Exquisite Thai Cuisine at Black Thai
In the heart of downtown Myrtle Beach sits a little slice of Thailand at Black Thai Restaurant and Lounge 22.
Located in the trendy Five Points section of Myrtle Beach's downtown district, Black Thai offers a true taste of Asian cuisine in a unique setting. But don't let the name inspired by a formalwear-pun fool you; Black Thai may look fancy but the atmosphere and dress code are come-as-you-please casual.
Black Thai serves both lunch and dinner, and both are surprisingly affordable for the quality of food and quantity of the portions. Lunch specials start at $5.99 and include Thai classics such as Pad Thai, Drunken Noodle and Thai Fried Rice, as well as Asian favorites like Teriyaki Stir Fry and Hot Chili Garlic. Dishes can be ordered mild, medium or spicy to satisfy taste buds of all temperatures.
Dinner specials start at $9.99 and the long list includes larger versions of the lunch options plus other favorites like Pad Sei Ewe, Asian Curry Noodle and Garlic Basil Thai. The special board also includes dishes utilizing six different flavors of curry, including the popular Panang and Black Thai.
Diners have the flexibility of choosing between chicken, beef, pork, fish, shrimp and more to match the vegetable and rice or noodle combinations, and vegetarians can substitute tofu for meat. In fact, Black Thai caters to vegetarians and healthy eaters with a full line of creative dinner selections.
Try the Perfect Pineapple, Ginger Ecstacy or Sweet & Sour Paradise, as well as other meat-free soups, salads and starters. Using fresh ingredients and an array of herbs and spices, Black Thai also offers a diverse number of stir fry blends and the steak and duck entrees get rave reviews from fans.
For those looking for a liquid lunch or drinks with dinner, Lounge 22 offers a full juice bar for fresh-squeezed concoctions as well as an extensive selection of beers, wines and mixed drinks. The luxurious but laid-back Lounge 22 attracts a nice after-dinner crowd and a limited late-night menu.
Black Thai is located at 710 Main Street in downtown Myrtle Beach. For more information or hours of operation, call 843-916-8424.
