With distinct, authentic-flavor dishes and attentive service, Thai Luang in Herndon offers its customers a royal dining experience similar to that of Thai king and queen. The restaurant, which is named after Thailand's royality, is located at 171 Elden Steet in a commercial complex across from the Elden Plaza. My goal is to serve authentic food. People say, we have the best food outside Thailand. One of my restaurant's many renowned dishes is the Crispy Duck, which is specially prepared by the chef. The whole seasoned duck is steamed for three hours and then cut into halves and de-boned before being deep fried. Before serving, the duck is cut into small pieces and cooked with chili sauce, garlic, sweet basil, and garnished with fresh red chili. The authentic dish preserves tenderness and tastiness of the duck but without the grease that often accompanies the meat. People drive from Baltimore and Maryland to eat our Duck. Besides the comparatively known Thai Satay appetizer, a combination of pork, beef and chicken on skewers served with freshly crushed peanut sauce, the restaurant's Ka-Nom Jeep also contributes to its authentic reputation. Unlike some dumplings that fill your mouth with grease and thick, plain wrapping, Ka-Nom Jeep is prepared steamed with thin, slightly seasoned wrapping that is stuffed with ground pork, black mushrooms and parsley roots. Another authentic feature is Pad Thai, traditional Thai rice noodle.
My husband and I discovered this restaurant when a neighbor mentioned it. We have fallen in love with it. Even our teenage kids love it. The service is friendly and attentive, even at busy times. The food is consistently good and the overall experience very postitive.
I just have three words to say, lousy, lousy, and lousy. The mussel appeztizer was TERRIBLE. The mussels were huge and as tough as tires. The dumplings were too spicy for my daughter, and the Larb Gai was dry. My Chicken Ka Pow was a boiled chicken dish sprinkled with red pepper flakes with some jalapenos added and swimming a some type of tomato broth.
We will never be going back here again. What a waste of time and money.
I agree with Vik. We went to Thai Luang last night for dinner and the wait staff was very rude. They did not want to put two tables together to accomodate us, they said they had to save the tables. The restaurant was over half empty so I am not sure what they were saving them for.
Next they brought out extra items we did not order, ignored our requests for various items and started to clear our food off the table before we were finished.
On top of that, they added an 18% tip to our check. Not to worry, this was our first and last time visiting this restaurant. We will be going back to Busara in Tyson's Corner next time we want great Thai food!
After reading great reviews about this place, we went to have dinner at Thai Luang last month. The service was so poor that they didn't refill our water/soda for the entire time. The place was crowded and the waitress had an attitude when we requested hot sauce????????The food wasn't great either however even it would have been fantastic I would have sworn that I am not going back there. Anyone who would expect good service while paying $35 for a dinner would benefit from reading this review.
Friendly and attentive staff, nice decor, and good food. I have only eaten here once so far. I had the yellow curry; the potatoes we overcooked and the chicken was not very tender. However, the taste of the curry was fine, and the portion was generous. The spice is hotter than many Thai restaurants, so be careful of American or Thai hot levels.
If you want fantastic, authentic Thai food, in a wonderful family-owned restaurant AND even at a great price, Thai Luang is the place to go.
A huge menu, full bar and awesome service, this is a phenomenal Thai restaurant. Get there early on the weekends or at lunchtime, since they fill up FAST.
Only problem??? It's hard to find the place!
