Black Thai Review
The Grand Strand is filled with many different types of cuisine but Thai is not one of them. Black Thai is one of the few Thai restaurants in the area. Although there aren’t many choices Black Thai makes up for the missing number with its quality cuisine. Black Thai is not only a restaurant but an upscale lounge as well, which is why we think it’s one of the best Myrtle Beach Thai restaurants.
The food prepared at Black Thai was not only delicious but proportional. I experienced the Pad Thai with chicken, Panang Curry Island, and the Tom Yum Kung. Each dish was beautiful, vibrant, and intoxicating. The sauces used in each dish are homemade; they are slightly spicy but not so much that it detracts from the overall meal. For desert I had a 2 scoops of their homemade ice cream; butter pecan and coconut.
Black Thai offers a happy hour special on drinks from 4pm – 6pm. They also have drink specials at select times/days of the week. They offer the standard domestic/imports of alcohol, but also have a few house drinks that are made to order. I experienced a few of their unique drinks just for fun and they were very flavorful and delicious.
Black Thai has a very relaxing atmosphere. As you walk in you are greeted with low tone music that is very soothing and easy to enjoy. The décor is a perfect match with the modern Thai theme. The front restaurant area is well lit by a huge window allowing you to have a view of the outside. Following the narrow hall to the lounge you’re greeted with a full service bar, couches,and TV’s showing the latest news/sports.
The service at Black Thai was great considering there is only one waitress. My glass was never empty and I was always asked if everything was enjoyable. The waitress came to check in around every 10 – 15 minutes. The manager also came out to make sure the food was perfect and to converse for a short time.
Black Thai is a great value simply because of the quality of food, everything else is icing on the cake so to speak. The food and drinks are reasonably priced and exactly what you would expect from an upscale restaurant.
Black Thai was enjoyable, the food was delicious and filling, and the atmosphere was a nice change of pace. Black Thai is a refreshing experience that shouldn’t be passed whether you’re just visiting or you’re a resident. The staff and food are top quality and the location is perfect for almost everyone around. Black Thai also offers a carry-out service, so for those that don’t want to eat-in; you can call ahead and pick your food up to enjoy anywhere. So come check out one of the best Myrtle Beach Thai restaurants.
