Born & raised in southern Thailand, Piya inherited the Thai focus on food - to Thais even being a little hungry is considered an emergency! Piya travelled extensively in Thailand learning regional specialities as she went, before taking her skills to England, where she extended her repertoire to include the best of European cooking. Here she met her husband James, before they both moved to the USA in 2008, for what was supposed be just be a couple of years..

We always enjoy Thaiverse. The staff is so friendly and accommodating, the food fresh and delicious, and the ambiance comfy and pleasing. It's our go-to in Middleburg.

Outstanding food, service, and atmosphere at Thaiverse. The staff was friendly and helpful with our orders. They very carefully made sure that vegetable substitutions were done to everyone in the party’s satisfaction. The dishes were skillfully prepared and elegantly presented. The food was outstanding in that flavors were fresh and ample, but not overwhelming, in portion size. The homemade curry that was used in the Penang curry was delightful and the Pad Char was a lovely combination of spice, sweet, and heat. Get the sticky toffee pudding with coconut ice cream for dessert. OMG!!

Went for a birthday. Great service, delicious food. Ordered the Tom yum w/out meat, and spicy vegetable dumplings. The rest of the party ordered drunken noodles, ginger stir fry, and fried rice (fantastic).

The stick toffee pudding was brilliant with the coconut ice cream! I will definitely be back again.

Thanks for a great dining experience.

Delicious lunch for two. We shared the duck pancake appetizer. We have had it before and order it every time we go to Thaiverse. My husband had a dish that he was very pleased with. I ordered cashew chicken. It was flavorful, abundant with fresh vegetables, and spicy to my liking. The service was excellent. We like to dine there at off hours due to Covid. We had a very private table and were seated away from other guests who were dining there. Always a pleasure. We will certainly return.

Food was good, although flavor was a bit different than expected. Service was very slow, but they were somewhat busy and really understaffed (probably co vid staffing shortage related)

One of if not the best authentic Thai restaurants around! Great food, great service, and a good variety on the menu so there is something for everyone - beef, chicken, fish, and shellfish dishes with numerous Thai sauces and cooking styles. Definitely will be back!

Aromas and deliciousness just kept on coming - so fresh with beautiful visual brightened our day.
The shrimp was cooked to perfection. What a pleasure our meal was - thank you so much.

Service was weak. Food was overall good. Meal to long to be served and then the dishes came out separately...ultimately they forgot my wife's meal and had to be reminded. The waiter filed water glasses once and never asked if we wanted another type of beverage.

First time to Thaiverse and we know it won't be our last.
Nice & very clean restaurant. Service was very friendly and helpful...sensed there was a little confusion about our drink order but our food came out quickly and followed by our drinks. The Chicken Tikka Masala, Chicken Kra Praw Fried Rice, and Sticky Toffee Pudding were all very tasty and we would order the same meal again.

In Middleburg for a quick getaway - Thaiverse was recommended by our hotel (Salamander) and a shop owner we talked to… A short walk from the hotel and we found a hidden gem. A converted house is the unique setting with different rooms serving as the bar and dining areas, providing lots of space during COVID. (Servers all work masks - we felt very comfortable.) We were greeted by a very friendly staff member (Jason) who was also our server - he was delightful, very engaging and knowledgeable about the menu. We had the Thai Mule cocktails (delish) and they were so good we each had a second). We had the chicken and spicy vegetable dumplings as a starter. For the main we had a Penang Curry and the Ka Praw (Thai chiles and green beans) - the entrees were outstanding, very authentic, light and delicious. They got the spice level just right - we ordered Thai spicy and both were perfect, just hot enough without overpowering the flavor. For dessert, the banana fritters and they were also delicious. The owner stopped by our table as we were wrapping up, very personable and interesting. The food, the service, the quaint location were all outstanding and such a wonderful surprise. We will come back!!!

James does a great job. Place was very busy at 8:00 PM on a cold, windy night in Middleburg. Usually the Burg is deserted after 5:30 so that says something about the popularity of the restaurant, In spite of that, our service was great as was the food, Nice to have a place where the decibels are not so high one cannot hear one's dining partners.

We ordered and enjoyed four different, uniformly excellent Thai dinners. Restaurant was pleasant, with an interesting hedge maze entry. Tables were acceptably distanced, although conversations could be easily heard from adjacent tables. Menu was extensive and offered a wide variety of choice - both in dish characteristics, spiciness, and protein choice. Decent selection of wines and craft cocktails.

I waited for 10-15 minutes before someone seated us to our table. We arrived at noon (well after they opened for the day), and there were already two tables seated before we came. Yet no one came to greet us even though the door chimed loudly our arrival - we had to call out and wave to the cooks at the back for someone to finally come out. I found the service lacking from the start.

I had the pad char which advertised itself to be an eggplant dish but had less than one tiny eggplant (4/6 of a baby eggplant the size of large gumball). When we complained, the server did not seem to understand our issue. He told us he would let the chef know, that it was a new dish, he did not know if it should have more eggplant, even when we pointed out to him the description of the dish on the menu - “Southern Thai style stir-fried chili paste with onions, Thai eggplant, Chinese ginger (Finger root) hot pepper, kaffir lime leaves and Thai basil.” We got basically ground chicken, a lot of onions and some green beans and red bell peppers (both were not even in the description of the dish and yet there were more green beans and red bell peppers than eggplant). If we ordered the dish without meat, we probably get pretty much only onions (!).

Disappointing meal (in that I did not get what I ordered) and bad service (indifferent and slow).

We were visiting Middleburg and wanted to try Thaiverse for our anniversary. We love Thai food and they exceeded our expectations! My husband had the Chili Basil dish and he’s rather picky, he looooved it! I had the Panang Chicken Curry and it was perfectly seasoned. The portions were just right and the service was great! We can’t wait to visit again.

This was an absolutely putrid experience. Came to the area for a long weekend with friends and pick this restaurant after seeing several reviews it rated highly. Walked in and waited several minutes to even be greeted by the staff. Got back to our seats in a small room with her only three tables. Everyone in our section was completely forgotten about. All three tables actually got up and left without receiving her food after waiting an hour. Yes, an hour. Our drinks were never brought to the table in that span of time. As we were walking her, the staff acted as if they could care less.

Usually this is a great place and our go to spot. But service tonight was abysmal, food came before drinks, no offer for dessert or night cap. When our meal was complete we were quickly rushed out to include lowering the lights to an unreasonable level when we were the only ones in the dining room.

Started off very good. The two apps and drinks we ordered were really good. Unfortunately soon after the first round the smoke detectors went off (not once three times). Staff was not able to mute so it was a tough rest of the evening. Our entrees were ok. Hopefully the next time we go we'll be smoke alarm free and we'll pick something else for our entrees.
