been going there for 20 years. Sometimes call ahead for carryout after a busy day.

Ordered takeout. The pad thai was bland, just tasted like noodles. The tom yum gai was supposed to be spicy but it just tasted like lime water.

Stopped by this Thai restaurant for lunch. Service was prompt but not overly friendly. The food was excellent - we had the Thai beef salad and the Pad See Ew. The cococnut ice cream soothed the spicy beef entire. This restaurant is worth a repeat visit for dinner to see how they handle a more crowded scene.

We liked it so much the first time we brought friends and relations and went again :) We have only been for supper, and I highly recommend it! It is NOT inexpensive, but is worth every penny. The steak, in particular, is perhaps the best steak I have ever had anywhere. Not what you think of going to a Thai... More

The service and place was nice. Very clean and quiet. Fair prices. Tables are too close and not cozy enough for my liking. The salad dressing was my favorite thing. Food was good but not great. While there are no strong complaints, it's just not a favorite.

I used to come here often when the restaurant first opened years ago - food was first rate and used to have authentically prepared dishes like stuffed chicken wing and homemade coconut ice cream, and their curries out of this world. However, the recent visits showed the changes for the worse: (1) While the service was efficient, it was less... More

This is a truly fabulous Thai restaurant! Do NOT come if you want "fast" food - they cook each item after you order it, so settle in for a wonderfully delicious leisurely meal of food cooked just for you! My husband got the dumpling appetizers to share with my brother, and they both inhaled them! My brother also got the... More

My partner and I eat here several times a year and find it to be VERY consistent. The service is friendly and prompt. Seems that the same great people are always working (maybe family members). I drink huge amounts of ice water and my glass is always kept topped up! Plenty of well lit FREE parking. Always a plus in... More

The Thai Palace is a nice place to eat. The food is always good and the service is good and low key. There are spaces to accommodate varying numbers of diners from an intimate twosome to a larger gathering. A place to count on for good food.
