The Thai Room Restaurant Review

: The energetic owner of this Outer Banks culinary landmark not only knows his regular clientele by name, but also their favorite dishes and beverages. It's all in the family, so feel comfortable asking questions about the lengthy Thai menu. Just remember when ordering that “Thai hot” is in a world all by itself, so you may want to order spicy dishes "mild." Favorites include the Thai Room soup (chicken, coconut milk and Thai spices); the only true pad thai on the beach; and chicken, shrimp or pork curries. Although a number of dishes are geared toward American tastes, the laab with ground pork, lime juice and Thai spices; the lemon grass soup; and the Crying Tiger are all authentic. An exotic drink or bottle of Singha beer sipped amidst the Thai décor will definitely whisk your thoughts off the beach for awhile.
