Nice family-operated restaurant. I use it more for takeout than eat in, but it's good either way. The service is always fine.

This used to be my go-to Thai duck restaurant. No longer. The Thai duck with basil was terrible. The meat was overcooked and the skin was fatty and flabby. Something as basic as Pad Thai was ruined by dry and over cooked chicken. It was flavorless. What happened to this place?

Went to lunch there the other day and it was very pleasant. Quick fast service and food was good. It is small and very quaint. I will be going back.

We ate here frequently in the early 2000's, came back for visit and food was as wonderful as it was 15 years ago. service was very good and the place filled up so call ahead if you do not want to wait. The duck with sweet basil was outstanding.

Trust me that they don't mess around when it comes to spice!! If you order something with 4 peppers you'd better be ready.

Thai Luang has been in Herndon for a long time; I first went there around 1999. IT is family owned (as I recall, the Sister owns this restaurant, and her brother opened a different spot in Herndon). The restaurant is cozy; they serve thai beer, have a full bar. The food is always excellent - and spicy unless you ask... More

The family staff is really great. The food never disappoints. A family member turned me on to this place after having spent a couple of years in Thailand. They said it was the best around and who am I to argue. The crispy duck is my all-time favorite. I have tried most of the salads and soups. Love the drunken... More

Decided to try this restaurant based on the high reviews on TripAdvisor. The restaurant is in a strip mall complex. There are two large dining areas and a full-size bar. Ordered the Papaya Salad and Pad Thai dishes. The salad was okay except for the mini-shrimp that tasted like they were cooked to death - hard and not juicy. The... More
