Anchalee Thai is a hidden gem in the middle of a run-down strip mall. Don't be put off by the parking lot though. Once you step inside, you are met with beautiful decor, friendly service, and the best Thai food in Greenville.
Anchalee Thai offers a great selection of vegan appetizers, curries, and stir-fried dishes. This restaurant has several vegetarian and vegan menu items, and others can be made vegan upon request. I like to start out with the veggie tempura, fried tofu, or veggie spring rolls for an appetizer. The curries here are phenomenal, a great blend of flavors and spices, and the veggies are always perfectly cooked. You can go as mild or as spicy as you want. If you are strict vegan or vegetarian, be sure to ask your server for no fish sauce in your dish.
The service here is very knowledgeable and friendly. They make you feel like part of the family. The servers are happy to check on ingredients or make substitutions. I frequently go with a large group of people, and they handle it very well. (Though it might be nice to give them a call ahead of time.) This place works well for a casual family outing, or even a special occasion date night.
While you are in the neighborhood, stop by the Asian market two doors down to stock up on your curry pastes, bulk rice, interesting produce, and other Asian staples.
