I enjoy it here, it's obviously not the best thai place in the area but it's definitely the most reasonable and probably the best lunch option. Our server was pretty poor to be honest; he only came by whenever he had to, our water was often empty, and he even avoided eye contact when he came by. The food itself is good, but is great if you consider the price; I had the yellow curry with chicken, which came out to about $10, and I had leftovers for lunch the next day. Solid lunch option for sure.
After the sad end of Kabab and Curry, I've been looking for an Indian restaurant with good food at good prices a la carte (I go to Sitar for their buffet but their a la carte menu is kinda pricey). I really liked this place; appreciate the fact that it's family run with the mother in the kitchen and son and daughter helping out waiting tables too. We were the only ones in there (a Tuesday night). Had the mixed appetizer, the vegetable and chicken pakoras were good but not the biggest fan of the samosa. However, all the entrees were awesome and a ton of food too; I had the lamb korma, which was awesome; spicy, falling off the bone, just really good. Friends had the shrimp and chicken curry, both of which were also awesome. Really friendly staff and place too. Definitely plan on coming out again sometime soon.
So we came by on a Saturday night and didn't make any reservations and the place was packed, but they were nice enough to squeeze us in outside. The food is definitely somewhat pricey, but you get a ton of food and definitely will have some to take back. We started out with the mussels, which were pretty good but nothing too spectacular. I had lobster carbonara for my entree, which I really enjoyed; right amount of sauce, really generous with the lobster, and just tasted great. I'd say definitely my favorite place at Southpoint given comparable prices and better quality food. Service was about average.
This place is awesome; when you can't read parts of the menu, then you know it's bound to be authentic and good. I've driven by this place a few times but figured it was time to try it out. I had the 3 taco special where you can pick 3 different tacos and also get rice and beans for 8.50. I had the pastor pork tacos, which were all awesome, especially considering I'm usually not a fan of pork in general. Also, the sauces they have to go with their tacos are great, though honestly you probably wouldn't even need them since the meats really flavorful already. Based on the prices and look of the place, I was expecting to get average food, but this place is awesome! Definitely will go back on a regular basis.
So as a college student, I'm inclined to give the place 5/5 just for pure value for what you pay, but I have so many issues with the service and inconsistency of the food sometimes that I have to bump it down to 3. It's your typical Mongolian style 'build your own' deal, though with less options than I've actually seen at other similar places (where they actually have the spices out so you can make your own mix). Here it's basically pick one of their few mixes, and decide how spicy you want it. I have ordered a 10/10 Spicy, tried one of my friend's bowls who ordered 7/10, and often found theirs spicier. Also, the service is really, really, REALLY poor; when it's busier here, you'll find that the owner will rush you to your table and out as quickly as she can. I'd say go for lunch, since it's good value, and since you need to leave anyways the poor service is fine to deal with.
Durham's got some great Mexican options with awesome value, but I figured it'd be worth it to check Dos Perros out as I had heard some great stuff. Personally, I found the food to be somewhat bland; I had the lamb enchilada for dinner, and at $17 I was definitely expecting it better. The service was great, though; the waitress was really attentive and helped answered some questions I had about the menu. Overall, though, I'd say it's a little on the more expensive side for Durham and you don't really see a return on spending that extra buck. I also have been for lunch, though, and had the chile relleno; that was pretty good. Probably will return for lunch, but I think dinners on the pricier side for the area.
I thought the place was good; I've been looking for a place with seafood with reasonable prices in Durham, and glad to have finally found a place. Service was great; waitress came by every 5 minutes to check-in, refill drinks, etc. Went on a Friday around 7 pm; wasn't packed by any means, but enough people around where it wasn't awkward. Popcorn they serve before the meal wasn't too great, but the rest of the meal was good food for good value. I had fried oysters, generous portion and had some to take back; friend had the fried shrimp platter, also good. definitely a good deal, will go back for sure sometime
