The Almost-Final Tour, Part 5: Top Thai

Thai (Restaurant) of Norcross: Norcross, GA, USA

This restaurant is not even close to downtown Norcross, GA but closer to Stone Mountain than anything else.  However, it has by far among the best Thai food in Atlanta.  I hadn’t had it in a long time and even though NYC has some amazing Thai food supposedly in Hell’s Kitchen, I wanted to get a little bit of the cheaper but hopefully equally as good, version in Atlanta.  I came here after church with a friend and we ate the following dishes:

  • green papaya salad
  • pad thai, chicken
  • green curry, beef

Green Papaya Salad


  • fantastic quantity: it’s almost an entire dish in and of itself even though it is an appetizer
  • good flavor: not overly salty with fish sauce


  • none

Chicken Pad Thai


  • fantastic quantity: I think each plate easily feeds four, three with leftovers
  • good flavor: not overly sweet
  • noodles are not overcooked
  • not overly greasy, equal distribution of ingredients like scrambled egg.


  • none

Beef Green Curry


  • also good quantity to share, comes with white rice which means more leftovers to take home unless you’re sharing with many people
  • good flavor, not overwhelming with coconut milk like many thai places
  • not too spicy but just the right amount of heat for those who cannot take too much spiciness


  • none

I do recommend coming with a larger party so that the food can be shared easily though.  While me and my friend were starving, we still had some leftover left of the green curry.  Also, you can try more dishes with more people.  All in all:

  • green papaya salad: **** (4 stars)
  • pad thai, chicken: **** (4 stars)
  • green curry, beef: ***.85 (3.85 stars)

They can be found in Tucker, GA near Jimmy Carter Blvd in “Norcross”:

6065 S Norcross Tucker Rd, Norcross, GA 30093

Definitely drive there for the food, it’s worth it!
