All the favorites- spring rolls, thai tea, curries- are here but it is not over the top special. The decor is pretty nice! Not a fancy place.

We have never had a bad meal here. The service is very fast, and the food always hot and tasty. It is great to reorder the favourites and add a new dish to try. We can't go here and not get one or two orders...More

The food is quite good and the menu has many things that appeal to me. Service is friendly and you get good value. If I am not in the mood to cook I can find something to eat at Thai Cafe.

Thai Café is always a good choice for a delicious lunch with friends. The food is spicy with great sauces. The lunch menu is nicely priced. Worth a visit and more!

I can not answer this question as I do not drink alcohol. There was a bar area, but do not know the extent of what they serve. I would suggest that you give them a call.919.493.9794.
