Pad Thai is in a converted old train station, and if you didn't get a recommendation from a friend, you would probably pass it by. And what a loss that would be! The food here is the real deal! It is owned and run every day by a Thai family. The portions are generous, the food is delicious, and the... More

We were staying in the area and decided to try something other than the chain eateries. Glad we did! Don't be fooled by the appearance. They have a very small dining room but the service is fast and friendly. The drunken noodles were a great choice for me. Will definitely go back if we're in the area again.

If you love or just like Thai food this is the place to come. The food is great and prices are good. All of the people are friendly and the service is quick.

The food is consistently fresh and delicious. The family who runs it is very welcoming. One of the best Thai places in greater Richmond and the best one in Hanover County. One odd note: if you get takeout, you seem to get significantly more food.

I have been to this restaurant twice. Once last year and again this past August 2016. We went for dinner and it was crowded, but we got seated right away. We had the soup and it was tasty. The waiter asks you how much spice you want in your meals. The main course was a curry one and that was... More

Excellent food and service. The building is more in an industrial area are parking can be tough. Worth it though. Haven't had a bad meal there yet.My daughter loves the vegetarian soup and I love the drunken noodle.

They are usually busy, but we have never had to wait for service. My favorite is The Drunken Noodle. My wife likes the Mussemum Curry. Note they are only open for carry out on Sunday's.

Don't expect fancy storefront, this restaurant is on Meadowbridge Road about 1/4 mile from Atlee Road, but the Food is SOOO good, Drunken Noodles us one of my favorites,not fancy, owner is there everyday, but great food and service, not a lot of tables, so there might be a wait on weekends, but totally worth it
