Vieng Thai

6929 Long Point Rd. Houston, TX 77055 | Outer Loop - NW | 713-688-9910

Location Description:

Vieng Thai, Houston's most authentic Thai restaurant, is a humble mom-and-pop operation in the Long Point area with scuffed concrete floors and a blaring wide-screen TV. But its fiery soups, slippery noodles, incendiary curries and tart Thai salads blow the city's fancier Thai restaurant fare away.
