Mali Thai is a small place on Main at 15th which offers lunch specials in the $6-$7 range including the usual suspects - range of curries (including rice and salad) and some noodle dishes including pad thai. Nothing earth shattering but the curries are ok specially for the price - haven't tried the noodles.
Mandala Iki is on 4th across from the Safeway and offers a range of Chinois dishes for lunch; they run around $7-$8. Had the spicy Singapore noodles and Szechuan chicken with green beans - both tasty with a nice little kick. They offer brown rice with most of their specials which is nice change. http://brownricesushi.com/mandala/ind...
I am not saying either of these is anything more than decent value but I would appeciate hearing from others who have similar recommendations - never have too many reliable lunch places.
