Lime Leaf is the best Thai food we have ever eaten, and we make it a point to eat Thai food in every city and country we visit. The fresh veggies, meats, seafood are seasoned to perfection. One can order mild to extra hot and when it comes to the table, it's exactly what you ordered. The service is both... More

Hadn't had Thai food before but my son wanted to take a group there. Everyone seemed very pleased with their food choices. I had Peanut Sauce with Shrimp. You can get almost any dish with your choice of meat. The price was reasonable (for Charlottesville) and food was tasty. Some other reviews point out the small portions, but I found... More

Service was excellent. Food was good. Ambiance was pleasant. The green curry could have used more eggplant.

Love this place. Charlottesville has some really good This restaurants. What I love about Lime Leaf is they use fresh vegetables and a bigger variety than most of the other Thai restaurants. Also the staff has been there a long time and they are consistently good.

We had never tried Thai food before. Really enjoyed our meal. The servers were friendly and attentive. The spring roll appetizer was good. We ordered sweet and sour shrimp and pork fried rice, both were delicious and generous portions.

Twenty-First Century travel is great. You can forget the road signs and use your iPhone or your car's GPS, if it includes restaurant searches. Lime Leaf was chosen that way. Because I've now eaten at many Thai restaurants, I'd have to say this one is average. I've also eaten here before. Today four of us are here. The portions are... More

First the restaurant is decorated very nice. The wait staff are friendly, and the food is average for Thai cuisine. The policy of the restaurant need some restructure. I ordered a coke with my meal, the beverage was under carbonated, no big deal, so I wanted to switch to a different soda. I was told no. Soda refills are free,... More

Best place for Tai. Friendly and accommodating. Anything can be ordered with custom options (extra vegetables, meat or combination) in any level of heat. Just ask.

I drive to C'Ville for lunch at the Lime Leaf! One of my favorite Thai/Asian fusion restaurants. Very approachable menu with "safe" choices for less adventurous diners. the heat level in definitely western so if you like hot, ask for it hot! No need to hold back. Mid priced entrees. The best Thai coffee I have had outside of Thailand.... More

Heat intensity of Thai food varies dramatically from restaurant to restaurant. I think I was overly cautious and should have gone for more heat. The red curry was thin and somewhat bland. Liked the spring rolls. Appreciated the option for brown rice. Good service.
