Modern Thai

Cynsa | Oct 1, 2009 07:56 AM

Walk through the door and step into a colonial setting - without the slowly rotating ceiling fans - or a brightly-hued modern art set. It is just a few doors down from Mayes Oyster House on Polk near Bush Street and parking is easy.
If you order the Crispy Papaya Salad $7.95, you'll be delighted by the crunch of fried delight with a confetti of tomato, purple cabbage, carrot, purple beans, peanuts, on romaine lettuce. Follow this with the Curry of Roast Duck with Lychee and Cherry Tomato with fried basil leaves $13.95 - to delve into its silky rich flavor. To kick up the heat, we added the Ground Chicken with chopped preserved Chinese olive on rice $7.95 - these are addictive flavors, I woke this morning with a major craving for this dish. Only the brave should request it Thai spicy.
