With distinct, authentic-flavor dishes and attentive service, Thai Luang in Herndon offers its customers a royal dining experience similar to that of Thai king and queen.
The restaurant, which is named after Thailand's royality, is located at 171 Elden Steet in a commercial complex across from the Elden Plaza.
My goal is to serve authentic food. People say, we have the best food outside Thailand. One of my restaurant's many renowned dishes is the Crispy Duck, which is specially prepared by the chef. The whole seasoned duck is steamed for three hours and then cut into halves and de-boned before being deep fried. Before serving, the duck is cut into small pieces and cooked with chili sauce, garlic, sweet basil, and garnished with fresh red chili. The authentic dish preserves tenderness and tastiness of the duck but without the grease that often accompanies the meat. People drive from Baltimore and Maryland to eat our Duck. Besides the comparatively known Thai Satay appetizer, a combination of pork, beef and chicken on skewers served with freshly crushed peanut sauce, the restaurant's Ka-Nom Jeep also contributes to its authentic reputation. Unlike some dumplings that fill your mouth with grease and thick, plain wrapping, Ka-Nom Jeep is prepared steamed with thin, slightly seasoned wrapping that is stuffed with ground pork, black mushrooms and parsley roots. Another authentic feature is Pad Thai, traditional Thai rice noodle.
