Getting a table for 7 near a college on graduation day can be a real challenge. The staff at Emerald Thai Cuisine went above beyond to accommodate us. We ordered family style and were not disappointed. We ordered a variety of dishes from the Massaman curry to the fresh garlic, basil with tofu drunken noodles with spicy chicken. Everything was...

This delightful restaurant and it's wonderful owner are always my first stop when I hit town. She knows my preferred wine and dinner preferences. The curries and Tom Yum soup are my favorites. Highly recommend!

This was our first visit but not our last. Food was very good however the restaurant was very cold and uncomfortable, It was low 30's outside and I would guess high 50's to low 60's inside. Staff had a small floor heater blowing on table next to us when we entered and placed between our table and theirs after we... More

My husband and I chose Emerald while visiting Williamsburg. The owner is very friendly and gracious. We ordered the veggie tempura appetizer and it was delicious. I got the chicken pad Thai with extra vegetables and my husband got a curry dish. Both were solidly good meals and great portions. I would have given 4 stars but the food was... More

This place is a bit isolated, but not difficult to find, and the trip from where we are staying was well worth the drive. The fresh rolls with peanut sauce were excellent. The pad Thai with chicken was also very good, not the best Ihave ever had, but very good nonetheless. Service was attentive without being intrusive. Water and tea... More

One of very few Local thai restaurants in Williamsburg. Great tasting spicy Asian food. I just wanted a salad so I had the Yum Woonsen salad with glass noodles, onion, spicy chicken and a large shrimp. Blended with their lime dressing, it is delious. Serving was small, but adequate since I am trying to diet anyway.

Found this version of Thai food very bland without flavors. The building obviously has suffered from roof issues as evidenced by water damage and mold. Smell of bug spray very evident. Not worthy of return visit

We go to this wonderful restaurant at least every month or more because of the customer service, experience, environment, and delicious food!! It's very beautiful inside and it's fun having lunch or dinner watching gorgeous sea life. We always have Thai tea with our meal and have tried many different items on the menu. Everything has been consistently excellent!!!
