What a surprise
This small Thai restaurant is tucked away at a busy intersections strip mall. Now, I have had amazing experiences of the gastronomic kind in strip malls (See Sushi Ota), but I have to admit, I was not expecting this one. The decor is the first thing one notices when walking in. Very comfortable, and the ambiance makes you forget the restaurant is in the same space as a bar and a pregnancy center.
What made me excited about the experience was the owner. He and his wife have obviously placed their life and love into this restaurant, and it shows with the many return customers, the raves I heard from my mom after celebrating a friends birthday there, and in the food. Lunch is extremely reasonable. It comes with salad (home made dressing) and a main dish. My favorite: Pad SeeEw. Love it. Their beef was so flavorful, I knew it had not been thrown in the pan frozen. The rice was delicious, and so was the tea. The dessert (we had to try the purple ice cream with fried bananas) tucked the meal in nicely. If you are not close to this restaurant, but love Thai, and hate paying too much for just O.K food, then take the time to drive to Bangkok City Thai. You will be happy. I can almost guarantee it.
