A 26-seat jewel-box-sized restaurant in Holly Springs, Thai Thai Cuisine serves authentic Thai cuisine with colossal flavors. Owner Jirawan Pavapotago from Thailand prepares each dish to order in her modest-sized kitchen.
Customers are treated to various attractions, including the house specialty—and Lunchboy favorite—drunken noodle. This mouth-watering stir-fried entrée includes your choice of tofu, beef, chicken or shrimp with wide rice noodles, egg, onions, carrots, red peppers and broccoli, topped with Thai gravy sauce and basil leaves.
Another crowd pleaser: the Thai Thai sampler, featuring steamed soybeans, spring rolls, summer fresh roll, shrimp in a blanket, tofu triangle and chicken satay.
Save room for dessert, as fried banana, Thai custard or mango with sticky rice will surely hit your sweet spot.
The restaurant’s decor tends toward elephant-themed wall hangings, and usually a single waitress capably handles her responsibilities with grace and enthusiasm.
Thai Thai is located in a sleepy business complex somewhat out of sight from passersby, so you’ll want to lock in the address into your GPS device. The restaurant is open for lunch and dinner daily.
