7 Delicious Thai Food Restaurants In Asheville
One of the newer Thai food restaurants in Asheville (2020), Thai Pearl is gorgeous inside and absolutely delicious.
Thai Pearl is also perfect if you are looking for gluten-free friendly options around AVL.
Located near other equally fabulous West AVL restaurants like Nine Mile and Jargon, choose from curries, rice, stir-fry dishes, soups, and Thai salads. Thai Pearl also serves fresh oysters.
Notably, Chef May trained and cooked at The Royal Palace in Bangkok, Thailand. Be sure to order her addicting Thai onion rings and a green papaya salad.
Full disclosure that Thai Pearl originally invited us out for meals on-the-house since we hadn’t been yet. Ummm, we might never leave now. We frequently return.
The food is so fresh, and the service is amazing.
Chef May stole our hearts with how much she cares about the community, her family and the community in Thailand, and her staff.
West Asheville is full of shops, bars, coffee joints, and vibrant murals.
Thai Pearl Contact Information: 747 Haywood Road Asheville, NC 28806 | (828) 412-5905
DTK Thai Kitchen is a more of a hidden and divey Thai restaurant in Asheville, sitting in the northern part of the city on Merrimon Ave.
We prefer Thai Kitchen for no-frills takeout. The food is simple, not overly spiced, and feels a tad lighter than the other restaurants on this list.
Thai Kitchen features your traditional noodles – Pad Thai, Pad See Ew, Pad Woon Sen, and Drunken Noodles – along with apps, soups, stir-fries, and curries.
For Thai food in Asheville, you cannot beat the convenience and price.
DTK Thai Kitchen Contact Information: 535 Merrimon Ave # C, Asheville, NC 28804 | (828) 251-1960

Order and pay at the counter and grab a seat inside or on their small outdoor patio. Boon Choo staff brings out food to you, but you will have to bus your own table.
Boon Choo serves wine, beer, and local cider along with your Thai noodles, fried rice, appetizers, and salads.

Delivery Services For Thai Food In Asheville, NC
Looking for delivery options for your Thai cuisine? These are the two apps that we use the most:
North Carolina has its own takeout app and delivery service, Takeout Central. Download the free app, and you’ll see all of the areas and restaurants they serve, including Asheville.
Like other food apps, place your order in the app, add a payment method, and drop any notes for the restaurant or driver.
Along with Takeout Central, we also use GrubHub. Sometimes they have slightly different menus — even though the restaurant is the same — and/or they service different establishments.
You can also use Uber Eats, Kickback AVL, and DoorDash, but we mostly rely on Takeout Central and GrubHub for our Asheville Thai food delivery options.
