Best Thai Restaurants In Winston-Salem

Personally, I am a huge Thai food fan. Ever since my backpacking trip through the country in 2001 I’ve been hooked on their tasty cuisine, with a particular propensity for curries. When I first moved to Winston in 2004 I immediately went on the search for good Thai food. The best (and most affordable at the time) was Downtown Thai. I’m not saying it’s not the best anymore (it’s definitely not the most affordable anymore), but you’ve got a lot more options now.
