We were visiting Boone on vacation, and this family-owned restaurant was recommended to us. Ever since my favorite local Thai place closed, I have been craving good, authentic panang. I found it here. And it was SO. GOOD. There are no frills here. I ordered panang, and I got panang and a side of rice. No appetizer salad, nothing on... More

Have been multiple times and the food is always great. Always fresh vegetables, spicing is just right. Great Pad Thai. The hot pot soups are great, plenty for 2-3 people. Nice Wine and Beer selection. Service is pleasant, Will be back each time in the high country.

I had high hopes and had heard good things, but this place was a dud. We had three meals - duck, fish & chicken dishes - and none were worth taking the leftovers home. The fish tasted freezer burned, the duck was chewy and the chicken arrived with the ubiquitous brown sauce you might expect to find at a strip... More

Awesome food...great service...attentive staff. Authentic Thai recipes. Nice atmosphere. Unsure what to order, just ask...servers are more than helpful to explain dishes.

Loved this place. Sat in the front end of the restaurant. Ordered appetizers, soup for two and dinner. My husband loved the pot soup. I thought it was okay. We loved our Thai lettuce leaf appetizer and would probably get it every time we visited if we lived in the area. Our meals were hot (spicy and hot), portions more... More

Ate here all the time while in school and after four years, it's still got it. Love the decor. Food is always delicious and comes quickly. Boone needs more ethnic food but until that happens cha da Thai is a really great choice!

Very nice outdoor seating and unbelievably reasonably priced menu. The lunch special was $5.95 which also included either a soup or salad. The staff were so nice and friendly. We really enjoyed our visit here. Highly recommended!

I totally wanted to love this place for several reasons. One is my husband and I love Thai food and eat it every chance we get. There also isn't a lot of Thai food options in Boone, so we were excited when we found Cha Da Thai. We went for lunch, and were happy to be seated immediately, despite the... More

A great Boone gem, wonderful world class Thai right in downtown! I HIGHLY recommend going for lunch, the lunch menu is around $6 and leaves you super full!
