Curries, stir-fried noodles, fried rice, plus whatever Thai classic is on order, this Richardson eatery serves up some of DFW's finest iterations of these favorites. Feeling more adventurous?

Royal Thai

A Lower Greenville fixture since 1992, Royal Thai is a great choice for pad thai, satay, and curry. The portions are generous, the prices are perfectly reasonable, and the shrimp & pork tulip dumplings should definitely find a regular spot in any solid take-out rotation. Currently open for delivery, curbside pickup and takeout.

Sabaidee Lao & Thai Street Food

Copy Link

Serving both Lao and Thai fare, in three going on four locations in DFW, Sabadee is the exact opposite of a trendy Asian fusion spot. The pad thai is one of the city’s best iterations of the dish, and the spicy basil chicken leaves the mouth burning in the best way possible. Be warned: ordering spice level 5 (a.k.a. Sabaidee spicy) is not for the faint of heart. Available for carryout or delivery via Chownow or by calling each location directly.

Si Lom Thai Asian Fusion

Copy Link

Oak Lawn dwellers know about and treasure Si Lom, which is hidden slightly below street level off Oak Lawn north of Cedar Springs. The small, dimly lit spot offers excellent Thai takeout, and their black sticky rice with mango should not be missed. The restaurant offers free delivery for orders over $30; order at silomdallas.com.

To-go orders get a 10% discount, or order up delivery via Uber Eats, DoorDash, Favor, and Post Mates. Temporary hours are 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday.
