Koung Thai: Every Dish Crafted According to Family Recipes

Thai restaurants are a dime a dozen around Rockwall, but not every kitchen team can say they use recipes that have been handed down through countless generations—like the chefs at Koung Thai can. At this Thai restaurant, family recipes guide the authentic and inventive dishes you see on the menu.

From curries to noodles, fried rice dishes to egg rolls, everything at Koung Thai consists of fresh, high-quality ingredients. So if you aren’t sure where to begin when choosing a dish, start in the House Special section. It showcases some of the best eats at Koung Thai, like the crispy duck, fish curry, and Koung Thai seafood special—a blend of shrimp, squid, mussels, scallops, and imitation crab with Thai chili paste and Thai basil. Save room for an exotic dessert too, like the mango and sweet sticky rice or coconut ice cream.
