If you need to pick up dinner for a movie night at home, Thai Fresh is the best Thai takeout in Charlottesville. It’s incredibly affordable in comparison to other Thai places in the area, with all entrees costing $6.00 each. Appetizers are under $4 and include Thai Spring Rolls, Fried Wontons, Gyoza, and Khanom Jeeb (Thai Dumplings).
