Thai cuisine is intense and complicated, like the reasons your uncle is staying with us for a while. Make room for this Groupon.
Singha II Thai Bistro
Though the low-lit amber tones of its dining room create a darkly romantic atmosphere, Singha II Thai Bistro has nothing to hide. In a surprisingly gutsy move, the owners opened a message board on the bistro's website and gave diners free reign to speak their minds. The resulting forum crackles with tips (the chefs keep a stockpile of habanero peppers if you like your curry spicy), recommendations (Mike is a fan of the shrimp with cilantro sauce), and a panoply of plaudits (including "best thai food in nc"). Though the authentic Thai menu features a handful of signature dishes, you probably won't go wrong with the roasted duck basil. The boneless crispy fowl flavored with garlic, chilis, and fresh basil leaves seems to be a real crowd-pleaser.
What some people are buzzing about:
“Best Pad Thai in this area.... (That is what I use to compare Thai restaurants with - and this one is TOPS! Tom Yum, and other dishes are equally great...”
“Awesome food and service!!”
“We like #401 and #405”
