Litmus tests: Thai food

What dishes do you use to gauge the quality of a Thai restaurant by? Been thinking about this because I do so love some of the dishes that I believe originate in the north, like miang kum and haw moak, but outside of those, the vast majority of Thai menus in the US are virtually the exact same, from the noodles dishes to the curries...among those, do you have a benchmark for, say, drunken noodles or massaman?
