My husband and I chose Emerald while visiting Williamsburg. The owner is very friendly and gracious. We ordered the veggie tempura appetizer and it was delicious. I got the chicken pad Thai with extra vegetables and my husband got a curry dish. Both were solidly good meals and great portions. I would have given 4 stars but the food was... More

This place is a bit isolated, but not difficult to find, and the trip from where we are staying was well worth the drive. The fresh rolls with peanut sauce were excellent. The pad Thai with chicken was also very good, not the best Ihave ever had, but very good nonetheless. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Water and tea... More

One of very few Local thai restaurants in Williamsburg. Great tasting spicy Asian food. I just wanted a salad so I had the Yum Woonsen salad with glass noodles, onion, spicy chicken and a large shrimp. Blended with their lime dressing, it is delious. Serving was small, but adequate since I am trying to diet anyway.

Found this version of Thai food very bland without flavors. The building obviously has suffered from roof issues as evidenced by water damage and mold. Smell of bug spray very evident. Not worthy of return visit

We go to this wonderful restaurant at least every month or more because of the customer service, experience, environment, and delicious food!! It's very beautiful inside and it's fun having lunch or dinner watching gorgeous sea life. We always have Thai tea with our meal and have tried many different items on the menu. Everything has been consistently excellent!!!

This is the oldest Thai restaurant in Williamsburg. It is away from the downtown features, like Colonial Williamsburg, but close to Busch Gardens. I like the curry dishes here.

Not authentic Thai. The food was just ordinary stir fry and not that great. The place was clean and the service was good. The prices were not very expensive.
