This Thai restaurant is pretty close to the JC so I went by today for lunch after hearing some good things.
Ive only been to the new thai place near RR square but JB beats this place hands down. Nothing I had (green curry, sate, fresh salad rolls) were life-altering but everything was well executed. I would gladly eat here again despite the brusque service which is understable considering the lunchtime rush.
The fresh rolls were pretty good -no peanut sauce but rather two rolls cut like sushi and covered in a sweet soy sauce. The sauce wasnt too overwhelming but would have preferred it on the side. The chile-garlic condiment was well used to cut this sweetness of the sauce. Filling was fried tofu ans assort veg.
I liked the sate because it was pounded thin and had some good charring going on. The peanut sauce was thinner and much tastier than other renditions I have had.
The green curry tasted of fresh chiles, coriander and cumin and had some nice kabocha...not bad.
The iced tea almost looked to have a mango hue --mango thai iced tea?
I am interested to try the Laab and other appetizers as well as my favorite curry the Mussaman.
