The town of Boone has a surprisingly eclectic culinary scene, complete with farm-to-fork menus, cute brewpubs, and so much more. When you crave Thai or Vietnamese specialties, however, Sabeing Boone King is the place to go. This top takeout spot aims to transport visitors to the streets of Thailand or Vietnam with help from expertly prepared dishes such as pho and pad Thai.

Sabeing Boone King’s far-reaching menu also includes an excellent sushi selection and, while this is not the only sushi spot in town, it’s a great option when you prefer to combine exceptional rolls with a laid-back experience. Otherwise, feel free to order your meal family-style to share with loved ones. If you go this route, you can expect sizable portions — so you’ll either need a large appetite or the willingness to enjoy leftovers later.

Beverage selection is also important, as the teas at Sabeing Boone King taste wonderful. You can’t go wrong with the iced Thai tea on a hot day, but you’ll also find aromatic jasmine and ginger teas, plus sweetened or unsweetened iced tea. This restaurant is a local takeout favorite, as the service is swift — even during peak dinner hours when King Street is bustling. You may be out of luck if you want to eat onsite, but there are a few decent parks in town where you can enjoy your sushi with a view. Thankfully, the ordering online process is easy to navigate.

A few of our favorite menu items at Sabeing Boone King include the following:

Pad Seew
This classic stir-fry dish is a street food staple and absolutely worth trying. Topped with a rich, house-made sauce, it consists of flat rice noodles, egg, and a wonderful mix of vegetables: carrots, cabbage, scallions, and bean sprouts.

Papaya Salad
Providing the perfect blend of flavors, this papaya salad is sure to please. Served Thai or country style, it features a spicy sauce that incorporates fish sauce to great effect. Other essentials include carrots, tomatoes, and peanuts.

Butterfly Roll
One of many amazing options on the chef’s specialty sushi menu, this California roll is topped with avocado, shrimp, tempura flakes, and a flavorful eel sauce. You can also keep it simple with a standard California roll if desired.

Pho Dry Noodle
There are plenty of delicious types of pho available from Sabeing Boone King, but there’s nothing wrong with going beyond your typical favorites. Try a dry version of pho, complete with red pork and a special sauce. Depending on your personal preferences, you could opt for rice noodles or yellow noodles. Either will be amplified by the scallions, cilantro, and ground peanuts.

Green Curry
Yellow, red, and green curries are available at Sabeing Boone King. All are delicious in their own unique way. The green selection is loaded with bamboo, bell peppers, carrots, cabbage, and basil leaves. Watch out, for the green curry sauce is definitely spicy.

Whether you’re craving curry, pho, sushi, or something new, you will be blown away by the selection at Sabeing Boone King. Order takeout, and you can expect to enjoy expertly prepared dishes that are full of flavor.
