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.

Some good some not so. One thing that was good was the servers, they are super nice and quick. Good came out almost to fast. We had Tom Kar Gai soup which was not good. Really salty and boring. By far way down on the tasty list of ok coconut soups which we always get at Thai restaurants. The spring... More

We tried this place on a whim last night and it did not disappoint! The pad thai with chicken was absolutely wonderful! We also tried the green curry, which was tasty, but the pad thai was definitely the star! Highly recommend for thai in Chapel Hill!
