Came here for date night recently. If just passing by you would not believe this was a restaraunt. It is located in an old trailer and the decor is very unique but gives the Thai ambiance. There is always only one waitress and the cook who is the owner. One of few restaraunts you are able to smoke at which... More

Great food, great service, and unique environment. I had the Crying Tiger meal. The waitress was nice enough to let me know it's different than normal steak and it's not for everyone. I tried it anyway and it was amazing. The egg rolls are also possibly the best I've had.

This place is very different and unique. It has that fantastic, Thailand décor that doesn't quiet match but comes together just like what you would imagine a Thailand market restaurants looks like. I stopped by here a few times for decent pad Thai meals and drinks. It seems to be one of the last refuges for those who like to... More

Waitress was very pleaseant however, I ordered the "Grilled chicken curry" and the chicken was tough and rubbery! Tried one bite and had to spit it out when I told the waitress about the issue she immediately said I need to speak to her aunt who was apparently the owner... This extremely confrontational woman approaches our table and starts telling... More

Traveling from NC to TX, we were craving Thai food. We trusted all the good reviews and went to Faraway Places. It did not disappoint. Yes, it looks and feels like a dive, but when you pull up and local police are eating there, you know it's bound to be good. I would absolutely go there again.

Hmmm... Place is bizarre... First of all it's in a trailer.... A scary trailer. Looks like people live in vans around property. The food is pretty good, the wait is sooooo long. The drinks are expensive ... They poured wine out of a box and charged me $7!! Sometimes they add tax to beer... Sometimes they don't. Very creamy and... More

Good Thai food in a unique setting. Liked the pickled something-or-other in the pad thai. I thought the carrot salad was just okay but my companion liked it quite a lot. Absolutely worth going just for the experience, and the food makes it better yet.

Been there several times. Good food, great atmosphere and cool decoration (walls are covered with old posters, etc.) Small area with couches to relax, warm welcoming staff and large portions. I recommend it.

Small hole in the wall atmosphere was nice, but even expecting Americanized Thai food, this was too much; the predominant taste of my dish was oregano and the meat was ground beef.
